Set in Nyaung Shwe, on the eastern bank of Inle Lake, Sanctum Inle Resort resembles a decadent Renaissance monastery complete with cloistered courtyards and porticos. A 90-minute drive from Heho Airport, it features views of Inle Lake, scented gardens and an exquisite spa.
Its 94 rooms and suites are all generously proportioned with seating areas, oversized windows and exposed wooden beams. Renowned designer, Brigitte Dumond de Chassart, has preserved a monastic-style minimalist feel whilst still ensuring every modern comfort.
Dine at The Refectory for celebrated garden-to-table fare in the Shan tradition, as well as international favourites, in a lakeside setting. Sample Myanmar-brewed beers at Cloister Bar.
Sanctum Inle is ideally located to explore the Lake’s stilted villages, timeless one-legged rowing fishermen, markets and local infrastructure. Busy days are happily concluded in the resort’s tranquil spa or by its spectacular lake-facing infinity pool.

“The design of Sanctum Inle Resort is in keeping with a European monastery with beautiful arches and cloisters. The hotel has fabulous views over the lake, and offers lots of activities on the lake as well as within the grounds, including cycling, relaxing in the spa or reclining by the outdoor pool. The restaurant serves some of the best food in the region and the well-appointed Cloister Bar serves traditional favourites as well as a wide selection of locally brewed beers.”
