Firstly, know that this is not a luxurious, 5 star hotel, but something a little more charming and perhaps a bit rustic. It is a 45 minute ride in a motorized canoe out to the hotel. The deluxe rooms are free-standing huts out over the water. The rooms are large enough for a couple of nights, the beds were comfortable, clean and with very adequate bathrooms. We spent a lot of time out on our private balcony watching the comings and goings of the motorboat traffic on the main canal. Some of the motors can be loud, but it didn't bother us a bit, because these boats are the economic engines of the region. There are ear plugs provided, though we didn't use them. Loved sitting on the balcony as the sun went down, just watching the toing and froing of the boats going about their daily lives. The food in the dining room was good and the staff was friendly and well trained. Only one comment re the dining room. Not many of us eating (which is fine), however, one of the young waitresses would walk round and round and round and whip anything off the table that was finished or wasn't being used. Very, very annoying. One of the great things was being able to climb a tower at the back of the hotel which gave great views of the lake and the floating gardens.

As always, we will try our best to make the rooms comfortable and spacious for all of you. Thank you for also mentioning the cleanliness of our rooms and the bathrooms. Our staff tries their best to provide the best hospitality for all the guests at our hotel. So, they will definitely be happy to hear your words. We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed watching the motorboat traffic on the main canal.

We are very sorry if the boats bothered you during your stay and at the same time thank you for your constant understanding of the Inle lake culture. As for the dining room, we are very sorry for disturbing you while you are enjoying your meal. It seems like they tried to be standing so much that it annoys our guests. We are very sorry to let it happen but we will try to improve that in the future. However, we are very glad that you like our food and noticed the tower that we have where you can see nice views of the lake and the floating gardens. In conclusion we would like to thank you once again for writing a review for us! The Amazing Hotels and Resorts team would like you to invite you once again if you come to Inle again.

This place was a great value for the location. Right on the lake so you will heat boats going by, but they do provide earplugs. The included breakfast is pretty standard for hotels in Myanmar, and we enjoyed it. They also helped us arrange a couple of boat trips (sunset and post-checkout), and they driver they used was a lot of fun! Note that you are not close to town so after dinner, you are pretty much in for the night (which we liked).

The hotel resort is good place to stay, neatly maintained, very generous hospitality, good food and a warm welcome great rooms .They have a large number of well furnished cottages and rooms at various price points. The sound of boat engines which so frequently up and down is the only disturbance but resort provides ear plugs in the room in case you feel noisy. This is great experience to me during vacation. Enjoying the sunset in front of your bungalow directly on the Inle Lake is one of my best memories of this trip to Inle. It is located within Inle Lake, and a 1-minute walk from Nga Phe Kyaung Monastery

Dear francis_martino, It is our pleasure to know that you enjoyed your stay. We would like to thank you for willingly writing a review for us. The pros and cons mentioned in your review will help us with creating better stays for you. We are very delighted that you are happy with our hospitality; our staff tries very hard to provide you the best service and hospitality. Thank you so much for checking out our rooms and for sharing that you loved them. Hope you love the room you stayed in as well. As our hotel is only a 1-minute walk from the Nga Phe Kyaung Monastery, we also hope that you had the chance to explore tourist attractions across the lake. The rooms and bungalows are also placed in ways so that you can enjoy the sunset on the Inle Lake, so to hear that you enjoyed the sunset delights us. Regarding the motorboat, we are sorry if it interferes with your relaxation and total experience. Our hotel is located right on the main canal so traffic is always present with boats moving up and down the canal. Unfortunately, as it is part of our culture, we cannot seem to control it. But as a minor solution, we have provided earplugs to help you with the noises. We hope these earplugs are helpful. In conclusion, the Amazing Hotels and Resorts team would like to invite you to come again to visit more places in the Inle lake. With warmest regards, The management team of Amazing Hotels & Resorts

We stayed 2 nights in Feb 2019 after 3 weeks of work in India and Myanmar. It was the perfect rest at the end of the trip. Po and her staff really looked after us and made sure all our needs were met. You could easily just sit all day on the deck and watch the world go by ... but ... we just left that for sunset and sunrise and used the fact we were in a perfect, central location to explore the lake. We visted the artists and craftspeople, the floating gardens, temples, pagodas, monasteries, the 5 day markets - all by boat - best to negotiate an all day fare and the drivers will take you where you need / want to go.

