Our guests have the one-of-a-kind experience of sleeping in cozy stilted houses in the heart of Inle Lake.

Inle Heritage Stilt Houses are built on strong wooden beams and have sweeping views of lush green hills. Inside, you will find deep, luxurious beds, traditional Shan paper and locally woven fabrics.

Each room is built with the earth in mind using teak, hardwood and bamboo. Treat yourself to a solar-powered hot shower and organic toiletries. When you stay with us, you have a peaceful retreat that supports our students and conservation projects.

At Inle Heritage Stilt Houses, you get luxurious and cozy modern accommodation immersed in Inle's natural and cultural heritage.

Our rooms are named after our lake villages: Inn Chan, Kela, Main Thauk, Nampan, Samkar, Ywama, Inn Dein, Taung Tho, Lin Kin and Khaung Daing

The walls show water lilies and lotus painted by local artist U Han Sein.

There are pillows and curtains woven in Pa-O villages nearby.
