Day 1: Welcome to Cambodia
From the moment you arrive at Siem Reap Airport, you will step off the plane with service at your doorstep. Arrive at your boutique resort, Shinta Mani Shack, which is centrally located in the leafy French Quarter between The Royal gardens and the Old Market Area, just 15 minutes from the Angkor Wat.
Pamper yourself with a spa treatment at Shinta Mani Angkor with a Jamu Cleansing, which combines a mixture of white clay and Cambodian coffee beans from the hill tribes of the mountainous Ratanakiri Province.
Baitong offers all day dining from International comfort food to Khmer street food. Enjoy indoor and outdoor seating in this cool green space.
Day 2: Adventure butlers await
Set along rivers and waterfalls, Bensley has set out to create his most ambitious luxury camp project to date. Custom-designed tents of the Bensley Collection Shinta Mani Wild are perched over the swift moving waters and waterfalls providing a view and experience unlike any other resort in Asia.
The adventure begins the moment you step into a 1960s-era army jeep and head off-road. This is just the beginning! Wait until you enter the camp itself — speeding in via zip line.
The Wild occupies a pristine 865 acres river valley on the southern border of the Cardamom National Forest. From easy walks on riverside trails on the WILD property to full day, hardcore slogs into the Cardamom interior our Bensley Adventure Rangers will happily guide you on the adventure of your choosing.
At The Headquarters, guests will enjoy the freshest seasonal ingredients that Cambodia has to offer, many of them picked by our team in the surrounding forest.
Day 3: Srey Ambel estuary
Traverse the secret estuary backwaters on custom designed luxurious 20 foot pontoon-style expedition boats. Each comes with a fully-equipped bar, daybed, kayaks, toilet, top deck with sun loungers and a Bensley Adventure Butler. Guests can drop anchor wherever they please, whether to explore the narrow estuarine channels by kayak or to enjoy a truly wild alfresco picnic.
Zip-lining to after dinner drinks
Feeling the adventure coursing through veins after a day of exploring? You could try the zip-line to The Landing Zone Bar should walking seem a little too pedestrian.
Day 4: Song Saa private island
Your private island awaits
Take a 45-minute ride in a shared speedboat from Sihanoukville Port to Song Saa, a tropical getaway with a pristine private beach, 24 spacious wooden villas, heavenly spa sanctuaries and a preserved coral reef located in Koh Rong Archipelago, Cambodia.
Spa and yoga
From the night spa under Cambodia's gorgeous night sky to one-on-one yoga, tailor your own journey crafted to your own needs and desires.
Vista Bar and Restaurant indulges your palette with Khmer flavours, fresh ingredients and seafood that is freshly caught by local fishermen.
Day 5: Adventure day
Safari in Koh Ouen and Koh Bong
Explore Koh Ouen and Koh Bong with a guide from the conservation team to learn about local species, habitats, ecosystems and the conservation efforts to protect them.
Grab a snorkel and get to know some of the local fish species: parrotfish, damselfish, sea horses, spotted rays and even sea turtles.
You don’t need a special occasion to dine under a starlit sky or on a pristine patch of powdery sand. Just choose a location in the resort — on the beach by the sea, along the infinity pool, in one of Song Saa’s hidden enclaves — and a dining experience will be arranged unlike any other. Enjoy good food and fine wines, whether you’re dining under clear blue skies or a canopy of stars.
Day 6: New Year’s Eve in Bangkok
High above the city skyline
Wake up to river views, relax by an infinity rooftop pool overlooking the Chao Phraya River and indulge in a delightful dinner at SEEN.
New Year’s Eve Seafood Fiesta
Kiss the year goodbye with bubbles and fresh seafood feast as spectacular fireworks light up the sky over the Chao Phraya River. From Avani+ Riverside’s 11th floor, a variety of premium buffet stations featuring the freshest imported and local produce as the live band plays to celebrate the New Year in style.
