Having been to Ngwe Saung twice before with my Burmese wife and he family I was keen to try Aureum to compare it to the other hotels we had stayed at previously. I have stayed at both Inle and Bagan Aureum hotels and they were very impressive. We were not disappointed. The staff were great throughout, but I can imagine if I had not been with family fluent in Burmese it could have been more difficult. We stayed in a ocean view bungalow with cot provided for our 1 year old. We had no complaints at all.
The local village is worth a visit. We had lunch there twice and manage to feed 8 adults for $40 (fresh crab and prawns). Hotel food was very good quality but obviously more expensive than venturing out.
A special mention to all this staff. Our 1 year old was struggling with sleep pattern, so would come to restaurant in the evenings. The staff could see he was unsettled at times and would come and pick him up and walk with him. I am sure by the end of the stay he had been cuddled by nearly all the staff. We had not expected this, but was a lovely touch. Top marks.
Prices have gone up every time we visit Burma and the hotels can be expensive, but well worth the 5 hour journey from Yangon.
