      Inle Lake was one of the highlights of our trip to Burma, and for me, the Shwe Inn Tha Floating resort was the cherry on top. We LOVED our stay here - from the cute little floating bungalow with a bed covered by a mosquito net to the great pool and poolside bar. Food at the resort was good, especially the breakfast. If you wanted to arrange for a dinner not at the resort, that would be a little bit difficult, as you have to take a longtail boat to go anywhere. Our flight from Yangon was late but we had communicated with the resort beforehand and we were expertly ferried in the dark of the lake to the resort. Be forewarned that this is a two hour trip - one hour in a car and another hour in the longtail boat from Nyongshwe to the resort at the south end of the lake. We got massages and facials at the spa, which uses Dermalogica products and we were very pleased with the service. Overall staff were very kind, friendly, and helpful. Only downside was that the resort wifi was a bit weak.

      An amazing experience- Life on the Lake!”

      My husband, son and I stayed here for 4 nights in October (just before the peak season) and were really pleased we booked to stay on the lake. The hotel was about 1 hour from Nyaung Shwe and only accessible by long boat so each day we got to see what daily life was like for the locals whilst enjoying the comforts of the hotel. The staff at the hotel were friendly and very helpful and the restaurant had an extensive menu to cater for all. The bartender was fab and made some great cocktails too. Our bungalows were spacious and the additional outdoor shower was a great experience. Not having a tv in the room allowed to spend time together playing games and talking which I personally loved; although the wifi was much better than I expected. There is a lot of noise from the longboats as they go past (hotel provide earplugs) but we didn't use them as it just added to the experience. I would definitely recommend staying at Shwe Inn Tha to make your trip to Inle Lake a memorable one!

      Very good”

      Shwe Inn Tha Floating Resort was a lovely, relaxing way to enjoy Inle Lake! Away from the crowded Nyaungshwe had both postives and negatives, however: as it is so remote, it is practically impossible to eat dinner anywhere besides the resort restaurant (which was only mediocre). Additionally, unless you're prepared and have a boat lined up, expect the resort's boats to be crazy expensive! Fortunately, someone had recommended a boat guide to us and we paid half of what we would have paid with the hotel-arranged boat for the day. Overall, I would highly recommend this resort... as long as pre-arranged boats are scheduled and one is prepared to eat at the expensive restaurant!

      The warmest, kindest staff you could ever hope to meet”

      We, my daughter and I, stayed at Shwe Inn Tha for nearly a week recently. My daughter was laid up with a fever so we really appreciated being in such a good place. So unbelievably peaceful. Yes, sure, the boats go up and down but that's an integral part of life on this lake. Personally I thought it was fascinating to be so close to it all. The staff were amazing. So warm, friendly and thoughtful. I have never felt so welcome in a hotel anywhere. It was an experience for life. Don't come here expecting 5-star luxury, it-s not that kind of place. Come here instead with a smile and get to know the people working here, enjoy the incredible privilege of spending some time living in their lake home. And ny all means, come in the monsoon season. The prices are way cheaper and if you decide to enjoy it, the rain storms are a pure pleasure.

      Ive now stayed at three hotels in Inlay over the years. All have been "floating" hotels on stilts. All with private bungalows. The other two, the Ann Heritage Lodge and the Sky Lake were solid choices with great rooms and great service. I liked the Shwe Inn Tha the best. The rooms were big and new. The service was excellent. It was low key and pleasant. The location was great. My favorite that I've seen.

      Great hotel with a great staff in great location”

      The hotel is great because it's on the lake with nice views and you get to see the daily life's of the local people driving around on their boat's. This creates a wonderful atmosphere which makes Inle Lake a very unique experience. I haven't seen another place like this in my travels around South East Asia. Then you add in the wonderful staff and the very friendly locals is just a bonus. I wouldn't call this a con but when you stay here your in the middle of the lake . So you might have to eat at the hotel restaurant more than than I would of liked. Although the food was good and staff is friendly and well trained. Personally I just like to try many restaurants on my travels. I will stay here again on my next visit to Inle Lake.

      We couldn't have chosen a better hotel!”

      Staying on the water means a better vantage point for photographing sunrise and sunset, and that's what we and a group of avid photographers did. It saved us time to get to the lake. We were right on it. I even had the opportunity to row a canoe, although the waves churned up by passing board could easily tip the canoe over. Expect the noise from the passing board, but after dark until about 5am, it was quiet. the hotel is very well designed, the bungalows - all on water, much like how the Inthas built their houses - spacious. The bathroom has a run and opens out to outdoor shower. The good is expensive but not much more than eating out in other hotels. The hotel is very close to the Nan Pan village and market, a must go place. Definitely returning if I come to Inle Lake again. Leaving it and the warm friendly staff was hard to do.

      it was just right after a storm so most tourist in inle lake cancelled with almost most hotels in the area including this one, turned out we were the only guests. it was awesome since no one blocked any of the gorgeous views in the hotel and places around inle. the hotel is great due to location. it's located at major water way so lots of boats pass thru it. this might not be ideal for others due to the loudness of the motors but I'm a city girl so this did not really bother me. we stayed in the junior suite. great for multiple parties. give the AC time to cool off the room. overall I really liked this hotel. it was basic and simple yet it still provided the necessity I can't do without like ac, wifi, clean water.

