It's not the most luxurious place and you're not going for the food which is average, but the views and the tranquility of the place makes it one of the best and most memorable experiences. I stayed for two nights and never left the lake oasis -- there was no reason to do it because all I wanted to do...

Stunning hotel on stilts in the middle of the lake, with incredible views, swimming pool, bar and restaurant. The rooms are clean and spacious, with balconies that have views over the lake. It's about an hour by boat from the town where the taxi drops you off, but once you're there it's a great location for boat trips around the...

Lovely to hear the water lapping underneath the comfortable and roomy cabin with great views of the passing cavalcade of boats (fortunately largely unheard during the night). Cabins were distinctively traditional but had all amenities. Helpful staff although the wifi was distinctly dodgy.

We stayed here for 2 nights in one of 2 suites. Lonely Planet says the hotel has been open since 1996 and you can see it is starting to age, however, It was very clean. The decor in the suite is all timber so you feel like you a stay in a genuine teak house with a squeaky floor. Our...

Shwe Inn Tha Floating Resort @ Inle Lake December 05 to 09, 2016 This was our second visit to this lovely floating resort build on stilts.. we stayed here in 2013 as well. We love this resort, even so it is not ultra modern, it’s location , location, location. As I understand from our Tour Guide many tourists stay in...

You will not desire nothing more once you'll approach this paradise. Kindness and hospitality are the key words of this place. I have never experienced a journey like the one we spent in the Shwe Inn Tha Floating Resort.

From the moment you step on the deck at The Floating Resort, you feel like you are on a movie set. We traveled by canoe to Shwe Inn Tha one evening. The night sky was impressive and added to our experience. When you arrive at the inn, you are warmly greeted and given a glass of fresh delicious fruit juice....

This hotel is in a superb location, close to the market and has the most fantastic sunset view.restaurant was delightful and very friendly staff.we suggested it to all the couples we met! Must GO!! The rooms have about door shower which was a great touch. The lake can be noise at times but this shouldn't stop you from staying here

Nice for a night or two of luxury at Inle lake. Location is good, center to many places on the lake. Instead of taking a transfer to the hotel and then a day trip on the lake, you can combine the two and ask your boat to drop your luggage there during the day. Nice large rooms and bathrooms. Good...

From its close proximity to the villages along the edges of the lake and by extension, noteworthy places like the floating markets, pagodas and monasteries, you get an authentic pulse -- but of course from within the confines of Western comforts -- to Inle life. A note on the dressers in the rooms warns of the noise from passing boats...
