    The hotel is wonderfully located just on the lake shore. Food is delicious and service is impeccable! The hotel grounds are well maintained and spa is also wonderful!

    This is a beautiful place with gorgeous facilities and delicious food. It is more of a place for older folks and couples and it a bit off the beaten path. But even as a single traveler there is plenty to do here to keep yourself occupied with excursions one can book right from the hotel.

    Perfect stay

    Amazing place to stay. We were driven in to the jetty after a long day on the lake and it was all simply perfect. Amazing staff, service, room, facilities and the food was brilliant. My only regret was I wished we stayed there for longer.

    You will love your stay!

    Property and staff are wonderful. Beautiful lake access without the boat noise from the lake. Hotel supplies bikes with easy bike ride to very good local restaurants. Pain-free check-in and beautiful infinity pool. Extremely attentive staff. Really, a first-rate hotel. Kudos to the GM Baptiste!

    Sanctum Inle Resort offers a relaxing retreat or base to explore Inle Lake and the surrounding areas. We were upgraded to a junior suite which was a nice surprise and the villa was spacious and very well appointed. The pool offers a refreshing dip with views onto Inle Lake. Staff always have a smile and are very accomodating to any requests. Breakfast is a la carte and offered a very good variety of options. Complimentary bicycles are provided to explore the surrounding areas. Dinner was delicious and the waiter made an excellent recommendation for a locally produced red wine to accompany the food. I would however have liked to see more local dishes offered in the restaurant. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sanctum Inle Resort.

    The sanctum on Inle Lake is a gorgeous boutique hotel on the lake edge. Service was exquisite, from happy caring staff. We had a suite with glorious views of a lake Inle. Food and beverages were both fabulous. The one day tour on the lake to the various villages, pagodas and markets is a wonderful experience. Hot air ballooning is the plan when we return. I wish we had stayed longer! A surprisingly excellent find in the middle of Myanmar!!
