We stayed here for 5 days in march 2019. It is a great, calm, green environment to stay. The yard is like a paradise. Staff is truly friendly and breakfast is very nice with fresh ingredients. The rooms are cosy and clean, will all comfort needed, without being to much. It is a nice walk to the center of Kalaw, wich is a great place during day and for a nice dinner in the evening. Excellent place to stay!

The place is beautiful and unique. The houses are made of wood and the price is cheap compared to what we expected. The host recommended us some hikes and he even woke up earlier than usual for making us breakfast.

Good - Breakfast was nice with a variety of local produce. Bad - Came here expecting more based on reviews. Had the bungalow at the edge of property. Can be a little dark at night, would do better with a little more lighthing. Room was very big with high ceiling maybe 30m2 with 5-6m ceiling. Bedding felt damp due to the weather which is understandable. Only had one small tiny floor heather. Sockets were placed in non strategic locations. Heater had a short cable rendering it pretty useless. Taking a shower also became a challenge as it was cold. Stay was quite misearable as we felt cold and damp the whole night. In addition, had some weird animal noises which I think is cat + dog. There are only 4 rooms in Thitaw Ley - 2 Bungalow and 2 in the main building. You might consider Thitaw 2 which is next to the main building.

Really nice accommodation - our rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was really good - there was a great assortment of fruit pancakes, eggs done any way you want etc.. the chef was happy to make what you wanted. Mahindra who runs it is also super friendly and helpful. The location is a nice 5 to 10 mins walk fr the centre in a elevated leafy area. All in all Ireally recommend staying!

My lovely wife and I spent two nights at this bed & breakfast when visiting Kalaw. We booked it largely because of the rave reviews on this esteemed site. But to be honest I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. It was OK at best. Certainly nowhere amazing as some other reviews suggest. We have stayed in nicer - and cheaper - places in each of Yangon, Bagan and Mandalay. Our room was large, clean and decorated to a reasonably good standard. But It smelt damp and musty. Worse still, the bedding was damp, something I have never experienced at any hotel anywhere in the world. There is simply no excuse for this. The shower was hot but the towels were thin and rough. The WiFi was the worst I have encountered in two weeks in Myanmar. It was sometimes slow but more often didn't work at all. The garden was very pleasant. It was nice to sit out on the deck o the early evening. I found the breakfast rather underwhelming in the light of the many rapturous reviews. The fabled banana bread was dry and uninspiring. The regular bread was better and made a pleasant change from the usual awful sliced bread served up elsewhere. The homemade jams are also good. But it was all a bit too western. I would have liked a few more local options.
