Inle Princess Resort

Inle Lake

Nestled within the blue mountain ranges on the east bank of Inle Lake, the Inle Princess Resort is encircled by the tranquil lake as well as tropical gardens. 

Built on stilts above the lake, the resort’s 46 wooden chalets combine simplicity with modern comfort as guests relax amidst the beauty of the surroundings – endless green rice paddy fields, undulating rows of mountains and the serene stillness of Inle Lake. Each chalet features traditional décor, with authentic teak wood carvings and large clay ovens for the cooler months. They also boast a large, private outdoor shower.

The restaurant serves authentic Shan meals in a location over the water. During the winter, enjoy your meal indoors in the main dining hall decorated with high ceilings and romantic lighting.

For an authentic experience, the resort’s spa incorporates the special meditation and cleansing techniques of the Shan people. Relive ancient traditions with beauty rituals such as using “Thanaka” on the cheeks and “Kimpun” scrubs to cleanse your body.
