“Stunning location, Impeccable service”​

The hotel is literally marooned at the edge of the lake. The only way in and out is by boat. This gives it a certain air of Fantasy Island which adds to the magic of just being on Lake Inle.


We were greeted by smiling helpful staff with a welcome drink and taken to our room. All the rooms are detached huts on stilts which fan out from a central restaurant and pool area. The rooms are large and comfortable. My only warning would be that it can get VERY cold at night so take lots of warm clothes as you may need extra layers to sleep in. Our room had a stunning view of the lake and mountains and we woke each morning to a beautiful sunrise and the sounds of locals singing a call to prayer. The service at the hotel is impeccable. All the staff were amazingly helpful and made our stay an absolute joy.


Transport to the various attractions around Inle lake is easy and cheap to organize via the hotel. The hotel is very close to the village of Thar Lay which is well worth a visit - you must dine at Mr. Toe's restaurant at least once during your stay to enjoy amazing local lake fish.


On our departure we were each given a hand made personalized bag to take with us which rounded off a perfect stay. Thank you to all the staff at Shwe Inn Tha.

This was our second visit to this lovely floating resort build on stilts, we stayed here in 2013 as well. We love this resort, even so it is not ultra modern, it’s location, location, location. As I understand from our Tour Guide, many tourists stay in the new modern Hotels now built on land, I believe in doing so you loose the true experience of "Inle Lake".​


Here at Shwe Inn Tha you arrive by long tail boat, which is already a unique experience, just imagine cruising on this beautiful lake, enjoying the exceptional scenery, watch the local fishermen doing their job, seeing all the other long tail boat traffic on the lake, for us this alone is terrific.


Once we arrived we were greeted with a warm SMILE by an old friend Ms. Su Mon, Front Office Manager at the resort. This alone is a great beginning. We were assigned to over the Water-Chalet No.304 (just like in Tahiti) a very large room facing the Lake, with sunset views. We had a Queen Size Bed, with clean bed linen, very comfortable, slept well, there is a Mini-Bar, a Coffee maker, there is sitting area, a huge panorama window, in-room safe, no TV as of yet only in the Lobby area, a balcony to enjoy the lake views with a breeze, you have free Wi-Fi, the W/C is in a separate room from the bathroom, clean Bath Towels, a shower/tub combo, a separate vanity with amenities.


The resort alerts you, that there could be noise heard from the outboard motors of the boots or Inle dwellers (INTHAS) recite sermons early morning @ 4:00 AM…. not to worry you get ear plugs too. This never bothered us, this is all part of the cultural experience. Take it all in I say.


The room was always cleaned properly, the staff is courteous and friendly and provides SERVICE with a SMILE… there is a lot of renovation going on to improve the resort. The Breakfast was fine with us too, plenty to choose from a mix of Asian/Western dishes, the dining room staff is attentive. We enjoyed our Thai Dinner each night in the dining room, it was very tasty.


We had several Anaite Massages at the resort and they a great and relaxing as well, and the Masseuses "Than Dav Aung & Shwe" did a terrific job. The charge for one full hour US$25.00, take advantage of it.


We have a very special thank you for "Su Mon" …my wife was not feeling great one day and Su Mon visited her often in our room on that day, even sat by her bedside for long periods of time… we salute her kindness.


Therefore if you are looking for an authentic Inle Lake experience, I highly recommend staying at Shwe Inn Tha Floating Resort, we loved it the second time around and hopefully we can return again.

“Serene, Relaxing”​

Lovely to hear the water lapping underneath the comfortable and roomy cabin with great views of the passing cavalcade of boats (fortunately largely unheard during the night). Cabins were distinctively traditional but had all amenities. Helpful staff although the Wi-Fi was distinctly dodgy.​

"Serenity in the lake"​

What a wonderful and unique hotel in a magnificent and unique place. The Shwe Inn Tha was just great and the owner and staff made it even better. Clean rooms, great food and close to everything on Inlay Lake. The lake and this hotel are gems. Loved it so much I went back twice.​


It's not the most luxurious place and you're not going for the food which is average, but the views and the tranquility of the place makes it one of the best and most memorable experiences. I stayed for two nights and never left the lake oasis  --  there was no reason to do it because all I wanted to do  was  the  relax,  sit  at  the  pool,  read,  and  watch  the  sunset  which  is  the  most  magnificent.  And yes  the  boats  are  loud,  but  that's  really  all  you ever  hear  out  there.  It's  so  serene.  The  boat  ride there  I  saw  the  sun  rising,  fisherman  on  their  boats  and  their  one-legged  paddling,  birds  and  the majestic hills. It's truly paradise. And the rooms are huge, clean and the bed very comfortable. The staff very friendly and nice.
