The eagerly awaited Bill Bensley glamping resort, Bensley Collection – Shinta Mani Wild, which is set deep within the wilderness of Cambodia’s South Cardamom National Park, will open on 1 November 2018.

The resort will offer 14 one-bedroom luxury tents – all sized at 100sq m (1,076sq ft) – and one two-bedroom luxury tent – sized at 140sqm (1,507sq ft).

The tents have been designed to evoke Bensley’s vision of what it would have been like to be “on a luxury safari in the jungles of Cambodia with Jackie Onassis (the wife of 35th US President John F. Kennedy) and King Sihanouk (the former ruler of Cambodia) in 1967”.

The resort will run a number of conservation and community outreach programmes, including the provision of long-term employment opportunities for local inhabitants. Beyond this, it will nurture its natural environment through partnerships with conservation organisations including Wildlife Alliance, the Royal University of Phnom Penh and the Cambodian Government.

For guests, highlights include 380m zip line over a river and waterfalls alongside a custom Bensley-designed expedition boat – fully equipped complete with kayaks – for exploration of South East Asia’s last wild estuarine ecosystem.

Other offerings include a restaurant – named the Waterfall Restaurant; a bar – named the Landing Zone Bar; and a spa – named Boulder Spa.
