Amazing Bagan Resort
Ranked #6 of 47 Hotels in Bagan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Although located outside Bagan itself and not close to the main sites we nevertheless enjoyed the relative quiet during our four day stay. A short taxi ride brought us to anywhere we wanted to go. Originally we had booked a horse and cart to show us the many pagodas, temples and stupas but when we told him where we were staying he was less than enthusiastic to drive his horse back and forth to Bagan and suggested we hire his brother's taxi instead.

We had read that there were several nice restaurants nearby but at the end of a long and tiring day touring we preferred to relax by the pool, enjoy a massage and eat dinner in the hotel restaurant. The food was good although the local menu was much better than the western food they offered. It was reasonably priced and we received excellent service from the wait staff. The reception staff was particularly helpful when we had had minor concerns and also when our prearranged taxi didn't arrive to take us to the airport. Many thanks!

Our deluxe room was on the third floor and although it was comfortable it wasn't as nice as we had expected for the price. The sheets were thin and badly worn in places. The floor was also worn and the bathroom fixtures needed to be updated. This was the only disappointment we had during our visit.

The grounds of the hotel were lovely and the pool area was a wonderful area to sit and relax. Refreshments were served from the outdoor bar. We really enjoyed our experience at Amazing Bagan and recommend it. Kudos to the friendly and efficient staff!

Room Tip: Ask for a recently renovated room.

Amazing Bagan Resort is located a leisurely 20 minute walk (along a shady, tree lined street) from Nyaung U. The grounds are beautifully kept, the pool is a god sent after a hot "temple outing". The staff is friendly and sincerely concerned about your well being. They try to accommodate you if at all possible. One day, when we arrived for breakfast 45 minutes early, they still managed to fulfill all of our wishes.
We stayed in one of the suites next to the pool. The room was spacious and well decorated. Everything was up to highest Western standards.
The only disappointment were the free bikes. They were free, alright, but too small even for a 5'10 person (180cm). We had to rent some bikes in Nyaung U, which was money-wise not a problem, but wasted some time. On the good side: We could park these "outside" bikes without problems at the resort.
All in all, we can definitely recommend this resort. The staff is just wonderful!

We stayed in the deluxe chalet facing the pool for two days, and were pleasantly surprised by the overall experience.

- First of all, the Amazing Bagan is a beautiful resort, decorated like a garden of eden with a large inviting swimming pool.
- Secondly, Our chalet was spaciously comfortable, and proved to be an excellent retreat after exploring the temples.
- Thirdly, the Staff were extremely attentive. Upon arriving at the resort, one of our duffel bags had a large tear, so we asked the staff to find an external vendor to help fix it. The next day, the bag was returned to us in impeccable order. Not only had the tear been stiched up, the vendor also mended other holes and rips. It cost us approx. USD5!
- The Amazing Bagan is located by Restaurant Street many choices for eating out.
- We also enjoyed the fact the it was very close to the airport, thus cutting down on transportation time. All in all, we would definitely stay here again.
- spa is good and relatively cheap.

We stayed for four nights and wished it was longer! The hotel is really lovely and set in attractive grounds. We made the most of the pool as we recovered from bike rides and walks in the area. We ate most meals here and enjoyed them all. The free puppet show was a joy, particularly as you can watch the puppeteers as the get completely involved in the show! Comfortable room and bed. Free bikes for exploring...there are a couple of stupas within a very short distance or its about 10-15 into Nyuang U and the temples and shops there.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The site is well maintained, the pool is beautiful, the breakfast buffet set up is quite nice, nice way to start the day on the outside patio. The overall architecture and style of the hotel is typical of Myanmar.
The hotel is located near the Old Bagan and is easily accessible. You can borrow a bike and do a short ride around to the nearby temples and pagodas.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable.

The Amazing Bagan Resort truly lives up to its name and we just loved the gentle, quiet atmosphere after Yangon. Our room was just gorgeous and the facilities everywhere were excellent, including breakfast and dining. It was too hot for bikes (40 degrees) so we took a horse and cart which the hotel organised for us and explored the wonderful surrounds. The hotel is a bit outside Bagan, so you need transport to go into town, but we did not find that an issue and we appreciated the peacefulness. Pool was fabulous and we also enjoyed a very good massage. All in all very relaxing and quite amazing!

Room Tip: We had a double room in the main hotel and it was large and very comfortable.

We stayed for two nights in this hotel in February 2013. It was always very pleasant to come back to Amazing Bagan Hotel after the day spent among Bagan temples. The hotel swimming pool was a very relaxing place. We enjoyed evening walks to Nyuangshwe restaurants and bars (about 15 minutes walk, well lighted and safe). One remark for golfers - there is an interesting picturesque golf course located several hundred meters from the hotel (pretty dry but what else would you expect during the dry season in Burma?)
