“A place to let forget the rat race of daily life...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Siem Reap with famous Angkor Wat has everything for an exciting stay. Checking out the temples of Angkor requires afterwards a perfect hotel to relax from heat and wallow in the memories of the day. The Shinta Mani Resort has a beautiful garden and pool area, perfect rooms with anything you need, gourmet breakfast buffet and a staff which is always in place when you need support or a kindly advice. For me a perfect stay to visit Angkor and Floating villiges on the Tonle Sap lake. Check it out!

Room Tip: All the rooms (as far as I know) have a view to the garden with pool. Choose a room on the ground fl...

Absolutely fantastic in every way, from the friendly and very attentive staff, gorgeous modern rooms which were very spacious including a massive shower, beautiful floral arrangements and smells of peppermint wafting through the corridors. Two pools, we preferred the bigger one, and breakfast dining from swinging seats was fun. We didn't want to leave, made to feel like we were at home

We had a great stay at the Shinta Mani. The little touches they have, such as the beautiful fresh flowers and cold rose-scented towels offered to you when you come back sweaty from a day out, was really nice. The service was impeccable and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. We originally had concerns that our pool-side room would be noisy, but it wasn't at all. It was a great oasis to escape to after sightseeing in the heat, yet a very short tuk tuk ride to lively Pub Street. We also didn't have any mosquito problems, which I hear can be common in other places. We want to especially thank Sophear for accommodating our late check out.

I travel extensively throughout SE Asia, and I often have many friends who travel with me. In my travels, staying at some of the very best hotels in Bali, Yogyakarta, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia, I must say that Shinta Mani Resort was my favorite place. While many hotels have breathtaking scenery and luxurious interiors, Shinta Mani seems to have perfected the art of customer service. Their staff are helpful and they seem to take great effort to ensure our stay is memorable and enjoyable. That made our stay truly special. One day, after a hot day of touring temples, we arrived back at the hotel and Christian, the General manager I believe, happened to be standing in the driveway. With a big smile he welcomed us back at Shinta Mani by opening our car door and handed us a tray of moist cool towels to freshen up! Its location is a short 10 minute walk into town. Furthermore, I think its price of room is a very reasonable and a bargain for its quality. I have been to Siem Reap many times and stayed at many hotels, but my recent experience last December convinced me that Shinta Mani will be my recommendation for any of my friends visiting Siem Reap. BRAVO! GOOD JOB to all!

I truly enjoyed my stay at the Shinta Mani Resort and have nothing but good comments. Whereby the most outstanding is the relaxing atmosphere while still being in a very central location in Siem Reap. The service is very friendly and staff has always a smile for you. The Breakfast is very good and rooms are what one expects from a hotel in this category.

The Shinta Mani Resort has to rank with the best! The room was so comfortable with a lot of little extras such as fresh flowers every day and cookies at bedtime. The staff was fantastic: knowledgeable and super helpful. Every time we returned to the hotel we were greeted with a cold towel which was just the thing after a hot expedition. Location superb. Would highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel will be one that stands out in our memories from the peaceful environment to the outstanding personnel. The services are impeccable but what impressed us most was the genuine welcoming attitude that was displayed at all times...no exception. The gracious warmth of everyone we encountered from the restaurant(s) to the spa gave us the opportunity to experience the outstanding training that is being provided by the owners. There was a little confusion when we arrived about whether our reservations were in the "Club" or the "Resort". It was handled well but I would caution that it be made clear ahead of time. My husband and I have no difficulty with stairs but since there is no elevator, some guests may want to opt out of walking up three flights of stairs.
