WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

Location: Sanctum Inle Resort can be found standing on the banks of the famous Inle Lake, near Maing Thauk Village – renowned for its stilted wooden houses and floating vegetable gardens.

History: Officially launched in October 2016, this boutique hotel is the latest addition to a growing number of luxury properties in the area, but has already garnered a reputation for excellence since it’s soft-opening in May 2015.

Service: Sanctum Inle Resort provides the very best in round-the-clock luxury service. Complete with 24-hour concierge and room-service, English-speaking staff are ready to cater to guests’ every whim and desire.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Inspired by the serenity of Lake Inle’s waters, Sanctum lnle Resort is designed to promote contemplation through its off-the-beaten-path position, and the architectural flourishes that invoke monastic traditions, such as Spanish-style arches and the minimalistic room designs. The arched windows and graceful cloisters might be modest in their approach, but there is nothing simple about Sanctum Inle Resort. Lofty and bright, the hotel’s rooms come outfitted with the comforts of home, with natural wood floors, plush beds and cable television - all set off by the solid teak wood furniture, handcrafted by local Myanmar artisans. Here, guests are encouraged to rise early for meditation in the gardens and contemplative walks by the lake.
