“Make a detour to stay here”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

We spent a night on the way from the Golden Rock, and it was a highlight of our trip. The best feature of the hotel is the owner, Mi Mi, who lived in both Washington and London so is in a unique position to explain, in fluent English, Burmese culture to Westerners. She answered every question, walked us through food choices, and if she follows her idea of cooking or other classes, take them! House is beautiful, food was fresh and excellent, and the staff really warm and welcoming. We loved our time here.

Room Tip: Some arena have air conditioning, some are Eco rooms with high ceilings and natural ventilation. Sp...

Nicely decorated hotel with a lot of taste. There may be only two reasons to visit Bago: This hotel and.... the hotel manager. A very talkative and passionate lady who created a wonderful atmosphere; A definite must if you're planning a honeymoon in Myanmar. She organised an ''historical'' visit of Bago. If you have a PhD in History from Cambridge, you may not agree with the way she retells the history of the city but you definitely miss the fun of it.

This is a lovely, very spacious house - recently built by the owners - outside of Bago. We had no trouble getting there because we had our own transportation. The owner, Mimi, was exceptionally friendly and helpful. She told us lots of interesting information about local sites and made some phone calls to arrange for us to have a guide for bird-watching at the Moeyungyi Wetlands the next day (about 1 hour away by car). The room was extremely large and comfortable (very high ceilings, lots of wood). The public spaces were also very comfortable and inviting. We had dinner there and it was excellent - including a very fresh steamed fish. I particularly enjoyed sitting on the lawn early in the morning, watching the birds - there were quite a few species in the nearby trees. Overall, one of the nicest places we stayed on our trip (20 days).

This is a lovely little hotel just a short bus ride outside of Bago. The rooms are comfortable with high ceilings and terrific bathrooms. The staff are very caring and helpful - especially MiMi the owner! She is a God send! The food here is good, too. You can't go wrong with a stay here for a night or two to decompress.

I only had lunch just today. If I had known this place, instead of spending my last night in Myanmar in Yangon, I would have chosen this place to wind down, because the car ride to the airport is only 1 hour.
Anyway, the food was good, and late lunch after 1:30 pm without reservation caused no problem. Nice breazy afternoon, overlooking the wide and open country side, you can relax (and have no problem of notorious toilet adventure, which I completely ducked during this trip) I only had one day to spare today, so hired a taxi from Yangon to see a bit of Bago stuff.
I would highly recommend this place but hope it will not be spoiled by bus full of foreign tourists. It is a place you want to see thriving, but not too much in a way to loose its charm.

Room Tip: I did not sleep, and only peeked the rooms, but the traditional room without AC appears gracious.

This is the perfect place for a restful and happy break on a busy schedule. Beautifully built, very comfortable and spacious rooms, excellent food, the kindest staff imaginable and in the glorious countryside near Bago, it's a haven to recharge your batteries. Our only complaint: we weren't able to stay longer.
