Sofitel Inle Lake Myat Min
As Myanmar‘s first Sofitel address, Sofitel Inle Lake Myat Min recently opened on the shores of Inle Lake. Following Inle Lake‘s inscription as a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 2015, Sofitel Inle Lake is likely to be one of the latest new hotels built directly by the water. The resort‘s architecture and layout is respectful of traditional villages around the lake, with local accents incorporated into the decorative features of the rooms.
The hotel‘s 101 rooms include 36 Luxury Rooms, 25 Junior Suites, 12 Prestige Suites, 27 Opera Suites, and 1 Imperial Suite.Traditional Burmese patterns are displayed in every room, while the use of bamboo, rattan and silk allows every guest to stay connected with nature. Resort facilities include two swimming pools; one of which is an infinity adult pool set directly on the water to create a feeling of oneness with Inle Lake.
At Sofitel Inle Lake, guests are instantly rooted into the local Shan way of life with the resort‘s sustainability initiatives which offer opportunities to experience the local culture. Every day of the week, guests are invited to enjoy the floating market where they can browse goods created by local craftsmen. Bicycle excursions are available to the nearby winery and temples, and guests are invited to visit local pagodas and offer alms to monks to experience an authentic slide of Burmese culture and traditions.
