Stayed in the bungalow, which was clean and huge for 2 persons. The bathroom was spacious with a spa-like standing shower and bathtub. It looked much upgraded than the main bedroom, which had slightly dated but functional furnishings. Breakfast was great with many food selections - including Bagan snacks and live stations for eggs and noodles. The outdoor area was nicely surrounded with bougainvillea and the dining experience felt like a breakfast in the garden! I particularly enjoyed travelling on the road from the main entrance to the resort reception. Amongst the sparsity, the shady path was lined with trees on both sides. Very pleasant and tranquil!
This hotel is close to the airport and to Nyang U village. You can rent a electric scooter and go the the main street to have lunch and dinner. The general aspects of the hotel are great, nice swimming pool, super friendly and professional FO staff. And really good breakfast in a traditional Burma atmosphere. I love this place. Just one point: it's little far from temples. But this is not a problem with tuktuk or scooter
The resort is just amazing! We arrived early in the morning and they kindly let us check in early. The room is really nice with a comfy bed, the staff are super friendly and are always willing to provide all kinds of help. We hired ebike for three days (15,000 kyats for a full day), and tried massage here (massage is soso, not as amazing as other customers recommended). Overall I will rate it with 5 stars given the amazing service they provide here. Hopefully we can come back again!
The hotel is very old and has a major problem of doves which make a lot of noise, both in the morning and in the evening. Breakfast is poor. The hotel is located far from city center. The rooms are spacious. The hotel's manager was an honest and decent person who tried to make us feel good. The spa is very good.
From the minute I booked the hotel were fantastic with communication and I was able for us to book an airport transfer as there is no Grab in Bagan. This needs to be booked at least 3 days in advance and costs 7700K - slightly steep perhaps but completely worth it for us coming from an early flight. Takes around 10-15 mins to get to the hotel. Despite arriving super early, we were able to check-in to our beautiful bungalow straight away (after a welcome drink) and rent e-bikes to get around. These were of decent quality and just about last a full day of zooming around Bagan (with two of us on the bike). Cost is 15000K for 2 people on a single bike for a whole day (I think it's 10000K for 1 person on a single bike - was fairly baffled as to why it is more expensive for 2) which is probably more expensive than other areas, but again you're paying for quality, convenience, and the guarantee that someone from the hotel will come and collect the bike wherever you are if it runs out of charge. The hotel has wonderful staff who are all, without exception, extremely friendly and will go above and beyond. We had a small issue with the first e-bike which was immediately sorted without a quibble. The bungalow felt very private, and is super spacious and stylish with a gorgeous shower. The bed was comfortable and we slept extremely well. We even had a thanaka stick in the bathroom to make a DIY paste if required. Location wise, you definitely need the e-bike, but that was of no inconvenience to us as we were renting one each day anyway and we otherwise enjoyed the slight seclusion and tranquility of the location. I would highly recommend trying the spa treatments - there is a 30% discount between 1 and 7pm which is a ridiculously good deal. We had treatments each of the 3 nights we were there and Nyang Nyang and Ki Ki? (sorry about the spelling) were incredible and smoothing out knots. The only very mild issue we had was that for our room (and perhaps this was only an problem with our room), the door had gaps (>1cm) at the top and down the side which meant that mosquitoes could wander in. Luckily with it being dry season there weren't a huge number. We had our own mosquito net but there was nowhere to hang it above the bed, and when we asked at reception they could only offer a spray (which we weren't keen for as it would only be temporary + the chemicals never smell great). They are probably better prepared for this in the wet season. Overall this was a brilliant place to stay and experience Bagan. We only stayed for a few days as that is all we thought we would need, but one could easily spend an entire week there to balance out relaxing at the hotel and sightseeing.…
