Villa Inle Resort and Spa, Lake Inle

Cameras whirr away, but yours is silent as you soak up the sight. The floating market has just arrived at the lakeside village and the scene is one of activity, colour and clamour. You lower your camera and watch. After all, your memory is much greater than even the most sophisticated digital kit.

It needs to be. If you make staying at the Villa Inle Resort part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Myanmar, your visit will be full of picture-worthy moments and memorable sights. The hotel itself is new, but follows the Burmese architectural tradition to create a stylish haven amidst the lake’s surrounding countryside and the sightseeing opportunities. The stilt villages, for example, or monasteries and ornate pagodas. Festival barges and leg-rowing fishermen, paper-makers and weavers…

  • We have travelled with The Ultimate Travel Company six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. Given our obvious satisfaction with Ultimate, we had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was unfortunately cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble. When travel becomes viable again we would definitely rebook with them.
