My trip to Bagan was just fantastic and it had so much to do with this hotel - the property was beautiful but really it was the great service that made all the difference.

I turned up (as I think maybe people do because of the overnight bus schedule) as 4:30 a.m. and thankfully someone was at the front desk. They let me stow my luggage and gave me a bike and I was off to the temples for the sunrise. Then when I came back they let me check in very early which was wonderful since I was absolutely exhausted.

The room was beautiful, very pretty and the bed was SO comfortable. The bathroom was nice, had a waterfall shower, hot water and was very big and spacious. The room's double doors open up to the courtyard (or if you're on the other side, the pool) so you it's very bright and light.

The hotel arranged a bus ticket and pick up for my next destination, as well as letting me check out late (which they actually called to let me know! Since they were aware I was taking the evening bus).

I don't agree that the hotel is far out, it is in New Bagan and as close to the temples as you can be (closer than the hotels in Old Bagan for sure). I rented an electronic bike - if you are going to Bagan you MUST rent an electronic bike. It is so easy to get around.

Oh and the internet worked great, much better than any other place I've been in Myanmar. So nice to be able to Skype and get in touch with family.

All in all I would definitely stay here again and highly HIGHLY recommend it. Thank you so much to the wonderful people at the Blue Bird for making my trip to Bagan so fantastic! I will be back!

Stayed there for a couple of days during our stay in Bagan. Actually the hotel in not in Bagan but in New Bagan, around 5km away from the major attractions. We rented Chinese E-bikes to get around, which is an absolute must as we would have died on the hot Bagan plains if we had decided to walk. The distance to the sights also means you either go back and forth a few times or stay out the whole day.
The hotel is great. Great rooms, great pool, great service, good food.
But again, really no other restaurant within walking distance (try the Sunset Garden at the river. Great atmosphere and great food).

So what do you expect from a small hotel in Bagan? You should at least expect a lot more than from the pictures on Tripadvisor or the hotel website. Because Blue Bird is so much better. We have been travelling around Asia for year and this is one of the best places we have ever stayed. Yes there has been more luxury. Yes there have been even better food. But add the extremely almost over the top friendly service, with the feeling of coming home to luxury after a long day on the sandy roads around Bagan, this is magic. It has the best restaurant we could find in Bagan, and the ambience feels more like Bali than Myanmar. We loved it. And we would stay again any day. The rooms are huge, the bathrooms are huge - the only thing you should be aware of is that there is no private terrasse. But there is a very nice garden to sit in next to the restaurant. Try the local Shiraz or Sauvignon Blanc for vine - you will be surprised. Go now - it will not be a bargain forever. Extra plus for the friendly and caring manager - caring as much for staff as for customers. Also a very pleasant surprise

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at the Blue Bird. It is rarely that you see a hotel get so many things right. From the decor of the room, to the pool, a real oasis. The staff were so very helpful. Breakfast was excellent, however dinner was not up to the same standard. The push bikes are also probably in need of replacement as it was a little nerve racking venturing further afield on a bike that felt like it was going to fall apart any minute. However in all in all, our stay at Blue Bird made our holiday in Myanmar.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool side room.

Stayed in July 2014 for 3 nights, as soon as we arrived we knew we had made the right choice. Really friendly welcome and cold towels, even a promise to my six year old daughter that they would find a DVD of frozen for her, which was subsequently granted as a leaving present! Lovely big rooms and bathrooms, pool great for relaxing around after hot dusty sight seeing, friendly staff, great cocktails, and tasty food. The only downside was slow internet, but this was a countrywide problem so not sure what they could have done!
