“Staying on the lake is irresistible, a must do at Inle”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

We are a family of four who surrounded by such beautiful water missed our Portuguese Water Dog that we left behind so much while at Inle. The resort on the lake is beautiful the front or lake facing rooms face the west and make for a glorious sunset. The side rooms are not bad and the garden view rooms are inner rooms that face a central garden. Try to get a lake facing room - we were not so lucky and good side rooms.

The staff at the Paramount Inle were the factor that made the difference. The resort is special, lying delicately on the lake the small compact rooms with a little balcony. The food at the restaurant is excellent except that it can be very busy, however this is again where the restaurant manager and the crew set things right with their hardwork and ever willing attitude.

There is a lovely lookout point at is great for a drink and a chat or to simply admire the scenic beauty and perhaps get some nice pictures. The resort is clean and tidy and depending on whether you may be either on the boat all day or in the resort most of the time you should make sure you get a good view for the day.

Room Tip: Lake view not Side View Small rooms so pack right

We have just returned from Myanmar, we stayed at the Resort in one of the cottages. Words just don't do justice to this charming place. The staff are amazing, always ready to help with a smile.
Yes it is noisy we knew this before we went, the view and atmosphere make up for the noise. we had been advised on Trip Advisor to take warm clothes, socks, jumper etc. Wrong we did not need any of these. Perhaps a light wind type jacket for early morning boat trips. We just loved it. We didn't want to leave. We will go back, it is unique and wonderful. Food delicious, massage to die for, and boat trips everywhere. Thank you Paramount Inle you made our trip a very memorable one.

Glorious sunsets and sunrises right in the middle of the Inle lake. Super friendly staff with excellent food for Inle lake. Try the Myanmar breakfast (Shan noodles). Be aware of continuous boat traffic during the day light hours. At times, the waves can rock the cottages slightly. WiFi only in the reception area.

Travelling through Myanmar for 2 weeks and just spent 3 nights at Paramount Inle Resort. We found the resort via TripAdvisor and would definitely recommend it to friends. The resort is great value for money - most other resorts cost USD 100+/night. It's about a 40 minute boat ride from the main town at the North of Inle Lake but ideal location to explore the lake further by boat. The staff attention and kindness made it all very worth while.

We stayed in Paramount Inle for 4 nights and had rented the appartments with an excellent lake view.
The first night was very noisy with boats passing by very early in the morning, but this was due to the fact that the market was held in the village right beside. Ear plugs are advisable, but the following nights were a lot quieter.
Staff were very very friendly and food in the restaurant was great and not expensive.
I could have stayed on the lake even longer.
I can also recommend our boat driver Touris who was very friendly and patient.

If we are to promote responsible travel in a country like Myanmar, I think Paramount Inle Lake falls into the category where we can say that we help promote local private enterprise and at the same time taste a little bit of luxury and comfort. It has cottages built on stilts facing the busy stretch of the lake and the other side facing quiet garden and mountain. In contest between the two, the lake view wins!

The dining room doesn't reflect the organic feel of the resort but the viewing tower including the service is just incredible. Everyone in the staff was very friendly and helpful. They delighted everyone of us when one of our travelers was presented with a scarf and two beautiful bouquets of garden flowers, at the instant notice they learned she was celebrating a big birthday that morning.

When we had our laundry service done after a long hike at the mountains, they presented the once muddied, fouls smelling garments and hiking boots to us spotless and fresh clean for almost nothing.

We stayed 3 nights at Paramount and we had the best of times.

Room Tip: In the question of lake view or mountain view. Lake view wins if you like to see how everyday Inthar...

I stayed in this hotel just for one night. Like other reviewers mentioned in their reviews, noise from the speed boats passing to and fro at the water way in front of hotel can be quite disturbing. In terms of room rate this hotel is one of the cheapest hotels in the lake itself.

After learning the noise problem at this hotel from other reviewers, we dealt with noise problem by coming back to hotel after 7 pm, tried to sleep early to wake up was early as 4:30-5:00 am, had good breakfast and started the tour around the lake as early as 7 am.

If you are thinking to stay at the bungalow on the stilts and read your favourite book or just need a quite and tranquil moment, this hotel is not for you.

Quality of food is good and priced quite reasonable.
