A good midrange option
Located a short hop out of town on the Airport Road (some 20 minutes on foot or a 1,000 kyat moto ride), the Private Resort Hotel is a good midrange option in Kengtung.
The property is something a bit different to the other options in town, with the rooms being one-storey chalet style, set in long blocks within a rudimentary garden and an accompanying beer bar. It's not what you'd call lush but an effort has been made and staff can be exceptionally helpful. Rooms are comfortable and come with hot water, air-con, TV, fridge, hot showers and WiFi. Transport and trekking services are available and unusually for Kengtung they even have their own website. While the location may be a slight disadvantage, there are some good restaurants in the area and their rates are really quite good for what you get, making this an all-round recommended option. The main drawback is that with only 26 rooms and being popular with group tours you may struggle with availability in high season.
