The Shinta Mani Shack in Siem Reap is far from the broken-down wooden hut that its name suggests. It’s a little slice of chic realness tucked between The Royal Gardens and the Old Market.
It has a fantastic position in the French Quarter, so the big tourist sights like Angkor Wat aren’t really that far away. Add to that its luxurious and intricate design, as well as the fantastic views of the tropical gardens and you’ll soon realise why this hotel is so popular.
The Shinta Mani Shack is built around a quiet courtyard and has 62 rooms. The view from the first floor is amazing; it looks out over the swimming pools and exotic gardens. Don’t worry if you don’t get a pool view however, as the leafy streetscape is pretty spectacular too.
There’s plenty to discover here, including a range of restaurants to suit all tastes. From traditional Cambodian dishes to western steakhouse meals, you won’t be disappointed.
The hotel also puts on cooking classes to entertain its guests. Make the most of this, as they’ll teach you to cook in the traditional Khmer style. You can bring the recipes home, so you’ll always have something connecting you back to this magical place.
The Shinta Mani Spa is the perfect place to stay after a long day exploring. They blend traditional and modern healing and relaxation techniques to make a series of treatments to help you relax and reduce stress. It’s definitely worth a visit or two!
Why We Love It
We love the Shinta Mani Shack because even though it’s part of a bigger resort, you still get that small intimate hotel feel, with a dose of chic thrown in.
