I travelled to Siem Reap to discover amongst many things, the temples of Angkor Wat. During my planning I decided to book a room in Shinta Mani hotel and I got much more than I expected. I chose this hotel because I read about their foundation which trains young adults to become real professionals. $5 of the nightly room rate is donated to the foundation and is used to provide education and business training. When i visited the foundation and talked to the students, I realized how important this is for them and how it helps them to develop more skills. I also found that the highly trained students of the Shinta Mani foundation are also recruited by other hotels. Be interesting to see where.
In addition the hotel itself immerses you into the Angkor culture. It is a mixture of modern architecture and Angkor art attributes. One if my favourite things to do was relaxing at the swimming pool and sipping from one of the fresh smoothies, however i was also fascinated by Bonalai, their library. They have an impressive collection available of books and journals, and It is relaxing just to nose around and to gain more information about this magnificent place.
The rooms of the hotel provided all the necessary comforts and the staff were friendly and willing to answer all of my questions.
Shinta Mani is the perfect hotel to stay in Siem Reap, with a heart for responsible tourism as an added bonus!
