Amara Mountain Resort

Kalaw | First Class

On first glance you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d jumped continent, to a little Northern European village in the woods. The Amara Mountain Resort is a cluster of beautiful timber-frame buildings, with 10 ample rooms set around a welcoming central lobby and restaurant, with a swimming pool and spa.

Originally built in 1909 and carefully restored in 2002, each room is furnished using local wood, with airy neutral decor, comfy four-poster beds and lovely open fireplaces.
Surrounded by pine forests, with a pleasantly cool climate, the Amara is a wonderful place to take a breather from the high temperatures elsewhere in Myanmar. You can relax with a massage at its lovely Asian spa, enjoy local and European cuisine at its excellent restaurant, which sources ingredients fromt the Amara’s own vegetable garden, and wander on a guided walk through the nearby National Park, initiated and funded, rather splendidly, by the Amara’s own financial backers.

We Say
Unpack, unwind and let the Shan State get into your soul.
