Following the success of the first Bensley Collection property, Bensley Collection – Shinta Mani Angkor, an enclave of 10 luxurious Khmer inspired pool villas which opened in Siem Reap in December 2017, Bensley Collection – Shinta Mani Wild will open on 1 November 2018.
Nestled deep within Cambodia’s South Cardamom National Park Wilderness in a pristine wildlife corridor three hours’ drive south of Phnom Penh, Bensley Collection – Shinta Mani Wild will offer a radical new concept for a luxury tented camp experience. Guests will arrive at the gate lounge by road or helicopter from where they can enjoy a unique adrenalin-filled entry to the resort via a 380 meter (1,247 ft) zip line over river and waterfalls, arriving ‘Indiana Jones style’ in the Landing Zone Bar.
Bensley who was inducted into Hospitality Design’s Platinum Circle hall of fame in New York in 2017, has set out to create his most ambitious and extravagant luxury tented camp project to date. Fifteen customized luxury tents perched over 1.5 kilometers (just under 1 mile) of river and waterfalls will provide a view and experience unlike any other resort in Asia.
The fourteen one-bedroom tents (100 sqm or 1,076 sq ft) and one two-bedroom tent (140 sqm or 1,507 sq ft) have been meticulously designed to invoke the grandeur of what it would have been like to be on a luxury safari in the jungles of Cambodia with Jacky O’ who travelled throughout the Kingdom with King Sihanouk in 1967.
