“Thoughtfully designed hotel striving for excellence”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

The rooms were very well designed with enough storage space, layout of the bathroom was perfect for 2 with enough space to place toiletries etc for 2. It was great to have a bath and shower and the rooms were spotlessly clean too... You can tell that a lot is going into training for customer care and reaching for high standards. The water was cut off for engineering works late one evening which was a bit of a shock. We called reception and they reinstated it helpfully and the next day we found a note (it would have been more helpful to be told at reception that morning or had a call). The other point is a general one that Bagan shuts very early so its important to choose restaurants carefully. My view is that the hotel bar will also have to work towards staying open later than 10. The hotel deserves much praise and we would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone.

Beautifully designed hotel with spacious, well-appointed rooms, all stylishly presented. Calm and relaxing location, just a little bit away from the noise and dust of the main town, but close enough to easily access it walking or by bicycle (or e-bike, which we highly recommend!). Fabulous pool and poolside bar. Excellent food a huge selection, although I'm not usually a fan of buffet dinners, the buffets here were a huge surprise, well though-out, original and delicious foods. The cocktails are also exquisite, a rare treat in Bagan! And last but not least, the staff are absolutely wonderful, professional, attentive, friendly, informative and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and relaxed. They provided us with a wealth of information regarding the Bagan temples, transport to Mount Papa and places to eat. I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough, and the nearby temples, which are a little away from the main ones, feel like a real treasure as you will usually find yourself exploring these alone.
Just a 10 minute walk (less than 5 minutes cycling) from the hotel is a climbable temple which is absolutely idyllic at sunrise and sunset - a must-see for all visitors.

Room Tip: We found all of the rooms very pleasant, they are all on one level with a terrace running around the...

This hotel has fantastic rooms; spacious and well appointed; and really comfortable beds and furnishings. We loved the pool, especially after a hard day of touring Bagan's temples in the heat. Breakfast is good and reception staff are excellent. Have to agree about the location though. It's a little way away from the restaurants of Bagan so you do need to eat at the hotel. That's the only gripe in a great place to stay.

Spacious, beautifully appointed room with a quite superb bathroom. Only one problem - unless you are an exhibitionist - the very large all round windows mean you will want to close the curtains. Good restaurant, bar, wine list. A lovely swimming pool so much to recommend it. However, it's just too far from "downtown" and a selection of restaurants.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as far away from the main road as possible. We had no problems but we met people who...

This lovely new hotel is set on the road away from New Bagan. It really is an oasis of calm amongst the dirt and dust of Bagan - a lovely place to come back to having had a day of visiting the amazing temples of Bagan. The rooms are stylish, spacious and contemporary and the bathroom was the best we had in Burma by far! The food in the restaurant was excellent (prepared by a talented German chef) and we sampled both a lunch and a dinner. The only niggles were intermittent wi-fi (which is a countrywide problem) and that the walls to the next door room are quite thin. Highly recommended and we will return on our next visit to Bagan.

Stayed 3 nights at this wonderful hotel. Taxi from airport was approx $7 U.S. Hotel is brand new and everything is spotless. Rooms are located in 2 unit single storey dwellings. Rooms are very large with a sitting area, desk, 2 wardrobes, safe and mini bar as well as covered verandah with 2 wicker lounge chairs. Spacious bathroom with double sinks, tub and shower. Toiletries were replenished daily. Pool was spectacular with towels and lounge chairs provided. Poolside bar as well as lobby bar. Open air dining room overlooked the pool. Breakfast was not included in our room rate and was $15.00 person however it was buffet style with many western items. Dinner prices were more reasonable. Food was good.
Spa was very good and reasonably priced, clean and had skilled therapists. Ms. Peerada, the spa manager was very helpful with local knowledge, friendly and her English was excellent. Front desk staff were accommodating and spoke reasonable English.
Wifi was available in rooms however as with most of Myanmar (except Yangon) connectivity was spotty. if you are lucky and are up early, you will have an opportunity to see the Balloons over Bagan pass by the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the pool are more central

This is an impressive new property . But it's location away from the centre makes it difficult to walk around which meant we stayed back to eat at their restaurant which could definitely do with more things on the menu . The rooms were very well appointed but the water from the shower leaked all over the bathroom and made it a mess .

Room Tip: Definitely check if the shower water leaks !

Dear AnitaA,

Thanks for your review about Bagan Lodge. We are happy to inform you that since your stay with us last year, our team has been working hard to correct the issues that you mention! The water issue with the shower has been fixed for a while and we have also seen our menu grow. For the F&B operation, we wanted to start modestly to ensure we were able to maintain quality and we planned to expand our menu and train the teams both in the kitchen and the front of house at a conservative pace. We apologize if the range of dishes at the time of your stay wasn’t complete and we failed to live up to your expectation. We hope we have another chance to welcome you back again so you can see how we have grown!

We really appreciate the positive feedback within your review and thank you for staying with us.

Sincerely,

The Bagan Lodge Team!
