This is a lovely hotel with beautiful grounds and a great pool to cool down in after a day in the dust and heat of Bagan.
We had a cabin room (no 648), which was very large and comfortable but a bit dark and was ideally located right beside the pool. Breakfast was good. We ate in the restaurant on out first and it was ok but expensive. There was a puppet show on which was fun. The other 2 nights we walked into Old Bagan and both restaurants we ate at were great. It is a 10-15 min walk. Make sure you take a torch as the road is pitch black There are horse and carts just outside the hotel if you don't fancy the walk!
Overall we had a lovely time and would recomend this hotel.
