the brand new bagan lodge is a beauty from the minute you pull up. the open air lobby and pool area is really spectacular but welcoming at the same time with all of the warm wood and marble. what set this place apart, for me, however, was the people. the level of service is comparable to what you find at any ritz or four seasons, but instead of it having that level of 'corporate professionalism' that you get when you stay at a ritz or four seasons, it has a charm and innocence about it. whether that's because it's only been there for such a short time or because the people that are taking care of you are mostly locals from the surrounding areas of bagan/myanmar, i don't know, but they are truly happy that you're there with them, and you really feel that they are happy to take care of you in any way they can. their smiles were always so warm and friendly and they 'lit up' as soon as we walked by. my sister and i stayed with them for three days and we were really sad to leave when our time was up!
