Fabulous 8.6 From 67 reviews

Good 6.0
Great pool, so so room, overpriced food and drink.
We stayed here 4 nights in January. We booked this hotel specifically because it had a nice pool area where we could lounge in the heat of the day. Pool area is very nice as is the pool and it has great views across the river. The public areas of the hotel are all in good shape however the “cabins (4-plexes)” were quite dated and this was especially evident in the bathrooms. The service was very good and the staff were very pleasant whenever we dealt with them. The hotel is in walking distance of a good number of temples and you can also rent an e-bike for 5000 @ 4 hrs. Although the hotel was convenient for the temples there was nowhere else to eat within walking distance. We had dinner at the hotel the first night and were very disappointed with the quality and quantity relative to the price. ($16 for a chicken leg and a few vegetables, no rice, potato, bread or anything. We never had dinner there again but did order off the bar menu which is more reasonable. You can catch a taxi or horse buggy to the Hotel at Tharabar Gate for about 4,000 one way. Fairer prices, larger menu and much better food. The other issue is the hotel is a bit remote and you need a taxi to go anywhere. Taxis don’t hang out at the hotel and the hotel won’t call one for you, you have to use the hotel taxi which is 2+ times the normal rate.

Best hotel in Bagan :)

Nice enough place but very little atmosphere compared to anywhere we have been here so far. Every other hotel has been very welcoming & friendly- not so much this one, a few of the staff members said hello etc but not like most places. We ran across The Tharabar Gate hotel for dinner & what a difference- wished we had stayed there.

A lovely sanctuary with simple rooms.
This spot was a last minute selection. We wanted great AC since it was blisteringly hot in Bagan. The room AC was great, but there were no other air conditioned spaces. The open air restaurant was too steamy for a pleasant dinner. Breakfast was very good, but the slightly cooler morning air temperature made for a better open air dining experience. We did not find see a restaurant with AC in Bagan, so we assume this was very typical of the area. The location is magnificent. The pool beside the Irawaddy River was also very attractive.

Very Good 8.0
Nice resort with unreasonably high extra prices
We really did enjoy our stay at this place, but I found the cost of extras rather high and some just didn't feel right. We stayed in a very nice river suite with our 7 year old son. The hotel wanted to charge $120 a night for a roll in bed for him. Now, a regular room at the resort was about $95 a night, which included breakfast for 2 people. We ended up bringing a blow up bed for him simply because that cost annoyed me. I am really not cheap, but this was just a very disproportional charge. Sodas. like Coke Zero were $4 at the bar; not outrageous but rather high for Myanmar. For example a Coke Zero is $3 at The Strand in Yangon. The food was reasonable (and you certainly have a great river view at dinner), but again rather expensive for what it was. SPA prices were high (for Myanmar and what it was) as well. Pretty decent internet. We tip fairly well, and after the first 2 days, the experience was better. For example they had $7 nuts at the bar; which I would never order. But by day 3, they just kept giving us those for free; they didn't charge for the 7 year old sons breakfast after the 2nd day onwards. While making me sign the $10 breakfast charge for him the moment we got to breakfast on the 1st two mornings. Anyhow, I would stay there again; but some of the extras are priced unreasonably.
