Shinta Mani Angkor – Bensley Collection Opening mid- December 2017

September 18, 2017 Luxury Hotels No Comments Email Email

Shinta Mani Hotels will launch its first highly anticipated flagship Bensley Collection property in mid-December 2017.  Comprising 10 super-luxe expansive two-level villas in the cultural heart of the historic town of Siem Reap, Shinta Mani Angkor – Bensley Collection will totally redefine the luxury market in Cambodia.

In collaboration with acclaimed designer and architect Bill Bensley, Shinta Mani Hotels ‘Bensley Collection’, will be an exclusive portfolio of super luxe hotels and resorts showcasing visionary concepts, extra-ordinary design and bespoke service – the very essence of ‘Bensley Collection’.

In creating his collection, Bensley has assumed complete freedom to let his famed creative spirit run free and showcase his masterful skill in crafting luxury experiences with his unique personal brilliance.   He has designed the villas as he likes to live; surrounded by lush gardens which are completely private.  Knowing the importance of sleep, Bill has designed the fluffiest most comfortable beds imaginable, with custom tailored Khmer inspired bedsheets and a plethora of feather or ‘as you like’ pillows.  Bill has personally overseen every detail of design and service to ensure an innovative type of indulgence he calls ‘escapism’ (also the title of his incredible book) and one that guests will long remember and want to experience again and again.

On arrival at Siem Reap’s International airport, guests will be fast tracked through immigration and whisked away to the secluded entrance of the Villas where a unique arrival ceremony experience awaits.

Under the ancient canopy of Siem Reap’s Palace trees, each villa will offer its residents total privacy and ultimate luxury, complete with their own Bill Bensley lush tropical garden that literally brings the outside in.  From its dramatic high walled façade with a monumental scale three-dimensional carving portraying the ‘hands of meditation” to signify spiritual perfection, to the oversized 9 meter private indoor lap pool and gardens with a rooftop living room, the 10 super-chic, luxurious two level art deco-inspired villas will delight, surprise and inspire its guests as they luxuriate in a Khmer Kingdom of their own.

Each exquisite villa will offer 156 sqm of space across two pavilions including a floor to ceiling glassed bathroom with views over the garden and the super-chic outdoor bath.  Inside the living space, over-size three-dimensional murals have been carved to portray the rippling folds of Jayavarman’s robe – one of the Khmer Kings who reigned from 1181-1218 and was known for his powerful, pioneering spirit – the perfect complement to such incredible surroundings.

Six of the villas are able to be combined into three 312 square meter two bedroom villas (each with its own pool) to accommodate a family or friends travelling together.

Guests will have full use of the restaurants, bars, Shinta Mani Spa by Khmer Tonics and facilities in the adjacent Shinta Mani Hotels, or can have personal service from any outlets in their villa.

Then there’s the Bensley Butlers – an elite group of hand-selected hospitality professionals that live and breathe the guests’ experience – there when they are needed and invisible when they are not!  If you want petals scattered for a romantic outdoor bath, a rooftop or poolside BBQ, or to set up the sky bed so you can sleep under the stars in your oversize rooftop daybed, just call them.  This small but highly trained band of butlers, under the helm of Head Butler Mac, are traditionally trained, endlessly resourceful and will look after all the guests’ needs while in residence at Shinta Mani Angkor – Bensley Collection, ensuring a flawless stay where everything is exactly as it should be, from the unique sense of arrival to the reluctant departure of each guest.

A proportion of the daily room rate will be donated to the non-profit Shinta Mani Foundation created by the owner, to support health, education and development programmes for the less fortunate in the community.  Please visit www.shintamanifoundation.org  for more information.

There are two ways to enjoy the villas – on a bed and breakfast basis, or as Bensley likes to travel, full on – totally immersed in the culture and nature with no limits.  Eat what you like, drink what you like, see the most interesting sites, and never sign a bill.
