ViewPoint Lodge is located on the edge of the canal leading to the magnificent Inle Lake in the Southern Shan State village of Nyaung Shwe. 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. The Lodge includes scenic Cottage Suites that are built in the traditional Shan way on stilts on a lake and have the private balcony. ViewPoint is the only lodge in the Shan region boasting two restaurants that blend excellent local and continental cuisine and wines and room service.
The 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.
