Reminiscing Siem Reap: Shinta Mani & Park Hyatt

Untitled

February 1, 2014 | Siem Reap, day three | Part one

Truly free and easy. Di, Yani, and I followed Rai to two hotels for their respective interiors, designed by the firm she has been affiliated to. Oh, the four of us loved the new perspectives formed from both visits.


The first visit: Shinta Mani Resort. Chic and classic. Various elements of art added exuberance to the whole concept. Rai casually talked about interior design as Di, Yani, and I admired each detail of the place.

One Cambodian aspect we also experienced there was the people's warmth. Even after explaining that the four of us were neither media representatives nor guests, we were cordially welcomed by the personnel. Thank you ❤


Next: Park Hyatt. Luxurious yet cosy. Uniqueness at every corner, too. Our favourite was the preserved 100-year old banyan tree at the center of the courtyard. I personally relished the artistic values.

Again, Di, Rai, Yani, and I were asked by a personnel whether we represented any media. Must be my DSLR camera and our aura ;D. To our surprise, the personnel offered a brief personal tour around the hotel. Your amiability was a delight, Mr. Tang.

Relaxed, we cancelled our stay at Frangipani Villa Hotel II and booked a two-bedroom pool suite at Park Hyatt lounged at the terrace of The Dining Room. We talked, we laughed, and we chillaxed. All over Khmer coffee, tropical fruit juices, and nuts.

One fine day, we will experience more of you, Park Hyatt. As in-house guests 😉. More of Siem Reap later.
