Your Host & The Team


“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.”

Welcome to Inle Lake


Inle Lake Myanmar is one of the country’s iconic sights, fascinating local culture within stunning scenery make this a must for any itinerary, and Secret Retreats have selected the best Inle Lake hotels to share with you. Set in the Shan Hills of Myanmar Inle Lake is a freshwater lake at over 800m elevation, it is the 2nd largest lake in Myanmar. A lake of superlatives it is also home to unique wildlife with over 9 species of fish and 20 species of snails unique to Inle Lake. The uniqueness of its ecosystem was noticed and protected by UNESCO in 2015 when the lake was designated one of the World’s Network Biosphere Reserves. The Inthar people who call Inle Lake home have provided great inspiration to the Inle Lake hotels and resorts. The architecture of their homes, built on stilts over the lake, has been employed by many of the local Inle Lake resort owners in the design of their hotels, making check-in by boat a necessity and giving guests an uninterrupted view of the lake scenery from their Inle hotel room windows. The area around Inle Lake offers so much to the visitor that a stay at Pindaya is highly recommended before heading to your Inle hotel, and Secret Retreats’s Pindaya hotel selection offers a truly local experience, complimenting and contrasting wonderfully with the Inle Lake luxury hotels to follow.

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.


“Hidden on the banks of Inle Lake, arrive to this haven on a small boat where the captain paddles with one foot. Access activities from the hotel pier, and enjoy organic local cuisine from 36 peaceful and spacious chalets that face the lake or lagoon.”

Kim, the discoverer.
