Inle Lake View Resort is a stylish Burmese-French owned resort situated on the eastern shores of Inle Lake. This boutique resort is surrounded by lush gardens, and there is an emphasis on local materials and decor throughout; the overall effect being incredibly enjoyable. Located slightly away from the lake itself, all of the 40 rooms have lake views and are tastefully decorated with Burmese furniture; bathrooms are especially large and very pleasant. An excellent restaurant, with indoor and outdoor dining, a small bar and good spa means that there is everything you need on site. What's more, the resort is the proud owner of Burma's very first heated infinity swimming pool. The glistening water of the outdoor pool spans 18 metres and is surrounded by the spectacular sights and sounds of the lake. This is the ideal place to relax whilst swilling a cocktail and taking in the picturesque views. Wireless internet is only available in the lobby of the hotel and is of varying quality.
To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.Bill Bryson
