We just stayed at Shinta Mani Shack for 4 nights having booked at the Shinta Mani Angkor but upgraded to a Junior Suite in the Shack (why this name?). From the minute we entered the fabulously colourful foyer with the amazing, smiling and friendly staff our stay was just perfect. Our room was on the top floor and was beautifully decorated in soothing yellow and grey colours with every amenity you could wish for. The bed was extremely comfortable although it was a little tricky working out the light switches in the suite. Breakfast around the beautiful pool was great and the service was impeccable. The pool is very welcoming after temple trekking! The location of the hotel is terrific and it is an easy walk to lots of places in Siem Reap although of course there is always a tuk tuk waiting at the front door. The cold towel and cold water on each return to the hotel is a lovely touch as well. The spa is a peaceful and calming place to visit as well! All the staff at the hotel are always smiling and ready to say hello or have a chat but a special mention must be made to Ratanak, the house manager, who does an amazing job and seems to be always at the right place at the right time!
