We just spent one night here after trekking from Kalaw and before flying to Yangon.
The bed was comfortable, the rooms are spacious but dimly lit. The bathroom felt luxurious, but it might have been partly the contrast to our lodging on the trek. It is a nice feeling staying our over the lake, but the rooms were funky, probably because of the challenges of being built over water.
The food was expensive and adequate but nothing to write home about, and alternatives are a boat ride away.
As another reviewer mentioned, Paradise Inle Resort does seem to cater largely to tour groups.
We rented one of the canoes because we had some time to kill in the morning and wanted to visit the floating village nearby. We thought we'd be paddling the canoe...nope! The canoe came with paddler, which actually turned out to be a good thing, as he took us through the canals between the rows of houses for a delightful hour. Like the fishermen, he worked the oar with his leg.
There was some confusion at the desk as the room had been arranged by a travel agent, from whom we didn't get a physical voucher. They ended up keeping the itinerary I'd printed out from her in lieu of a voucher and gave us a copy...
We paid $115 for a night there. Inle Lake's popularity and the rapid growth of tourism in Myanmar are driving up prices, (plus we were there in early January, definitely peak season), but this still struck us as no bargain.
