“I am absolutely thrilled to join Shinta Mani Hotels and to be chosen to manage this incredible property which has already been touted as one of the most highly anticipated hotel openings in the world for 2018 by FORBES Magazine,” said Sangjay.   “It addition to the fact that this property will be unlike any other in Asia, I’m particularly excited about the conservation work we will be doing with local partners to protect this wildlife corridor from poaching, mining and logging.

Shinta Mani Wild – Bensley Collection is a radical new concept for a unique luxury tented camp experience within the remote wilderness of the Southern Cardamom National Park, three hours’ drive from Phnom Phen.

The property is located along 1.5 kilometres of river and waterfalls in a 800 hectare private nature sanctuary. Bensley has set out to create his most ambitious luxury camp project to date, which will feature fifteen 100sqm custom designed tents elevated over the swift moving waters and waterfalls, providing a view and experience unlike any other resort in Asia.  Each tent will be meticulously designed to invoke the feeling of being on a glamourous 1960s luxury safari in the jungles of Cambodia with the fabulous Jacky O’ who visited the Kingdom in 1967.
