A memorable immersion in the myanmar way of life
ViewPoint Eco-Lodge sits on the edge of the canal leading to the magnificent Inle Lake in the colorful Southern Shan State village of Nyaung Shwe.
The ViewPoint reflects the beauty of its name. The scenic surroundings include the canal leading to the lake on one side and rice paddies on the other, overlooking the highest mountains in the region. The Lodge is walking distance to the village of Nyaung Shwe, and is a 40-minute drive from Heho Airport and aslo 18-hole golf course.
20 luxurious Cottage Suites are built in the traditional Shan way. All are easily affordable without compromising comfort, amenities or the unique atmosphere of the Lodge.
All Cottage Suites are built on pilings on the ViewPoint lake using traditional Shan ecofriendly construction. The Lodge and Cottages are built with local limestone, mud and rice straw, and reinforced with wooden beams. No concrete is used. Only paints made from laterite mud and natural wax decorate the Lodge. Using traditional materials does not mean compromising modern comforts.
All suites have modern bathrooms and are equipped with wireless internet, telephone, LCD TV, unlimited movies and music.
Suites are both thermal and sound insulated, and windows use doubleinsulated glass, all to ensure our guests’ comfort. The Lodge blends the best of the Shan traditions and the needs of modern travelers.
ViewPoint is the only lodge in the Shan region boasting two restaurants that blend excellent local and continental cuisine and wines, room service, together with Swiss management.
The ViewPoint Restaurant is the best local restaurant in Myanmar according to the Routard Guide and Lonely Planet Travel Guide books. In our second restaurant, The Shan, you can dine while enjoying an amazing view of the canal, rice paddies and the highest mountains in the Inle region. The food and service are equal to the beautiful and exotic surroundings.
