Inle Princess Resort

Inle Lake, Myanmar

The Inle Princess Resort was one of the first properties to pop up on the perimeter of Inle Lake. It boasts beautiful decor with traditional Burmese flair, and the serene ambiance is present throughout the resort, making for a very peaceful stay.

Delivering a warm and attentive service, the resort's staff are willing to cater to each and every guest's requests to offer a personalised stay. The location of the resort is ideal, with beautiful views out onto the water, and it's the perfect place to catch the sunrise or stunning sunset behind the Shan Hills.


We hand-picked this resort as it struck us with its peaceful aura and authentic charm. For those seeking a traditional experience on the beautiful shores of Inle Lake, we highly recommend the Inle Princess Resort.

The resort offers comfortable accommodation in freestanding, stilted chalets, each with a generous amount of space and equipped with quality amenities. Some of the chalets are located in the lush gardens, while others are set right by the lake for wonderful views. After a day of exploring the lake and immersing yourself in the area's fascinating culture, relax on your private terrace and admire the view over the water. Each chalet is dressed in traditional decor, with authentic teak wood carvings and large clay ovens for warmth in the cooler months. They also feature a large, private outdoor shower, which is a great way to cool down in the warmer months.


The Inle Princess Resort stands on the peaceful eastern shore of the lake. Heho Airport is located 50 minutes away by road or one hour by boat and road, making it easily accessible for transfers.
