Ngwe Moe Hotel

The well-situated and longstanding Ngwe Moe Hotel had just had a welcome makeover when we visited in early 2016.

The reno was a good move on the owner’s part ,since as one of the town’s older hotels it was getting a bit shabby around the edges. They’re not competing with the would-be four-star Strand, but are a cut above other midrange options such as OK and Sandalwood. They have a great waterfront location plus plenty of rooms, which our highly recommended spot, the Cinderella Hotel, lacks. With 77 rooms spread over six storeys, availability shouldn’t be an issue here, though they’re clearly going to do well with tour groups which could impact on the atmosphere.

Decor is simple and uncluttered, with varnished wood floors and new furniture finishing off their already spacious rooms. They’re well appointed, with large hot-water bathrooms (the deluxe rooms have tubs), cable TV, fridge, tea- and coffee-making facilities, efficient new air-con units and workable WiFi. Rates include breakfast. Views from the front rooms are superb though if you can’t stretch to the riverview supplement, or they’re all full, the restored downstairs bar and restaurant is also a top spot for a sundowner or evening meal. The large entrance driveway keeps riverfront noise down without compromising the view.

In their former rather dilapidated state Ngwe Moe missed out on Mawlamyine’s initial tourism spike, so they’ve a bit to make up in service terms, but what the numerous smartly turned out staff lack in experience is made up for by enthusiasm and helpfulness. We've cited their standard published rates but with a lot of rooms to fill and some catching up to do decent discounts ought to be forthcoming during low season and quiet periods.
