A hidden and unexpected gem
History & culture
The finest resort in the archaeological town of Mrauk U located in the northern Rakhine state of Burma is the Mrauk U Princess Resort.
Surrounded by mountain peaks, the Mrauk U River and endless paddy fields, this lush resort is set in its own private scenic grounds.
Twenty five exclusive spacious Village Houses have been built as traditional Rakhine homes decorated with local artefacts, raised on stilts with terraces overlooking the serene river, lush paddy fields or the pretty gardens.
Immerse yourself in the cultural heritage of the Rakhine ethnic group with local delicacies served at the Restaurant and by trying your hand at wood and stone carving with the resident craftsmen. Follow this with an indigenous spa treatment at the Princess's Spa to relax and unwind.
Three private boats can ferry you between Mrauk U and Sittwe along the Kaladan River. Be sure to explore the vibrant Buddhist temples and ruins in this archaeological treasure of a town.
We like: The traditionally styled Village Houses of the Rakhine tribes.
Best for: Relaxing Burmese break off the beaten track.
