A HOME FOR HISTORY.


A STORY OF INSPIRATION The golden grains of rice on its husks enriched by the rich and historic soil of a kingdom bequeathed with nature’s bounty for more than a thousand years... The colours of grey sandstone that have been pillars of a nation’s culture and heritage in the heart of its temples that seem to encapsulate faith and eternity... The symbolism of white - colour which defines long-yearned peace and the purity of a woman’s love and a mother’s devotion... The echoes of circles that embody the footprint of Buddha and the symbol of divinity and absolute infinity... Colours, shades and shapes that captured the story of our journeys, our aspirations, our ideals, our inspiration, our home...


MANE BOUTIQUE HOTEL & SPA is an 18-room property inspired by our founder, Mane (pronounced as ManĂŠ) - a Cambodian mother of four who takes care of her family based on Khmer custom and culture, and who started the hotel as a legacy to her children. In perfect representation, the hotel in itself is designed according to the custom of a mother caring for guests as she would for her children and family, as well as a legacy of generations that have shaped the history of Cambodia as a nation. Antiques, artworks and personal collections of the family from different decades adorn the hotel and provide a window into beautiful bygone eras while seamlessly merged with modern amenities. Built around three unique contemporary Khmer villas each with different styles, the hotel is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood in Siem Reap but minutes away from the heart of town, the hotel is also a mere 15-minute ride by car or tuktuk from Angkor Wat and the archeological park. As our logo represents, derived from the design of the footprint of the Buddha and representative of the circular voyage of faith; may you too find meaning and bliss in all your journeys in time...


THE GALLERY An airy and informal lounge where we welcome our guests, The Gallery also houses changing and permanent exhibitions of art, antiques and local traditional handicrafts as well as items which guests can purchase and bring home. Our Guest Experience Curators are on hand 24 hours a day to take care of guests’ needs and queries.


CELADON RESTAURANT Inspired by an ancient form of glaze practiced in Cambodian and Asian ceramics, Celadon Restaurant is rooted in both traditional and international flavors. True to its name, our ceramics are all customized for the hotel by Lo Yu Yu, a master ceramic artist who makes pieces from an ancient Angkorian kiln using celadon glaze - serving as symbolic vessels to encapsulate the distinct fine local and global cuisine we serve. Exhibited in the restaurant are permanent collections of Khmer pottery and ceramics from the past decades and centuries, a fine showcase of Cambodia's heritage told through the stories of unique earthenware, from terracotta to celadon glazed pieces. Full complimentary breakfast for guests is served here with a daily rotating menu. Lunch and dinner are also changing on a daily basis based on fresh market finds and feature classic Khmer dishes from Mane and her family, with some recipes handed down from generations. Healthy dining is our core with fresh and organic ingredients forming the heart of every meal. Guests may enjoy the flavors of Celadon in the restaurant or outdoors, near the garden or the pool area. Private in-room dining can also be arranged.


AFTERNOON TEA A tradition exclusive to the hotel, our daily afternoon tea is a complimentary treat to guests after a day’s worth of exploration to the temples and the sights around the historic fringes of Siem Reap. Local and old world teas are served alongside traditional Cambodian treats - from palm sugar dumplings to deep fried banana fritters and cakes at the aptly named Tea Garden.


THE OUTDOORS The Swimming Pool is the main outdoor hub in the hotel. The twelve meter salt water pool is wrapped by a teak wooden deck and spills into a sandstone edge. Sun beds and loungers are found around the deck where guests can bathe in the warm, tropical sun. Traditional Khmer parasols are in place for those who want to stay on the shade. A Juice Bar just a few steps from the deck is on hand to provide cool quenchers, fresh fruit juices, smoothies, cocktails and spirits prepared on the spot as well as light snacks from the kitchen nearby. Lunch and dinner can also be arranged on the al fresco setting of the pool.


CIRCLE SPA Recreating the essence of the image in our logo, the Circle Spa is born from the c o n c e p t o f c i rc u l a r j o u r n e y s t o enlightenment and nirvana in the Buddhist faith. The spa specializes in traditional Khmer and Asian massage techniques as well as treatments for blissful pampering. One spa room for couples has an attached relaxation area with private steam bath, shower, and private jacuzzi while two single treatment rooms are available with a range of massage and beauty treatments using Cambodian techniques for the body and mind to refresh and unwind from after a day of temple touring or jet lag. A large airconditioned room overlooking the pool is the prime spot for foot therapies and nail treatments.


This therapy room is for foot massage treatments as well as nailcare.


An intimate yet profound haven for relaxation and wellness, the Circle Spa embodies our search for bliss.


Two connecting massage rooms ideal for couples doing oil body treatments also have their own jacuzzi tub and steam room.
