Activity Holidays accommodation across Myanmar
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.
Pine Hill Resort (Kalaw)
The Pine Hill Resort offers chalet style accommodation up on the hill above Kalaw.
The resort has a slightly functional feel, but is perfectly adequate for those looking for a comfortable yet good value hotel here in Kalaw.
Aye village Homestay (Aye)
The homestays in the villages of Aye and Lote Pe village in Chin State offer a unique opportunity to get to know the local community in person. Facilities are simple but adequate for the more adventurous clients - guests are provided with a sleeping mat and mosquito net for sleeping on the wooden floor, with a cold shower wash basin and squat toilet. Meals are prepared by the host family and taken together.
Win Unity Hotel (Monywa)
Situated near the Kan-Thar-Yar Lake within landscaped gardens, the Win Unity Hotel offers a comfortable stay when in Monywa.

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.
