Shinta Mani Hotels will launch its flagship Bensley Collection property in mid-December 2017, comprising 10 two-level villas in Siem Reap.
In collaboration with architect Bill Bensley, Shinta Mani Hotels ‘Bensley Collection’ is designed as Bensley likes to live; surrounded by private gardens, with comfortable beds with custom tailored Khmer bedsheets, in theme with his book ‘Escapism’.
On arrival at Siem Reap’s International airport, guests will be fast tracked through immigration and to an arrival ceremony experience awaits. Each villa features carvings of the ‘hands of meditation’, a nine-metre private indoor lap pool and gardens with a rooftop living room, in 156 sqm of space across two pavilions including a glass bathroom. A three-dimensional mural portrays Khmer king Jayavarman’s robe. Six of the villas can be combined into three 312-sqm two-bedroom villas.
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. The Bensley Butlers will provide a rooftop or poolside BBQ, set up the sky bed or scatter petals in the pool. A proportion of the daily room rate will be donated to the non-profit Shinta Mani Foundation, to support health, education and development programmes for the less fortunate.
The bed and breakfast package includes fast track immigration on arrival at Siem Reap international airport; private round trip transfers; personal Bensley butler; express check in and express in-villa check out; unpacking on arrival and packing before departure; welcome champagne / amenities / massage; breakfast, high-tea and fruit; laundry; remork (tuk tuk) transportation within Siem Reap 24 hours, and the full board package also includes lunch and dinner; free flow mini bar of wine, beer and soft drinks; daily sunset cocktails; sightseeing tour to Angkor Wat and sunrise / sunset to Pra Rup Temple.
