Myanmar's very first Sofitel property has just opened along the shores of the famous Inle Lake. The Sofitel Inle Lake Myat Min is a luxury boutique resort that is set to become a new destination for couples and travelers looking for serenity in Myanmar’s Shan State. The property is not only accessible by car but can also be reached via motorboat for guests who wish to get a chance to see the Intha rowing experience, where boatmen adopt the well-known traditional one-legged rowing technique to row their boats on Inle Lake.
The area around the Sofitel Inle Lake Myat Min offers a unique experience of Myanmar, with stunning floating gardens surrounded by centennial pagodas, offering guests a glimpse into the traditional way of life adopted by local tribes and communities. Following Inle Lake’s inscription as a World Heritage site in UNESCO’s World Network of Biosphere Reserves program in 2015, Sofitel Inle Lake Myat Min is likely to be one of the last new hotels built directly by the water.
The Sofitel Inle Lake Myat Min's architecture and layout is evocative and respectful of traditional villages around the lake, with local accents native to the region incorporated into the decorative features of the rooms. Traditional Burmese patterns are displayed in every room, while the use of bamboo, rattan and silk allows every guest to stay connected with nature.
The Sofitel Inle Lake Myat Min's 101 rooms include 36 Luxury Rooms, 25 Junior Suites, 12 Prestige Suites, 27 Opera Suites, and 1 Imperial Suite. Modern technology, such as high-speed Internet, Bluetooth speakers and IPTV provide access to contemporary comfort without interrupting the natural sense of flow. All rooms feature generous deluxe amenities, separate oversized soaking bathtubs and rain showers to create a serene feeling of wellbeing.
The luxurious new retreat at Sofitel Inle Lake Myat Min now offers special opening rates starting at USD 100 per night. The offer includes accommodation in a Luxury Room inclusive of breakfast for two and 10% discount on spa treatments. Normal rates for a Luxury Room start at 198 USD. This offer is available for bookings until 30 June 2018.