I stayed at Paramount Inle Resort for four nights in January 2019. I usually stay in budget accommodation so this was a real treat for me. You approach the hotel with a boat across beautiful Inle Lake. As if this is not already breathtaking enough, the property is really beautiful. I had one of the cottages, and felt very much at home. Every evening I sat on the little balcony/veranda and watched a beautiful sunset and watched the boats go by. One night, I watched a full moonset. Magical. Yes, you are likely to get woken up by the boats first thing in the morning. Earplugs are provided, but I didn't find the sound too disturbing, in fact, it made me smile as it is part of the character of the place, part of the Inle soundscape! One morning I woke up early and heard distant chanting from the nearby monastery. Again, this made me smile - absolutely magical. I cannot comment on the superior rooms, but my deluxe cottage on stilts was wonderful - yes, at night in January a bit cold, but there are extra blankets and a heater (which I didn't need). Yes, the wifi is slow, but then I was sitting in the middle of a lake with beautiful views, so I didn't care much about whether I had connectivity or not. The bed was super comfortable, it came with free snacks and fruit, ample drinking water, a hair dryer, mosquito net, tea making facilities... and the above mentioned wonderful veranda/balcony above the water. The staff at Paramount Inle Resort are absolutely amazing and full of smiles. They go above and beyond to ensure you are having a wonderful time. They made me smile all the time, as did the entire Inle Lake experience. It is a magical place and this hotel is right at the heart of it in a superb, stunning location. The reception staff will help you organize any trips you may want to go on. I was generally advised to leave earlier in the morning rather than later to beat the "crowds" and it was great advice. Every time I returned to the hotel, just as when I arrived the first time, I was greeted with smiles and sincere hospitality. When I left, I was waved off by the friendly staff, and I just hope that one day I will get to go back because I had an absolutely magical time.

Dear monnipenny76, Hurrayyyy! Your review is surely one of the best jackpots that we can ask for! A lot of attention, time and sincerity are reflected in this lovely review and we simply cannot thank you enough for this bundle of happiness. As someone who loves travelling, we would like to award ourselves from time to time. Not to even mention of course, we want those occasional self awards to be worthy. We, Paramount Inle Resort family, is on cloud nine to know that it was a real treat and for sharing this spectacular and heartwarming review! Reading your review even helps us imagine the step by step of checking in to our Paramount Inle. What additionally warms our heart is to hear that you didn’t miss watching the sunset every evening. Maybe because you are a pure nature lover and made sure to watch every sunset, a mesmerizing moonset comes to you as a surprise! Moreover, millions of thanks go to you for accepting the sounds of the motor boats as part of the Inle culture. To be honest, regarding the noise from the boats, we are quite confused by how we should come up with a solution that can benefit both our guests and the locals. Now, for a while, thanks to your optimism, we are relieved from this tension! The same goes for the chanting which comes from the nearby monastery. Thank you so much for letting us know that you find part of our culture as purely magical. In addition, thank you again for not forgetting to mention how you loved our deluxe cottages. Regarding the coldness, yes it is colder in January compared to other months. Next time, if you need any assistance, do feel free to reach out to us as we will on standby to assist you. Plus, it is amazing to know that our rooms are well-equipped enough except the poor WiFi connection. To admit, as our resort is positioned in the Inle Lake, it is quite hard to get access to strong WiFi connection. Although we are very very thankful for your understanding, we know that with storng connection provided, your stay would have been more complete. From now on, we will look for opportunities to improve our Wifi! Last but not least, we are happy that you find our staffs always smiling and caring. To be honest, we are one lucky resort to have such great employees and we make sure not to take them for granted. Surely, we will share you compliments with our employees to brighten up their day! Woo! We are totally blown away by how much consideration, kindness and love was put into your review. Thank you so much for going out of your way and for showering us with love. Hoping that your next visit to us is just around the corner and please do call us when it is finally confirmed! We will be so thrilled to see you! With warmest regards, The management team of Amazing Hotels & Resorts
