At Solidarasia, we have organized custom-made and personalized travels in Southeast Asia for 15 years. We offer country real life experiences, encounters with country locals and to promote some communities project. We discovered Thitaw Lay House in 2013 and since then we never changed. It is simply the best, if you like nature, privacy, quietness and authenticity. Their rooms are very comfortable, the breakfast is a real treat and discovery on its own, garden is so peaceful and relaxing. As they present themselves, it is a guest house with heart, unique, the kind of places we like to present in our travels.

I´ve only been to Kalaw for one night, as I did the the trekking tour from there to Inle Lake. I spent the night in the Thitaw Lay House and it was very nice stay! It´s about 15 min by foot to the city center and it is a very peaceful place. The owner is very helpful and the breakfast was very good. Thank you very much for the nice stay!

We stayed here for 5 days in march 2019. It is a great, calm, green environment to stay. The yard is like a paradise. Staff is truly friendly and breakfast is very nice with fresh ingredients. The rooms are cosy and clean, will all comfort needed, without being to much. It is a nice walk to the center of Kalaw, wich is a great place during day and for a nice dinner in the evening. Excellent place to stay!

The place is beautiful and unique. The houses are made of wood and the price is cheap compared to what we expected. The host recommended us some hikes and he even woke up earlier than usual for making us breakfast.

Good - Breakfast was nice with a variety of local produce. Bad - Came here expecting more based on reviews. Had the bungalow at the edge of property. Can be a little dark at night, would do better with a little more lighthing. Room was very big with high ceiling maybe 30m2 with 5-6m ceiling. Bedding felt damp due to the weather which is understandable. Only had one small tiny floor heather. Sockets were placed in non strategic locations. Heater had a short cable rendering it pretty useless. Taking a shower also became a challenge as it was cold. Stay was quite misearable as we felt cold and damp the whole night. In addition, had some weird animal noises which I think is cat + dog. There are only 4 rooms in Thitaw Ley - 2 Bungalow and 2 in the main building. You might consider Thitaw 2 which is next to the main building.
