Salay River View Inn

Sale |

Venture 90 minutes south of Bagan and you come to the Salay River View Inn, a one-of-a-kind gem on the banks of the Irrawaddy River. The inn is utterly charming, offering that unique and authentic welcome you get from a genuinely family-run property, and as its name suggests, it sits in a prime location, with superb river views and lush gardens.

There are just 14 guest rooms at Salay River View Inn, all decorated with pale walls, splashes of red, and handsome wooden furniture. Local craftsmanship is represented in the beautiful carved wooden fretwork panels and mirror frames. All rooms have their own private outdoor seating area, on the ground floor terrace or the balcony above – an idyllic place to relax and listen to the river flowing by.

You will eat well here too, with amazing home-cooked Myanmar cuisine served, made using only local ingredients sourced from Sale market or grown in their own garden. Tables are dotted throughout the lovely garden and overlooking the river, with bright red umbrellas for shade.

We Say

A complete one-off that’s welcoming, charming and great value, this family-run boutique inn sits amongst lush gardens directly on the Irrawaddy River.
