Inle Princess Resort
Inle Lake

This peaceful Burmese-owned resort is the perfect base for exploring 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 46 large wooden houses are decorated with Burmese textiles and have a comfortable sitting area. All have a private balcony overlooking the Shan mountains, the tumbling gardens or the lake itself. Private and Lake Houses face east for panoramic sunsets, while Mountain Houses have 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 restaurant has great views over the water, especially at sunset, and the menu of European and Burmese dishes is impressive as are the local specialties of the Shan, Intha, and Pao ethnic minorities. The lake can be quite chilly in the winter (Nov - Feb). The resort provides heaters and extra blankets but we would recommend packing an extra jumper for the cool nights. The spa is excellent; three large rooms have floor to ceiling views over the local countryside. Wifi is available in the hotel's reception and library areas but not in the rooms. The property has also just finished an outdoor swimming pool, providing a serene environment to start your day or relax after sightseeing. Service is warm and friendly throughout.

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.
