Our new resort will feature different options of rooms:
The “VIEW” room is a single deluxe bungalow with 2 rooms and private bathroom. The bedroom has a queen-size bed. The other room will be a sitting area, and can also have a single bed on request. This bungalow is on the top of the hill. It is quiet, and it has the best view on the property. The rate is 45,000 kyat per night.
The “300” rooms are 3 double rooms, side-by-side. Big rooms, each with a private bathroom. Two rooms will have queen-size beds, and one room will have two single beds. Each room can have an additional single bed, on request. The rate per room is 35,000 per night. An extra bed in these rooms will be 5000 kyat per night.
The “EGYPT” rooms are double rooms with private bathrooms. Located close to the reception area. The bedroom is 13 x 13 feet (4 meters square), with attached private bathrooms 5 x 10 feet. At this time, the “Egypt” rooms are fan cooled only. The rate per room is 30,000 per night.
The “L” building is a 2-floor structure with one single room downstairs, and one double room upstairs. Both rooms are 13 feet x 13 feet, and have private 5 x 10 foot bathrooms. These are air-conditioned rooms.
The room above is 35,000 kyat per night, and the room below is 30,000 kyat per night.
“Dorm Rooms” – 2 units side-by-side. Each unit has 3 bunk beds (2 single beds, one low and one high) for a total of 6 guests per room. The guests in each room have a shared shower and toilet. Fan-cooled only, but the thatch roof keeps the rooms relatively cool. The rate is 15,000 kyat per guest.
All the rooms have windows with nice views, and patios for relaxing outside of the room. All the room rates include breakfast.
Every guest can use the swimming pool (no extra charge), and on-site restaurants for lunch, dinner, snacks, and drinks. We will also have a mini-mart for the little things that people need. Starlight Resort offers laundry service as well.
We have motorbikes and bicycles for rent, and we will arrange motorbike taxi and car taxi service for our guests, for local tours and going into Ye town.
We can arrange guided tours with English-speaking guides. There are some very interesting places to visit in the area. Having an English-speaking guide is a big advantage for foreigners, and we have several polite, professional, and knowledgeable guides to help with navigation, translation, ordering food, and to explain local history and traditions.
We can organize transportation to the guests’ next destination, and arrange private drivers to deliver them to Starlight Guesthouse and Starlight Resort from Yangon, Mawlamyine, Hpa-An, Dawei, and beyond.
At both locations, we give an information package to each room. The package includes: services and prices offered by Starlight Guesthouse and Resort, maps of the area that include highlights to see and do, and a timetable for buses, vans and trains for your journey onward.
Come experience Ye! Whether you choose Starlight Guesthouse, or Starlight Resort, we will make your stay as enjoyable and comfortable as you deserve.

There have been rumors that Starlight Guesthouse (in Ye, Mon State) is not licensed to accept foreign guests. This is NOT true. We have the correct license. Please do not believe any story that Starlight cannot host foreigners. Also, travelers have been told that they cannot even visit Ye. People have cancelled their planned visit because they were told by travel agencies and hotel staff (in other cities) that Ye is off-limits now. This is not the case! Don’t skip Ye because of inaccurate information.
Come experience a place of the past, anxious for the future. Ye (pronounced YAY) is the largest town in Southern Mon State. Until late 2013, it was off-limits to foreigners. Visitors are now welcome, and you can discover a culture and a landscape that has been unseen by outsiders since before the Second World War. The people are as curious about you as you will be by them. Southern Myanmar isn’t cluttered with franchise shops and the cookie-cutter sameness of so many tourist destinations. You will be amazed by totally new experiences of sights, sounds and traditions.
Come and stay with us at Starlight Guesthouse. We will introduce you to the area, assist in planning day trips, recommend the local highlights and arrange for transportation, with English speaking guides to accompany you. Bring your camera! It’s a photographer’s dream land.
Check our activities page for festivals and special events in Ye and surrounding areas. It’s a great way to experience a variety of food, music, sports, Myanmar culture and other entertainment. Come see us if you really need to get away from it all. Ye is completely different from the world that you are familiar with!
