        This place is charming and the staff couldn’t be nicer ”

        I didn’t know what to expect and it certainly exceeded my expectations. The staff are the most friendly I’ve come across during my 3 week travels in Myanmar. Their cheeks must ache through smiling and they are attentive to your every need. English speaking also so no language barriers. They arranged a wonderful tour of the lake, and a pick up and drop off from the airport. Sure you’ll hear some traffic and the sounds of the boats during the daytime. This is to be expected when staying on the lake. It’s well worth it, and earplugs did the trick. I slept well and comfortably during my 3 day stay. The suite is impressive and large. The bed super comfy and large. I couldn’t recommend this place highly enough. Thank you Viewpoint Ecolodge

        My girlfriend and I stayed here after our week at Inle Lake. The place was clean, quiet and cool. There was a breakfast included and the service was excellent. The front desk helped us get a taxi to the Aythaya winery (two thumbs up) and the airport and took care of checking our return tickets etc. We loved the location away from the traffic but close enough to walk around the town and try out different restaurants/bars. (Our favorite was Chilax). We used the spa onsite for nails and massage and they were fabulous and reasonably priced. We would both recommend this place.

        gorgeous eco-lodge”

        Got a great deal in low/rainy season. Compliments to the hotel & staff for the extra touch of hospitality, e.g. hot coffee and fresh croissant upon arrival while we waited for our room (we arrived early from the overnight bus), tuk tuk transfer to the museum, 100% organic Shan traditional shampoo and skincare to try... Tip: A meal at the hotel restaurant. Lin Htett restaurant next to the market is also good. Support local culture by going for the Myanmar traditional puppet show (daily at 7pm and 8:30pm). Skip buying silver during the boat tour, opt for the night market close to the hotel with a few souvenir stalls - limited selection but far more reasonable (must bargain!).

        Nice hotel, I like the eco-theme and the rooms were good. The food in the resturant was very good, unfortunatley the breakfast didn’t live up to that an was quite bland. However the drinks from the bar were sublime, good job there.

        Looks nice but noisy”

        Viewpoint ecolodge looks good but it’s very noisy. We could hear the guests in the room next door. The boats and traffic start early in the morning and whilst we loved watching the ducks they too start quacking early. We didn’t get one good nights sleep in our 3 night stay. Our tv did not work for the whole stay. We asked every day to get it fixed but they never did. No apology was made or offer to change room. Breakfast is a large tray brought to your table with small cup,of fruit, yoghurt and other foods plus a bread basket. Such a waste of food and would be much better to choose for yourself. No fridge so all drinks in the mini bar are warm. At least there is a mini mart over the road with cold drinks for sale. The,location is good for walking into town and going to restaurants but if you want peace and quiet stay at one of the riverside resorts.

        Wonderful place on the water & in town”

        beautiful, comfortable, gourmet class

        Viewpoint is a beautiful hotel, aesthetically and comfort-wise. Made from natural materials and fitting in perfectly with the local environment, each lodge rests on stilts in the hotel's lake, replete with fish, ducks, geese and fire flies at night. Viewpoint's restaurant is one of the best in town, breakfast is amazing and magnificently presented on your table (not germ-filled buffet). Right on the main canal, you can go on a lake boat from the hotel's own jetty, plus walk to the range of cute and fine-dining restaurants, the market, spas, cafes, etc. in town. Red Mountain winery is also only a $8 tuk-tuk/auto rickshaw away, with panoramic views of the valley and lake and surprisingly (given you're in Myanmar) good wines. Overall, by far the best place to stay in Nyaung Shwe (Inle Lake's main access town)

        DON'T STAY ANYWHERE ELSE AT INLE LAKE”

        Hotel reviews are by definition always very subjective depending on the traveller, but this fabulous boutique eco-hotel ticked every box in our opinion. It was simply idyllic - 20 bungalows on stilts set in a small man-made lake overlooking rice paddies. The location was perfect, being in town instead of on Inle Lake itself (as that restricts one's activities). We stayed in Room 306 and it was perfect in every way. The large balcony overlooked the lake - wonderful for sipping a glass of wine or two in the evening as you watch the sun slowly sink and the sky turn pink. The bedroom was separate to the lounge area and there was so much room! The bungalows are traditionally Shan, built using local products and local labour. The water is treated and is quite safe to drink from the tap, although complimentary bottled water is also provided if one prefers. The restaurant is amazing and the food absolutely delicious. Breakfasts are also superb and served in a most delightful and unique manner. The staff were, without exception, charming and the manager, Arno di Biase, an absolute credit to his organisation. I don't think we have stayed anywhere in the world as peaceful and lovely as this hotel. Forget the large, flash Hiltons and Sheratons. They don't come close to the charm and location of these wonderful bungalows. If it was possible to do so, I'd give the ViewPoint 15 out of 10!!

