                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

                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.

The distant from the town to resort about 1 hour by boat (~20000 Kyat/way) and they have only one restaurant w the food not delicious, n have no place more for ur dinner. The breakfast not bad.

                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.

                The hotel is located in the south area of the lake. It takes a good hour by boat to get there but it's a good ride to start discovering the rate. It's the perfect place to relax and immerse into a quite atmosphere. Amazing sunrises and sunset straight from my guest room. The only inconvenience is that in the evening you have no other dining choice and it's not easy to reach the hiking/biking trails. Reccomended

                Deceiving Hotel Photos”
                Hotel is old and rundown, its clean but alot of features are falling apart. The ensuite bath tub tiles are stained yellow, which I was really disgusted by it. Not to mention the noise of the passing by boats can be quite annoying. We arrived on a market day, in less than 15 min in the room, I think there were like 50 boats past us by. Staff were not informative, we were not briefed on what we are getting in the tour. In the end, we canceled our tour half way through because it was just factories visiting. Which was a total waste of our time. Overall, our experience was not great despite we indicated that we will be on our honeymoon beforehand. To all honeymooner, avoid this place at all cost.

                It is accessible only by water taxi, but the ride you places is nice. You get a quality breakfast included and the rooms are nice. They need better, more consistent wi fi for those who don't have a phone plan on Myanmar.

                Noisy but rather special”
                The cabins are comfortable and well-appointed, and being actually on the lake on stilts just as the houses in the nearby villages are makes it quite special. There is constant racket from the boats passing, but surprisingly we grew quickly accustomed to the background noise. The food is very indifferent so it is recommended to eat elsewhere at lunch, the only meal it is really practical to avoid at the hotel

                We only stayed here one night, at it was perfect! The arrival by boat was just magical. True what people say about the noise from the boats, but in our opinion, that was just a part of experiencing the local life at the lake, plus it was quiet at night. The rooms are a bit old and dark, but one should stay here for the experience of living right on the lake and the amazing view. Would probably not recommend staying here for long, as the food could have been better, but for 1-2 nights I would try it out. We stayed one night and then moved to another nearby hotel at the mainland.

                The best part is the layout . It's all on the water with bungalows. Pleasant to walk around. At night you can see a pagoda in the background. Very close to monastery. It is a bit noisy at times during the day as some boats pass in the background. Food was 10+. Really good. The staff members forgot to prepare a takeaway breakfast for us but it happens. Some pidgeos made a nest in our family suite and it was a bit smelly on the verandah. The floor was also noisy. The hotel is far away from the airport more than 1 hour drive and boat. All in all very happy with the hotel. Decent prices for spa and massage.
