Lovely place
We thought it would be fun to stay at an old British Hill Station and we were not disappointed. The place is lovely and felt as if we were being treated like British royalty! The GM seemed new and was still learning about the hotel and about Kalaw but this did not hinder our opinion of the place!

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!
