Activity Holidays accommodation across Myanmar
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.
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.
Kengtung Princess Hotel (Kengtung)
The Princess Hotel offers clean, comfortable guest rooms in the centre of Kengtung.
