Couldn't be happier with our stay here. We stayed here during the Water Festival and the location on the other side of the river from the town was perfect for a great bit of peace and quiet during the festival. The staff were particularly helpful, helping us to organise treks, taxis about town and transport between towns. Would highly recommend it.

I stayed here in March, as part of a three week itinerary arranged by Tour Mandalay The room was fairly spacious with a verandah that overlooked the river. Although there was no phone in the room, there was a sort of mini cowbell outside the door, which you could ring, if you needed something from reception. There was no wifi in the room but there was a fairly good connection from reception or the dining room. There was a large screen TV in the dining room. I ate in the hotel on the two nights I was there and enjoyed both my dinners. All in all, this hotel was a pleasant and comfortable place to stay, with helpful reception staff.

While I was here, Tour Mandalay arranged for me to take a boat ride to the confluence of the Dodthawaddy river. This was an interesting and enjoyable trip.

As all hotels in Myanmar, this one was also a bit overpriced compared to other south east asian countries.
Very nice and friendly staff, the breakfast is very good, lots of choices a la carte (included in the room price).
The view and atmosphere is fantastic, the town of Hsipaw on the other side of the river is easily reachable by boat from the resort (free of charge), or a short taxi ride.
We stayed there 4 nights, and will come back to this resort on our next Hsipaw trip.

We just drove through an had a coffee in the resort. The service was great and the rooms are great with a balcony that is located "on the river".
The village is small and off the maim road.
We loved the place.

Bungalows are nice with a view on the river. Rooms are beautifully styled with modern conveniences and a sense of place. Big bathrooms.
Gorgeous restaurant, I've eaten in many restaurants in Myanmar where they serve very attractive food, but Riverside @ Hsipaw Resort restaurant, the food was top attractive and tasted great.
The manager of this hotel was extremely accommodating, informative and professional,
Staff was the best- couldn't be nicer and more helpful. They made us feel extremely welcome. They were incredible.
They are setting a very high standard of service here at this hotel.
I strongly recommend this hotel, and without doubt I will go back

Just completed a two night stay in this hotel. Place is pretty new and it is obvious staff are still finding their bearings. However they are wonderful and are doing their utmost best that it is actually very endearing.

Rooms are of exceptional standard and beat a lot of the established places in this region. Rooms are large, very large and the bathrooms are huge! Quality products provided as well. There is AC and NO television which I think is fantastic as all you need to keep you busy is to interact with the Shan people who are so friendly. Just hope the tourist expansion of the region preserves the unique character of the place and people.

One note : it can get cold, very cold !! You have dinner and BF (both of excellent quality and freshly cooked- you can see kitchen from the eating area) outside which for us was just manageable but could be deemed impossible for other travellers. Don't forget to pack warm clothes if you plan to go in winter.

My recommendation to owners will be to provide some form of heating albeit by electric blankets or air heaters as the rooms do get very cold.

Your visit coincided with a very cold weather, which took everybody including the locals by surprise. We are very sorry to learn that you were cold in the resort. Please note that your feedback is very valuable for us. Since your visit we bought electrical heaters and electrical quilt warmers for all our rooms. We also bought some electrical heaters for the dining room. Should you visit us again, we are sure that this time your stay will be absolutely flawless.
