Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 November 2012

We had the great pleasure of staying 3 nights at Blue Bird in Nov 2012. This lovely boutique hotel is locally owned and run with a lot of heart. The delightful staff cannot do enough for the guests, the rooms are large and very stylish, the pool is surrounded by a tropical garden (as is the whole hotel), the restaurant offers a delicious menu and unique cocktails. The hotel is located in New Bagan, a short walk to local restaurants and an easy cycle to the ruins in old Bagan. The hotel also has bicycles for rent. The owners - a Burmese-French couple, have many years of experience managing hotels and working in hospitality. A wonderful ambiance and a place we highly recommend.

A boutique hotel without artificial tricks but with art and taste! As soon as you arrive, you notice the dark blue swimming pool, surrounded by flowers and well curated trees. The keepers serve you some cold tea with lemongrass. Rooms offer generous space, with a local touch: laquerware, black stone, silver. You have your breakfast in a kind of veranda. Keepers are very much available and ready to share with your their knowledge on the wonderful site of Bagan. A highly recommendable place!

A friend and I stayed at this marvelous hotel in New Bagan. We loved the location because we could bike to the local village and walk to excellent restaurants. The hotel is run by a lovely Myanmar woman and her Swiss husband. They are detailed, exacting, and working hard to train their staff. The grounds are immaculate, the hotel is very well staffed, and the rooms were lovely and clean. The pool (with bar service) was a welcomed treat int he afternoon. I will definitely take my family back to Myanmar and stay in the hotel. The only improvement could be to make the food a little more flavorful. That being said, all I thought about as I stayed in the hotel was that my husband (who prefers elegant hotels to roughing it) would love the place. The proprietor was very knowledgeable about where I could buy specific items in Yangon and Mandalay.

We also had a wonderful guide from Tour Mandalay. Pwint spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable about the sights. She stayed late when we deviated from the itinerary by spending so much time talking to the people we met in the village and on the street. We rented bikes, which were delivered to the hotel, and they were extremely well-maintained (far superior to what I was given in China).

I HIGHLY recommend the Blue Bird and a trip to Myanmar. I travel extensively and this and Kenya are my top destinations. The people are truly special.

We stayed at the Blue Bird in Bagan for 3 nights and it was the perfect place to stay while in Bagan. Daytime, we could either take a bicycle or horse cart to go and visit the temples and the area, or just simply enjoy the relaxing atmosphere by the pool.
The resort environnement is really pleasant, full of plants, green and offering a private and utmost appreciated atmosphere.
All the people working there are really kind and making sure you keep your smile during the entire stay. Very helpful in anything we requested, they helped us with the bicycle, the horsecart, spa and other information.
The food and drinks were brilliant! I have to surline the fact that this Resort offers the very best available cocktails in the entire country!
The rooms are big and I especially liked the design idea about the showers and the water flow.

A big massive thanks to all at the Blue Bird Bagan for making our stay so enjoyable and I can definitely recommend anyone going to Bagan to experience this peaceful Resort.

The Rooms are very clean and nice decorated. With HUGE Bathroom! The aircondition works perfect.The boss is really a funny guy and the sevice is very hostiable.
Don't Forget the swimming pool. which is not a big one, but very comfortable. Enjoy the time after a whole day trip in the bagan bagodas!
