This hotel is stunning. The rooms are really big with ours having a large double and a single bed, with plenty of room besides. The open closet afforded ample storage space and the shower room was quirky and spacious. The staff were always well presented and smiling. The manager and/or his assistant came around every morning at breakfast checking that... More

Stayed again in a beachfront apartment with a terrace for 10 days which just sped by. Great apartment with several innovations since we last visited. Beautifully landscaped exotic gardens that are not overplanted [ like the other high end hotel on the bay] so, masses of light. Such genuinely friendly, relaxed staff who couldn't do enough to please - room... More

This was a property that tries very hard. I stayed in the "cheap rooms" which were part of the main building (but only a 30 second walk to the beach) The room was spacious and clean and had almost everything you might want. A couple complaints: The floorboards creaked which meant I could hear my neighbours walking around upstairs and... More

Very happy to recommend this hotel. Excellent location right on a beautiful beach. Plenty of restaurants all within 10 minutes walk. The well equipped rooms are of a good size with large bathrooms. I've had better breakfasts but they were certainly ok (could be improved with a variation in the juices on offer - we stayed 10 days and the... More

The Bayview was a first class experience without being at all pretentious! Great location, the best breakfasts, wonderful rooms, and the nicest most attentive staff! The beach is beautiful and there are lots of local beachside restaurants a short walk away. By far our nicest stay in Myanmar!

Beachview for us. Green garden for all. Practical rooms. Clean inside and outside. The sand around the sunchairs on the beach was filterred each morning. Own terrace for all. Pool was not used as the water in the sea was so nice. Eat at beach restaurants.

Breakfast is served every day by the pool and is hearty to say the least, mixing both European and Asian influences (loved their coconut rice, a delight really!). A massive BBQ is organised once a week on the beach, sea food mostly but meat eater aren't forgotten (all that for less than USD20). They lit 2 massive fires that night... More

Spent 2 weeks in Myanmar and after a hectic week travelling it was an absolute delight to spend 6 nights at the Bayview. We wanted for nothing during our stay, staff were friendly and helpful nothing was too much for them including loaning us a set of golf clubs when we wanted to play golf.
