World Travel Magazine - - Just In - LAURA EL­LIOTT

Afeast for the eyes, Bill Bens­ley’s lat­est stun­ner basks in tran­quil­lity fea­tur­ing indoor pools and rooftop liv­ing rooms with 10 new lux­ury twolevel vil­las close to Angkor Wat - the largest re­li­gious mon­u­ment in the world and a UNESCO World Her­itage Site. The Bens­ley Col­lec­tion ‘es­capism’ aes­thetic in­vites guests to lose them­selves in high-walled façades and mon­u­men­tal carv­ings with se­cret en­trances, unique ar­rival cer­e­monies, and to­tal pri­vacy. The 156-square-me­tre vil­las fea­ture floor-to-ceil­ing bath­room win­dows with views of your ex­otic se­cluded gar­den. Six vil­las can be com­bined into three vil­las to ac­com­mo­date larger par­ties. The ul­ti­mate ex­trav­a­gance in­cludes ‘Bens­ley But­lers’ - elite hos­pi­tal­ity pro­fes­sion­als who take care of your ev­ery de­sire from ar­rang­ing sleep-un­der-the-stars evenings to the per­fect itin­er­ary for trekking lo­cal tem­ples and dis­cov­er­ing an­cient mys­ter­ies.

Af­ter your ad­ven­tures, soft light­ing and Cam­bo­dian art wel­come you home to a so­phis­ti­cated black-and-white-themed in­te­rior with dra­matic or­ange ac­cents. As serene scents in­fuse the air you fall asleep on the im­pos­si­bly com­fort­able bed en­joy­ing epic art­work on the ceil­ing that seems like a relic from the Kh­mer Em­pire. Shinta Mani Ho­tels will launch its first highly an­tic­i­pated flag­ship Bens­ley Col­lec­tion prop­erty in the cul­tural heart of the his­toric town of Siem Reap in mid-de­cem­ber 2017.
