Amara Mountain Resort

​The Amara Mountain Resort has a stunning location in a shady and quiet corner of Kalaw, close to the town centre and airport. A quaint colonial cottage dating from the early 1900s, the property is the best in town, and certainly the most charming.

The Amara Mountain Resort has a stunning location in a shady and quiet corner of Kalaw, close to the town centre and airport. A quaint colonial cottage dating from the early 1900s, the property is the best in town, and certainly the most charming. Set on a small hill surrounded by evergreen forests, amidst traditional English-style country gardens, an organic vegetable patch and fruit orchards, it feels more like a much-loved English home than a hotel.

The eleven rooms are spread over two cottages with wooden floors and open fireplaces. The hotel has an onsite bakery, a chalet style restaurant and a spa and sauna – the perfect place to retreat after trekking in the surrounding area.

Why we like it

  • A former hill station’s colonial residence and restored to modern-day standards
  • Unobstructed views of the mesmerising Shan Mountain Range
  • A mountain resort experience
  • Spacious and colourful bedrooms with Burmese flair
