As Cambodia removes testing for international travellers, Shinta Mani Hotels have rebranded their Shinta Mani Angkor and Bensley Collection Pool Villas to reimagine the Khmer experience for the luxury traveller. 

Designed by acclaimed Architect and Designer, Bill Bensley, Shinta Mani Angkor and Bensley Collection Pool Villas are located in the leafy French Quarter of Siem Reap between the Royal Gardens and the Old Market area; just footsteps from the river and 15 minutes from the magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Temples of Angkor Wat.

Anthony Lark, Executive Director of HMD Asia, which owns and manages Shinta Mani Hotels  said,  “Our entire team is thrilled to welcome guests back to our beautiful hotel.  We have been busy reimagining the very best experiences at Angkor Wat’s temples and our favourite galleries, restaurants and cafés to explore in the old French Quarter of Siem Reap, which has been totally beautifully restored in the last year.

“There has never been a better time to visit Siem Reap, especially with flights now direct from Singapore, Bangkok and other regional destinations. The recent cancellation of the need to show a negative PCR test before arriving in Cambodia, elimination of the requirement for a rapid test upon arrival and with granting of Visa’s on Arrival, Cambodia is leading the region in getting back to normal.”
