Info : Kandawgyi Hill Resort
Kandawgyi Hill Resort is simple and charming. Perched at the entrance to the National Kandawgyi Botanical Gardens, it greets you with lovely cottages, perfectly maintained manicured gardens, a cool breeze and lovely views over the rolling hills. Experience colonial-style hospitality at its finest in Pyin Oo Lwin.
This area is lovely, cool, verdant and popular with nature enthusiasts and those seeking a quiet retreat from the city below. The Botanical Gardens next door are lush and expansive, and there are tranquil orange plantations close by – the resort is more than happy to organise a picnic or even a horse and cart. The famous Railway Bridge at Goak Hteik is a spectacular day trip and if you’d rather just relax on the grounds at Kandawgyi Hill Resort, you can order a sundowner at the bar or admire the beautiful gardens.
The colonial style bungalows are cute and spacious, though not always full of natural light. The location is not ideal if you want to alternative dining options to the hotel’s restaurant. Still, the beds are comfortable, the facilities are decent and the overall vibe is pleasant and welcoming. Come here to enjoy the crisp country air, to take walks around the grounds and to savour a good cup of tea.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.

[Our cruise] was excellent in every way and we had a memorable holiday. Terry our guide made the trip for us. I couldn't recommend [it] more highly, perfect in every way. Loved the informality of it all and the evening cocktails were delicious. Trips ashore clambering up the banks of the Irrawaddy into little villages were quite delightful and locals fascinated by us. Excellent mixed itinerary organised by our guide which took in all aspects of life.
