Located close to Inle Lake Sanctum Inle Resort looks more like a European Monastery than a Burmese Hotel but the renaissance style and verdant grounds provide a lovely base to explore.
The 94 rooms are spacious and bright and there are plenty of spots from which to enjoy the lake views including the 20-metre infinity pool, built into the hillside.
Why we like Sanctum Inle Resort
The sunset views across the lake from the atmospheric bar are lovely.
- 20 metre infinity edge swimming pool
Cycling is an excellent way to explore the lakeside and surrounding area and bikes are available at the hotel for guests use.
Located on the fringes of Inle Lake and reached in approximately 90 minutes from Heho airport. Alternatively, arrive by water; following a 60-minute drive from the airport to Nyaung Shwe take a 30-minute boat journey across Inle Lake to the hotel jetty.
