Set on the eastern shore of the Inle Lake, this privately owned resort and spa first opened in 2005 and is a great base from which to explore the lake. While here you can see the floating gardens and markets, teak houses set on stilts above the water, and pagodas, as well as the fanous leg-rowing fishermen unique to this area.
Accommodation is in cottages and villas set in the grounds, all with attractive poliished wooden floors, tea and coffee makers, minibar, safe, IDD phone, TV and en-suite bathroom. Individual climate control allows you to set the perfect temperature. Villas are larger than the cottages and each has a separate siitting room.
The resort restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers a wide range of flavours and styles of cooking incorporating Burmese, Indian, Thai, Chinese and European dishes. You can dine indoors and outside on the terrace enjoying views of the gardens. There are two bars, one indoors and the other by the lake, serving drinkis and snacks and providing a friendly atmosphere in which to chat to other guests.