        One of the best in Inle Lake”

        Attentive staff, central location and clean rooms

        I really enjoyed staying at ViewPoint - I reckon it's one of the best, if not the best place to stay at Inle Lake. It's just across the bridge from Nwaung Shwe which makes it really convenient to grab food or drinks at any time of the day. For the price we paid, this was a great deal! Breakfast was great (it's more western than local, and it isn't a buffet spread, but rather it's served on a platter to your table), although I'm not sure if I would get tired of the same breakfast spread after our two night stay. Would be good if there was wifi in the rooms (currently limited to lobby)

        Nice stay”

        Location, Rooms

        Our stay at the ViewPoint Lodge got off to a rocky start. We made reservations for a car pickup at the airport and arrived with no car to be had. With this bad taste in our mouth we reluctantly took a taxi to the Viewpoint and on arrival asked and wondered what happened to our reservation. Thankfully, the hotel did their best to make-up for their error by promising hotel to airport transfer on our flight out of Inle Lake at their expense. The rooms were wonderful and the surrounding "city centre" was just a few blocks away. It can be a bit noisy in the morning, but I think it's just because the people get up early every morning to do things and travellers might be used to sleeping in a bit. The canals that feed into Inle Lake are right next door to the hotel, so the hustle and bustle of boats nearby are usually the source of the noise, but that is to be expected most everywhere I assume. Overall the hotel was wonderful and the breakfast included was lovely as well. Dinner was great too, but it was more fun to venture out to the local eateries than stay in every night to eat. Plus, the "shan" food at the hotel wasn't as good as some of the outside restaurants, and just about the same price. It was a lovely stay and I would stay there again.

        Good location, good food

        This is probably the best hotel in Nyaung Shwe. It's location beside Teik Nan bridge along the canal that leads to the lake is perfect for excursions to the lake while still being in town. Rooms were spacious, well-appointed, clean and very nicely decorated as are the surroundings. As close to 5star as you can get at Inle. Dinner at the restaurant was good. The breakfast was the best we had in Myanmar for our trip. Service staff at the restaurant were inattentive and rather slow, but the hotel reception staff were much better and polite. Best to choose a room facing the hills and away from the canal which can be very noisy due to the boats.

        Food, Cleanliness, Location

        Unfortunately we only spent one night in the Viewpoint Hotel - if we had known that it is that good before, we would have stayed longer for sure! The Food was excellent - breakfast was served with a variety of bread, pain au chocolat, muffins, jam, salami, cheese etc. All staff members were very kind and helpful, we even were allowed to keep one of our rooms beyond check-out time so that one of our group members that fell sick was able to stay there. The spacious and very clean rooms themselves were fantastic. We rented two superior rooms and one cottage, built on stilts with a breathtaking view on a little lake with sea roses and ducks. The mini bar was filled with wines of every taste and a complimentary fruit basket was provided on a daily basis. The location was perfect, very close to the red mountain vinyard that we visited by bicycle (also hired from the hotel) and with boat tours to the Inle lake departing right in front of the hotel. All in all an outstanding stay at the Inle lake!!!

        An oasis! (in an unfortunate location)”

        Beautiful layout, Delicious food, Great staff

        Viewpoint Lodge really is a lovely place, honestly. The staff is great, the rooms were quite lovely and the cuisine was wonderful. In the bathroom they have a sample of some local materials to give yourself a mini spa experience - like thanaka, bark sap used for shampoo, etc. Very cool. It was also cool to get the breakfast buffet, because they made sure to give you a sample of a bunch of local dishes and mixed fruit coupled with some European breakfast foods (the owner is French). Very tastefully done. I wasn't in Inle Lake for too long, but I could see that they had a bunch of great, pre organized tours and experienced for everyone from solo travelers to family. The staff was wonderful as well - they helped me to book transport back to Yangon, as well as helped me get a boat to explore utterly stunning area that is Inle Lake. Seriously, this is one of the most stunning places I have ever been to. Unfortunately, the location is just rather noisy. I expect it was at one point very quiet, but over the course of the past few years the roads have really become a lot busier and it interferes with the peaceful atmosphere of the place. But the rooms do have some noise cancellation, so that's okay. The internet is unfortunately limited to the hotel lobby as well, but I think they're in the process of changing that. Was also a treat to receive a local fruit bowl every day! Would come back for sure, just hope they'd do something about the noise.

        Excellent location, Friendly Staff & nice embience”

        Clean, good location and embience of a country town

        The hotel is located conveniently next to the boat terminal. We tooke the boat ride to Inle lake everyday (2 days)just to see the Sunset and Sunrise. The boat ride journey take about 1.5 hours and the price is negotiable with the English speaking boat guy. Beside the good location, the hotel also offer the embience of a countryside. The room is clean. We had our meals everyday at the hotel. The breakfast is excellent however the lunch and dinner is average. We choose from the wok and stew menu, perhaps we should have choosen the European menu as their breakfast is really good. We heard that the boss is a French that explain the high standard of the cleanliness of the room and the style of the hotel. As the resturant is open concept, flies are seen flying close to our food. My stomach is sensitive but i did not experience any discomfort after taking the food. So i would say the food handling is good. There are other hotels nearby and their price is cheaper than what we pay at ViewPoint. Nevertheless, I feel their room price is reasonable. Oh, they also have a cute dog guarding the entrance. We saw guest playing with the cute dog too.
