The Riverside @ Hsipaw Resort is a comfortable lodge located in the northern Shan state in Burma. Situated on the Dokhtawady River, the property features twenty en-suite rooms, all with beautiful river views.

Hsipaw has long been regarded as one of the best places to head off trekking in Burma, and the Riverside provides the perfect base to return to after a day walk.

The rooms are fairly large at 40sqm and all feature river views. They are divided into ten thatched duplex bungalows, each containing two rooms and all with lovely sit-outs from which to watch the world go by. All rooms have air-conditioning, mosquito nets and ensuite bathrooms with showers (no bathtubs). They are designed well, blending exposed brick with classic local furniture.

The Riverside @ Hsipaw Resort has a central restaurant featuring a range of cuisine, a bar and a well-maintained garden. The real reason to come to Hsipaw is to get out and about by day, and we can arrange a variety of day treks of differing lengths and exertion to showcase what this very off-the-beaten track destination has to offer. We can also arrange for boat trips on the Dokthawady should you so wish.
