We stayed here as we were travelling with young children and did not want to stay out in deep water. We made the right decision in choosing this place. The beautiful resort is located on the canal in the town on Nyaungshwe with the 'jetty' right next door.
From check-in (welcome drink) to check-out it was a great experience overall. The over water villas were beautiful and spacious. Eventhough there were 5 of us in the villa we didn't trip over each other and had enough space to do our own things. They prepared beautiful single beds for our boys with their own little mosquito nets in the living room, which delighted them to no ends and provided them with a "tent entertainment" for hours. The children enjoyed feeding the ducks from the boardwalk or from our balcony.
Breakfast was good with a variety but more western fare than traditional. We thoroughly enjoyed the different types of bread presented in a basket to us at breakfast. The restaurant was open on all sides and provided a lovely ambiance and a taste as to how the Shan "sawbuahs" used to enjoy their palaces. Dinner at the restaurant was also good.
The little natural-traditional bathroom amenities were a winner as well as the fresh fruits.
Overall, the staff were wonderful, the place was well kept and it did not dissapoint. Great for families with young children as eventhough the villas are on water, it felt safer than being out in open lake. The location is also close to Nyaungshwe town centre, which is a 10 mins walk away. The jetty being located right next to the resort is also convenient after a tired day out on the boat on Inlay Lake.
