There are a number of best places to stay in Tharrawaddy. Some are more budget friendly, while others are a little more luxurious.
You can find great hotels in downtown Yangon, close to colonial buildings and street food corners. Or you could stay in Northern Yangon near Shwedagon Pagoda and Kandawgyi Lake.
1. Melia Yangon
If you’re looking for a luxury retreat while in Tharrawaddy, look no further than Melia Yangon. This top-rated property features a sauna, an outdoor pool and a Jacuzzi for guests to enjoy. It’s also well-equipped to accommodate business travellers, with meeting facilities and a concierge on hand.
This 5-star hotel is situated in Bahan, just a short drive from Myanmar Plaza. Those staying at the hotel can unwind with a drink in one of the two bars/lounges. There’s also free parking on site for those travelling with a car.
Melia Yangon offers a wide variety of recreational facilities, such as a fitness center and a private level lounge. For a relaxing time, take a dip in the swimming pool or have a drink at the bar. A massage, hair salon and a spa are just some of the available options for guests wanting to pamper themselves.
Melia Yangon is within a short walk of Chaukhtatgyi Paya (Chak Htat Gyi Buddha), making it easy to explore the area. It is also just a brief drive from Shwedagon Pagoda.
2. Sofitel Inle Lake Myat Min
Located on the eastern shores of Inle Lake, this boutique luxury resort blends French-style and authentic Burmese heritage with stunning lake views. Each of the 101 suites and rooms is designed in a way that evokes and respects traditional villages yet is modern and encapsulates the latest technologies without interrupting a natural sense of flow.
The property itself is beautifully designed and feels intimate and exclusive despite being one of the largest 5-star hotels in Inle Lake. The restaurant and pool areas are beautifully positioned to capture the sunsets over the lake, making for some truly memorable evenings. The menus at the Pavilion Restaurant and the Lobby Bar offer an amazing selection of international and Burmese cuisine, with both featuring some interesting fusion dishes too.
There are plenty of great activities to keep you busy during your stay, but the highlight for me was being able to take a boat tour around the lake and visit some of the small villages that are scattered along the banks of the Inle Lake. The hotel arranges a wonderful tour (with bicycle tours available too), which gives you a glimpse into a Myanmar less discovered and lets you witness local craft-making from silver jewellery to lotus cloth-weaving to Burmese cigarette rolling.
Whether it’s relaxing at the hotel pools, taking in the lake view or exploring the local villages, you are guaranteed to leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated from your time here. The staff are incredibly friendly and attentive too, making this one of the best places to stay in Inle Lake.
