There’s something to be said about always being welcomed at a hotel with a kind smile and a “Welcome Home” greeting. Staying at the Shinta Mani Shack felt like being at someone’s home. The staff was the absolute highlight of the stay. Easily the best staff we ever encountered.

This was a little touch of luxury - and the staff could not be more helpful or polite. The food was excellent and enjoying a little cocktail or 2 in the pool was heaven. The rooms were clean and tidy and the beds super comfortable with clean crisp white bed linen. The decor was

The most beautiful swimming pool ever. The staff was the warmest, sweetest, most helpful group of people you could ever ask for. The coffee was tops! I would practically be willing to travel to Cambodia just to stay there, and that's a long way! What can I say, its one of those

Everything about this wonderful hotel is first class. It is a real gem so wonderfully relaxing after a day at the temples. Fantastic location smiling attentive staff nothing to much trouble. Beautiful room bed felt like we were sleeping on air and spotlessly clean

Depends what you're wanting to do. Angkor is now a major tourist destination. You don't need to pre-book but you need to decide what you want to see and how long you've got. Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom and Bayon are essential. You can squeeze all 3 in a day but you're better off doing it in two chunks. If you're interested in a history then a guide is good and the hotel can advise. But if you just want to gaze then a guide book or even the Lonely Planet is enough. I've been a few times. I was there over Chinese New Year which I found frankly depressing. Thousands taking selfies. But it is an extraordinary place. Just manage your expectations.

Approximately $22 USD that was with shinta Marni. You probably could do it cheaper. It was a great service though.

It is a family place, we stayed there in August with another couple with 2 kids and they had a suite for the 4 of them. It is around 10 minutes in a tuk tuk to Angkor Wat. They can also arrange visits to some of the far temples. Don't know about gym because temple sightseeing is already a very good gym experience and with a view :-)
