Inle Princess Resort
Inle Lake

This peaceful family owned resort is the perfect base for exploring Burma's (Myanmar's) stunning Inle Lake. Jutting over the eastern shores of the lake, the resort was built by local craftsmen, using timber and bamboo from the area, and the style reflects the traditional architecture of the Shan people.

Each of the 36 large wooden villas are decorated with Burmese textiles and have a comfortable sitting area. All have a private balcony overlooking either the Shan mountains, the tumbling gardens or the lake itself. Princess and Lake Houses face east for panoramic sunsets, while Mountain Houses have exceptional sun rise views. In keeping with the resort's ecological ethos, the houses have fans rather than air conditioning and there are no TVs; the rooms are rustic and unfussy, and complement the natural environment of the lake. The lake can be quite chilly in the winter (from November to February) and so the resort provides heaters and extra blankets, but we would recommend packing an extra jumper for the cool nights.

The restaurant has great views over the water, particularly at sunset, and the varied menu of European and Burmese dishes is impressive, as are the local specialities of the Shan, Intha and Pao ethnic minorities. The spa is enchanting; three large wooden verandas on stilts hover over the water, with floor to ceiling windows giving lovely views over the countryside. The property has a good-sized outdoor swimming pool in a sunspot for those summer days; a serene place to start your day or relax after sightseeing. The service is exceptional and friendly throughout, and there is Wi-fi available in the hotel's main areas but not in the rooms.

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
