We stayed two nights in this boutique hotel which is partly a restored colonial residence and partly a convincing modern fake. Our bedroom was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed the end of Empire feel of the place. We were served a delicious breakfast in the English style rose garden. Since we did not feel like walking into town, we had dinner at the hotel both evenings and , although we were the only people in the dining room, the food was more than adequate, freshly cooked and nicely served by friendly staff. We very much enjoyed our stay.

The Amara Mountain Resort itself consists of two buildings, both colonial style and one built as early as 1909. Step back in time when staying at the Amara Mountain Resort. A former British guest house, now an exclusive hotel with just eleven rooms with an open fireplace. It is surrounded by a cottage garden with ancient trees, brightly colored flowers and a bio garden, whose products are served fresh in our restaurant. Enjoy yet another aspect of Myanmar when visiting Kalaw! How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains! (John Muir) ... more less
