Just newly renovated this is in fact a nice little hotel with a very good level of comfort. Managed by a Swiss french speaking team the level of service is very good and advice excellent. The restaurant that was there before the renovation of the lodge is very good, not the best service arround though. As the hotel is near the center it is easy to find alternative places to have a meal. The breakfast was simply the best we had in Myanmar.
The rooms are modern, spacious and very clean. The hotel is not located on the lake itself but in the Nyaungshwe city centre which is better than beeing locked in a lake hotel if you want to move around. It is nevertheless very near the canal and it will take you by boat around 15min to reach the lake for your visits. Only thing. Do not expect to sleep very late as the humming noise of the boats passing by stops at arround 8 PM and starts again around 5 AM (was not a problem for us because we always started our excursions early). If you are very sensitive to noise it can be an issue, Ask for a room not too close to the boating area.
Overall a very recommandable place.
