This place is on the shore of Lake Inle so you can enter both by bus and by boat. The boat is the most charming way to arrive. The resort is quite big. There are a few large building for the common things like reception and restaurant, but the rooms are all in small separate villas. This is very nice as they are placed on wooden bridges around the common buildings. There are some really prette views here and a nice garden where they grow some of the vegetables they serve. There is also a large more hotel like building on shore with a large swimming pool.
We were more than satisfied with our stay and Serenity. Staff is great, room was spacious and pretty, breakfast was very good. Wonderful view from the lake. It is possible to book a boat trip on the lake theought hotel. Location is very peaceful, however far away from all the happening in the nearby town Nyangshwe. Taxi to hotel from Heho airport is quite pricy (45000 kyat).
The hotel is well located - approximately in the middle of the long axis of the lake. It is surrounded by a field of lotuses - it was a pity that it was not a season. The hotel is well planned, the design of the houses is not bad. Now about the sad. A chef cannot cook anything dietary. And it is worth mentioning a couple of hotel residents. Geckos - it's very nice they catch midges. Other guests are rats, leaving their marks everywhere and staging noisy battles at night. Hotel staff know this and shrug their hands smiling.
This hotel is seriously passed its sell by date and my advice would be not to have to much faith in the pictures on-line. The water is clogged with water-lilies which become a mosquito paradise at sunset. Everywhere there is evidence of peeling paint , cracked walk boards , and a worn down building. The staff are great and very helpful but unfortunately you are not there for good relationships but good accommodation - which is not what you are going to get. In the rooms we could see the water through the floor boards. If you have more time. Keep looking for another place to book for your stay at Lake Inhle
The room initially looked great but it soon became apparent that it was in need of some updating. They were clean and comfortable with a lovely balcony overlooking the lake to sit out on - the seats themselves were uncomfortable and falling to pieces in places. Wifi was none existent in the room and we had to sit in the reception if we needed to do anything urgent. The dining room was very big and could accommodate all the guests; the food was basic; breakfast had a reasonable choice. The pool area was good, although we were lucky to get a lounger, there wasn't many; towels were not readily available and we had to ask at reception for them (one day we had to ask twice). This could definitely be managed better and more loungers are needed. Staff were helpful, especially the lady at the reception (I think her name was Mu Mu?) who helped with following up our onward transport from another agency when it didn't turn up. Overall a very pleasant stay.…
