“Luxury tented camp reserve”

One of the most anticipated hotel openings will have you going wild for glamping with a mix of pampering luxury and raw nature. The use of the word “wild” in the name isn’t for effect either – the private wildlife and nature reserve the tented camp occupies overlaps three national parks. The 1.5 kilometers of waterfall-peppered riverbank makes for a stunning backdrop for the 15 sophisticated tents, all individually designed to feel as if you’re on a luxury safari with Jackie O.

Best time to visit : October to April

Just north of Headquarters and the Raging Big Sister Falls floats tent #6 over the widest but shallow tributary #3. The approach is spectacular. One strolls just above shallow rapids (monsoon season) on a succession of narrow wooden walkways that dances around this part of the jungle that thrives on wet roots. The Jungle Capsule with simple doubled bedded accommodation works well as an add-on to this tent.

The Headquarters
The Headquarters
The Headquarters is the home of dining at Shinta Mani Wild. Be it a quick breakfast before your sunrise hike, or a leisurely foraged dinner, no Headquarter experience is alike! Every meal is carefully curated by the chefs to introduce you to something unknown, and add to the adventure. 
The Landing Zone Bar
The Landing Zone Bar
Expect jaw-dropping views and a tempting drink list, enjoyed over the Big Raging Sister Waterfall. Settle into vintage French chairs, cocktails in hand, complete with ingredients plucked from the camp's backyard, as well as Wild's in-house apothecary-style bitters, and our Master mixologist’s techniques.
Khmer Tonics
Khmer Tonics
Indulge in pampering treatments at the signature Spa, Khmer Tonics. The spa’s two treatment rooms are nestled amid giant natural rocks perched in the forest canopy. Sensibly the design takes its cues from the forest, with plenty of wood and stone. The river takes center stage, have a river-stone foot massage while soaking in a waterfall pool or have therapists visit your tent for a treatment in on your balcony with the river rushing below.
