First which comes to my mind is „terrible noise” because the resort is located on the lake near the lake “highway” full of motor boats starting from the morning till the night. We visited the place in January and stayed 2 nights. The temperature outside was about 12 Celsius degrees – and inside the bungalow – the same. The air... More

So, undeniably the place is gorgeous and despite food reviews, we thought the breakfast buffet was comprehensive and fine (omelet/fried scrambled egg bar included) and dinner was good as well...almost the only option as you must take a boat anywhere and boats are reticent to drive after dark. And this is where the problems start. One of the front desk... More

The resort has seen slightly better days and the food is unmemorable. Staff are willing and the pool area is nice. As noted, access is only by boat and hiring one for the morning or afternoon to sightsee is not too expensive even if, like I was, you are travelling solo. However, it did mean that in the evenings I... More

A lovely resort of around 30 wooden stilt bungalows sitting on Inle Lake close to a small village and pagoda. You'll need to take longboat taxis to go anywhere as you do at all the Inlay resorts, we found this fun and, at night time wonderful. There's a decent in-house restaurant for food all day and a lovely poolside bar... More

The hotel is literally marooned at the edge of the lake. The only way in and out is by boat. This gives it a certain air of Fantasy Island which adds to the magic of just being on Lake Inle. We were greeted by smiling helpful staff with a welcome drink and taken to our room. All the rooms are... More

Noisy noisy noisy! Can't comment on anything past the overriding noise! The huts look idyllic, but Western tourists are all put on the East side of the resort, with the quieter Western huts reserved for the large Chinese tour parties that come at least twice a week. The Eastern huts run parallel with the main route for motorboats to travel... More

I stayed here with my other half for a few days after a hike to the lake from Kalaw. Overall we really liked our stay. Location: We had to get a boat here after finishing our hike. It only took about 20 minutes. The resort itself is situated in the southern part of the lake, and is close to a... More

The beauty of this hotel, the perfect setting of the spacious rooms on the water with their lovely balconies are all well described in earlier reviews and were the reason for our choice. However, the real surprise we had at this place was the amazing approach of both the staff and the owner. As we arrived we had a misunderstanding... More
