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, two hours’ drive from Phnom Phen.
Located along 1.5 kilometres of river and waterfalls, Bensley has set out to create his most ambitious luxury camp project to date. This super-luxe property will have 15 100 sqm custom designed tents elevated over the swift moving water and waterfalls, providing a view and experience unlike any other resort in Asia. Each tent will be meticulously designed to invoke the feeling of what it would have been like on a luxury safari in the jungles of Cambodia with Jacky O.
Shinta Mani Wild – Bensley Collection will combine world class design, hospitality and conservation. Bensley describes the project as ‘a utopia of sustainability’; by making the lowest possible impact on the land and doubling as a research and conservation centre it will create a new model that will not only conserve and protect threatened wildlands, but also create new and sustainable opportunities for the people that traditionally call these lands home
Shinta Mani Wild – Bensley Collection is an exercise in extreme ingenuity where guests can feast on delicacies grown and foraged from the surrounding land and encounter extraordinary wildlife.

A luxury adventure driven by creative experiences, guests will have more activity options than time to do them. To the southeast of this private sanctuary, guests will be able to spend a day exploring the untrammeled waterways of South East Asia’s last wild estuarine ecosystem aboard one of Shinta Mani Wild’s private, Bensley-designed, fully-equipped luxury expedition boats. To the north, guests will be able to accompany rangers and researchers as they check camera traps and study the wild forests and their inhabitants – a unique opportunity to explore these untamed lands with the people that know them best.
Perched on the edge of the sanctuary’s biggest waterfall is the “Landing Zone Bar” and “Waterfall Restaurant” where guests will be able to sample locally inspired food with ingredients sourced through the Shinta Mani Foundation, foraged from the surrounding forests and on occasion flown in from all corners of the globe.
Restaurants include: Landing Zone Bar, Waterfall Restaurant.
