adventure is now open in the form of an American steakhouse.
The Steakhouse, which is now located across the road from
the hotel in the grounds of Shinta Mani Shack, boasts one of
the most complete wine lists in Siem Reap and the bar offers a
selection of handpicked spirits and cocktails.

The Shinta Mani Hotel’s innovative business model combines a for-profit hotel with a non-profit institute that trains young under-privileged Cambodians in all aspects of hotel operations on a free of charge basis. They are provided with the skills they need to find employment and to enjoy a brighter future. The vision is to see a prosperous Cambodia where families and communities are strong and become centres of activity and support that can help them to escape the devastation of a grinding cycle of poverty. Their project includes providing education for young adults all around Cambodia, farming projects, clean water, healthcare, future livelihoods and providing food, shelter and clothing for families suffering from sudden disaster or emergency need, along with financial assistance in the form of interest-free loans to local entrepreneurs.
During your visit, get to know Shinta Mani “Shop With A Heart,” a boutique selling locally made products that are both beautiful and well crafted. The shop supports local artisans and businesses and all profit from the shop goes to support community projects for rural villagers in Siem Reap through the Shinta Mani Foundation’s work.
