Golden Island Cottages,
Myanmar, Lake Inle
Info : Golden Island Cottages
Golden Island Cottages are a pair of bungalow resorts perched over the waters of the magnificent Inle Lake, one of Burma’s most beautiful destinations.
Both resorts have spacious, comfortable, wooden cabanas offering peaceful haven in the Shan Mountains. With en-suite bathrooms, hot water and private balconies, the rooms ensure you will have a pleasant stay in Inle and have your basic needs more than taken of.
Conveniently placed for exploring the area, the Golden Island Cottages are welcoming and spacious, with great views of the surrounding lake. Particularly breathtaking at sunrise and sunset, the resorts offer hearty cuisine. Golden Island Cottages 1 is ideally placed for an excursion to one of the local ‘five day market’ sites. Golden Island Cottages 2 occupies a more tranquil position near the centre of the lake.
Neither resorts have air-conditioning, but nights are generally cool and you will need a blanket more than a cooler. Other facilities include tea and coffee in the rooms, wifi internet in the receptions and extremely friendly staff. Food is a variety of traditional Burmese dishes and Chinese-influenced cuisine, with an excellent range of exotic fruit juices on offer. The Shan State is one of the country’s most fertile, and the fruits and vegetables make for healthy and varied culinary treats. Inle Lake also has a unique agricultural system of floating farms, themselves an attraction of the region.
The Inle Lake offers a great range of excursions and activities and much of your time here will be spent exploring markets, temples, pagodas and floating villages. The Golden Island Cottages will provide a peaceful and welcoming home to return to following a day of water-borne exploration.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.

My favourite [guide] was Aung in Mandalay. We only had him for one day, but he was determined to show us as much of Mandalay as possible in the time allotted, was obviously very proud of his city and country and was a pleasure to be with. He even took us to meet his uncle who was the Abbott of one of the many monasteries.
