“Very Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013 via mobile

Having read other reviews I wonder if we were in the same place. This is not really on the lake, but in a backwater behind reed beds that has large islands of dredged mud currently sitting in front of the front line "lake view " rooms along with a back hoe digger. another hotel is bejng built next door on the right so noisy during the day. Our first front line room had direct views of the digger and a mud island....we changed to a better position but still not great. Almost better to be on the back line as they are higher up and you avoid the noise of the boats first thing jn the morning. The room itself was impressive but nice wooden hot tub was useless as not enough hot water to fill it to a decent level and the lighting and general lay out was bizarre. No way of turning lights off or on from bed and sitting area had terrible lighting and no view of tv.
Other gripes: no real bar area to sit and have pre dinner drink; not enough seating in lobby given only internet access was there or dining room; very limited menu for dinner, particularly of local food( breakfast chiice was much better so cant understand why so few local dishes at dinner) ; service was ok but the standard of understanding of English beyond the basics was poor so any question out of the ordinary was met with blank look.; front desk failed to pass on message to us about change of pick up time from our guide, leaving us waiting on the boat dock.
some of staff were very friendly and helpful, but overall if you want a lake view hotel I would go somewhere else.

This was the best hotel during our 10 day vacation in Myanmar. The location, room, food and staff could not have been better. The room was a Villa on the lake. Would liked to have stayed longer then two days.

I´ve been in this hotel during my visit to Inle Lake in mid november 2013. The hotel is beautiful, in harmony with the environment and with a team that makes the experience unforgettable. Is a fantastic choice to go with your couple and enjoy the magic on Inle Lake.

I stayed there 3 nights with my wife for our holiday. The hotel has run only for 2 years, so all facilities are still new. More importantly, we feel the best services offered by all staffs. They are very polite, "Min-ga-la-ba" (Myanmar greeting) everywhere, and treat you like their family members. They try their best to meet all requirements from guests, whatever transportation, food, room service etc.

I traveled a lot of places in the world, i have to say it's one of the best hotels where i stayed in terms of service.

Room Tip: Room of "Lake view" is worthy of booking.

Very nice luxurious villas, nice size rooms although the setting is a little different, wifi worked in the room occasionally, breakfast and restaurant for dinner very good, unfortunately was supposed to stay 2 nights hotel was full only stayed one night then moved to a terrible hotel the Hupin Kaun Dain which spoiled a little bit of our Inle part of the trip.

Room Tip: This hotel requires a minimum 2 night stay

Cannot speak more highly of this beautiful resort. Peaceful, extremely well trained staff who are very customer focussed. We stayed for two nights in August 2013 and would love to have stayed longer. Rooms are well serviced and spacious. Local trips to the floating villages are well worth it. We certainly felt very special and hated to say goodbye.

Room Tip: Over the lake are the best rooms but the whole resort has a peaceful ambience
