Not too far from the banks of Inle lake, completely immersed in the countryside of Nyaung Shwe, is waiting to host you a nice local family. Around six months ago, they decided to open the doors of their house and welcome the tourists that would like to experience the real Inthar traditional Lifestyle.
First of all, you should have one of your meals, lunch or dinner, at the lodge. We found the food that we tried simply delicious and so tasteful, as also was the breakfast, which is included. Of course all of them are home-made preparations following Myanmar recipes. But the best is that most of the ingredients used are 100% organic and natural, since they collect them directly from their vegetables garden. Quite noticeable considering that covers most of the property’s soil! And there you will see the staff working on it during the day, and picking up vegetables to cook for the next meal.
In the middle of the garden, the owner projected and constructed the rooms where you will stay. They are located in a wooden house, built in line with the Inthar traditional style. A thing that we liked a lot is that there are only five rooms, so even is full booked, the place will conserve its peaceful and family environment.
The rooms are nice decorated and taken care of until the last detail. All of them are big, with en-suite bathroom, where the water is warmed up by solar panels. They also have balcony from where you can have a nice view on the mountains or to the garden. A little detail that we appreciated was the complementary mosquitos spray available in the room and in the dinning area, definitely needed.
The staff working there may not speak a perfect English, but are so attentive and will help you with anything you need with a big smile. On the other side, if you have the chance you should exchange few words with the owner, Kyaw Swar, who speaks an amazing English. We really appreciated our conversations with him about the lake, the country and its history.
