Perfect place to stay in bagan, Clean and spacious room with minibar, tv with a few movie and news channels, kettle and safebox. The view from the restaurant is breathtaking and the food quite good (a little expensive) the pool area including poolside bar is great. Old bagan is also the perfect location to hire a bike and explore... make sure you check out star beam and be kind to animals restaurants while you are in the area (a short bikeride away)

A great hotel choice in Bagan. Bungalows dotted amongst the beuatiful, well maintained grounds made for a very relaxing stay, especially after long days of sightseeing.

The staff are super friendly. Breakfast, and other meals, are served in the gardens by the river. The included breakfast buffet is fine to set you up for a day of touring but isn't the best in terms of quality. Also had dinner there which was fine and, though a little pricier, was still reasonable for a nice hotel. A few of the staff have limited English which can making ordering a little tricky but they will get someone over who is more proficient. The staff were very helpful when my partner got sick.

The rooms were clean and comfortable and there was free wifi throughout the complex which was fine (apart from the last morning). The swimming pool area was lovely and sufficient beds though it may be tough to find one in the shade during hot afternoons! There is also a pool bar service.

There is also an underground spanear the pool which has reasonably priced massages. A one hour Thai massage was $17 and very relaxing.

Would definitely stay here again if in Bagan.

Room Tip: Most rooms will be good, try to get one near the swimming pool

This is a wonderful retreat after the amazing sights of Bagan.The whole area is absolutely fascinating but a little exhausting,and to come back to this peaceful and delightful hotel is a pleasure.We stayed in a chalet with great views over the river,it was clean and well presented if not exactly luxurious.The outdoor dining area under the enormous tree and facing directly onto the river is idyllic even if the entertainment is a little worthy! The staff,as in most hotels in Burma, are the real stars.They seem to genuinely want to please,nothing is too much trouble.We hired bikes for a day from the hotel and had a fantastic day.Strongly recommended.

Room Tip: A river view is nice.

This is a wonderful hotel to slow down a touring pace. The grounds and pool are lovely and service very friendly. Our cabin overlooked the Irrawaddy River with morning fishermen and sunset boats; what a treat. The room was spacious and very clean, if not a bit tired. Dining was on a terrace by the river under a beautiful tree. The breakfast buffet was generous - Asian or European, with plentiful fruit - and dinner good. Dinners were accompanied by local music and Burmese dancing and puppets..

We stayed in the superior bungalows in September 2012. The gardens were extremely well maintained and on most days, weather permitting breakfast was served under a magnificent tree otherwise it was served indoors. The view overlooking the Ayerwaddy River was amazing.

We stayed for 5 nights and the pool helped a great deal in cooling us down after trudging through numerous pagodas in hot temperatures. As it wasn't the peak period, on most days we had the pool to ourselves. I also treated myself to a Myanmar massage at the spa for $17.

The breakfast was enjoyable, consisting of Myanmar dishes and also some European choice. The cakes were baked on the premises and they were indeed delicious. Staff were extremely attentive and kind and even suggested opening the restaurant early for breakfast to suit our early departure. We declined and was offered packed breakfast to take with us.

The rooms were not that spacious if used as a triple. The bathroom look a bit tired and was in need of some renovation. The rooms were made up with flowers on one of the days, which was a very sweet touch. In front of the hotel, there are a number of taxis for hire. We even managed to secure a 7 seater van to take us around Bagan for the day from one of the taxi guys. We spent one evening watching the sunset from the hotel and it was one of the best sunsets we experienced in Myanmar. I would definitely go back to Thande.

We stayed in this hotel in September 2012 for 3 nights. The highlight of the place is the restaurant under a giant tree, where they serve breakfast and dinner; and they have a nice puppet show and local musicians at dinner time. Food is OK, nothing spectacular and a bit on expensive side. Rooms are spacious and clean but the AC is positioned right opposite the beds and was blowing cold air in my face all night. Swimming pool was a bonus especially after a hot day exploring Bagan.

After an exausting day in Bagan. Nothing better that having a cold drink and splash down into this hotel pool (even if you are not a guest) . Rooms are big and clean enought, they do them twice a day and beds are decorated with orchids. Personal are hepfull and kind.

Room Tip: Have alook first to the bungalows and try to take ono near the swimming pool.
