Loved this place! A spacious and cool villa in the gardens and although we did not have a river view, a few steps away was the lovely outlook over pool, gardens and the river. There are no restaurants nearby but its an easy and cheap taxi ride to New Bagan for an evening out. The restaurant is elegant and a... More

This resort is an unexpected great place to stay! I had initially selected another more advertised resort at Bagan but I was finally sent by my travel agent to this one at last moment due to a vacancy issue. Fortunately for me as I really enjoyed this place! At first, the view from the hotel facilities is fantastic, on the... More

We stayed three nights in a river view suite (villa #1), and it was lovely. We had a large sitting area, four poster bed, and giant bathroom with a soaking tub and nice spa products. Our room was on the 2nd floor and had a veranda overlooking the river. The staff was super helpful, and the setting simply can't be... More

We were just a couple of nights at this hotel. Has a stunning setting on the Ayerwaddy river with great sunsets. Pool is lovely, wish we'd had time to enjoy it. Food was okay, not great but there are plenty of local places not far away so not a problem. Breakfast was good though with an extensive buffet. Our Room... More

The location and the view from the resort is terrific. This hotel is located in the Old Bagan. There are some temples and pagodas within the walking distance. The room is spacious but very basic. It is absolutely not luxury, maybe forty years ago. We stayed for three nights and we are forced to buy the US$95 NYE's dinner. The... More

An expensive hotel with a terrace with a stunning view over the river. Clean, big bungalows, good beds, comparatively good wifi. Breakfast on the terrace is a treat, great buffet. The swimming pool is big. Ideal to take a break after a dusty discovery mission. The food is good. However, we felt ripped off paying the same we would at... More

Our tour company booked this resort. Other reviews said it was a good option but we were very impressed by the resort. Located on the river it has a lovely deck and pool area to relax around after long days visiting the magnificent Bagan sites. Food OK, service fantastic, rooms more than adequate and a good size. Would stay here... More

The location by the river with gorgeous evening and early morning views, the rooms and the gardens between them, breakfast is great and the decor is very nice. Internet is a little sketchy with access only at the lobby.

We stayed here for 3 nights in late November 2014 in a De-luxe River View Room. It has taken me weeks to reflect on our experience so that I offer a balanced view. The site does indeed command a spectacular view over the Irrawaddy which serves as the backdrop to a spacious dining terrace and pleasant pool area. The hotel... More
