Inle Lake in Burma has been a revelation for me, its sunsets, the friendly people and their nice smiles, their temples, ... Nowhere else I have felt so calm and peaceful like I felt there. Contemplating sunsets every day was a special event. It is the first time I seriously want go back somewhere and live there for a long time, in peace ...
This hotel is on the main street of the town of Nyaung Shwe, on the shores of Inle Lake. It is a small hotel, with two floors and 16 rooms. Its architecture reminds one of the holiday season houses with sloping roofs and wooden balconies. Inside, the decor is careful, and the walls have numerous examples of Burmese handicrafts. The rooms are very comfortable and complete. The hotel has a small restaurant for breakfast, where you can eat lunch at a fairly reasonable price. Very complete breakfast served at the table. I recommend the spa with numerous treatments and massages. It is true they are not as economical as in many houses in the town, but worth it for the professionalism, facilities, and above all for the service. Specifically, traditional massage is fantastic.
The Paramount Inle Resort is a hotel located on lake Inle. The rooms are cabins scattered around the lake with a main building used as a reception and restaurant. It is a 3-star hotel and the service is very attentive. The comfortable restaurant where dinner is delicious and if ordered in time they can prepare a Spanish Omelette - fantastic, as is logical because it was a chef who had taught them. I stayed one night and it turned out very nice I also had a viewpoint from which to see a wonderful sunset over the lake, as well as the sunrise.
The Remember Inn is in a quiet area, close to the main street of Nyaung Shwe, where the bustle of restaurants, cafes, travel agencies and tourist bike hire is. The hotel has two types of accommodation, huge rooms with private baths for $8 and bungalows outside which are a bit more expensive. The owner speaks very good English and is a very lively person. One of the best things is that the breakfast is taken on the roof of the fourth floor, where you are surrounded by mountains, and a western breakfast is served or you can ask for a Burmese breakfast with noodle soup
Although it cost me a little to book from Mandalay and I warned that would arrive on the bus at 2am when I arrived, it was freezing cold in the street because kalaw is 1,500 meters above sea level, the hotel owner told me that there was a mix up and they were full. I looked at her and said if she wanted me to sleep on the street, and then I got a room in the old hotel for $ 5, the next day did nothing more than apologize and you gave me a bigger room with private bath for $ 8 . The owner knows several trekking guides so it is a good place for fellow travelers and the price can be spread between more people
