the staff is extremely helpful and friendly but the location of the resort is not desirable. we were there for 3 days in total and there is absolutely nothing to do in the resort except to soak in the pool. the food in the restaurant is horrible and it is the only place we could go for dinner. the 2nd...

Loved our stay at this hotel. It was such a great way to see the lake. We did do one night in town before coming here for 3 nights, but I don't think we would have felt short changed had we skipped that (though it was nice to be able to buy some wine to enjoy on our balcony). We... More

The Shwe Inn Tha Floating Resort was the most expensive hotel we've had on our Myanmar trip and it was the worst stay. The airconditioning did not work and over our stay of 2 nights they were not able to fix it. Also, motorboats pass right in front of the hotel (and our room terrasse) every other minute, starting from... More

Beautiful setting- totally could not beat it. The wooden huts were sweet and well furnished inside, if a little chilly at night. Pool was immaculately clean and staff were kind and attentive. Dinner was average but breakfast was great. Wifi was good and reliable too. Pick a room that faces East so you can watch the sunrise. Breathtaking.

We really enjoyed our stay here - the hotel is comprised of quaint bungalows that are set directly above the lake. It feels a bit dated, and isn't luxurious, but it's charming. The food is uninspiring but well priced - whereas the cocktails are both excellent and cheap (especially at happy hour!) Also had a great experience at the spa.

We researched this location on Trip Advisor before we chose this hotel. We picked this one because it has a pool. It is a truly magical experience to enter a hotel by boat. We were warmly greeted. Our family of 5 had 2 separate bungalows and they were very charming. The view from the rooms and all over this floating... More

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

Not look like 4* hotel Far from land and quality of room is very poor . Not recommended for families with baby . Noise of boats stars from 04:00 till 22:00. If you want quite and elite holiday you need to check alternatives .water supply from the lake ,even you can not brush your teeth

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
