Out in nowhere”

Friends told me to go to Little Samkar although the extra travel to get there is costly and long. But you get the opportunity to travel across almost the entire Inle Lake.The food is excellent. There is no aircon, which was needed when I was there. The garden is beautiful and you simply do not expect a lodge like this in Samka. There is maybe not much to look at in Samka, but for the traditional farmer's village, houses, daily life, the market and of course the stupas. Samka once was a very important place in the Shana region. Tracks can be organized.

Beautiful, warm stay with lovely people ”

The view, the location, the staff

We had the most fantastic time in this sleepy little village. The boat ride is three hours down through the lakes which itself was a treat. We then arrived at sleepy Samkar and had a fantastic couple of days. The lodge is clean, welcoming and friendly. The staff couldn't have been nicer. Staying at the lodge allowed us to meet many local villagers and as a result we had experiences that I will remember for a long time. The rooms have balconies overlooking a lovely garden and the view from the restaurant upstairs was stunning. We were lucky to be the only people staying there. A great little place that not many people know about. If you fancy something off the tourist trail (for the time being), then this is the place.

Gros potentiel mais très décevant, mauvais rapport qualité/prix”

Séjour de 2 nuits en décembre 2016 L'endroit pourrait être top: seuls à Samkar, dans ce petit village très sympa (attention pour ceux qui n'aiment pas les araignées y'en a vraiment pas mal.... ), la maison est belle, la vue superbe , affluence au resto le midi (les groupes qui prennent les tours d'Inle organisés) mais après il n'y a personne, le lever de soleil depuis la terrasse est magnifique, l'ambiance du soir quand la nuit est tombée, qu'il n'y a plus de lumière nul part est top... sauf que la nuitée coûte quand même 100$ et qu'à ce prix la chambre et l'ensemble de l'établissement n'est pas super propre (voir pas du tout pour la salle de bain), le PDJ est ultra basique (on a le choix entre différents plats mais on ne peut prendre qu'1 seule chose genre 2 pancakes et un thé et voilà, la 2ème tasse de thé est facturée !), aucun service proposé (mais tout le monde est très souriant), terrasse de la chambre qui pourrait être sympa si elle était nettoyée des toiles d'araignées, idem pour le jardin ... bref on paie l'originalité de dormir à Samkar et la vue pour le reste ne rien attendre. Le resto le soir est bon.

petit coin de paradis”

emplacement, ambiance, cadre

Coup de coeur de notre voyage, En revanche il faudrait mieux gérer les activités, pirogues, transfert depuis l'aéroport. Car l'hôtel est loin, beaucoup plus loin que la localisation indiquée sur Agoda. En fait le Lodge est directement dans le village de Sankar

sehr schoenes kleinod am ende der welt”

Hier ist die zeit stehengeblieben. Teakholz das ganze Haus. Die dielen knarren und die Uhr aus der kolonialzeit hängt an der wand. Man meint der Gouverneur kommt jeden Moment zur Tür herein mit seiner goldenen taschenuhr in der Hand. Die Anfahrt mit dem Boot ist abenteuerlich, aber absolut ein unvergessliches Erlebnis. Das Haus ist sauber, die Terrasse zum Essen ein Traum. Man hat einen herrlichen Blick auf den See und die berge dahinter. Das Essen und das Frühstück ist lecker, authentisch und abwechslungsreich. Das Personal sehr lieb und bemüht. Also absolut zu empfehlen dieses hotel. Für Leute, die Ruhe, tolle Landschaften und ursprünglichkeit suchen. Die im Ort gelegene pagodenanlage ist mit eine der schönsten gewesen, die ich hier gesehen habe
