Mrauk Oo Princess Resort, a sister hotel of the more prominent Inle Princess Resort, is by far the best accommodation option in town. Each of the 23 spacious, dark wood- dominated villas represents a blend of traditional furnishings and modern amenities. Both the restaurant (overlooking the lotus dotted pond) and the spa (situated on the bank of the river) are designed with an artistic touch. The landscaping is also easy on the eyes. At the time of my visit, the swimming pool was not at the visitors’ disposal but it has recently changed; from October 2015 hotel guests can cool down from the tropical heat with a splash in a 45 feet long swimming pool. The hotel staff are very friendly and can help you organize sightseeing around the temple complex or day trips to Chin villages and Wethali etc. Staying at Mrauk Oo Princess Resort gives you the rare opportunity to experience the remote, unspoiled Myanmar without compromising on the quality of your accommodation.
