Make a difference with Shinta Mani Angkor


The Shinta Mani Foundation (SMF) seeks to be a leader in responsible tourism. The goal of SMF is to enhance the lives of the individuals in the local communities where we operate – by increasing their human capital and providing them the tools to overcome the constraints of poverty.

Founded by Mr. Sokoun Chanpreda, a Cambodian businessman who returned from overseas to invest in the future of his country, the SMF is guided by his philosophy of Open Doors, Open Hearts. The Foundation operates today in the three core areas of education, healthcare and direct assistance.

Shinta Mani’s community activities began in 2004 with the opening of the Shinta Mani School of Hospitality on the grounds of Shinta Mani Siem Reap, a boutique hotel owned by Mr Sokoun. This innovative program, which received international recognition for its efforts, trained underprivileged Cambodians in aspects of world-class hotel operations on a free of charge basis-providing them the skills to secure employment and to enjoy a brighter future.   Since 2004, more than 229 Khmer students have graduated from the Shinta Mani School of Hospitality and still enjoy employment in the immediate township and local countryside.

Make a Difference

Our ‘Open Doors, Open Hearts’ CSR package enables guests to visit the Foundation and see the work they do first hand and to make a difference with a water well donated under their name.  Guests will also meet some of the graduates of the School during their stay who are employed at the trendy Shinta Mani Angkor – an exquisite Bill Bensley-designed boutique resort comprising 39 rooms, located in the leafy French Quarter of the city between the Royal Gardens and the Old Market area, just footsteps from the river and 15 minutes from the magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Temples of Angkor Wat.

Your experience also includes a full day tour to the Angkor temples complex, a visit to the Green Gecko project with a rice donation to an orphanage, a village visit lead by Shinta Mani Foundation with a donation of a water well to a family, a dinner with show at Bambu Stage Siem Reap, a 60 minutes spa treatment at Shinta Mani Spa and a relaxing lunch at Kroya restaurant during your stay.  It will be a trip to remember and one that makes an on-going difference for years to come.
