The Inle Sanctuary has far exceeded our expectations. We found a beautiful, very spacious and super clean accommodation, whose ecological concept is exemplary. The view from the private terrace is spectacular. Our host, Aung Min, and his wife do their utmost to offer their guests a wonderful stay away from the tourist crowds. Breakfast and dinner are freshly prepared, served on the large terrace with lake view and are simply delicious. Mr. Aung Min offers transfers from and to Nyaung Shwe and from and to Loikaw as well as very interesting day trips with private guide to the surrounding villages. The tours took us through a beautiful landscape and thanks to our fantastic guide Con Saw we had impressive encounters with the local people who gave us deep insights into their everyday life.…
After a 3 hours magic boat trip from the Inle Lake, we discovered the beauty and serenity of the Samkar lake. Approaching the six floating wooden bungalows we could immediately feel the quietness of the place. The warmth welcome from Mr. Min, his wife Mrs Gow and all the staff was the beginning of our perfect holidays. The unforgettable view, the delicious breakfasts and dinners served by the always smiling San, the interesting and varied excursions make our stay a dream.
Well worth the long journey to be in a different world vs Nyaungshwe. Aung min and gor were the best hosts, tour guide and caterer. Amazing beauty, and if you want to see the real Inle lake, and learn about the local culture (genuine fisherman, local weddings, learn about ananism) all in beautifully designed stilted houses. The cooking class on market day is a must. Couldn’t recommend it more, thanks for an amazing stay!!
I loved getting here by boat, staying here one night and leaving by boat again (the trip itself is an experience). There are only six bungalows, right on the lake, plus the restaurant area where the friendly family cooks for you. You can walk to the village for a stroll, not one tourist in sight, or simply lazy around on your deck. They are eco-responsible, too, which only adds to the charm of the place. Recommended.
We had the chance to spend 2 wonderful nights at the Inle Sanctuary. First, we arrived by boat and we must say that this is breathtaking! Everything is so peaceful and lovely. We received a very warm welcome from the hosts & owners of this ecolodge. We enjoyed all the nice services they propose from boat trip on the lake at the sunset to the homemade dinner served prepared by the owner’s wife! We highly recommend also to visit the Monastery & School of the island, and discuss with children and the monks. It is a beautiful project which has been done. Globally we highly recommend this stop during your Myanmar trip: it is a complete « must-have »!
