Over Inle Resort
Het Inle Resort is gelegen aan het Inle-meer, een van de belangrijkste toeristische attracties van Myanmar. U kunt het resort natuurljik met de auto bereiken, maar wellicht is het leuker de reis per boot af te leggen vanaf het dorp Nyaung Shwe. Het hotel is gebouwd in traditioneel inheemse stijl, met als meest opvallende detail de bijzondere daken. Het Inle Resort kenmerkt zich daarnaast door haar ervaren personeel en een goede service. De aanwezige spa zorgt dat uw verblijf in dit resort een ontspannen ervaring is.

Ten zuidoosten van Mandalay strekt zich het 22 kilometer lange Inle-meer uit. Langs de oevers en op eilandjes in het meer wonen tal van minderheidsvolken. Elke dag is bij het Inle-meer wel ergens een marktdag. Van heinde en verre komen traditioneel geklede mensen uit de omliggende bergen om de fotogenieke markten te bezoeken. Groente en fruit in alle kleuren, pannen en potten in alle maten, gereedschap in alle soorten en soms zelf hele boten wisselen van eigenaar. De talrijke dorpen met hun lokale pagodes zijn het best per boot te bezoeken. Het maken van een boottocht over het Inle-meer is dan ook een ‘must do’. U vaart langs tal van drijvende tuinen en dorpen en maakt kennis met de wel zeer bijzondere ‘beenroei-techniek’ van de lokale vissers, die niet met de armen, maar staand in de boot met hun benen roeien.
The hotel overall is not bad, we were roomed in the newly built apartment blocks as you approach the back of the hotel. The rooms are pretty comfortable and we had a view over the countryside and mountains. The grounds to the hotel are lovely and we liked the big banqueting hall which was utilised for evening meals, food was pretty good we thought but rather expensive and so is the drink. You have to suck the prices up because there is nowhere else in the vicinity to walk to during the evenings. The new pool area is very nice and pleasant and worthy of mention. Our biggest disappointment was the sunset cocktails overlooking the lake. The bar was staffed by a couple of youngsters who werenâ€™t particularly pro- active in ensuring people had drinks, it took an eternity for drinks to arrive, no mint for the mojitos?etc. No reduction on cocktail prices or happy hour at sunset and the most uncomfortable wooden contraptions ever invented to sit on. It just wasnâ€™t a very good environment to relax, consequently we visited just once and kept our money in our pockets. I think the manager does have to be more pro- active and realise that the Customer is king and maybe help a little bit with pricing policy and things like inventing a favourable â€˜Hapoy Hourâ€™ for guests.
"Reort needs better management"
We stayed here for a few nights in January and were generally disappointed with the resort. On the whole the staff were polite and helpful, but we did have a couple of issues. One was that they refused to stock soft drinks in our mini bar even though they were among the items listed, saying that if we wanted them we could order from the bar or room service. The other was that we were expected to eat our breakfasts outside in the cold until I outrightly refused and took my food into their dining room. Other customers then followed us out of the cold. Staff generally were standing around chatting and playing which created the impression they didn't know what, or had nothing to do. The rooms were lovely, with huge open spaces and enormous bathrooms, and the grounds were well tended. The overall appearance of the site was that it could do with a refurbish. The hotel seemed to need the input of a pro-active manager. We were there at the end of January, but they still had Christmas decorations up.
We arrived at the resort via boat and we thought wow, this looks like a piece of heaven. The room looked incredible and we had so much space. At first glance we were excited and didn't think we would ever want to leave. Unfortunately that feeling left rather promptly. While every effort has been made to make the place look amazing it is rather a let down that the furniture is not as comfortable as it is to look at. My advice to any traveller staying here is to fill up at lunch time while out at excursions. As much as the menu is written in french and lulls you into a false sense of security thinking this is gonna be amazing. The food is woeful. The restaurant is an oversized hall that echoes and doesn't have any atmosphere. Back to the food, I ordered the seabass believing that it was going to be amazing considering the location by the lake and the abundance of fishermen etc. How wrong I was. I was served something that looked like it had been cooked a week ago and was left sitting under a heatlamp for the rest of the week. I sent it back as it was totally inedible and the staff said they would bring another. I was then served another piece from the same week old stock which was promptly sent back again. I was then offered a menu but declined to order anything else and went hungry for the evening. I call it a gilded prison as it looks beautiful but you can't leave as there is nothing else in the vicinity other than the ravaging mosquitoes at night time. So in a nutshell, looks great, uncomfortable, mosquitoes everywhere, food awful, lacks atmosphere and nothing to recommend. Oh and watch the taps, I could have made a coffee from the hot water coming from the tap and scalded myself washing my hands.
"Spring for a room on the water with a sunset view."
Our tour company had booked us in a "deluxe" room, which looked out onto a row of rooms across the path and could have been anywhere in the world. We figured that, if we were staying at a hotel on the lake, we should be enjoying its beauty from our room, so we paid (an additional $65/night) to upgrade.. While the room itself was a bit dated, it was charming and comfortable and we enjoyed sitting on our deck watching the sunset. Staff was ok but a bit inconsistent and inefficient and didn't speak or understand English especially well; they could be trained to be more professional. Breakfast and food in the dining room was acceptable but nothing special. Internet was slow but worked. The location on the north end of the lake is good and it was a nice place to spend three days.
"Food poisoning and bad service.."
First the bad. On my last day at the resort, I ate only at the resort and later that evening developed vomiting and some diarrhea. As a physician, I am certain that I had a toxin type food poisoning and the timing made it right that my late lunch at the resort caused it. When I checked out the next day I asked to speak to a manager to inform him to look into the restaurant practices so that they could remedy it. I was told that I likely was just sensitive to spicy foods and that it couldn't be food poisoning because no one else was sick. I thought this was presumptuous and incorrect and I got angry and did not want to pay for this meal but they demanded that I do, and then returned several of my US dollars because they did not meet their scrutiny (I never had this happen in my other 2 weeks in the country). I was appalled by this customer service. Before this, I was enjoying my stay even though the resort is a bit strange- they try to be luxurious but have curtains that are so thin that the outside lights lit up my room. They gave me water bottles that were impossible even for the staff to open. I also use handrails and would get dried paint all over my hands when I used them. I showed the staff and they just looked puzzled. I stayed in the regular double bed building- I was happy with the room though I would find it annoying if I was with my husband and the beds had such a gap. This building had the advantage of being quiet, but the walk to it was really far- it got really annoying when I wanted to sit and enjoy the lake, especially because the path is very uneven and hard on the knees (Like walking on cobblestone)- at night the path was not very well lit. I actually enjoyed the food a lot- I had a variety of their curries and Shan noodles. It was the prawn curry that I got sick with. The breakfast had a great variety, staff was generally very nice and greeted everyone. I liked the location on the lake- even though it is far from the lake siteseeing, it has the option of being reached by car so you could do other things. Overall, I would not recommend the place until their customer service and little things were improved. I understand that food poisoning can happen anywhere, but you have to own up to it!
