Zayar Htet San is central Dawei’s smartest option.

And while it’s also just about the most expensive, the excellently appointed rooms represent a very good deal in Burma.

The name isn’t one that rolls of a non-Burmese tongue; we’re not convinced by the eccentric architecture either, and it’s a shame they didn’t add a pool -- otherwise everything else at this relatively new hotel is good. Perhaps the exterior decor passes for chic in Dawei but we think it would pass for a 1970s-era shopping mall. The interior, lobby area and rooms though are simple and tasteful. The manicured garden has plenty of room for a pool though when we visited they were busy constructing a huge two-storey restaurant aside the main hotel building. Currently they have a small and cramped breakfast area adjacent to the lobby.

Rooms are a decent size, very clean and simply decorated. Even standard ones come with bathtub as well as cable TV, fridge/minibar, air-con and WiFi. Deluxe versions are larger and equipped with tea- and coffee-making facilities. For those who complain about Southeast Asian mattresses, theirs were softer than usual and topped with cosy duvets. As usual in these parts, staff members are perhaps lacking experience and not always very professional, but also as usual they’re very friendly and helpful. You’ll always find one or two people who can speak some English. They do have 37 rooms to fill and in quiet periods and low season will definitely discount their rates below. This is a good all-round deal and as with similar flashpacker spots in Myeik, for example, it’s worth splashing out here rather than in other more expensive touristy spots further north.
