Siem Reap is really a fantastic town and of course the temples of Angkor are breathtaking! I wasn't only amazed by the beauty and complexity of the temples but also by the hotel where I stayed in.
Shinta Mani’s design is inspired by the corridors of Angkor Wat and is a gallery of exceptional Angkorian art. My room contained a unique wall piece of Apsara dancing and handcrafted decorations. The staff knows how to pamper their guests. Every time when I enter or was just walking through the aisles they offered me a cold fresh towel. On arrival I found a fruit platter and a small bag of cookies in my room to welcome me.
When talking to the staff, they informed me that they are trained in the Shinta Mani Foundation. It is a development center for young Cambodians to learn about hospitality. A part of the fee I paid for the room will go to the foundation. Which is great to know.
In the morning I had breakfast in the swinging beds outside at the restaurant. Coming from one bed and going to another one is good way to wake up. I love quiet and soft mornings and in addition to a great breakfast, this is exactly what I got when staying at Shinta Mani. It is so different from any other hotel I stayed in. The comfy and luxurious rooms provide an excellent sleep at night. Its design, service and comfort make it one of the best hotels in Siem Reap.
