Hotel Description

Situated less than two hours by car from Inle, and surrounded by a picturesque lake, Pindaya is located in the western part of the Shan State of Burma. Trek through the hills and around the countryside to soak in the landscapes filled with farms and tribal villages. Witness the thousands of Buddhist images inside the celebrated ancient limestone Pindaya Caves. Wander around the local produce market to experience the quaint town’s indigenous customs and culture. Shop for traditional handcrafted Shan paper umbrellas. Savour delicious Burmese cuisine. A road less travelled—Pindaya.

Surrounded by the host’s organic garden and featuring beautiful mountain views, red soil and green plantations, embrace a new simple farmhouse, which was carefully constructed in the traditional Shan way. Nestled in the farmlands away from any noise with idyllic scenery, this cosy luxury 5-bedroom farmhouse set on seven acres of land is just a 5-minute drive from Pindaya or a 30-minute stroll through the fields.

“I created Pindaya Farmhouse to show the world the beauty of Shan State and the friendly and simple Danu people’s rural lifestyle. I love sharing my favourite food with guests, walking around the village and farms, embracing the silence, and listening to the birdsong.”
