Owned and operated by the Apple Tree Group, Sanctum Inle Resort inspires contemplation through its off-the-beaten-path location and architectural flourishes that invoke monastic traditions. This 94-room resort on Myanmar’s famed Inle Lake is a gateway to some of Asia’s most fascinating markets, distinctive pagodas and remarkable stupas. While the rooms range in size from 40 to 150 square meters, all feature lofty ceilings, natural wood floors, plush beds, air-conditioning and cable TV. The 107-seat Refectory offers a full complement of Chan and Western dishes, and Cloister Bar, an elegant hangout, boasts a selection of Myanmar-brewed beers, international wines and Cuban and Dominican cigars. The resort’s Chapter House is a quiet venue with books and board games that can be transformed into a meeting space.
