Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Villa Inle Resort & Spa sits on the shores of Inle Lake in the hills of Burma, one of the most hyped up destinations in the country – and for a good reason too. It is home to a range of ethnic tribes, floating bamboo houses, Buddhist shrines and pagodas.

Rooms at Villa Inle Resort & Spa

The traditionally-decorated rooms and suites are exceptionally spacious, and come with king-sized beds, polished woods, high ceilings and local artworks, alongside floor-to-ceiling windows and verandas with panoramic waterfront views.

Food & Drink

The restaurant serves a plethora of local delicacies, including Shan, Burma and Inthar cuisines (western cuisines are also included on the menu). Fresh produce is sourced from the hotel's organic gardens.


Indulge in a restorative treatment at the resort’s unique spa while taking the beautiful natural surroundings - guaranteed to leave you feeling rested and rejuvenated. You will love the charming earthy accents dotted around the spa, such as the quaint wooden fountains with bamboo taps, which bring the charm of the countryside indoors.

Activities at Villa Inle Resort & Spa

After a day of exploring the villages and monasteries or a guided trek in the Shan Hills, a soak in the pool is a well-deserved treat - or relax poolside on one of the sunloungers. If you've fallen under the spell of Inle Lake, sit back on one of the little fishing boats and go for a scenic cruise.
