I do not know about you but when I look at hotels in developing world, I always make allowances for the political, environmental and social conditions where these hotels existed to operate. The ThiriSan is excellent and everyone's favorite! This hotel resort is indeed a sanctuary for travelers who are looking for a respite but not willing to spend too much on luxurious hotel. The Thiripyitsaya delivers: the layout compliments the surrounding, it sits beautifully along the Irriwaddy River, and the hotel architecture is restraint echoing the thousands stupas of the surrounding area. The breakfast is delicious in a patio overlooking the river. The villa accommodation is charming. The pool is a gift after the hot summer days of sightseeing; and if you have kids like me, it is a life saver!
The service of the spa is a hit or miss though. Two in our company did not get a good massage while the others said they enjoyed it tremendously. But overall, we love the serenity and the organic feel of this resort.
