Your Host & The Team

Yin Myo Su“Like most of our staff, I grew up on Inle Lake and was raised to embrace Inthar’s rich traditions. Our boutique refuge was created to share the hidden treasures of Inle, its innovative local cuisine, and traditional practices, architecture and artwork amidst a natural landscape.”

Yin Myo Su


Descending down from the Himalayans, large geese with black stripes across their white heads scour the Burmese plains. They too wish to visit and stay on the edge of a lagoon, where the shadows of the mountains surround Inle Lake. In a place where everything seems to float, one can see the Inle Princess Resort with its all-wooden structures and triangular pointed roofs. Set along the water’s edge, this world of water gleams with water lilies, lush foliage, and small villages perched on stilts. Punctuated by temples and monasteries, which emit deep hues of blue as the day draws to a close, the welcoming Inle Princess Resort and its lake are a veritable oasis of charm.

We Care

This resort encourages guests to support Inle’s unique cultural and natural identity by buying locally made arts and crafts, enjoying Inthar cuisine, and learning how to cook it. It also is an active contributor to the Inle Heritage Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation that aims to preserve the Inle region, and help it to thrive as a place to visit, work, and live.

The foundation offers vocational training for Inle residents, advocates conservation of lake wildlife and is re-introducing Burmese cats to the region. It also works towards environmental solutions like waste and wastewater treatment, monitoring the lake’s water quality, encourages traditional lake architecture, offers exhibition space for local artists, and has a shop selling locally made arts and crafts. The foundation uses the proceeds from the businesses to fund other heritage projects that do not make money. To date, this covers around 60% of current expenses. Private contributions and support make up the rest, and their goal is to be fully self-sufficient by 2020.
