“Delightful, but be prepared for noise early in the morning.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2013

Upon landing at Heho airport, its about 45-60 minutes to the harbour area and then another 45 or so minutes by boat. The lake is quite shallow, so don't worry, but if it rains it might not be fun!

The resort is brilliant! On stilts on the road and watching the sun go down on your little veranda is delightful. The food is average and like most of Myanmar, a bit oily in parts, but generally ok. Remember, its on the lake so don't expect fine dining. The staff were friendly and efficient and what with the setting, its quite blissful. In-room spa facilities can be arranged and are value for money.

We did a couple of trips out of the resort and they were good.

One thing, they wake up early and so if you have a lake facing cottage, then the boats come noisily past you from just after dawn so don't expect a lazy lie in. The rooms are beautiful appointed and relaxing despite the boats flying past.

All in all, blissful!

Room Tip: There are several trips/tour on offer. The market is good, but the 8,000kyat short boat ride and wal...

We stayed for two nights at this nice hotel on the lake. We loved arriving by boat and were given a bungalow facing the lake. The bungalow is made of teak, with a thatched roof and balcony facing the water and the sea gulls. The rooms are well fitted, with safe, fridge, a/c, mosquito nets and a reasonable bathroom.

However, the lighting, even in the bathroom was poor, and unless you huddled in one corner of the bedroom you could not read. Teak walls look very pleasant but reduce the effect of any light levels, so even more lighting should be provided.
Wifi was non existent in the cabins and intermittent in the reception or deck area. Both these aspects were annoying given there is not a lot else to do after sunset.

The dining room was pleasant , but no a/c in there even on one muggy night , and the windows were not open either. The food is fine but quite limited both for breakfast and dinner, both of which most people eat there.

However the service was good with friendly help at each step, whether embarking onto boats or asking for extra items, laundry etc or in the restaurant.

Given the hotels setting, giving access to much of the lake with its multitude of villages huddling along the shore, the pagodas and temples around the lake and all to see in the area, it is an ideal base to stay and venture out from on a daily basis

Wonderful photographic views of the sunrise (from our balcony ) and sunset can be taken

Room Tip: Try to get a room with balcony facing the lake, to watch the lake traffic----- it is fun watching th...

Paramount hotel 
We stayed 3 nights in the paramount hotel on the lake.
First we were on standards rooms which were dark but clean.
Then we were in the superior rooms which were really nice with incredible view on the lake.Rooms were really clean, they made an evening housekeeping every day to prepare beds and clean rooms.
The balcony were really nice to enjoy the traffic on the lake, a little noisy because of boats, but it the same all over the lake.
Staff from the hotel were incredibly nice, kind, smiling.
Mrs Kin Po the manager of the hotel is a really nice lady always here to help us booking boat trips and taxi to the airport.
The restaurant of the hotel was good, especially wonderful staff.
American Breakfast was really good with a lot of toasts, croissants and other kind of bread.Choice of eggs any kind you want, with potato and sausages, fruit juice and fresh fruit also included in this combo.
This hotel is very well located on the lake, which is a good point to start trips early in the morning to enjoy the life of people and villages around.

After many days of temples in Myanmar I really enjoyed relaxing at this lovely resort on Lake Inle. You are away from the city and the resort can arrange boat trips for excursions or to visit restaurants. Its a ca. 1h trip from the pier to get to the resort but if you want to visit the lake anyway, you would pass the resort at some point, so it saves you on the sightseeing time. Also take a canoe tour (with a paddler) to go through the smaller paths between the gardens and houses. The hotel can organize. Not everybody speak great English but especially an older lady is very kind and organizes everything for you. Her English is great. You can even get an in room massage here and from the balcony or restaurant you have an amazing sunset view!

That's probably one of the best Inle lake resorts, directly on the lake with one of the best service we experienced in Myanmar, very good food (try Myanmar breakfast) and excellent value for Money. We would have liked to stay longer yet it was fully booked. The reception and restaurant staff was extremely helpful and accomodating. I would highly recommend to stay here.

I stayed here three night, one night in the deluxe cottage facing the lake and two nights in a standard room. There is no big difference in the two tyoes of rooms, the deluxe have a nice terrace on the stilts that allows you to enjoy sunsets (if you are on the right row of cottages). Standard rooms have very thin walls and you even hear the neighbors snorting at night... The hotel is located in an area where all boats have to pass to go to the touristic places, so you will hear the engine's noise all over the day.
Apart from this, the staff at the hotel are so friendly and helpful in organizing boat trips and suggest you where to go, food at the restaurant is excellent!
If you have time, rent a canoe for one hour and go to the village in front of the hotel. You will meet the local people and enjoy some real life instead of spending the whole day watching them from the boat

You have to take a 45 minute long boat ride on Inle Lake to get there, but a beautiful place with good food and an elegant atmosphere. Tastefully decorated and not the kind of place we usually choose-it is pricey but all of Myanmar is costly for now. When we stayed, the geriatric set was in full force.
