Pristine Lotus Spa Resort Inle

What a way to enjoy Myanmar’s legendary Inle Lake, you think to yourself as you sit on the wooden veranda of your garden villa. Inle twinkles and sparkles in the setting sun, as you reflect on a day spent boating across its calm surface, watching fishermen in their traditional Inn Thar craft and admiring the stupendous views towards the blue mountains that surround the lake.

And now you’re faced with a choice. Will you indulge in a restorative session of soothing and invigorating treatments beneath the domed wooden canopy of the Lotus Spa? Or will you stay exactly where you are, basking in the sunset until it’s time to stroll through perfumed gardens, over wooden walkways, for dinner in the teak-canopied restaurant?
