Activity Holidays accommodation across Burma
Mountain Oasis Guesthouse (Kanpetlet)
Located just outside Kanpetlet, the main town in southern Chin State, Mountain Oasis is a collection of nine comfortable bungalows. The Chin-inspired rooms are basic with wood furnishings, en-suite bathrooms and spacious porches. The restaurant serves Burmese, Chinese and European food.
Pindaya Inle Inn (Pindaya)
Set amongst idyllic gardens, Inle Inn is a welcoming haven in charming Pindaya. The motel style unites feature elements of local design while incorporating modern facilities and the friendly staff ensure that guests feel welcomed after a day of sightseeing. Close to Pindaya's famous Buddhist caves and within walking distance of the town centre, Inle Inn is our favourite choice in town.
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.
Amara Mountain Resort (Kalaw)
Housed in a former colonial residence, the Amara Mountain Resort is Kalaw's most welcoming accommodation. The Amara Mountain Resort is surrounded by gardens overlooking the Shan Mountains and features just four well-appointed double rooms each with their own fireplace. The homely atmosphere, welcoming staff and pleasant rooms combine to create a comfortable, relaxing stay in the Kalaw.
Lashio Motel (Lashio)
Set your expectations at the right level and you'll be perfectly content with a night at the Lashio Motel. There's nothing flashy here, but if you want a clean and comfortable spot to sleep for the night, with a decent breakfast to get you started in the morning you won't be disappointed.
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.
