Myanmar, Pyin Oo Lwin
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.

Here are some popular holidays including this hotel or we can create a tailor made holiday, crafted for you.
We enjoyed a 3 week trip exploring both the well known places as well as the less developed areas. We also balanced the trip with a variety of walks and activities as well as time for several half day breaks to relax. The Myanmar people are incredibly friendly and welcoming. The colours of the country are outstanding, wonderful dusty landscapes with rice fields and palm trees as well as so many amazing pagodas rich in colour and symbolism. Our best parts were the less well known places but Lake Inle and Bagan are must do places and are still not overrun by tourists. Experience Travel Group tailored a trip for our needs and knew how to do so and suggest appropriate hotels and means of travel.
