Perfect overnight stay

Mark (he's so helpful and approachable), the breakfast! (Beuatiful), bungalows (eco friendly)
I could not recommend this place enough. Mark and his partner have planned Thitaw Lay with such a respect for their surroundings. Their hotel is quaint but appropriate for Kalaw - and the breakfast! Wow :) Freshly baked bread made with a starter from Belgium and using a wood fire stove built in their garden. Homemade jams taking advantage of the beautiful local produce available in Shan state. I'm so glad we stayed here in this beautiful little town.

Mountainside retreat

welcoming owners, amazing sleep quality, breakfast
We stayed one night before a trek from Kalaw to Inle lake. This is a great place to stay. Very clean, and very nice room with an amazing bed. The showers were hot. The owner was lovely, very helpful. The breakfast is amazing, and you can take banana bread for your hike. Highly recommend!

Great place to stay at

Quiet location, clean and comfortable rooms, great breakfast
We really enjoyed our stay at the Thitaw Lay Guesthouse. Marc was a great help giving us local knowledge for walks in the area, the breakfast was amazing (freshly baked bread and homemade jams) and the room, especially the beds, were really comfortable.

Great stay in Kalaw

We stayed in a garden chalet which was great. Location is good, near enough to town for easy walk in enables you to also enjoy the quite away from the hustle of the centre. Breakfast excellent .
This B&B is in a good location, a 15 minute leisurely walk into town, great for walks in the surrounding area. Rooms were very clean and comfortable in a peaceful setting and breakfast was delightful, home made bread, banana cake and pancakes, with home made jams. The owners were very helpful and friendly, a great place to stay if you are trekking in the area or staying over to then do the Kalaw to Inle walk. I only wish I could have spent more time there.

Wonderful place to stay

Beautiful location, great hospitality, fabulous room and breakfast
We have visited Myanmar twice and this has been our favourite hotel/guest house out of the many different places we have stayed. I do not believe I have ever rated anywhere 10/10, so believe me when I say we could not fault our stay here. The setting is lovely - beautiful gardens (watch out for the "alcoholic" cow that visits the gardens to eat the fermenting fruits that have fallen from the trees!), with walks in the forest and a monastery on your doorstep and by far the best breakfasts in Myanmar (including homemade breads, jams and yoghurt). Marc is an extremely welcoming and helpful host and his staff are equally friendly and eager to please. We stayed in the studio which was spacious, comfortable, clean and modern whilst still managing to retain a traditional charm. It has a private outdoor area where you can sit and relax and enjoy the view. We could have stayed here for a week and enjoyed the ambience! Thitaw Lay is set on a hillside and is about 15 minutes walk from the centre of Kalaw. We enjoyed the walk when going out to eat of an evening (and visiting the local market in the morning) but you can also arrange for food to be delivered if you are too tired from hiking. It is also situated on the right side of town for easy access to the railway station (Myanmar trains are a great experience if you do not have a deadline to get somewhere and have plenty of time to spare!!). All in all we loved our stay in Kalaw - it is a great area to visit and you could not choose a better place to stay than Thitaw Lay House.
