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.
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.
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.
