Some hotels have the looks and others have the location but this one combines both in a spot surrounded by what must be one of the most fabulous areas you'll ever see. Rooms are very airy and very nicely decorated. The lobby, garden and swimming pool area are very inviting. Excellent food is served in the restaurant, either under roof or in the garden. Though within walking distance of the main temples of Bagan (which is pure luxe) you should hire an electric scooter and spend at least 2-3 days to discover this incredible area and enjoy the magical sunrises and sunsets. And then you come back and enjoy this very relaxed property.
