At the junction of the Kirirom, Bokor and Cardamom parks in Cambodia sits the latest triumph of design by Bill Bensley – a wilderness sibling to the super-chic Bensley Collection - Shinta Mani Siem Reap.
Created through public and private partnership, Shinta Mani Wild fuses Bensley’s signature design and hospitality with conservation credentials to protect a region from the destructive effects of poaching, mining and deforestation and provide employment for a rural population.
The result is a luxury camp recalling the golden age of safari, with 15 luxury tents sitting on stilts along a 1.5km stretch of pristine river and waterfalls, surrounded by verdant rainforest inhabited by wild elephant and gibbons. Tents are generously proportioned, with classic safari furnishings, a sprinkling of Khmer artefacts and a hint of 1920’s nostalgia.
Bensley Collection - Shinta Mani Wild perfectly complements the excitement of Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, providing a rewarding insight into rural Cambodia, its forests, wildlife and people.