      Perfect hotel for Inle Sunrise”

      Travelling to Inle Lake early morning after a long overnight bus trip, the hotel is nice enough to allowed us check in at 8am! We got the room No. 104, perfect room for sunrise view by the lake! There is a outdoor rain forest shower, which is superb! The room comes with a very good balcony, although there is a lot of notice or comment on the noise of boat, but we did not find it a problem. The hotel is clean, the staff are all very nice! Thumbs up and definitely a five star stay if you want a peaceful stay on the lake!

      Unique about the Shwe Inn Tha Floating hotel is that you cannot exit or enter it other then by boat (unless you are a really good swimmer). This makes this hotel the perfect retreat for solo travelers in Myanmar who want to escape from the world and have a quite night below the stars and above the water.

      Fantastic place, so relaxing! The staff were wonderful and extremely friendly. It is an hour boat ride from the main town which makes it quite remote and very tranquil. The boats drive up the lake all day starting from 6am, the hotel provides you with ear plugs- use them! You need to eat at the restaurant as you will not be able to travel to any other places at night. We wish they had a little more traditional dishes to choose from as we wanted to eat local dishes. The massage was devine and I highly recommend it to all people. Thanks for making my Inle Lake experience a great one!

      Good hotel, expensive transportation ”

      Great boutique hotel in the middle of Inle Lake. Very friendly and accommodating service and good food. BUT plan to bring some money for all the hidden fees. As a solo traveler, I paid 25,000 to taxi from the airport to the port, 15,000 for the ferry from the port to the hotel, 15,000 for the ferry and 20,000 for the taxi back. That doesn’t include the 10,500 tourist fee, or a boat tour (20,000) which the port company pushes very, very hard.

      Brilliant location & they do their utmost best”

      but it's still Myanmar, so definitely not perfect - but then again, wouldn't perfection be boring ? Little points for improvement : the poolbar poors gin&tonics behind the bar, rather than serving them with the gin in the glass and the tonic on the side, and for a good reason : the tonic is local stuff, completely undrinkable with a smell of Vim (a cleaning product). When we ordered new drinks, the barman was amazed, but never got round to charging us for the replacements, so : bravo. Another annoying point is the extremely low water pressure in the shower (strange feeling when you're surrounded by the stuff but don't get enough of it on you...) and very small light in the bathroom, so impossible to shave. Big positive = location, on the lake, 1 hour by boat from Nyaung Shwe (not entirely sure this was included in the hotel price, some things had been arranged by our travel agent). Great value for money too (paid 98 USD for 2 rooms, including 4 pax breakfast for 1 night).

      Wonderful place to see the sunset”

      This hotel is suitable for re-treat vacation. If you choose this place, go for the lake tour and come back here to enjoy a full night, you can rent a bike to explore the town when you wait for your bus to travel to other place. Location: it’s downside of the lake and takes nearly 1hr by boat from the boat stop in the town center. I traveled from Bagan to inle by night bus and reached Inle at 5am, there were many boat guides giving me offers about lake tour. I need a boat to reach this hotel anw so I chose a combo half day lake tour (see sunrise on the lake) and transfer me to the hotel with 22,000 kyats/2pax, they asked me 4,000 kyats for tuk tuk from bus station to the boat stop -> AVOID THAT, as just take you 5mins to go and you can definitely walk. Services: decent wifi, good outdoor shower, perfect place for sunset, big room, good rum cocktails, dinner is very ok with traditional food (I order fish dish-it was yummy), helpful staffs. Remember to bring anti-mosquito spray/cream

      Magical place”

      We were a little worried about this place from some previous reviews but were soon relieved once we arrived. It is a fair hike of taxi and boat ride (1.5-2 hours), but so are most places on the lake. We paid $35USD each way, organised prior to arrival via Agoda app, plus an extra 15,000pp to enter the lake. Our location was actually perfect for the day tours around the markets as well. The place itself was very lovely, with great character. We found it to be very clean and comfortable, enjoying an indoor and outdoor shower. The only downsides were (as mentioned in other reviews) the noise at night/early morning, although the reception will give you earplugs. Also the food was a bit mediocre. The restaurant would benefit from some soft music playing and better lighting for more ambience. Overall thought it was a beautiful property with an unbeatable location for a lake experience!

      Very good”

      We found the stay at this hotel very good for the price it was (we had a last minute offer). The resort is nice, with a superb view for sunset from our room. The people are really nice also. To visit the lake, it is really nice when you wake up early and go directly south to the markets and then Sankar lake because you are closer to it so you are there before all the other tourists. Only bad thing about the room is the light of it: really too white, not warm enough.

      Sth end of lake”

      The best location for relaxing at Inle..... an hour from Heho airport then another hour across the lake. All worth it...like being on another planet where cars and roads don’t exist, just boats and waterways. Beautiful people and a location unspoilt by progress.
