Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The Hotel décor and vibe was exceptional. The property is bold, modern and eccentric with a vibrant atmosphere. The staff and service is exceptional and the fact that it has the Shinta Mani Foundation and Foundation Gift Shop means I was able to enjoy the luxuries it offers whilst also giving back to the local community.

My family rented three rooms for four nights in late December 2017. The service at the front desk, in the restaurant, and around the hallways was friendly and excellent. While we were there, we enjoyed breakfast every day and dinner one night. We appreciated Rose's help at our meals.

I used the pool to swim laps every day. The only negative that I noticed was a shortage every day of lounge chairs around the pool.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel while visiting the Angkor temples, and it was a very pleasant stay. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel room was comfortable and the property is trendy and modern. The food at the restaurant was delicious, including the complimentary breakfast. I would definitely stay here again!

Wow....they couldn’t be any nicer at the Shinta Mani Shack. We stayed here years ago, before the renovations. We remembered how great the staff were. Well things are even better now. You feel like royalty from the minute you walk in.

There’s a funky lobby and great vibe about the whole place. The room is simple yet nicely appointed. Quiet and dark.

Breakfast by the pool is beautiful and serene. As I write this from a less than mediocre hotel in Sihanoukville, I’m craving the beautiful, hospitable service and the serenity of Shinta Mani

This lovely hotel was ‘home’ for 2 nights. Our room on the ground floor overlooked the beautiful gardens & pool area.
Ratanak who is the Manager was friendly & welcoming as were her staff some of who were very mischievous. My friend fell up some steps & the concern of all the staff was much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble even down to a staff member coming with us to find a particular shoe shop that made the footwear worn by the staff.
Should I be fortunate enough to return to this beautiful place I would happily return to Shinta Mani Shack.
Unfortunately I don’t have any photos as they have yet to be downloaded from my camera!

Stayed: October 2017, traveled with friends
