Activity Holidays accommodation across Burma
Malikha Lodge (Putao)
The beautiful Malikha Lodge, perched high above the Nam Lang River, provides a luxurious base from which to explore the mountains and rice terraces of remote Northern Kachin State. The focal point of Malikha Lodge is the main lodge, where guests come to gather around two blazing log fires for drinks, dining or just pure relaxation. Traditional style bungalows have been carefully placed within the resort's manicured lawns and exotic gardens.
Hti Ne Homestay (Inle Lake)
The Homestay programme at Hti Ne has been recently established by a local Community Involved Tourism (CIT) group. The Pa'O region was one of the first communities to be granted an overnight B&B license, which means it is now possible for travellers to stay in simple, yet extremely authentic Pa'O style lodging. The homestay facilities are fairly basic and you will be staying with a welcoming host family in their home, you will have a private room with a Western-style toilet and cold water shower. Your hosts don't speak a great deal of English but are eager to communicate with the help of books and hand gestures, and of course your guide is around too.
Mountain Top Guesthouse (Golden Rock)
Perched on the top of the Kyaiktyo mountain, the Mountain Top is the best of the very limited range of accommodation options available at the Golden Rock. Rooms are simple but acceptable, with panoramic views over the mountainous scenery beyond. Expectations should be managed in terms of the quality of meals, but this is the best in town and for a single night is a perfectly tolerable option.
Kengtung Princess Hotel (Kengtung)
The Princess Hotel offers clean, comfortable guest rooms in the centre of Kengtung. Equipped with a generator to counter the intermittent mains power supply, and offering cable television and air-conditioning, the Princess' facilities are some of the best in town. The staff are extremely friendly and the restaurant serves an extensive menu of Burmese and international cuisines.
Burma Boating (Myeik Archipelago)
The small fleet of elegant yachts owned and operated by the Burma Boating company offers a unique opportunity to explore the beautiful and as yet largely undeveloped Mergui Archipelago is considerable style and comfort. Scheduled itineraries of 3, 5 or 6 night operate throughout the sailing season from October to May, or private charters can be arranged with personalised itineraries arranged to suit your available time and interests. This is a spectacular way to explore one of Asia's most incredible gems.
