I stayed with a friend in a suite and it was such a relaxing place to be, so refreshing compared to the business of Yangon! It was a very welcoming place and we ate dinner here both nights and greatly enjoyed it, a real bonus if you are really into food and wine. There are less expensive options on the main road, but none come close to the hotel's quality of food in my opinion. The breakfast was amazing too, more western focused, which was ok with me :) The suite had a separate sitting area with a couch and the bedroom was spacious enough, works well for two people. It was in the 80s/90s when we were there, but it cooled off enough at night to make the lack of central air con manageable. (There is a cooling unit in the bedroom). Kudos to them for being so eco friendly, which is very rare in this part of the world from what I have seen...We did not mind that it was not on the lake, there is enough atmosphere being over the water on the lagoon and I think it actually may have been better vs. the noise of the boats on the lake during the night, etc. Definitely recommend checking this place out, it was the best hotel experience in Myanmar during our nine day stay!
