Shinta Mani Wild is due to open in November 2018
Cambodia is hot all year round and the best time to visit is during the dry season, which runs from November to April. It starts to get wetter in May and the wettest months are September and October. It is still possible to visit during this time as rain usually falls as short sharp storms. November is a fantastic month to visit Cambodia as it is very green after the rainy season and the lakes and rivers are full of water.
Bensley Collection - Shinta Mani Wild is a luxury tented camp set amongst 400 acres of lush forest overlapping 3 national parks. This is the first private wildlife and nature reserve in Cambodia, located around 3 hours from Phnom Penh or Sihanoukville.
Bensley Collection - Shinta Mani Wild boasts a spectacular location, tucked into the wildlife corridor which runs between Bokor and Kirirom national parks. Famed hotel designer and architect Bill Bensley has teamed-up with the local government and conservation organizations to protect this area from poaching and logging, whilst also providing a superb site for one of Cambodia's most hotly anticipated properties.
The 15 luxurious tents are raised above the ground, suspended over the edge of the waterfalls to allow the natural migratory movements of the forest inhabitants to continue below, and to provide sweeping views across the forest and river valley. Each tent is luxuriously designed in true Bensley style with tasteful local colors and fabrics, and fascinating curios to recall the age of explorers and la belle époque. Guests can choose from a Wild Tent, a Waterfall Tent, or an expansive Two Bedroom Tent, and indulge in luxurious extras such as an outdoor freestanding bathtub. A Bensley Butler will be on hand to assist with all requests.
Due to the wild setting and raised structure of the property, children under the age of 10 are not permitted at Bensley Collection - Shinta Mani Wild.
The Boulders Spa offers natural and organic spa treatments using products by Khmer Tonics. The camp is also set amongst beautiful natural scenery, with sweeping views across the river and jungle, best enjoyed from the comfort of your private deck or luxurious outdoor bathtub. A refreshing pool is located within the heart of the resort, and the resort’s zipline is the perfect way for adventurous souls to arrive in style. Locally sourced food will be served at the Waterfall Restaurant, and the Landing Zone Bar is the perfect spot for an evening drink.
Activities at Bensley Collection - Shinta Mani Wild are both creative and varied, limited only by the imagination of the guests and their guides. Explore the nearby estuarine waterway from the comfort of a luxury expedition boat or embark on foot into the jungle with the rangers to study the forest and its resident wildlife and examine findings from camera traps. Enjoy a cooking class with a difference, as the talented local chef guides you through the jungle foraging for wild fungi, plants and fruits.
