My wife and I stayed here as part of a group tour. It had been a hectic 4 days in Burma prior to our arrival and we were in need of some luxuries. We were greeted by the team (wearing traditional Shan dress) with warm smiles and a great deal of attention. Welcome drinks were served whilst we were told...

The rooms in this hotel are all built over water. Very comfortable and spacious. The food in the restaurant, on the first floor overlooking the canal and countryside, was great. We ate a different taster menu each night, and were served delicious breakfasts each morning. Don't expect fast service, but the staff are very friendly and helpful. The cocktails were...

Had a beautiful room that was huge on stilts. It was beautifully finished and nice little touches. The breakfast was outstanding and although we didn't have any meals I am sure they would have been lovely, although expensive. There does seem to be a big jump up from eating locally and eating in hotels and we were a family of...

I would give it five stars for the lovely rooms and the great bar area. However, customer service and staff and other thinks brought it down. Realistically more like 3.5 stars but gave it benefit of the doubt. Things liked--- the beautiful way the rooms were laid out The bar area--- great cocktails at a reasonable price Things that brought...

This is a well known hotel, but not rally on the lake as the pictures suggest. Its in the city, right in the center! Right at the bridge crossing, so lots of traffic and commotion. Rooms ok, but for this price better stay on the lake, like Inle Resort or such. The city of Nyaung Shwe has nothing special. Its...

The best chocolate mousse I have ever had (and I had many all around the world)!! - no wonder with a general manager from Switzerland. We tried the 'Viewpoint crush' cocktail and came back for it three nights in a row. If you can effort the hotel rate, this is definitely the best choice in town. Beautifully designed big bungalows...

The view point lodge is a very nice hotel in nyaung schwe village. It's not directly on lake inle, you have to take a boat (30') to reach the lake. But it's nice to be in the village ! Very good rooms, amazing spa and very warm welcome from the team. I'd recommend it !

Starting with the positives of this place 1/ cabins were spacious 2/ location was good - although many other places have equally as good locations So many negatives though 1/ Inle lake boat tour - booked through the hotel was guaranteed to avoid all of the souvenir/gift sellers and shops and instead focus on the lake. We therefore booked because...

Great hotel close to the starting point to get a boat down the canal to Inle Lake itself. The place is great staff very helpful and even has its own small spa. Great massage while I was there. The bungalows have a small lounge area with a flat screen TV with satellite. The bedroom and bathroom again were large with...
