Surely the best hotel on the Mount
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 29 Aug 2019
The hotel has a fantastic location and a breathtaking view. The common areas are very nice and the staff is qualified.
Some defects are unfortunately present: the wifi only in the common parts, the pool is not very clean and not adequate to the size of the resort, the rooms are clean but too dated to offer a real pity comfort!

We found this place breathtaking. Beautifully couched in its wooded mountain environment, the cabin gave the impression of being in a treehouse. Captivating views extend across a vast valley, with famed golden monastery, perched on its improbable rocky pillar, rising in the foreground. Mists occasionally swirl round making you think of the spirits said to dwell on Mt Popa.
The resort staff were helpfull, charming and professional. There was considerable attention to detail in the clean well appointed cabin. The architecture and decor show fine design taste,and the layout of wooden walkways serves to respect the natural environment.
Another highlight was the food. Top quality. We used the Spa and pool and these continued the delightful experience that was our stay here.
Don't miss it!

It was a very hot day. We had just visited the adjacent Mt Popa Monastery where the metal roof over the steps cannot keep you cool. We reached the Mt Popa resort by car and we were immediately enchanted by the peacefulness and the breathtaking beauty of the place. We had a delightful (light) lunch of salads, sitting on the terrace, enjoying the magnificent view. Our teenage son had the pesto with prawns and pasta. The portion was generous and the taste authentic. Our son also had a delicious fresh fruit juice whilst my husband and I enjoyed a great Sauvignon blanc from Myanmar. The service was impeccable. We started considering the idea of staying in the hotel for a few days. We could process the contrast between this idyllic place and the rough neighbouring monastery, where we had made a donation of a few thousand Kyats. We started reading about the owner of the resort, who turned out to be one of the richest men in Asia. We then wondered why he would not invest some of his immense wealth in the local economy. More precisely why could he not improve the facilities at the monastery so that the pilgrims and tourists could be better protected from the heat (and monkey droppings). Such a good deed would be helpful to all and would definitely bring more customers to the resort, who would undoubtedly return and stay for longer - including our humble selves. It would be good for the business, the local economy and the afterlife.

I stayed one night here and got upgraded to a lovely room closer to the pool and restaurant. This resort is beautifully maintained and designed to make you feel a sense of peace. Great for sunset or sunrise with the monastery in the distance. Food was hit or miss - good cheesecake, bland pizza. Nice selection for breakfast. Wi-Fi only available in the restaurant or lobby. Staff was friendly although I think they should be trained to have more knowledge about transport options to cities in the general region, or at least be resourceful enough to find the information. I was trying to go Monywa and the cheapest they quoted me was $120, but I was able to get a shared taxi and then a bus to there for $15. Overall, beautiful hotel and grounds, average food and customer service.

Absolutely stunning place with a great view point and restaurant that directly overlooks the temple. Service crew spoke perfect English with impeccable service. Rooms were clean and very authentic.

Southeast Asian food selection at the restaurant was great even for the regional dishes (speaking as a Southeast Asian). Top resort, no doubt.

The most important bit was getting there and out. Most people get there via a private driver for 40-55k kyat from Bagan but my partner and I took a minibus/lorry from the old Bagan bus station (near Nyaung Oo Market) for 2k kyat. It was a 1.5h ride to Kyaukpadaung (pronounced as “Chaprawl”), where we took a 30mins tuk tuk ride up to the resort entrance from there for 9k kyat (Had the helpful staff assist us in translating to get the driver’s number for a ride down the mountain).

As we didn’t know the minibus schedule back, We went back to Bagan the next day with the same tuk tuk driver from the resort to Nyaung Oo Market for 25k kyat.
