“Jan 18
It would be an understatement to say this property is “”impressive.”” The lakeside location is the preferred side of the huge lake. The amenities are extensive and meant for long stays.
We arrived by mini-van, but the usual method is by boat which is quite an experience. Later the next day we had that experience. Our bungalow is called a “”Lake House”” room which sits on the natural edge of the lake. Other inside bungalows have only proximity to man-made ponds. Our chalet #212 was very far from the dining and common areas, which reminded me of some of our luxury tent rooms in Tanzania’s Sarengeti. I would suggest more outdoor lighting and more directional signage.
The room is very spacious with a separate outdoor (no roof) shower which we didn’t use because the inside shower and tub satisfied our needs. Amenities included all the contents in the mini-fridge, mosquito net, and binoculars.
With no other easy options, the meals at breakfast and dinner were fabulous.
Overall, a better choice in Myanmar would be hard to find.
