We used this hotel as our base in Inle and were very happy with it. Staff super friendly, breakfast reasonable for Westerners considering some of the other places we visited. Not sure if there's been a change in management as we ended up eating her every night and found the food to be good overall. The hotel does seem to... More

Inlay Lake is not Lake Como and one has to adjust to the Myanmar context. This remote location does present some challenges for management and they are doing a great job with their local people, The cabins are generously sized with a great out door shower supplementing a standard bathroom. Of an evening we enjoyed sitting on our private balcony... More

The Hotel is raised on stilts as is the rest of the lake, charming wooden accommodation awaits with good sized rooms , clean comfortable beds outside showers if required and usual... More

This is a "floating hotel". IT has huge character as a result and of course is made entirely of wood. Given that you are floating in the middle of the lake this feels more alike a "Safari lodge" than a hotel and your expectations should be adjusted accordingly. That said, the rooms were spacious and comfortable, and the mosquito nets... More

First impressions: this place looked lovely and quite impressive when you arrived in your boat. The staff gave us a very warm and genuine welcome which felt much warmer than those received in the cities we'd been through. The warm welcome continued throughout our visit. Second impressions: air con did not work we were given two fans but still did... More

Stayed here as a family of four (with another family of four) for 4 nights. The location was fantastic - right in the middle of all the villages and their numerous attractions. The rooms were spacious and had everything required. The pool was good after a hot day of sightseeing. We ate every breakfast and dinner at the resort and... More

The location of the hotel is great! Right in close proximity to the attractions on Inle lake. So the escape to the touristic attractions is very close. At days of the floating market in a close proximity there is noise from boats starting too early in the morning. The pool is a real treat, especially when there are afternoon power... More

Really enjoyed our Junior suite - which was very spacious and clean. We had meals served to our villa - very fast. Prices for food and spa were surprisingly low. Very nice staff arranged our local boat trip.
