If there's a more personable hotel manager in Asia than the lovely Wah Wah then I would be surprised. She looks after her guests with a warm kindness that makes you feel like family, and for her staff nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are good, it doesn't have a swimming pool but there is one nearby that guests... More

We stayed there over a weekend and didn't have a single thing that we can really call a bad experience. Here's a breakdown of our stay: Pros: - Very friendly staff, always eager to help out and always smiling - It's right on the edge of where the pagodas and temples start and is about a 15 minute electric bike...

I stayed here in December 2013 for two nights. The guest houses were very beautiful, with traditional woven bamboo walls. The grounds were even more beautiful, impeccably landscaped with hanging Bougainville on trellis. The staff was very friendly, it is run by an older woman and her nephew I think, an industrious young Burmese man who studied business in the... More

Wa Wa, the hotel manager was super friendly & always cheerful. Her entire staff was excellent in everyway. Surrounding ground was well manicured with a beautiful flower covered pathway that lead to the cottage style rooms. We stayed here for 3 nights & loved it very much. Our room was located at the very back, which was super quiet with... More

This was hands down the best place we stayed anywhere in Myanmar- Don't listen to any of the negative comments here! Yes, it may be a little pricey, but so are all guesthouses in Myanmar. Sure, the internet is sometimes slow, but please show me where it isn't in this country. The staff, particularly Lyn Nyat (the caretaker), truly make... More

I arrived at 430am and no one was in the lobby. The taxi driver yelled and banged on the door for 10 seconds and a lady and young man ran out to help me. I felt SO BAD for waking them up but they were not upset at ALL. Since that morning, my stay had been nothing but a 10/10.... More
