– Aureum Palace Resort Inle Lake –
The Aureum Palace Resort located in Mine Thauk Village in Inle was incredible – one of the nicest we’ve ever stayed at. Our room was actually a large separate villa/cabin (1080 sq. ft.) that sat over the water, was definitely the largest we’ve ever stayed in. This resort is a large facility that has 65 units that are spread out over several acres (some on the waterfront some on land).
From the huge breakfast spreads to the dinners we had, the restaurant here was very good. Overall we had a wonderful stay here. Our biggest disappointment?… only staying here for two nights!
On our arrival, we were greeted by the mythical Kinnara & Kinnari.
In Buddhist mythology, Kinnara is a paradigmatic lover, a celestial musician, half-human, and half-bird. Kinnari, the female counterpart is depicted as half woman and half-bird creature. It is believed they are everlasting lovers and never to separate, eternally husband and wife. The elaborate costumes of a Kinnara and Kinnari are stunning, the butterfly wings are attached to the arms and back of the dancers so they can be opened and closed.
