Inle Princess is a unique classy full-service resort on Myanmar’s magical Inle Lake where you’ll be pampered from dawn to eve. Probably one of the most inspiring accommodation in Myanmar.
What to Experience?
“In the dawn of a bright morning, amid gardens afloat, In the secret shadow of the sacred hills, lulled by the sounds of the breeze through ancient pagodas, a Princess is at rest. With her majestic tresses, she shelters the birds from the sun, With her slight fingers, she builds a cosy nest, as a throne perched upon her slender legs. With her woman’s heart, she has made of this place her Nirvana, where poems, charm, nature and happiness, live in harmony.”
Start the day spotting birds using the binoculars provided in each room. Explore the unique on-site handicraft village where craftsmen fashion locally inspired items including Shan paper and lacquer ware, or take a staff-arranged visit to the colourful local markets and temples. In winter, take the “Breakfast with Birds”to watch migration birds on the lake at the bird preservation tower. After touring the lake, head to the spa for a massage and relax in the lacquer ware bathtub. Make evening even more special by dining in a romantic garden setting or, in the unique Wine Cellar where meals of Shan, Intha, Fusion, or Asian cuisine are served on a glass-top lacquer ware table under a large ceiling mural. Then head to your room in a simple yet elegantly appointed wooden chalet decorated with traditionally crafted furnishings.
The Inle Princess Resort is the ultimate escape from the ordinary – for a day, a week, or a lifetime.
How does it help?
Deeply spiritual, the owners are driven by the belief they have to give back anything to preserve the environment upon which they live, learn and earn. They wish their guests to enjoy their stay without worrying about having a negative impact on the destination. Therefore they act as responsibly as possible towards the environment, the local community, the staff, their partners and their guests. They grow spices, herbs and vegetables in their organic garden.
They organise cleaning activities with staff, focus on waste management, energy conservation, and water conservation, limit the use of chemicals and pesticides.
Since 2008, they work on reintroducing the “Burmese Cats” who had almost disappeared from the country. After a year, the number of cat families started multiplying, as the place provided was not big enough they built a cat house near the sightseeing area in Inthar traditional style together with a small restaurant called “Inthar Heritage House” where they also run four times a year art exhibition of local artists. They developed a system to filter water and give the entire surplus to the villagers.
Almost all staff is hired locally and some are now in managerial positions, and are following regular trainings. They purchase supplies locally, use local material for the construction. They contribute generously to the welfare of the people through donations and welcome researchers, writers, historians, anthropologists, environmentalists, scientists who contribute to the development of knowledge on the lake and for the people.
