It's all about breakfast!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 Jan 2017
We originally booked to the stay for one night, but we enjoyed our stay so much, that we extended our stay to three nights. As others have commented, a real draw of Thitaw is the breakfast spread; homemade crepes, banana bread, bread, jams and yoghurt, washed down with good coffee and fresh fruit. The owner Marc, is very friendly and helpful, offering hiking suggestions with such detailed instructions that a day's hike is possible without the need of a guide. Thitaw is a charming B&B located about 2km from Kalaw centre, and is ideally situated to explore the town and the surrounding countryside and tribal villages. It is also a great base to start a 2-3 day hike to Inle lake. The rooms themselves are basic but clean and comfortable. There is also a laundry service available at an extremely reasonable rate. Our stay was as good as we had anticipated, having read other reviews on tripadvisor, don't delay, book today!

Thitaw lay house is a delightful, quirky and charming B&B in Kalaw. The perfect place to stay if you are hiking from Kalaw to Inle lake. Our host could not have been more helpful and the breakfast was the best breakfast we have had in Myanmar.

Room tip: The rooms can be cold at night so make sure you have enough blankets.

We really enjoyed our short stay in this B&B located in Kalaw hills, great place to relax and enjoy nature. Marc, the owner, gave us a free upgrade! We booked thitaw two and we stayed at thitaw house which i really recommend. Thitaw house breakfast ( which is not the same as thitaw two) was amazing, the bread made there and the banada cake taste incredible, we even had crepes! definitely recommended!

We booked two nights here after travelling from Bagan. We were met by the host, Mike, who is so accomodating, patient, and made us feel very special.
The breakfast is outstanding - better than that provided in some top hotels we stayed in whilst visiting Myanmar.
We were given excellent advice, assisted with taxis, bookings, and even delivered takeaway meals to save going into town. Nothing is too much of a problem, and we certainly loved our stay in these beautiful surroundings, very clean facilities, and most hospitable staff.

Thitaw Lay deserves its reputation as a lovely guesthouse. It's situated in the hills above Kalaw, about 2km away from the bus stop and a bit closer to the train station. There are a number of day hikes in the area which the guesthouse can advise you on if you're not planning a multi day trek with one of the local companies. Breakfast is delicious and rooms are comfortable with reasonable wifi. If you're too lazy to walk into town for dinner, they will bring you tasty takeaways (cheap and generously portioned). Definitely recommended.
