Inle Lake, Burma
Sanctum Inle Resort
  • Designed to look like a European monastery

  • Interiors are tasteful and contemporary with a classic twist

  • Villas are ideal for families, with a king room connecting to a twin room

  • Private feel as there is a channel leading to the lake

Designed by the acclaimed architect Brigitte Dumond de Chassart, the resort is quite different to other hotels you will come across on Inle Lake. It draws on monastic influences (Spanish not Burmese), featuring arched walkways and cloisters that is some way could also be described as a touch colonial. It is strikingly luxurious; a perfect mix of minimalism, style and elegance.

The resort features a central main building where you find the restaurants, bar and some of the rooms. There is also the Cluster which is located behind the main building and houses many of the Cloister Classic Rooms. There are also villas located to the left of the main building, perfect for families wanting a two bedroom unit.

Sanctum Inle Lake has light and airy rooms, all featuring teak floorboards and exposed wooden beams. Expect all the mod cons such as air-conditioning, mini bars, modern bathrooms and TVs. The villas are ideal for families, offering two bedrooms and a private terrace overlooking the lake. The superb Abbey Suites are located in the main building and have their own exquisite private terrace.

The Rectory is the main restaurant and is located at the front of the main building overlooking the lake. Drawing on local Shan culinary influences, it provides a wide range of dishes and also has international options available. There is also a spa and a main swimming pool which is due to be completed in 2016.
