Accessible by boat, this hotel is on stilts on Inle Lake! We had a lovely room with a balcony overlooking the water where we sat in the evening and had a glass of wine and watched to sunset. The hotel also had a swimming pool and poolside bar, which we didn't try since it was still chilly. Great place!

All OK but from 19:00 to 07:00 we are in Gail no lights enough no boats. During day you have to use boat which not cheap and sail one hour to town in poor boat under rain so for young Couples this hotel not fit at all.

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...

Stunning hotel on stilts in the middle of the lake, with incredible views, swimming pool, bar and restaurant. The rooms are clean and spacious, with balconies that have views over the lake. It's about an hour by boat from the town where the taxi drops you off, but once you're there it's a great location for boat trips around the...

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 wifi was distinctly dodgy.

We stayed here for 2 nights in one of 2 suites. Lonely Planet says the hotel has been open since 1996 and you can see it is starting to age, however, It was very clean. The decor in the suite is all timber so you feel like you a stay in a genuine teak house with a squeaky floor. Our...

You will not desire nothing more once you'll approach this paradise. Kindness and hospitality are the key words of this place. I have never experienced a journey like the one we spent in the Shwe Inn Tha Floating Resort.

From the moment you step on the deck at The Floating Resort, you feel like you are on a movie set. We traveled by canoe to Shwe Inn Tha one evening. The night sky was impressive and added to our experience. When you arrive at the inn, you are warmly greeted and given a glass of fresh delicious fruit juice....
