The name of the hotel, Thanakha Inle Hotel, refers to the traditional Burmese beauty secret: the Thanakha cream. This paste made with water and Thanakha tree sawdust is used by most women and men in Myanmar to protect their skin from the elements. This simple and yet efficient beauty product is applied on the cheeks daily and let yellow circles when dry. This yellow shade is the main color of our hotel.
To this beautiful and meaningful color, we added touches of turquoise, to link with our beautiful Inle Lake.
The hotel is about 35 minutes drive from national Heho Airport (Shan State), in Nyaung Shwe village. We are situated right on the canal with direct access to Inle Lake. This location allows you to discover the Lake lifestyle during the day and to walk at night to the surprising Nyaung Shwe village dotted with many local shops and restaurants.
