Kalaw Heritage Hotel

Kalaw | First Class

High in the mountains of eastern Myanmar, the Kalaw Heritage Hotel is the perfect base for exploring this fascinating region, combining classic elegance with efficient service and up-to-date facilities. Making the most of the hotel’s idyllic location, the terrace has panoramic views across the heritage railway in the valley to the densely-forested hillside beyond.

Every building has been carefully restored, preserving the colonial facade while upgrading the interior to create a modern space. The rooms are bright and minimalist; white walls, delicate linens and pale woods reflect the light which floods through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Clean angles and sharp lines bring out the calming neutrality of contemporary hotel chic, while details such as woven chairs and traditional craft pieces bring in authentic Myanmar style. Pops of muted green mirror the leafy tones of the forest canopy below.

The hotel is conveniently located for discovering many of the surrounding sights, such as the nearby caves and shrines, Inle Lake, or the bustling markets and colonial architecture of Kalaw. Tours can be organised to places which are further afield, or you can trek to sights in the surrounding hills and be back in time for lunch.

Organic produce from the hotel’s garden are used to create an array of dishes with a local flavour in the restaurant, and the Heritage bar is a quiet spot for enjoying a pre-dinner drink. If you prefer, you can dine in private on your balcony as you watch the sun set over the misty slopes.

We Say
Sophisticated style meets calm comfort in this ideally located hillside retreat.
