Some rooms with beautiful view of Mount Popa. The Resort is located on top of a hill - nothing close by. Room is ok - they charge 5$ for a tea bag! Food and service acceptable but not outstanding. WiFi only in the Reception area. Quite a few steep stairs - not an ideal place for people with walking problems

We booked Deluxe Taungkalat view room 701. When I stepped out onto the large veranda the view was spectacular - Mount Popa right opposite. We had lunch in the hotel restaurant which was good and the view again amazing. We were able to witness the sunset from our veranda what a fantastic atmosphere. Afterwards we sat out on the veranda...

We went there with my friend for our vacation. We spent one day at Bagan see all sunrise until sunset. The other day we travel to Mount POPA for one hour drive. You will reach to Mount POPA. After that we go to Popa mountain resort the other 20 minutes, the other place that you can see Mount Popa view....

This place was built 20 years ago, and opened by the General in charge of peace - which is commemorated in a plaque Seriously high prices - beer at $5 - but the food was excellent and the view for sunset was great. Wifi only in reception - and was pretty slow. Day trips come from Bagan and go back...

Positive first impression when we arrived, nice staff and a warm welcome. Our room was smaller than we thought and the bathroom rather 'budget', but all still fine considering the price for our stay. Quality of the food in the restaurant is good, price on the higher end. What's a pity though is that the resorts day-guests (mostly big bus...

We were right up the top of the resort. Not too far to walk, yet far enough. Rooms are basic with back porch and shared front verandah. . For somewhere to sleep it is fine. The walk down in the morning to catch the sunrise light up Mount Popa is well worth getting up for.

The resort is right at the mountain with beautiful landscape and overlooking the temple. The people and service is great. Food is great too. Definitely a good place to relax and enjoy the peaceful and serene greeneries and view. Room is simple and pretty dark. There are mozzies around but they do provide the mosquito coils. Love the pool as...

We stayed at this resort for one night. Our room had a fantastic balcony with a wooden bench to enjoy the view. The sockets in the room were not working properly and there was no wi fi in the room. The only place there was wi fi was in the lobby of the hotel. When you are trying to make...

You can imagine how this place was in its heyday. With a little love it could be amazing. For our last nine in Burma we decided to treat ourselves. There's a lovely restaurant overlooking Mount Popa. From time to time a bus of tourists with tripods will arrive and take pics but they're usually quiet. The food is good, a...

Our driver bought us here after our trip to Mt Poppa Pagoda. The location, environment and views are fabulous. Service was ok but the food was very disappointing, especially for the price. All in $US. Stir fry chicken was $10. Coffee was $4. More than you'd pay anywhere in the USA and not even good.
