When we were planning our trip, we weighed our options: stay in Nyaung Shwe or stay on Inle Lake. We reasoned that if we stayed in Nyaung Shwe, we could walk around in the evenings and it'd be simple enough to go out on the lake. For us, it turned out to be the very best decision, followed by the decision to stay at Hotel Amazing.
We can't think of a single complaint about the hotel. We had the Amazing Suite, and it was a beautiful room, overlooking the breakfast terrace. In addition to the spacious sleeping area, there was another small room with a couch and table, surrounded by windows. The room had so many large windows, it was always light-filled and lovely. The bed was extremely comfortable, the bathroom was just great with a large tub and shower, and the room had a safe that worked. The room was very quiet throughout the day and evening and the air conditioning was great.
The staff was very sweet and always eager to help us. There were some limitations to their English, but we always succeeded in communicating with each other. We hired a boat and guide through them, and when it was too rainy they handled rescheduling for us.
Breakfast is quite good -- do get the Tasty Myanmar breakfast, we thoroughly enjoyed it. A big bowl of noodles with soft boiled eggs, a large serving of sticky rice and some kind of tempura-ed vegetable, a plate of honeydew and watermelon plus juice, rolls, and wonderful strong coffee (or tea if you prefer, of course). We enjoyed it every morning.
The location is fantastic -- a short walk to the market and bike rentals, a 15-minute walk to the boat jetty, and good restaurants all around. We rode bikes toward the mountain (away from the jetty) and had a wonderful day doing that. Our real pleasure and happiness in Nyaung Shwe is undoubtedly rubbing off on our estimation of Hotel Amazing, but Hotel Amazing really couldn't have been better.
