we were absolutely gutted to find that our "lakeside garden villa" had absolutely no view of the lake. it had very little view of anything other than some tropical planting.
The hotel website is totally misleading and when it talks of "a sense of intimacy with the natural environment of Inle Lake:" etc, nowhere does it state that 6 of the rooms have no view of the lake. this means you miss the sunset, wildlife, local fishermen etc. we asked to be moved but this did not happen.
We found the food reasonable enough that in 3 nights staying there we did not feel the need to go elsewhere. The pre-ordering system for breakfast is ridiculous and doesn't work, the staff seemingly unable to read or understand the choices. it would be much better to have a buffet.
This is disappointing as the rooms themselves are beautiful and well appointed, but feeling so cheated I could not give this hotel a better review. they need to be more honest on their web site.
