Our expectations were high: the boat ride in was chilly but exhilarating and we were greeted by the sound of Burmese musicians. But things went rapidly downhill for the rest of our stay.
While the hotel-on-stilts concept is beautiful and very in keeping with the Inle area, the hotel's execution was terrible. Our rooms stank of shellac, were dark and freezing cold. The bathrooms had crumbling tiles, exposed wires, toilets and sinks that did not work and the large glass windows didn't open so we couldn't get any cross ventilation. There was garbage and greasy goo floating in the water that we were looking out on from our back deck. The restaurant makes you feel like you're part of a cheap package tour: fluorescent lit, overly bright cafeteria with a limited menu.
While the concierge was incredibly kind and tried to be helpful, there was no way he could make up for the inadequacies of the property. And even though he was very nice, the hotel refused to reimburse us after we told them we needed to leave early because the fumes were making us & our kids sick. Overall, a place best avoided.
