This place is just amazing. It is a non profit that trains local people to work in the hotel industry. Looking to be sustainable, currently a percentage of income comes from people staying there.

The nonprofit also has a small aquarium where you can learn about local fish species, some of them threatened, and they’re also part of an effort to bring Burmese cats back to the country and have a section where you can go see the cats.

There are day-visitors, but there is a clear separation so they cannot access the area where guests stay.

Very relaxing, great service, would stay here again.

My only dislike is that it is hard to get out and do things on your own because you are surrounded by the lake, so you are quite dependent on the boats and what you can negotiate with them.

This is a beautiful, jungle-like facility built on stilts overlooking the lake with a hotel, nice gift shop, local information and a Burmese cat sanctuary. The covered terrace restaurant on top gives great views of the lake and is a very pleasant place to get out of the sun and relax. Lunch was typical Burmese and very, very good. Highly recommended for a stop or stay.

The restaurant in Inle Heritage has a unique feature in serving breakfast - they make their own jam for pancake and bread. It was the first time I came across Tomato Jam. It has a good favor and good taste. The service in this restaurant is prompt and Shan food served is great.

Fabulous concept and fabulous hotel, food, services, room, etc. At the bottom end of the lake near to al the weavers, silversmiths, boating, umbrella making, cheroot making. Everything is organic with their own gardens + green waste treatment + providing water for the community + most importantly, this is a training center for 40 students for the hospitality industry. Incredible service. The rooms are like a spa. Each is open-air and self-contained on stilts with a deck overlooking the canal and gardens. We ditched our reservations at another hotel and forfeited a night so we could come here. Worth every penny. Could easily have stayed 3 nights. Our favorite place in Myanmar.

We went to this centre on Inle Lake to see their Burmese Cat sanctuary, and stayed for what turned out to be a very tasty lunch . Visits to the cats of the four Burmese colours are commendably limited so that the cats can rest (which they do seem to enjoy doing). Their attendants are very knowledgeable and their anecdotes add considerably to ones understanding of this great project.
