The hotel is in a great location in Bagan. Don't go for the standard rooms as they are very mediocre with some being extremely mosquito infested. Food and entertainment in the evenings by the poolside was good and breakfast was also an outdoor patio affair.

This hotel was a very welcome surprise! Looks great, rooms nice, two pools, spa, restaurant good, a little crowded at breakfast. Places to eat outside the hotel if you wanted . There are several bike and moped hire shops for temple hunting too. Well worth a visit.

Location was great - hotel was next to a stretch of bars/restaurants, which made it convenient for dining out after a long day of temple hopping! Property compound was large, each room was designed as a standalone house or a chalet style, and they had 2 swimming pools + restaurant on location. The standard room might be considered a little...

Great rooms. Modern, very clean. Nice pool and outside area. Wifi not great in rooms but good in lobby etc. Breakfast good with choice. Good location for Temples etc. Overall hard to fault and can't imagine there are many better nearby.

Rooms were nice and its obviously trying to be 4*, but the service in restaurant/bar was just not up to standard. Not suggesting by European 4*service, but we must have waited over half an hour for a drinks bill which was wrong twice and the bar was by the pool but the waiter had to go somewhere else in the...

Lovely place in bagan. A great location too. It was a little dark in the evening around the hotel. So a torch was needed. Great scenic views of temples in the distance. Also a great bike shop with resturant a couple of yards away. The best way to travel around bagan.

First of all, the location of the hotel is absolutely perfect. We took the boat from Mandalay and were brought to the hotel by taxi. Its situated on the road to Old Bagan (which is overrated and most of al dull), just a short ride away from the temples. Within walking distance, theres a few nice restaurants and a e-bike...

The hotel may be nice, but it's staff still needs to learn a lot to be able to provide a customer with satisfaction. During a day we had a break in sightseeing. After spending some time at the pool, we handed over the room key to the member of a front desk staff. And we continued exploring the area. In...

I stayed here for two nights in Bagan. The room was spacious and clean and the bed was comfortable. The hotel staffs were friendly, helpful and attentive. The wifi is fast and efficient. Very nice pool and the swimming pool is clean. Many choices in buffet breakfast. I really loved the Umbra Hotel. Excellent place! Definitely recommend it!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel Umbra Bagan is located at Wet Kyi Inn village, mid-way between Old Bagan and the City Nyaung U. Old Bagan is one of the most significant archeological sites in the world which rose to glory as capital of the First Kingdom of Myanmar in the 11th century. The Hotel Umbra Bagan is closer to major tourist attractions like the famous Shwezi Gon Pagoda and Anandar Temple. The beauty of ancient Bagan can be seen early in the morning and be explored simply from the hotel's doorstep. After guests spend the day biking around pagoda in heat and dust they can enjoy our two swimming pools. Also the Hotel Umbra Bagan offers a pleasant quiet surrounding at night with its 5 acres of beautifully landscaped garden. ... more   less
