Loikaw Lodge by the Lake (Loikaw)
This small beautifully crafted lodge with local touches is undoubtedly the best option in Loikaw.
Only opened in late 2016 the Loikaw lodge is the nicest accommodation option in this area of Kahya state. Situated on the banks of Hteengarhlyar Lake on the edge of Loikaw town, this small family owned boutique accommodation only has twelve rooms. Each room has been lovingly designed, and beautifully finished with local hand woven fabrics, tribal photography, teak panelled floors and wooden furniture. You will not find TV's in the rooms but you will find shelves full of book and you'll be able to watch the sunset over the lake from your balcony or the lodge's terrace.
The onsite restaurants uses fresh, locally grown ingredients and traditional cooking methods to serve up delicious dishes. The menu is decided upon daily, dependent on what available ingredients there are at the morning market, so each meal will be different!
The cosy atmosphere of this lodge makes it a wonderful base for exploring the Kayah state.

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.
