This was a charming hotel set among the pagodas for which Bagan is so famous. Right outside my bedroom window was one well maintained pagoda and overlooking the pool were another 3, although they were not actually in the hotel complex. It certainly provided a constant reminder of which special part of the world you were in.
The rooms were large with the furnishing reflecting local materials and crafts. The beds were comfortable. If I recall correctly, this was one of the few hotels I stayed in while I was in Myanmar where the water temperature was spot on for showering within moments of turning on the tap.
A nice touch was the picture made out of petals and its accompanying message left on my bed by the service team.
One downside was I could not find an English speaking channel on the television - no big deal, I just wanted to catch up briefly on the news.
I never succeeded in connecting to wifi in my room. I was able to connect in the hotel reception area but this required an enormous amount of patience and perseverence. Again, not a big issue - those travelling off the beaten track to pioneering destinations have to remain open minded and understanding that infrastructure will not be quite as advanced as it is in other more developed places.
It was located quite a way down a rough track so I was glad we had bicycles and a private bus available to us.
