4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Having read some of the other reviews, I was a little worried about this hotel. But overall, my experience was very pleasant. Granted, I had been upgraded to a Deluxe River View Suite, so my room was just lovely and had a terrific view. It is very convenient and the setting is just gorgeous. As with most places in Myanmar,... More

As noted in prior TA reviews, the riverside setting cannot be beat! The rooms are clean but a bit dated and the food is underwhelming. But the service is gracious and attentive and you are close to everything. The spa/massage was ok, not spectacular. If I returned to Bagan, I might try a different place...with updated rooms/baths and more interesting... More

We are supposed to have a 3 nights booking from tomorrow in this hotel and today we learned from our travel agent that the hotel lost our reservation. As a result we can only have a downgraded room from the one that is in our voucher! Not a very good introduction I would say. It was very difficult to get... More

Bagan is one of the most beautiful places on Earth, and the hotel is quite nice. The place is scenic, just on riverfront and actually having in front of it a stoopa- you can enjoy sunsets from a room or even dining. The rooms are very spacious are decorated amazingly and very tasty in colonial style and you receive some... More

This resort is located right on the river near all the temples. In fact there are many stupas right in the property.The gardens were stunning. The main building is very beautiful with an outdoor dining area overlooking the river and spectacular pool. Nice comfortable lounges and lots of towels for swimming. The breakfast was great and we ate there two... More

I would still choose this hotel in Bagan for its beautiful grounds, view of the river, and pool. The rooms are ok but a bit old. I stayed here eight years ago and had not noticed that. Four rooms per bungalow, two with river views, two with garden views. I do not recommend paying extra for river views. I never... More

A friend and I stayed for two nights in January. The grounds are gorgeous! The rooms are very nice size with comfortable beds and nice hot showers. Breakfast is a full breakfast buffet with western and local options. The pool is beautiful and the views of the river are outstanding. Dinner at the restaurant was very good, but extremely expensive.... More

The hotel location is one of the loveliest we have ever stayed in. The gardens and swimming pool stretch down to the Irrawaddy River and the sunset is stunning. Meals can be taken on the outdoor dining area just watching the boats slowly flow by. Magical. The hotel accommodation is mainly in bungalows divided into 4 units. You can have... More

My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights. The room was very spacious and I loved the patio with lounge chairs. The grounds of the property are beautiful!! I did swim in the pretty pool on afternoon and we ate dinner on property 1 night. Dinner was very good, as was breakfast each morning. Location is perfect for sightseeing... More

WE spent 2 nights at this resort while travelling around in Myanmar. This resort is very spacious (so are the rooms!) and the view of the Ayeyarwady was awesome from here. Very friendly staff, great breakfast and very clean, serene place to spend some time. Beautiful swimming pool (which we didn't use because of lack of time) and extensive gardens.... More
