My boyfriend and I booked this hotel for 4 days, and our stay exceeded all expectations. Except from being a beautiful, spacious hotel, the people working there was the absolute highlight of our 1 month stay in Myanmar. We specially appreciated being around the Moe Moe and Kyaw Kyaw, so much that we decided to stay 16 days in the... More

This hotel is located in 'Old Bagan' and is literally surrounded by temples. Just across from the pool is a small temple and across the road are plenty more. This makes wander around and exploring the place really easy. There are also a number of small restaurants just down the road so you don't have to look too far for... More

This hotel is in old Bagan and has choice for cheaper and expensive/luxury rooms at your choice. The swimming pool is nice and the huge garden offers their own big temple. Diner at the terrace is romantic and good. At the oppositie of the hotel you can rent bicycles and scooters and you can walk straight into the temple area.... More

We looked at one of the cheapest rooms first and it was very sad looking and depressing, also hot-feeling, so we went for a mid-priced room which was a lot nicer. Great size, and a good bathroom. The pools were a highlight, giving a chance to relax on the loungers and cool off in the very hot middle of the... More

This hotel is a great location. You can rent moto bikes directly from the hotel to explore all of the pagodas. There are two very good and very inexpensive restaurants next door. The pool is very inviting after a long and hot day of exploring. The breakfast is fine perhaps on the simple side. Rooms are clean, spacious although nothing... More

The location of the hotel is amazing and so is the compound. The pool is inviting. The breakfast spread is decent as well (disappointed because we expected better from a big hotel like this one). However, they have a few strange rules. Even if you pay for an extra bed in a room, the breakfast for the 3rd person is... More

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
