"This hotel definitely added to our amazing experience in Inle Lake. The staff were so friendly on arrival, and made us feel welcome. We arrived at 6am on the overnight bus, and they let us check in early which was really great of them. I had food poisoning at the time so it was a relief not to have to wait until 2pm that day! We used their bikes for free to explore the lake and surroundings, really nice added value! The hotel was also close to nice restaurants and bars within walking distance. The staff went out of their way to help us, especially when we had to book a last minute bus to Mandalay. I can't thank them enough! The breakfast was great too! The room was so spacious and comfortable too, and we got an extra heater for the room to keep us warm! I'd highly recommend this hotel! Would definitely stay again if we could! "

"Viewpoint Lodge really is a lovely place, honestly. The staff is great, the rooms were quite lovely and the cuisine was wonderful. In the bathroom they have a sample of some local materials to give yourself a mini spa experience - like thanaka, bark sap used for shampoo, etc. Very cool. It was also cool to get the breakfast buffet, because they made sure to give you a sample of a bunch of local dishes and mixed fruit coupled with some European breakfast foods (the owner is French). Very tastefully done. I wasn't in Inle Lake for too long, but I could see that they had a bunch of great, pre organized tours and experienced for everyone from solo travelers to family. The staff was wonderful as well - they helped me to book transport back to Yangon, as well as helped me get a boat to explore utterly stunning area that is Inle Lake. Seriously, this is one of the most stunning places I have ever been to. Unfortunately, the location is just rather noisy. I expect it was at one point very quiet, but over the course of the past few years the roads have really become a lot busier and it interferes with the peaceful atmosphere of the place. But the rooms do have some noise cancellation, so that's okay. The internet is unfortunately limited to the hotel lobby as well, but I think they're in the process of changing that. Was also a treat to receive a local fruit bowl every day! Would come back for sure, just hope they'd do something about the noise."

"Pros: 24hr service (?), amazing breakfast (weekend options vs week buffet), hot shower water (wait a minute), appears clean, pool if you like, wifi, air con, even dormitory has privacy with curtains between every bunk bed. Cons: wasn't exactly sure how they charged me because I paid through Agoda but they also wanted kyats?, Power is out half the time, toilets struggle to flush, sink, toilet (and shower?) water turns brown (when power is out?) I arrived at 4am from a night bus + taxi service and the metal gates to the drive we're closed but unlocked apparently as the driver just pulled them open. We walked to the entrance which is beyond the individual room buildings and after knocking and waiting someone showed up and let us in. I checked in and asked for first aid as my right ankle was swollen up and impossible to walk on (here I learned the staff's English is mediocre at best). Ended up booking an additional night as I took the day off to rest before exploring Inle lake."

"My husband and I booked the Novotel Inle Lake hotel while we were in Yangon. Somehow I had issue with the booking dates and had difficulties connecting to Agoda UK and U.S for assistance. The staff at Novotel were patient in handling my case and assisted to liaise with Agoda Singapore to make the necessary changes. We were very thankful that we managed to checked in. Novotel Inle is located at a great location in Inle with key facilities around the vicinity. Its near the longest wooden bridge in Inle, 10-15mins bicycle ride, 40mins away from the Red Mountain Winery by bicycles. Novotel provides the free bicycle. You can gain access to beautiful sunset at their sunset restaurant, pool, table pool, board games, gym etc. The place is very neat;y kept and peaceful for a beautiful and cosy stay. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to visit this place again."

"This is best hotel in my 6 days in Myanmar! This hotel is within walking distance to Mingular Market where the local people buy the necessities. I was blessed as during my stay, there was also a festive market around. There is also a Thai massage within walking distance on the left said of hotel where the foot massage is only 3000Kyat for 30mins. This hotel is also accessible to the jetty where we took the boat in the Inle Lake. This hotel is very clean, new and very tastefully done up."

"I stayed at Paradise Inle Resort in 2014 for 3 nights. I fell in love with this little hotel built in Traditional way on the water and booked again to stay longer this time. It never fail to make us fall in love with this hotel more. This fantastic is surrounded by beautiful breath taking scenery of the Inle lake and its mountains. The individual huts built for guests are very beautiful traditional design and it moves and sway gently when waves came to lake shore and move the water underneath. All rooms are equipped with clean bed, bath room and toilet, all necessary furnitures and own private balcony to enjoy the view of the lake and mountains. Staffs are extremely friendly and attentive. I have read some guests moan about minor insignificant details. In my opinion those who moan about this hotel are generally unhappy moanee who has no positive outlook and selfish self centre individuals who only know to indulge themselves without care for other especially the locals who are trying their best to show hospitality. For us, we will never go to any hotels in Inle except Paradise Resort which lives up to its name. "

More about Inle Lake

Discovering the Charm of Inle Lake: Fun Facts and Tips

Inle Lake is a freshwater lake located in the heart of Myanmar. It is the second-largest lake in the country and is known for its unique ecosystem and traditional floating villages. The lake is home to over 200 species of birds, including several endangered species. Inle Lake is also known for its floating gardens, which are built on top of the water and used for growing vegetables and flowers. One of the most unique features of Inle Lake is the traditional leg-rowing technique used by the local fishermen. Instead of using their hands to row the boat, the fishermen stand on one leg and wrap the other leg around the oar, using it to propel the boat forward. This technique allows them to navigate the shallow waters of the lake with ease. If you're planning a trip to Inle Lake, be sure to bring a camera. The lake and its surrounding hills offer stunning views and photo opportunities. You can also visit the nearby Indein village, which is home to hundreds of ancient pagodas and temples.
