Best overall in Chaung Tha
Shwe Hin Tha Hotel is currently the best overall option in Chaung Tha beach.
Rooms are thoroughly clean and located just a few steps from the beach. More expensive rooms offer hot water, air-con and full beach view. Mattresses are on the firm side, but that seems to be the norm in Chaung Tha. Staff speak English very well and are able to assist with onwards travel arrangements. Guide services for activities such as fishing and trekking are available at reasonable rates along with scooter and bicycle rentals. Use of beach chairs and umbrellas are free for guests but you have to request them during the slow season. The restaurant serves delicious seafood and will also serve it to you in the large beachfront pavilion that serves as the resort's bar. Highly recommended -- this is a fine example of how a hotel should be run in Chaung Tha. Book in advance during high season.
