Insight into British hill station
The building itself which was built by the Briish when they controlled Myanmar, the gardens which are lovely, food and ambience
We only stayed on night en-route to Inle Lake and would definitely go again.

An English cottage in the Myanmar mountains
Gardens, Quite place, relaxing
Unfortunately our room was not well maintained, and the walls of the bathroom and partially of the bedroom were scarped because of the humidity

Comfortable and Cosy English Country House style h
Lovely Gardens, friendly staff, quiet
Relaxing and Quiet. Location is away from town, so a 30 minute walk or 5 minute car ride away from restaurants etc. Lovely gardens.

Peaceful hotel
Quiet place, with nice garden
we stayed for one night. quiet place to be, big bed, big room, all kinds lemon shampoo and shower gel. european breakfast is good, with nespresso machine! walking distance (20 min) from kalaw. wooden floor upstairs could be a little bit noisy if you're staying downstairs.

Very well manicured property
Excellent food, superb hospitality
Amara Mountain Resort was a very relaxing place to lay our heads after our day trips into the mountains/caves. The food was great and the general manager Alex was very helpful with arranging everything for us at fair prices. Try the pizza, only place around that imports real mozzarella and if you're in central Myanmar, it's likely you haven't seen or heard of pizza for a while!

Cómoda habitación, buen sitio para iniciar treks.
Excelente habitación, buen acceso internet (esto no es frecuente en Myanmar) y posibilidad de contratar trek desde propio hotel.
Habitación realmente cómoda, hotel a 1 km. aprox del centro de Kalaw. Posibilidad de contratar trek desde propio hotel, algo más caro,pero mejor que el estándar(cocinero propio, buen guía aunque). Resto de instancia es muy básicas aunque todo nuevo y limpio.
