Novotel Inle Lake
Inle Lake

Spacious, contemporary in design, and with the sophisticated style of the Novotel brand, Novotel Inle Lake is a reliable choice. This is one of the largest hotels on Myanmar's Inle Lake with 121 rooms and offers its guests every amenity you could wish for; extensive spa, fitness centre, games and leisure lounge, and two restaurants. Aimed at both business and leisure guests, the feel of this hotel is a little more corporate and has a slightly industrial quality to its architecture. One may think that it looks a little out of place in such a rural surrounding.

The resort stretches far over the lake’s banks, and there are golf buggies on hand 24 hours to take you around the sprawling property should you need it. Rooms vary between suites, which are on the banks of the lake, and villas, which are on stilts over the water. The deluxe rooms, while very comfortable do not offer the best views of the lake and so we recommend staying in one of the villas. Each 112 square metre villa offers a very tranquil environment with separate living area and bedroom, free standing bath and rain shower, and partial views of the lake. The best villas are of course those on the front row, however they do lack privacy, neighbouring the Sunset View Restaurant, which has pride of place in the front row of this resort. The Sunset View Restaurant is the perfect place to cosy up next to the fire pit and savour the unbeatable sunset over this remarkable lake.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.
Bill Bryson

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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
