Where to stay

Kalaw's accommodations cater to adventurers and those wishing to enjoy something a little more sedentary and relaxing. You'll find some particularly well appointed and well-positioned resorts in old colonial buildings rich in character. Alongside these, simple guesthouses and hostels with multi-bed dorms provide a good option for those wanting to simply rest up before heading out on one of the multi-day hikes to Inle Lake or Pindaya.
