Accommodation in Myanmar

During your trip to Myanmar you will stay in a wide range of accommodation that reflects the character of your destination. You’ll experience a variety of styles, from traditional thatched wooden bungalows and colonial-style lodges to modern, boutique resorts and charmingly rustic guesthouses. We use a hand-picked selection of smaller hotels wherever we can, avoiding international chains, to give you a local and authentic experience when it comes to where you stay. As hotels in Myanmar don’t always fit in with European star ratings, we’ve created our own categories so you know what you can expect from your trip.

In Style Accommodation – Category 4

If you want a bit more luxury during your time in Myanmar then our In Style options are the perfect fit. Comfort and location are the most important factors in this category and you have the option to upgrade in most of our destinations within Myanmar. Why not opt to stay in a stilted bamboo cottage that sits in the middle of the magical Inle Lake or a modern, boutique resort set on the golden sands of Ngapali? The choice is all yours! We can also mix and match In Style with our standard accommodation options for you.

Standard Accommodation – Category 3

Small-scale hotels and resorts, local charm and a warm inviting atmosphere are all important in this category. You can expect a mid-range bungalow or hotel/guesthouse, usually air-conditioned. The refreshingly modern hotel in downtown Yangon or the thatched teak bungalow surrounded by lush gardens you’ll stay at in Hsipaw are perfect examples of this accommodation category. Most of our accommodation falls within this category.

Basic Accommodation – Category 1

In this category you really will be going back to basics! If you are heading into the countryside on our Hiking through Emerald Hills trip then you will be staying in a small local village along the way. The stilted hut is quite basic with limited facilities and a shared bathroom. However, spending time in this local village gives you a real insight into the lifestyle of the local Burmese people and is a truly authentic, meaningful experience.
