Myanmar’s Sanctum Inle Resort Celebrates New Year with Water Experience

Thingyan Promotion offers travelers chance to soak up Inle Lake at its best.

Inle Lake, Burma, March 16, 2017 --( As the Burmese count down the days before the Thingyan Festival, a traditional celebration involving a lot of water splashing just before Myanmar’s New Year, Sanctum Inle has rolled out an opportunity for travelers to make the most of the occasion.

The Thingyan Promotion, applicable for stays in April, allows local residents to start off a new year with a new adventure and for travelers to garner insights into the region's rich and diversified culture.

Priced at US$ 370 for up to two people, the deal features a two-night stay in a Cloister Deluxe room, daily breakfast, complimentary airport transfers, a set lunch or dinner, half day tour of Inle Lake, 10% off spa treatments and laundry bills, and free use of the Wi-Fi, swimming pool, bicycles and other upscale facilities.

The Thingyan is originated from the Buddhist version of a Hindu myth. The water festival signals the end of the hot and dry season and includes a slew of activities all over the country. The most anticipated part of this holiday is throwing and splashing water, creating a fun and merry atmosphere. This year, Thingyan is celebrated from April 12 to 16 just before the New Year’s period from April 17 to 21.

The 94-room Sanctum Inle Resort is the first upscale hotel to come on line at Inle Lake and officially debuted October last year.

Its The Refectory Restaurant serves an outstanding selection of Western and Eastern cuisine with a focus on Shan delicacies and Burmese must-eats. Part-bar, part-lounge The Cloister Bar stocks a wide array of drinks and cocktails.

The swimming pool with tranquil views overlooking the lake and mountains is another drawcard. There is also a library for book lovers and a business center for business travelers on the go.
