This resort was the best of our trip. Exceptional service. Fantastic spa and pool. The grounds are beautiful, gardens large trees, view of mountains and river. We were there in the hot season and the pool, breeze really cooled us off. At dusk great display of bats (from a distance). Located in Old Bagan beautiful pagodas built in 1st century.... More

We really enjoyed our stay here in a deluxe bungalow, river view. Lovely pool area, landscaped gardens. Breakfast excellent. There is so much to see in old Bagan, it's good to come back here at the end of the day and look at the river. Dinner here was also very nice. Room was very large and outside deck area great...

Stayed in a bungalow, air conditioning was great, food at the restaurant and service was good, we were too busy to enjoy the beautiful pool. Great setting on the river and among the temples, wish we had more time to explore the facility. Would recommend this resort

Truly perfectly set by the river. A very nice restaurant with one of the biggest Bougainvillea I have seen. The rooms are nice, comfortable and very clean but I can't help that it gives an impression of being a bit cheaper. Try out the SPA with a relaxing massage if you find some time between all temple visits.

Our initial selection of a deluxe classic room was a large boring room several minutes walk from the pool and restaurant. A change to a smaller plain bungalow with nice landscaping and near the pool and restaurant was a big improvement for only $10 more. A must! The bed and AC were good and the food was nice for us...

We stayed in September which I assume is the shoulder season - very hot but still some rain. We had been determined to find a hotel with a pool in which to escape the heat and the one here is spectacular, it has amazing views across the river. All in all the hotel is beautiful to look at and explore,... More

Our small tour group stopped by here for lunch while touring. The lunch was delicious and served with a flourish in, I assume, traditional laquerware cones, see photographs. The view from the restaurant was stunning, of the pool, grounds, bungalows. Service was excellent, the food very good. Wish ewe had more time to explore, but had to get back on... More

Stayed 2 nights while in Bagan - lovely property with the most stunning view. Rooms: Stayed at a villa quite far out from the lobby area, secluded and peaceful but the walk got a bit much at night... Service: Kind and friendly staff - check in took a while and it got slightly frustrating but they were helpful nonetheless. Overall:... More

I'm doing an expat job in Singapore, and me and my family have traveled extensively in Asia. As we have 3 small children, we're very picky as to where we stay, mostly Western chains. We stayed in the river view suite for 3 days, a few steps away from the wonderful pool. They also have bungalow and suites farther away... More

The best aspect of this hotel is the lovely gardens complete with hollyhocks and nasturtiums running down to the large pool overlooking the river. The rooms are in prefab-type square bungalows, split into four rooms with unnecessarily large verandas. These are large but fairly Spartan and despite the space, there was the usual minuscule wardrobe so we had to festoon... More
