Hotel Overview

Sense of place

Located at the heart of Pyin Oo Lwin, a pretty hill town in the Shan Highlands, the hotel is east (and within a two-hour drive) of Mandalay. 

Rooms at Hotel Pyin Oo Lwin

There are 36 traditional pagoda-style bungalows which are spacious and full of features including wood-panelled walls and cosy fireplaces, alongside LCD TVs, mini-bars and air conditioning, with balconies and terraces for enjoying the scenic views over the gardens.

Food & Drink

Wake up to a buffet breakfast, and in the evening, the restaurant offers a variety of international cuisines from East to West. There are numerous fruit farms dotted around Pyin Oo Lwin - the area is known for its fruit and vegetables, and also its milk (and dairy desserts) and its wines. It prides itself on the freshest of ingredients, and there are a number of restaurants in the town too.


Head to the hotel lounge for one a signature martini or for a game of pool with your friends and family. 

Activities at Hotel Pyin Oo Lwin

The botanical gardens nearby are home to thousands of rare trees and flowers, including a prize orchid collection, a walk-in aviary and acres of open parkland full of strutting peacocks. Meanwhile, Pyin Oo Lwin’s high altitude ensures pleasantly cool weather and fresh mountain air, making it a delight to explore. Discover its historic monuments, find out about its British colonial past, and visit markets and flower gardens – see it all leisurely on a carriage ride, and if that gives you a taste for more, venture further afield by trekking or biking, to see lush green landscapes and gushing waterfalls. Back at the hotel, there’s a pool, a fitness centre and pretty gardens to relax in.
