We stayed 3 nights with kids aged 3, 5 and 8. The family room was good with plently of room. However, the air con was not working in one of the rooms. A plug in conditioner was eventually provided on Day 2 but it did not get very cool (we did get the contents of the mini-bar free in compensation).... More

The SIT is one of several "floating" resorts. Like the other Inle hotels the complex is built on stilts over the lake. The rooms are undergoing renovation so request a newer unit. The rooms are large, with views over the water. The baths tend to be problematic for some but it's part of the "rustic" experience. The service is good,... More

Very disappointed, Hotel is over 1hr by boat from the jetty and they do not provide any complimentary transportation. So expect to pay at least 15000kyat every time you want to go one way. The hotel is right on a major boat transport water way so from 6am to 7pm every 5-10seconds a very loud and smelly long boat drives... More

So, I have a weakness for water taxis ever since I visited Venice so many years ago. The boat trip from Nyaung Shwe to Shwe Inn Tha was a 45 minute excursion across the length of Inle Lake, culminating with the waterway entrance to the hotel. The location was great for boat tours as most sights are nearby, with Indein... More

I was very disappointed with this hotel, maybe I had high expectation since the photos online looked quite nice. I regretting booking this place and actually tried to ask if we could cancel the 2nd night. My boyfriend got really sick when we arrived and had to stay in the room all day, he could barely sleep as the boats... More

One of the older Hotels on Inle lake good position but could do with smartening up. An ideal base for touring the lake. We were part of a small mature well behaved group, here for 3 nights You will need a good jumper, fleece, waterproof as the mornings are really cold. There is some boat noise early in the morning,...

I'm not positive this hotel was really floating (it looks like it may be built on stilts), but it is beautiful and it was quite exciting to stay in the middle of the lake. The only transportation is by boat, but there's lots to see on any boat ride. Our bungalow was roomy and comfortable and all meals at the... More

The whole hotel is on stilts and there is no dry land here !! Quite a long boat ride but worth the trip. Large bungalow with outside shower, comfortable bed, good hot water supply and pleasant staff. Good outside balcony to sit and relax. The only drawback was that there seemed to be lots of power failures during the night... More
