Winner of the World Luxury Hotels Award in 2017 and identified as one of the best resorts in Asia by Condé Nast, this resort is an escape from reality in a dreamy destination, where you will be able to embrace the peaceful surroundings and lifestyle of Inle Lake. Unwind by the beautiful swimming pool overlooking the glistening waters of the lake or indulge in a spa treatment at the luxurious Sanctuary Spa, a perfect treat after a day of exploring.

The Experiences – Visit golden pagodas and admire the one-leg rowers of Inle Lake

Myanmar has maintained the ability to surprise even the most experienced travellers thanks to its impressive pagodas, Buddhist monuments and ancient temples perched in splendid isolation. Immerse yourself in a country brimming with natural and man-made wonders, as you travel through unique cities, taste fragrant and varied cuisine, and embrace the slow-paced Burmese lifestyle.

Begin your adventure in the capital city of Yangon, your first chance to experience the country's marvellous landmarks. Visit Yangon’s impressive Shwedagon Pagoda, one of Buddhism's most sacred sites, adorned with 27 metric tonnes of gold leaf. Let us take you behind the scenes, showing you the full history of the site and lifestyle of locals. On this guided visit, you will be able to enjoy a traditional Burmese breakfast and experience the local daily ritual of purchasing an offering. Your last stop in Yangon is General Aung San's mausoleum. A must-see in the area, the museum pays tribute to one of the most-loved figures in the country's history, Aung San, founder of modern Myanmar and a national hero.

The adventure continues after a quick flight, taking you to the heart of Bagan, the golden land, dotted with over 3,000 temples. Pay a visit to the area's most famous landmarks, from the Shwezigon Pagoda - the most iconic site in Bagan - to the impressive Ananda temple, with its distinctive tower-like spire visible from miles away over the Bagan plains.

Board your luxurious, custom-built Strand Cruise ship, your home for the next four nights. This luxury cruise will take you on a remarkable journey along the Ayeyarwady River. Sailing through dreamy landscapes and local villages you will reach Mingun and Mandalay - the second largest city and last royal capital of Myanmar - whilst visiting breathtaking temples, pagodas and monasteries. You will be well and truly looked after on this beautiful ship, with delicious breakfast, champagne on the deck before each evening meal and a delightful French dinner on your last night.

Picture a vast, serene lake encompassed by floating gardens and villages: your next stop is one of Myanmar's most-renowned destinations, Inle Lake. Take a morning bike ride around the Khaung Dine village, the native village on the northwestern shore of the lake, then enjoy a lunch of local Shan cuisine and witness the iconic leg rowers as they catch fish from their narrow boats. Bask in the lake's traditional atmosphere as you board your private motorboat. Admire floating gardens and colorful markets and discover the slow-paced life of the surrounding villages.

End your tour the best possible way, with a one-of-a-kind lunch on a rice carrier boat in the middle of the lake, an experience available exclusively to Luxury Escapes guests.
