The hotel is very fine. It is well landscaped, the rooms are comfortable and the bars and dining room good.
The welcome at the front gate with towel and drink after every excursion (in the heat) is truly delightful and very refreshing.
The service was excellent. The front gate staff, front office staff, bar and dining staff and even the housekeeping staff were all wonderful. The in-room check in was a bonus.
The guest relations officers, Toe Toe and Ktharikaw, were very friendly and helpful. We had some great conversations and left feeling that they are our friends.
More Burmese food on the dinner menu would have made this hotel perfect in every way.
