Pine Hill Resort opened its doors already 20 years ago in a small town in the south of the Shan state, Kalaw. Nowadays is a big property with many rooms available, deployed among three hectares of land in the middle of the mountains.
Leaving aside its amazing location, without doubts the best part of all the resort would be the swimming pool, even more enjoyable during winter time, since the water is warmed up. Nothing better than a hot bath after all the day trekking around. On the other hand, you can also work out in the gym or spend some quality time at the spa where there is a sauna and a jacuzzi. Unluckily, we couldn’t use the last one because during our stay it was closed.
To get downtown or to visit the attractions nearby as Hnee Pagoda or the Buddha cave, at the resort there are available bicycles for you to go around. If you are interested in trekking, as most of the tourists passing by the city are, at the hotel they can offer you different excursions that can last half day, one or two days, in order to visit the tribe villages in the surrounding area or to reach Inle lake walking.
In the morning the breakfast was not that special, because even if it was quite rich we didn’t find it as amazing as the rest of the resort. On the other side, we considered that the room was awesome. We were in the deluxe one and it was so spacious and bright, with any kind of amenities that we could need for our stay. And also with a huge window with views to the garden and the mountains behind.
Definitely we recommend Pine Hill Resort for a relaxing stay in the beautiful mountains of Shan state.
