There's a reason why Shinta Mani is number 1. In fact, there are a lot of reasons.
Amazing service. A member of staff is never far away if you have a question, need a cold towel or a drink which were so welcoming after a hot day at the temples.
I was upgraded to the Club which was beautiful but you can use the facilities at the resort over the road too. A quiet lap pool, huge bedrooms and amazing tv and music facilities in the room. So quiet and tasty cookies provided at turndown. The bed was sooo comfortable!
Breakfast was quite simply the best I have had in SE Asia. A full buffet of pastries, fruit, cereals and local specialties plus a menu with cooked breakfast. I had the eggs benedict which was amazing (4 months in SE Asia and I've craved a bit of western food!)
The pool at the resort over the road is bigger and gets more sun if you want to top up your tan!
I ate at the hotel for the three nights I stayed here as I had an extra week in a different hotel in siem reap to explore the local restaurants. Not the cheapest but worth it.
The food was beautiful - both in the club and the resort. The staff are friendly and I had great chats with them whilst lounging on a swinging day bed in the club.
It's great that some of your hotel rate goes to the shinta mani foundation which supports the local community too.
Save up and stay here for a few nights. I wish I could have stayed here for my whole trip!
