Thiripyitsaya Resort is more of a retreat resort nestled amongst the ancient Bagan temples and stupas. I would the resort to be comfortable and well appointed but far too basic for what it wanted for a night stay.
Perhaps overly care-free with naming its category of rooms, we got a 'Villa' for a little shying from USD300 a night is a double storey building with a room that comes with a sizeable balcony and a nice quiet view of the vegetated garden and lake.
Amenities are very basic with poor drainage in the shower, after our first night, the drainage in the shower started to kick back a dreadful smell...
Having said that, i decided to eat in the second night, dinner for 2, a bottle of nice Red, 2 course dinner each with coffee for approx USD 87 if not bad and came with a great evening open-air deck ambience with no extra charge!!
I have no doubt the cost for rooms in Myanmar will continue to escalate as tourist up-surge through the roof... already in one year from a tad over 500K annual arrivals previously, this past year saw over 1M arrivals and little to no increase in rooms inventory... am sure the prices will go sky-high and crash if operators don't upgrade their offerings !!
All in all... a good stay but could be soooo much better... its after all, now 2013 !!
