About Shinta Mani Wild

Shinta Mani Wild comprises of 15 luxury tents along the river's edge in the Cardamom National Park, a completely new concept for luxury experience in Cambodia, combining world class hospitality and conservation to create a new model for public/private partnerships that will not only conserve and protect threatened wildlands, but will also create new and sustainable opportunities for the people that traditionally call these lands home.

Each of the 15 tents of approximately 100 sqm is perched over running waters and waterfalls, providing a view and experience unlike any other resort in Asia. Each tent has been meticulously designed to invoke the feeling of true luxury safari with a colonial twist, set deep in the jungles of Cambodia.

Location

The South Cardamom National Park is Cambodia’s newest and largest National Park
covering a massive 866,930 hectares (2,142,231 acres) and is one of the last great
wilderness areas of South East Asia. A wild coast of pristine estuaries gives way to a
majestic mountain range covered in tropical rainforest. Bensley Collection - Shinta
Mani Wild is nestled in a 350 hectare (860 acres) valley between the Phnom Bokor
and Kirirom National Parks.

How to get there

Getting to the mountains from either Siem Reap or Phnom Penh is shockingly easy. While your trip along the road may not be the easiest, the complications are few. You will also not have to spend time waiting for connections. You will need to make but one ascent up the stairs of the bus you take and sit tight until you arrive.

Travel time from Bangkok will be around 8 hours and is the most complex of all the journeys. However, its stopovers and changes are very manageable when you only have six hours to endure

When to go

The Cardamom Mountains receive the heaviest rainfall in the entire country. While the air is very clear after rains pour down, and while you may be able to grab some electric shots of the gloomy clouds rolling in over the treetops, it doesn’t make for the best weather to go hiking in. Spirits are inevitably dampened and your shoes remain constantly sludgy. To get the most out of your experience, and to have the water of the waterfalls be a welcome contrast to your hot and sweaty shoulders, plan your trip between the months of October and April.

Important Information

Proceeds from the hotel go to community upliftment.
