Aureum Palace on Inle Lake is one of the most magical and unique hotels I have ever had the pleasure to experience. This hotel sets the standards for hospitality and elegance!
Arrival is by longboat and seeing the hotel n the distance, I was hoping this was to be my place to stay on Inle Lake.
From the moment I stepped off the dock, Pa Pa Min, our hostess and manager, was there with her friendly staff to greet us and it was wonderful to feel so welcome after a long journey.
The villas are spacious and beautifully decorated with a sea of floating flowers in our bathroom, gracefully draped netting over the beds, a comfortable lounging area, and an enormous balcony on the water with the most spectacular sunsets.
Every morning we were greeted by Pa Pa Min, with her welcoming smile, as we joyfully sampled the enormous selection of Western and local cuisine, with generous portions before we set off for a day of adventure on the Lake.
Our daily excursions were also a highlight of this trip. Hours on the water...passing villages built entirely on stilts as they perched over the waterways which brought an unexpected surprise around every corner. Entire crops of fresh vegetables are grown on the water and the fishermen with nets extended were part of life on the Lake.
And at the end of the day it was wonderful to return to our Palace and enjoy a swim before heading up to the lounge for drinks and brilliant sunsets.
My only regret~ was leaving. I hope everyone has an opportunity to see and experience true warmth and kindness that was the most integral part of my stay at the Aureum Palace on Inle Lake.
I will return soon.
