Thahara Inle Heritage is the ideal way to experience the majesty of Inle Lake, one of the great destinations in Myanmar. With a unique location in the middle of the lake and deep connections to the local community, Inle Heritage gives you special access to the sights, people and culture of the Venice of Asia. Thahara Inle Heritage is far away from all the other hotels. It is literally on the lake; nestled at the entrance of Inn Paw Khone, a little village close to the center of Inle Lake that is famous for its silk weaving. There are just six bungalows, each perched on stilts above the water and surrounded by the lake and the organic vegetable gardens. A beautiful wooden walkway connects the bungalows with the restaurant and the lounge. Designed by a French architect, and built using teak, hardwood and bamboo, each bungalow gives guests their own special place on the lake. The details, which include lightshades made of traditional Shan paper and curtains woven locally and incorporating a special Pa-o shawl pattern, celebrate local materials and artisans. Each bungalow has a private deck that is the perfect place to watch the spectacular sunsets. Built to be as environmentally sustainable as possible, each bungalow uses solar hot water and power.
