Situated on the banks of Hteengarhlyar Lake on the edge of Loikaw town, this small family owned boutique accommodation only has twelve rooms. Each room has been lovingly designed, and beautifully finished with local hand woven fabrics, tribal photography, teak panelled floors and wooden furniture. You will not find TV's in the rooms but you will find shelves full of book and you'll be able to watch the sunset over the lake from your balcony or the lodge's terrace.
The onsite restaurants uses fresh, locally grown ingredients and traditional cooking methods to serve up delicious dishes. The menu is decided upon daily, dependent on what available ingredients there are at the morning market, so each meal will be different!
