“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

Beautiful country and a wonderful resort hotel. Great pool, great rooms, and above all gracious and friendly staff. I cannot say enough about them all....they went above and beyond in every way. The restaurant was excellent and the German chef was keen to do whatever was necessary to make the dining experience even better. You'll be met by smiling staff with cool towels and refreshing drinks as you check in and that sets the stage for a relaxing stay.

Very nice well designed rooms, nice pool and spa, good breakfast, staff very professional and pleasant, location not central but in one way is good because you do all the tours then return to hotel to enjoy the facilities..

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.
