“Relaxing stay - Delicious cuisine and fine Myanmar wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

We stayed here only one night to visit the 8000 Buddha cave. The room was very nice and clean.
Kind staff and the restaurant was excellent. We ate vegetable curry and potato curry with
a very good Myanmar rosé wine.

We've been staying there during a round-trip through Myanmar to visit the Pindaya caves. Very nice - all bungalow - hotel. The bungalows are very spacious with an open fireplace - which might be actually needed in the winter season as it can become quite chilly there (Pindaya is in the highland) - a large bathroom and all wooden interiour with comfortable beds. We had a "small" one - which is already very spacious. Very nice breakfast. Highly recommend also the restaurant for dinner which serves excellent traditional Myanmar and Asian food at reasonable prices. Very friendly staff. All in all very nice hotel in one of the best "off-track" villages in Myanmar - basically no tourism when the day trippers for the Pindaya caves are gone - walk around the village lake in the evening and you will find the local population bathing and cleaning stuff and just normal, daily life.

Cute property with stone-type cottages or bungalows, a 10 minute drive from the Pindaya cave. We stayed in a small stone cottage that was really well thought out and well-maintained. The property is modest, but was a real treat, and run like a 4-star property. Light switches in all the right places, beautiful flower arrangement, clean bed, fluffy towels, nice smelling shampoo in cute ceramic containers (even BF commented on how nice it smelled), responsive and friendly staff. Shower was a bit low for tall foreigners, but wasn't an issue to me given all the other positives and it was very clean. There are screens on the windows so that you can open out the shutters and get cross ventilation and fresh air. It was about 75/80 degrees outside, but the bungalow still felt cool despite the lack of AC due to the design and cross ventilation. The gardens are lovely as is the small guinea pig house near the car parking. The restaurant is lovely too and although the inn caters to foreigners, it accepts kyats instead of dollars. It was a little pricey, but the food was great. The only downside for us was breakfast, which was a little skimpy and they should improve on that. We wished we had stayed an extra night to do some hiking in the area and mingle with the locals. Also, another restaurant, Green Tea, on the lake about 5 minutes from the hotel (just across the lake behind the houses across the street) was also very good.

Room Tip: The stone cottages are great. They also have some traditional bamboo cottages, but we didn't ge...

36 bungalows of two types. Mine was clean, comfortable and spacious with a superkingsize bed. No aircon but rooms (finished entirely in woven bamboo) extend to full height, about 20 feet, so the heat is not oppressive even in the hot season.

Food excellent as was staff attitude and service. Although I eat Asian in Asia they did a great Western breakfast for those who wanted it. Not exactly the full English but fresh warmed French bread etc. Not found in the big hotels so they did well.

Watch out for mosquitos as I said. Although very close to a lake neither nets nor coils are provided. I always carry both but coils are my choice.

We stopped for a brief stay to this hotel which is close to the Pindaya caves (about 10 minutes drive). The rooms are of average quality, basically consisting of small houses of two rooms each- beds were reasonably comfortable. We had dinner there, which was pretty good- including some of the local wines, decent cocktails and a very delicious pork curry. Our kids were well satisfied with spaghetti. Breakfast was a la carte, and somewhat limited in choice but we ate ok. That said, we had a good night in basic accommodation.

What a great little hotel. The staff are so lovely and the whole place is so relaxed. Its a very chilled place with not much to do. Rooms are small wooden bungalows with brick built bathrooms attached, beds were comfortable and you get an electric blanket, my one even worked, the other one didn't,,, This is not a 4/5 str as we know it no Marble or Glass here but ut was a charming little place with lovely , helpful and kind staff. Two of our group went for a massage arranged by the Hotel which was at a local convent and supervised by a buddist nun,
The main reason to visit Pindaya is the caves, the hotel is close by and the caves are well worth a visit

Room Tip: Be nice to the receptionist.

We found this hotel to be very simple, and basic. The service staff were just so wonderful! One of the two electric blankets on our beds did not work. And, you could hear whatever was going on in the room that was attached to yours. There was a large tour group that stayed there while we were there. The spa ( massage) was WONDERFUL, and reasonable. We had dinner at the restaurant and found it quite good, and also reasonable. While they offer free WIFI in the reception area, it was virtually impossible to get online. However, if you are going to the caves, I strongly recommend that you spend the night in the area. It is a VERY long ride from Inle to the caves ( 2 1/2 - 3 hours, one way).
