Contemporary lakeside retreat in central Myanmar with a restaurant over the lake and a walk-in wine cellar
An ultimate get-away-from-it-all retreat, the Novotel Inle Lake Myat Min is for lazy lakeside relaxation in a cool, contemporary setting. Architecturally inspiring, the hotel features bold cubic buildings, wood panel walls and vast windows. Accommodation options include 60 junior suites and 60 lakeside villas; each is decorated with dark wood flooring and royal blue and charcoal-gray furnishings. All rooms have patios or balconies, but it's well worth splurging on an overwater villa for spectacular views. The outdoor pool deck is great for a cooling dip, while afternoons can be spent sipping a cocktail (or two) at the Sunset bar. The stylish Terrace restaurant serves Asian and international dishes as well as daily specials. There's a handy on-site spa and hammam if you're seeking relaxation; for a little gentle exercise, use the free bikes to explore the area, or take a slow boat out onto the lake.
In the Area
Located in central Myanmar, Lake Inle is surrounded by lush countryside and small villages, including the traditional town of Nyaungshwe. Learn how to cook local dishes at the Bamboo Delight Cooking School, where chefs help you choose ingredients at a market before showing you the ropes. Strolling around the town, you can't help being charmed by the cultural sights and traditions; two must-sees are the Ywama (floating market) and Shwe Yan Pyay Monastery. Of course, plenty of the area's activities are based around — or above — the lake. For spectacular views of the region, head up in a hot air ballon.
