Lovely big bungalow in a romantic hotel

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Mar 2, 2020
We had one of the bungalows which are so prettily situated around the lake with fairy lights on the walkways at night. The bungalow consisted of an entrance lobby, lounge area, bedroom with a large kingsize bed, bathroom and a large veranda overlooking the lake. It was very comfortable with a range of eco friendly toiletries. There was an inroom safe which is always useful and robes.
We went for a swim in the beautifully situated and very unusual floating pool. It was a really odd sensation to put your feet on the bottom of the pool and for it to give rather than be firm.
Breakfast was a mixed Shan and western affair served to your table which was very pleasant and made a change from the buffet breakfasts in most hotels.
The hotel is situated at the end of the main street in the village next to the canal which the boats go down to Inlay Lake. It's an easy walk to anywhere in the town and there is a good choice of restaurants mainly along but also just off the main street.
I'd definitely stay here again.

    An amazing night at Viewpoint. We have been welcomed with huge smiles, in a unique place. The hotel is located directly on the water, giving an outbreathing sunset. We slept in a small house, very comfortable bed. Delightful breakfast with, again, a perfect and listener staff to serve. Thanks a lot to Viewpoint team!

    After a full day of travelling, that started at 8 in the morning from Bagan we found ourselves in the town of Nyaung Shwe – The Gateway to Inle Lake at 5 in the evening.We were soon picked up and ferried to ViewPoint Eco Lodge, which was going to be our home for the next two days, during our Epic 7 Day Myanmar Road Trip.

    The very fact that we were welcomed with a nice refreshing drink, a warm scented towel, to freshen up our faces, followed by a glass of chilled white wine, gave us a glimpse that, it’s going to be a delight to be  spending the first few nights of 2020, in the lap of luxury, and being pampered by the hospitable staff here.

    As we were escorted to our room, we passed by the bar, the SPA, and soon reached a fork, which is when we realized that all the 21 rooms at ViewPoint Eco Lodge are Water Villas, built on stilts in a private lagoon, like you find in the Maldives,  tucked in between streets on all the 4 sides.

    Only eco friendly and sustainable products have been used in the construction of the entire complex at ViewPoint Eco Lodge, and following sustainable practices on a day to day basis, is something which is the norm here. And guess what, there was a Swimming Pool, and that too a floating one at ViewPoint Eco Lodge. 

    ViewPoint Eco Lodge, is undoubtedly one of the best places, where you can experience Luxurious Travel in a Sustainable way. No wonder ViewPoint Eco Lodge has won the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2016 for Luxury Lodge and has also been awarded the ASEAN Green Hotel Standard.

    You can reach the town of Nyaung Shwe from either Yangon or Bagan by taking an overnight VIP semi sleeper bus.

    OR you can choose to Fly in !

    The nearest Airport is Heho airport and is a 40 minute drive from ViewPoint Eco Lodge.

    Without a doubt, a stay at the ViewPoint Eco Lodge in Nyaung Shwe in Myanmar is highly recommended, if you are looking for some really unique and memorable experiences.

    My stepmom and I had a wonderful stay at this artfully decorated hotel over NYE. Great service and excellent meals in the restaurant. We enjoyed a fancy NYE dinner with do-it-yourself skewers at a very reasonable price. I enjoyed the Shan appetizers and yummy desserts. Rooms were very comfortable - comfy beds, hot shower. I liked how their bathroom display highlighted local beauty traditions. I tried the spa and had a quality massage, my only critique is that they don't play music and there was a very loud guest right outside my massage room. Would definitely stay here again!
