Stayed here for 4 nights in low season. It was lovely and quiet, often with the refreshing pool to ourselves after a hot day of sightseeing. Pool was really so welcome after the hot sandy plains of Bagan and I was so glad we stayed somewhere with a pool.
Rooms were lovely, shower fantastic, loved the waterfall effect and black stone floor. Beautifully presented rooms, the only comment being maybe another light would have been helpful as our room was quite dark. Slept so well in super comfy beds.
Wifi generally good although best around the pool area itself. Breakfast was plentiful, enjoyed delicious little fruit salads with mint, fresh yoguhurt and amazing omelettes amongst lots of other things. Staff highly attentive and very sweet.
We ate dinner 2 nights at the hotel and ate out the other 2 nights. I was a bit worried about the location being "far from the action" at first, as mentioned by some, but we ended up being very glad to be in New Bagan, away from more backpacker Ngaung U and Old Bagan, which had a lot of vendors selling tourist stuff, which became quite wearing after time. New Bagan was much more "local" and the hotel is about 20 min bike ride to Old Bagan, so it worked out great. The hotel even gave us free bike hire as well, which was an extra bonus - probably due to low season I guess? Also access to the much less quieter temples is actually very close to the hotel if you take the back (tarmac and decent) road - a real bonus as you can have a whole area of temples much to yourselves.
A lovely stay! Thank you to the excellent staff at Blue Bird.
