I booked this hotel after reading good reviews about it from TripAdvisor. Well, it lived up to my expectation. The food in the restaurant was great. Reasonably priced and delicious. Breakfast was sumptuous and nicely presented.
Room is huge and spacious. One of the biggest hotel rooms I have ever seen. Peaceful and quiet surrounding. This is a perfect place for honeymooners. I had an in-room massage which was very relaxing.
However, I find it a little pricey. Maybe it was peak season when I went. But the service is tip top. Everyone I met was friendly. If you want to book an Inle Lake boat trip, maybe you can consider booking it elsewhere besides the hotel. A guide approached me when I was cycling around town and the price he quoted was far cheaper than that of the hotel.
The bicycle rental from the hotel is pretty expensive too. But overall, it's a nice experience and I'd recommend this hotel to those who visit Nyaungshwe.
