About Sanctum Inle Resort
The stylish and elegant Sanctum Inle Resort opened in late 2015. Developed by the acclaimed Apple Tree Group (the team behind such prestigious properties as La Résidence in Hue, Vietnam), the 97-room hotel is the first in Inle Lake to offer a genuinely five star experience. The architecture’s unique design – its many arches and cloisters invoking a monastic way of life – contributes to the atmosphere of seclusion and quietude. Discerning travellers can enjoy spacious and highly comfortable accommodation as well as fine-quality authentic cuisine served in the Refectory, while the Sanctuary Spa offers a range of deluxe treatments for those wishing to be pampered at the end of a long day’s exploring.
