The property itself is beautiful and quiet -- it's a few blocks off the main street. Our guesthouse was very clean, large, and comfortable (AC unit!). What really made all the difference was the WONDERFUL staff. We ate at Ruby True's kitchen for dinner and breakfast - the food was great and the service was impeccable. We also rented motorbikes...

Good thing: you have privacy in your own little cabine Could be better: it's old, sometimes a bit smelly and it isn't very clean. The (e)bikes aren't included, so you have to pay extra every time you rent them, that was a pity (and you will need them, because it's too far to walk to Old Bagan).

Set in a chilled garden setting, feeling quite tropical - It was all the little touches that made the difference here. Wah Wah (the manager) couldn't do enough to make you feel more welcome. Think of this as your home, she tells you when you arrive. After having cruised around on e-bikes in the dusty heat all day, there's nothing... More

After a long and dusty six hour ride from Mandalay, nothing was better than being greeted by WahWah and her lovely staff with cool towels, juice, and warm smiles. The tone of our stay was set from the beginning! The hotel itself has lovely manicured grounds--the walk from the main building to our room included lots of shaded paths and... More

We stayed in Ruby True Hotel for a few days, in order to explore the amazing Bagan plains. A very good location to start from, and the delightful owner will arrange your transport so you can make your own way. Bikes can be rented from the front porch, and she can arrange a horse and cart as well. The hotel... More

The reviews we'd read convinced us to choose this hotel, and we're so glad we did - it really is like home away from home. Our room was everything we needed, with an efficient air con and comfortable facilities. The gardens are lovely to meander through with tall trees and beautiful flowers. (We had a lot of rain during our... More

We felt right at home from the moment we arrived. Wawa was so kind and welcoming, we just loved staying here. She helped arrange bikes for us, told us where to go for sunrise and sunset, told us good spots to eat, and made us feel like part of the Ruby True family. The rooms were great for the price,...

I can't add a huge amount to what other travellers have written below about the warm welcome you get from Wawa and her team to the oasis that is Ruby True! The rooms are in bamboo chalets channeling traditional Burmese homes but with comforts including air-con, a fridge, and UK three-pin plug sockets. The perfectly manicured gardens are a great...

A beautiful spot with chalet style rooms surrounding gorgeous gardens. Good breakfast (which was arranged on the lawn one morning which was really special) and a decent restaurant if you didn't want to venture further. Quite magical to see the air balloons drift over in the morning too. It is right at the edge of the village but was an... More

There are many reasons I loved staying at Ruby True Hotel, most of all the kindness, generosity and warmth of Wawa and her team. We were looked after so well. Wawa made great suggestions, gave us detailed advice and helped us carefully plan our trips to the temples. We were in Bagan during April - the hottest and dustiest time... More
