Inle Lake is famous for its farm produce and its fishermen, so it is unsurprising that Inthar cuisine is also well regarded. The wider Shan state is Myanmar’s culinary hub, and our menus, which change daily and reflect seasonal availability revolve these two cultural influences, with our own creative twists.

Our chef, Than New Oo, knows the lake and exactly where to find its best produce. Almost all our ingredients are sourced from lakeside markets or grown on site. We are also fans of wild foods and regularly forage from around our inlet.


Choose a table beneath our Shan paper lanterns inside the hall, on our lakeside decks, or go further afield on one of our unique dining experiences.

Guests and outside bookings are accepted outside of peak times of year.

Please ask to meet Than New Oo on arrival to discuss how our meals are prepared or make special requests.


Our low slung and playful bar offers the hotel’s our signature creations from Princess Sours or Floating Gardens as well as classic mixes, with seasonal and local mixers. Our bar staff like a challenge – ask them for something off the list and see.


Challenge our bar staff to give you something original and off-menu or to recreate your favourite cocktail. New cocktails and mocktails are often coming up, with seasonal and locally inspired creations supplementing the menu.

From the snug bar to the romantic decking over the lake, it is the perfect place to kick back and meet fellow residents.


Our temperature controlled cave is stocked with a changing selection of new and old world wines attended by our resident wine expert, Pyone Cho.

We are pleased to offer the complete selection from Inle’s very own wine producer, Red Mountain Estate, whose vineyard is located on the hills to the east of the hotel.
