View Point Lodge

Nyaung Shwe | Deluxe

Nestled against a peaceful canal on the edge of town, View Point Lodge was established by the same team that set up and still run the the famous 'Le Planteur' Restaurant in Yangon, so there is a real focus on excellent food and drink experiences for every guest, including expert-led cookery lessons, which are held on the roof.

The hotel's location strikes a perfect balance between convenience and tranquility, offering easy access to the town, but beautiful views across paddy fields and towards the nearby hills.

Accommodation consists of 20 stilted wooden cottages, linked by stilted walkways over a pond and built using traditional Shan tribe construction techniques. ViewPoint's philosophy is to create a modern, comfortable environment whilst helping to keep local traditions and skills alive, with all wood responsibly sourced and sustainable natural materials used wherever appropriate - even the paint, which is made from laterite mud and natural wax. Interiors are decorated in a light, simple style with white walls, polished woods and Shan antiques.

View Point's two restaurants serve traditional Shan and Burmese cuisine, accompanied by fantastic views of the surrounding Inle countryside. Guests also have the option to enjoy al fresco dining or tasty picnics off site, relax in Lounge-E - a cosy wine bar that also serves meals from the Le Planteur restaurant - or perhaps enjoy breakfast or dinner on their own private balcony.

We Say
Truly exquisite; View Point ticks so many boxes it’s hard to know where to start. It certainly enhances the option of a few extra days in the Inle region but off the lake.
