Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The Bensley Collection – Shinta Mani Siem Reap is in the heart of Siem Reap in its attractive French Quarter, not far from Angkor Wat.

Rooms at Bensley Collection – Shinta Mani Siem Reap

The 10 two-storey Art Deco-inspired villas are simply gorgeous and allow complete privacy and ultimate luxury under the protection of Siem Reap's ancient canopy of palace trees. They come with private pools set in the lush tropical gardens, and Bensley Butlers, alongside touches such as plush beds with tailor-made Khmer-inspired bed sheets, golden cushions, golden bamboo bedside towers, custom-designed furniture and handcrafted lights.  

The indoor/outdoor floor-to-ceiling glass bathrooms have garden views and bathtubs under the stars - you can even set up a sky bed to sleep beneath the stars if you wish. The living spaces have three-dimensional murals with carvings inspired by the folds of the robes of Jayavarman, a Khmer king known for his pioneering spirit.

Food & Drink

Dine on delicious traditional Khmer cuisine when and how you like, from breakfast in bed to evening dinner, cocktails and canapés on your private rooftop, or enjoy a tailor-made barbecue created for you in your villa and dine like a Khmer king.

You can also visit the restaurants of Shinta Mani Angkor and Shinta Mani Shack, such as the signature Kroya restaurant – try its seven-course Khmer-inspired tasting menu - and head to the iconic Bensley's Bar for an evening cocktail or two after exploring Angkor Wat.


Unwind in style with an indulgent spa treatment using house-made Khmer ingredients such as fragrant herbs, which you can enjoy on the rooftop or in the privacy of your villa, or relax with some yoga or meditation. Cool off with a dip in your very own pool.
