Shinta Mani Wild is a rare treat, one of the few resorts that can truly claim to be a unique place to stay in Cambodia, and beyond.
As one of the flagship Bill Bensley-designed properties, Shinta Mani Wild excels with its riverside setting, easy access to the natural treasures of Kirirom, Bokor and Cardamom National Parks plus a charming décor and design that feels fresh out of a Tintin adventure novel. As you enter your luxury tent then, think vintage travel chests and rolltop bathtubs, antique artefacts and retro-style sofas throughout. It may look nostalgic, but this is every bit the high-end jungle retreat too, as can be seen in the onsite spa, enchanting restaurant overlooking nearby rapids and a lounge bar location amidst the trees that won’t soon be forgotten, just wait for sunsets here!
The grounds and surrounds at Shinta Mani Wild are one thing, though it’s what lies beyond that soon becomes just as enticing as the camp itself. Active types will love the kayaking and zip-lining adventures for example, while wildlife enthusiasts really can take their pick from an endless list of outings, in the company of handpicked expert guides. Birding tours, nature trails, botany walks, mammal spotting and all manner of wildlife treks are available in each of the three national parks that border Shinta Mani Wild and being such an ethically-run resort, there are conservation projects and initiatives to learn of in the region too.
Overall, if looking to hide away in pristine rainforest during your Cambodian adventure, though not compromise on comfort, style, service or character, Shinta Mani Wild luxury tented camp is probably the place for you.
The first and most striking thing about each of the 15 luxury tents at Shinta Mani Wild is their irresistible vintage décor of retro fans and old-world chests, lamps and books, all carefully placed through a tented room that boasts a generous floorplan of over 1,000sq ft. There are hand-carved ornaments dotted throughout, candles, trinkets and kitsch clocks, all playing their part in what is a fun, though stylish and memorable space. Dark wood floors, sofas, king-size beds and an outdoor deck complete with its own rolltop bathtub are all impressive extras too; it’s easy to forget your luxury accommodation at Shina Mani Wild is actually in the heart of rainforest wilderness, such as its style and standard. Of the 15 available luxury tents, there is just one two-bedroom option for families, so be sure to book early.
Restaurants and Bars
During your tour of Cambodia, few dining experiences will have a more memorable setting than the one to be found at Shinta Mani Wild’s Waterfall Restaurant which, as the name suggests, overlooks a picturesque cascade nearby. Local, ethically-sourced produce – some of which comes directly from the forest itself – complements a seasonal menu packed with Khmer-inspired cuisine here, it all fits together just perfectly.
Landing Zone Bar
Head to the Landing Zone Bar for a pretty special setting to enjoy your evening aperitif, accompanied by spectacular jungle views and picture-perfect sunsets too; enchanting.
Activities and Entertainment
Shinta Mani Wild has easy access to the Kirirom, Bokor and Cardamom National Parks as it borders all three, so wildlife watching opportunities and outdoor excursions are endless here. What’s more, the owners have a keen eye on conservation and know these forests well, so you’ll be in the hands of their trusted, knowledgeable guides for the best birdwatching routes, nature trails, viewpoints and waterfalls around the region. There’s also an onsite zip-lining adventure and rafting available directly from the resort, making great use of its enviable riverside spot.
The main luxury at Shinta Mani Wild is, of course, its unbeatable riverside location and access to the surrounding national parks. When you are back at camp, however, the creature comforts certainly don’t stop coming with an onsite spa specialising in natural healing and relaxation therapies, Wi-Fi throughout and more than one comfortable lounge or outdoor area to unwind in.
