Amara is for sure the best hotel in Kalaw! Also after several visits we can only confirm this. It is situated on a small hill and you can reach easily in a short 15 min walk the city center.

We had a wonderful time at this hotel, surrounded by beautiful lush gardens, nestled in the hillside. The service is excellent, the rooms are charming and the dining room, overlooking the trees, is very special. Worth the trip. Very romantic.

We arrived in Kalaw and our guide took us to visit the railway station, a dilapidated colonial mansion and the local RC church (visit these or similar sites if you can).

The hotel itself is quite nice... very English...rooms are quaint and a good size. The ambiance is pleasant and a little old fashioned. Beds are comfortable, with mosquito netting, and electronic bug zapper comes with the room. Bathrooms are reasonable, a little faded, but clean and the bath is really nice to soak in after the heat of the day.... More
