Hotel Overview

Sense of place

In the idyllic and remote northern Kachin State, a 15-minute drive from Putao town.

Rooms at Malikha Lodge

The thatched bungalow-style rooms are exquisitely designed with vaulted ceilings, wood-burning fires and spacious living areas – an enticing, deep-sinking teak bathtub at the centre. Enhancing the feeling of utter serenity and seclusion are the verandas, with their views of rice terraces and the snow-capped mountains in the distance.

Food & Drink

The restaurant serves a wide selection of local and international cuisines, including plenty of vegetarian options. There is also a fantastic Italian restaurant on site.


Indulge in a soothing massage treatment or reviving bath in the Spa Bungalow, surrounded by the bamboo forest. You'll be well-looked after at the Malikha Lodge; the wood-burning fire in your room is lit by staff every morning, keeping you cosy throughout the day.

Activities at Malikha Lodge

Tear yourself away from the luxurious lodge to take advantage of the great outdoors: whether that’s gliding down the Malikha River on a cruise, going for elephant treks, mountain biking or visiting a local tribal village.
