Stayed here for one night with two friends and we were SO SAD to leave. best hotel and best service that we've ever experienced at a hotel. as soon as we got off our tuk tuk, we were greeted with delicious beverages and cold towels and the amazing service continued throughout our stay. highlights below:

KOL - best manager ever. monks happened to stop by the hotel while we were eating breakfast outside on the swinging daybeds and Kol offered us the humbling experience to partake in the almsgiving ceremony with the hotel staff.
VANNAK - catered to our needs the moment we got there and remembered us the next morning while we were having breakfast. she stopped by our table and got us a late checkout!
THAVDY - made sure that our stay was completely up to par at shinta mani club and walked us across to shinta mani resort for lunch to make sure we got there okay. what a sweetie.
FOOD - AMAZING. the free breakfast included SO much from traditional cambodian cuisine to a continental spread. be sure to try the banana wrapped bacons at the resort restaurant. to die for!
ROOMS - sleek and modern design. wish my apartment looked like this.
LOCATION - about a 10 minute walk from downtown. super convenient and easy to find. about 15-20 minute car ride from the airport, which costs about $10 US dollars.

Kind of broke my heart sometimes to see all of the staff bending over backwards to cater to our needs, but totally understand that this is the cambodian culture. beautiful people and can't wait to come back here again SOON!

My partner and I recently stayed for four nights at the Shinta Mani Club hotel - it certainly lives up to its reputation! The staff are fantastic and go out of their way to help and make sure that your stay is everything it should be.
Our room was lovely, the whole place oozed calm and relaxation. We enjoyed being able to borrow DVDs to watch (History of Angkor Wat and Tomb Raider were very fitting) after long days around the temples. We loved hearing about the work of the foundation - the staff love to talk about it and were very enthusiastic.
We met Mr Snar, one of the Shinta Mani tuk tuk drivers, on our first day and he became our guide and driver for the rest of our stay - he was great - always on time and always had ideas about what we should see and where to go - and places to get great photos. He really helped to make our holiday.
The location is great - we walked into town most evenings and walked to Phare, the circus - but tuk tuks are plentiful and will cost $1 or $2 to get into town if you are too tired!
If you are looking at this and wondering whether to stay here - just do it!

We were lucky enough to have 14 nights at Shinta mani resort ,we could not fault one thing . Rooms offered everything ,plus more .Beds pillows . were the comfiest I have ever slept in.,We were treated like a king and queen. The staff were amazing, and obviously love their job and are always happy and obliging. When breakfast staff discovered I was coeliac, and needed gluten free, every morning I was given a freshly made treat. It was these special touches that made our stay wonderful.

We would like to congratulate Christian , the General Manager, who obviously loves his role and the Cambodian people. He is a true professional and dedicated to the position which he holds.
We cannot recommend Shinta Mani highly enough. Do yourself a favour and stay there.

This is one amazing hotel. The service is outstanding--both professional as well as downright kind and helpful. The decor is lovely--art, flowers, furniture, rooms, and even the basic architecture of the place is all thought-through and peaceful.

The Shinta Mani Club is a perfect spot for a romantic trip or for a peaceful and relaxing getaway by oneself (the infinity lap pool is gorgeous). The Shinta Mani Resort is larger, and perfect for families, with a large pool set in a beautifully landscaped center court.

Plus, in a country where there is extreme poverty and great need, the Shinta Mani foundation gives training to young people in the hospitality industry. So you can feel good about spending your money here.

There are not enough words to describe what a wonderful hotel this is. From the cool jasmine scented towels on arrival to the fresh flowers in the room everything is perfect. The included breakfast sets you up for the day, the free water and iceblocks poolside are a welcome surprise and the body lotion in the bathroom is superb. But the best thing about this hotel is the staff. We have travelled extensively in and around asia and have never been treated so specially as we were here. I cannot recommend the shinta mani highly enough and look forward to returning again soon!

Truly enjoyed our three night experience at the Shinta Mani Siem Reap.

Very well designed hotel (art, flower arrangements, architecture, furniture) provided for a relaxing and refreshing time between our temple excursions.

The buffet breakfast is very good (we got recipe) but I advise you to try the (included) cooked breakfast. Our favorites were the Cambodian Noodle soup and the Eggs Benedict.

The Shinta Mani is, without a question, one of the nicest hotels I've ever visited. I stayed for two nights and had a lot of trouble leaving. You know the feeling of relief when you finally return home from a holiday? The comfort you feel slinking into your own bed after days in a foreign land? Well, after my brief stay at the Shinta Mani, I was actually disappointed to return home!!

The design of the Shinta Mani is uber chic and stylish, the service is impeccable, the atmosphere is remarkable, the food and drink are top notch. I literally have nothing bad to say about this place.
