Malikha Lodge

Malikha Lodge is situated in Northern Kachin State, Myanmar’s greenest and most remote state. Access to our lodge is a fifteen-minute drive from the small frontier town of Putao. Formally known as Fort Hertz, Putao was one of the British Empire's most remote outposts. During the Second World War, even the Japanese were unable to conquer this remote and isolated area. Today, Putao remains completely cut off from the outside world by millions of acres of subtropical rainforest and jagged peaks. The only reliable access is by flight into the Putao airstrip during the cool dry season from October to April. Home to a myriad of different cultures and religions, its reputation as a land of old style adventure and discovery is rivaled only by the warmness of its welcome.

 

Malikha Lodge's luxury does not disappoint. Spread over 16 acres, a main lodge, ten bungalows and a spa are tucked away amid bamboo and woods on a bluff overlooking the Nam Lang River. Designed by Denniston, a Malaysian firm that has built many hotels for Amanresorts, the main lodge has walls draped with Jim Thompson silks, and the bungalows feature 400-gallon teak hot tubs. A Swiss chef who studied at a Michelin starred restaurant cooks the meals, and the head of the spa used to massage the likes of Nicole Kidman and Cate Blanchett. For every guest there are four staff. Two elephants are available for jungle treks.

 

Each bungalow is a spacious living area centered upon an enormous handcrafted teak bathtub. Placed discreetly amongst towering bamboo trees, one has the feeling of total privacy and relaxation. A custom made fireplace next to the bath completes the sense of indulgence and luxury, and also provides warmth for the private daybeds outside, where views of distant mountains can be enjoyed through the foliage.
