We were very surprised and pleased when we arrived at this resort: a glorious location, beautifully maintained grounds, warm welcome ( traditional musical welcome on arrival and Chinese tea in Reception). Impressive Reception building and even more impressive dining room, with big balconies overlooking the lake, which, itself, is stunning.

We had rooms in Block C, which I can recommend: they were big, nicely furnished and had enormous bathrooms...plus glorious lake views from the verandah. No AC, but then this is quite a cool area...in fact, the nights were cold in mid-January...but the days were nicely warm.

The rooms over the water also look lovely, but the best rooms must be the little villas...Prince, Princess 1 and 2, which, rather than being right down on stilts on the water, are up a bit and look out over the whole lake.

It is true that it is a bit isolated, as the main town is on the other side of the lake...and that does mean that you pretty well have to use their restaurant, which works out at $10 or $15 a person for dinner. The food was fine and the inclusive breakfast was also quite pleasant with an egg station.

We hired a boat for the day ( about 6 hours in total for about 25, 000 K or $30 but that's OK for 4 passengers.) and toured the lake to see various sites, including some lovely Shan temples: a fantastic and unique day on the water which I highly recommend.

If you are in need of a few quiet days just to laze around and soak up the silence and the scenery, then this place is ideal!

Room Tip: A taxi from Heho Airport is quite expensive...about 30,000 K each way as it is an hour's drive. If 3 or 4 people, it's Ok. If fewer, try to find someone getting off that same flight and going the same place: plan ahead! If you take the boat trip, booked through Reception, include, for another $10, the additional side trip up the river from the lake to a wonderful old Shan temple: well worth it!

My husband and I (mid 60's) stayed 4 nights at this hotel in mid-November. We had a room on land overlooking the boat landing. It was large and very nicely decorated with a big balcony. We enjoyed the restaurant where we could order food at any time during the day when we returned from a boat ride on the lake. A little warning: Inle Lake is high in altitude and it is cold at night and early morning. The rooms are not heated and my husband and i got cold. We took a hotel boat to go to town to get some medicine and we were ok. We used the same hotel boat for 3 days of sightseeing around the lake and the boatman was very pleasant. All in all a great location, good food and some decent local wine.

Our stay at the Hu Pin Resort was a mixed bag at best. The resort itself, while isolated, is quite neat in a 1940's way, with a grand lodge style building where meals are served, and several rooms are located on the waters edge of Inle Lake. Unfortunately, we were given a cottage in a barracks style building behind the main resort. Our room had only wood panel walls separating our room from those on either side, with all noise from the adjacent rooms being transferred through the walls. Fortunately, the adjacent occupants were family. The spartan bathrooms were like hospital laboratories with white tile in abundance with towels proclaiming Koala Love with care bear type figures embroidered onto them. Three twin beds were stacked side by side to accommodate us and our adult daughter. We were wakened at least two times by rats fighting in the walls above our beds and as daylight broke on the second day of our stay at the Hu Pin, we could see the tail of one of these residents wagging happily above our room at the ceiling level. Since we do a fair amount of outdoor camping it did not bother us too much, however, there have to be better options around the Inle Lake. Maybe the lake front rooms are nice, however, we will not be returning to find out. The staff was not very knowledgeable and when I asked to put our passports into a safe, they cleared office supplies out of a wooden drawer into which they put our passports, then they gave me the key. The food was o.k., a marginal buffet breakfast and a mixed Asian dinner menu which was not bad. My best words of advice: Caveat Emptor.

Room Tip: Do not stay in the barracks style buildings at the rear of the resort.

The location is quiet, stunningly beautiful, but with only one alternative (Chinese) restaurant nearby (1km walk). This place is ideal as a peaceful retreat, but we felt trapped by the isolation, very limited choice for dining and the hiked up prices for food, drink and transport (boats/taxis). We booked in advance ($40/night) and were disappointed by the rather jaded room.
We re-located on day two to their sister hotel, Hupin Hotel in nearby Nyaung Shwe, in the heart of the town. Staff were superb at arranging the transfer by boat / pick-up.
