After a massive disappointment (at a different chain) in Bagan, this was just ideal to restore our faith in Burmese hospitality. We stayed 3 days and loved it. A generously sized, luxuriously appointed and carefully decorated suite, with separate shower, a wooden bath tub, a cosy sitting area, four-poster bed and a large private terrace is not bad for their lowest room category! The restaurant has a wide dinner menu and offered a themed buffet on 2 out of 3 evenings. Breakfast buffet was equally extensive and fresh. What makes this place really special, however, is the staff - personable, interested and eager to please - and the extra touches: being greeted by name, with a glass of juice or a cup of tea every time you arrive, some rose petals floating in the hand basin after the room has been made up, open fires burning on the sun deck in the evening...
On the minus side, it is a long way from anywhere, a half-hour boat ride or a little longer drive on atrocious roads. We didn't mind!
