Inspiring Myanmar – A Little Eco Lodge

A Little Eco Lodge (Tree House)
The Heritage

This 2 are places that are often overlooked by travelers, perhaps due to lack of promotion or just minimal awareness, often travelers traveling to Myanmar seek for a more mainstream, adventurous or fun activities. Knowing how important educating travelers are, I decided to share about these 2 places that has inspired, excites and humbled me during this trip.

‘Responsible business’ is what set A Little Eco Lodge apart from the rest. Caring for the community, the environment as well as Myanmar culture and heritage has drove Kyaw Swar and his wife Mee Mee to recruit their staff from the Inle Lake communities’. And the best part is that a portion of their profits go to community development including health care and education, their way of giving back to community.

Mr. Kyaw Swar sharing his vision and mission.

This traditional style accommodation offers affordable stay in their "eco-style" lodge built from natural sustainably managed materials. Don’t be surprise to find out this eco lodge comes with well equipped spa, traditional or Swedish massage, steam bath or sauna, body scrub and manicure & pedicure. Not only that, guest will be serve local delicacies prepared fresh from their own garden, not only that, they also encourage guest to try their hand in gardening. Outdoor activity such as trekking at the beautiful hill of Loi-Khaw is also available, they can also provide guest with an expert guide to take guest to trek the Pa-O ethnic villages and mountains

The other section that awed me is the beautiful tree house that serves as a café for guest to enjoy the sunset or just chillaxing. The whole structure is made of bamboo and  we were served with home grown strawberry juice (absolutely delicious) aside from the Innthar food, their family recipes. Cozy and homely is the best way to describe this charming tree house café.

For those who loves nature and local surrounding, A Little Eco Lodge is the perfect place for you. The rooms are air conditioned, wifi is available, car park is at abundance and it is located a mere 1.7km away from the scenic Red Mountain Estate Vineyards. Oh yah! It also comes with private bathroom and towels are provided. They even have spa centre and sauna.

3 ways to get to Inle Lake, one is via bus, train and flight. The train stops in Shwe Nyaung, a town is 13 km away from Nyaung Shwe (Inle Lake), as for flight, Heho Airport is 20 km away from the lodge, an hour taxi ride from town.
