Set a little out of the way on Anawyahta Road, but a 10-minute walk from the market, this truly is a little Oasis.
Made up of a narrow block running back off the road, Oasis has a frangipani studded lawn garden on one side and superior and deluxe rooms on the other. At the rear of the block is a moderately sized swimming pool that had about a week to go to completion when we visited in June 2013. Rooms are immaculate and easily the most sparkling we saw in Nyaung U; they're so new we could still smell the paint, so this is a great option for those with the right budget. Rooms are very well sized with all the standard amenities, including flatscreen TV, WiFi, chilled air-con, rain showers and crisp linen over semi-firm beds. The floors are perhaps a little bouncy, but that's about it in the negative column. Deluxe rooms are larger, better appointed and closer to the pool. Overall, if this fits your budget, and you don't mind the location, look no further. Very friendly staff.
