The Bagan hotel riverview is a 3 star hotel situated on the banks of the Ayerwardy river. The 2 restaurants have good food and the main one has a beautiful view of the river where you can watch the beatiful sunsets. There are a good 124 rooms and butler serviced suites here so there is a good choice. On the subject of facilities there is asmall pool and a Spa.
The rooms and butler serviced suites are pretty comfortable and feature rattan armchairs and teak flooring as well as lacquer vases. There is a T.V with a good amount of channels on offer and the bathrooms have two sinks. On the subject of food the resort serves up a whole choice of dishes ranging from delicious burmese curries to the exotic icecream flavours or even a bit of pizza. The breakfast buffet has good pancakes stuffed with banana's and drizzled on the top with syrup. The riverview does its share for the environment with vegetable gardens and solar panels. There is a small but rather refreshingly shady lagoon pool with comfortable sunbeds on the sundeck around it. There is a small Spa as well as a massage area for people wanting to get pampered. The location here is beautiful and the main restaurant next to the river is the perfect place to watch the romantic sunset and the fishing boats go past. The staff here are very kind and well trained and most of them speak English.
The rooms may be nice but the bathrooms are the complete opposite. With white tiled walls and rusted bathrooms they may make you want to look away for a while. Although the food here is acceptable the buffet breakfast is far too small with only five dishes on offer. They should improve the gardens because in some parts of the gardens there are horrible little pricks that stick on to your feet and feel like splinters. The materesses are just one huge sponge and aren't the most comfortable materesses the rooms have got a view of the paths and they aren't good.
But this is what you have to expect in 3 star hotels and it dosen't really matter because it is a truely romantic and exotic holiday destination.
Try the river cruise at sunset. It is really romantic and it makes you wish you never had to leave.
