The obvious reason for the trek up and down is to see the balancing phenomenon of the Golden Rock pagoda. If you manage to circumnavigate the steep uneven terrain after sunset without the aid of a torch, there is a peaceful haven midway down named Golden Rock Hotel. Great views, good breakfast, clean comfortable rooms and a reasonable price rendered...

We left golden rock at about 550pm when the sun sets, there are no more bus/pick ups to bring us to this hotel. So the guide says we need to walk down the mountain to go to this hotel which is at the mid mountain. There are no lights during the walk down the slopes. Ok for youngsters but quite...

There was a nice greeting when we arrived after having walked down in the dark from the Golden Rock. The room was large and there was a spacious shower and toilet. The aircon worked though one needed to master the switch. Breakfast was OK but rather limited. Dinner was OK but relatively expensive. The location in the jungle was very...

If I am allowed to say only one word about this hotel, I would say "overhyped!" We naturally went to Golden Rock first and after enjoying sunset, climbed down to the hotel. There were no sign boards, not in English at least. The check out time is 9.00 am. Breakfast is served only during 6.00 to 9.00 am. So, our...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Golden Rock Hotel is a vantage point commanding unique breath taking views of the surrounding mountain ranges and spectacular sunsets – sights that will leave a lasting impression. Uniquely situated in an idyllic setting amid lush tropical vegetation and age-old rocks, the Golden Rock Hotel is ideal for relaxation and meditation on your trip to Kyaiktiyo.Just a 45-minute hike to the Kyaiktiyo Pagoda (Golden Rock Pagoda), the Golden Rock Hotel is one of the only properties offering international class accommodation and facilities to travelers.Accommodation is in individual chalets strategically placed on more than three acres of wooded terrain on Mt. Kyaiktiyo. The distinctive shape of each building resembles the shape of a hermit’s hat, taking full advantage of different elevations and architecturally designed to assure privacy for each room. This hotel is a perfect hideout, far-away from the busy city, yet it is located only 2 miles away from the world famous “Golden Rock Pagoda” which is distinguished as one of the most awe-inspiring places in the world.We are the proud recipient of the international “Millennium Golden Award” for Commercial Prestige for Customers’ Satisfaction and the “Green Standard Hotels Award” by the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism. Taking pride in our eco-friendly and sustainable operating systems we strive for a “Greener Myanmar”. A few of our eco-friendly efforts would include the mini-dam that was especially built on the premises for collecting natural mountain spring water for the exclusive use of the hotel. Our garden thrives in biodiversity consisting of blooming orchids, many varieties of butterflies and our own organic fruit patch. Some of these fruits are placed on your table to offer the best meal experience.Golden Rock Hotel has been the most preferred amongst visitors to this sacred site for our service, facilities and our ability to go above and beyond our guests’ expectations. ... more   less
