Riverside @ Hsipaw Resort,
Myanmar, The North East
Info : Riverside @ Hsipaw Resort
This is one of the newer establishments in the Old Hsipaw Shan Village on the Doktawady River’s tranquil eastern bank. Each room faces the river and offers guests fabulous views and a lovely warm atmosphere. You can expect spacious rooms, friendly staff and good cuisine at Riverside @ Hsipaw.
Hsipaw is a prime cycling and trekking destination, well loved for its wonderful lush scenery, waterfalls, rivers, hot springs, tea plantations and fascinating tribal villages. Choose easy or challenging terrain and stay for a half day or several days. There is something for every level of fitness and adventure tolerance. Once you’re back from a day of trekking, relax in the gardens, grab a sundowner at the bar, dine at the restaurant or just take in the river views. Getting here isn’t a hassle: the hotel provides complimentary boat crossings from the other side.
There are 20 rooms in total, and all of them are large (40m2), supremely comfortable, clean and modern with truly luxurious showers and cosy beds. You’ll find modern and functional air-conditioning in all of them.
Keep in mind that your arrival and departure are limited to the ferry, so you can only access the other side of the river between 7am and 10pm. You might also feel a bit isolated, watching the town from the other side of the river. But if you’re looking for tranquillity, a good night’s sleep, friendly staff and good food to complement your trekking, Riverside @ Hsipaw is one of the best choices in the region.

Our Pandaw river cruise was excellent in every way and we had a memorable holiday. Our guide Terry made the trip for us. I couldn't recommend Pandaw more highly, it's been 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 were fascinated by us. Excellent mixed itinerary organised by our guide which took in all aspects of life!
