We were not expecting much, having read the varying reviews, with some reporting rodents & cockroaches! Hence, we were pleasantly surprised with our enormous and clean Deluxe room no 210. There was a double and single bed and mattresses were comfortable. The décor was fine with us. No issues with wifi from our room, it was adequate for what’s app messaging & emails. The room had no TV but we did not mind. We had both the indoor shower over the bathtub, as well as the outdoor shower. There was adequate water pressure & hot water for showering. Our room did not face the religious chanting and thankfully, the noise from the boats was not jarring. When we were there in mid Dec 2013, the country was hit by a cold spell and Inle lake, being at a higher altitude above sea level, was the coldest of the places we visited in Myanmar. It was too cold to use the swimming pool. It was cold at night despite turning on the heater function on the air conditioner unit. (Hence, we did not experience any mosquitoes.) Tip: wear their bathrobes to keep warm in bed. The best thing about Shwe Inn Tha Floating Resort was the view of sunrise over the lake. Our room 210 had a great view and we could view the sunrise from our open air deck.
Food-wise: we had a late heavy lunch, hence we skipped dinner and went to bed early, anticipating that we would be woken early by the boats & planning to wake up early for the sunrise. Breakfast was buffet with local and western selection but our favourite was this mouth-watering shan noodles in coconut soup / gravy. Yum yum.
Shwe Inn Tha Floating Resort is located on the southern part of Inle lake. From Nyaung Shwe town, it is one hour therapeutic boat ride to the resort. Inle lake is gorgeous and Shwe Inn Tha Floating Resort made our visit even more memorable.
