Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

dtay88 wrote a review Jan 2020

If I could give this a 3.5 star review I would, because I really do feel my experience was between a 3 and a 4 star one.

The location of the resort, situated right on the banks of the Irawaddy River, was stunning. Walk through reception towards the river and it opens up to a view of the opposite bank, with a lovely looking pool and gardens. That was a lovely welcome.

Staff were reasonably friendly, although not particularly proactive or attentive. It very much depended on who you got on the day.

The breakfast buffet was pretty decent but nothing to write home about - both days we had to ask for tea and coffee and our plates weren’t cleared away quickly, so there was often a stack of plates on the table waiting to be removed. However, this wasn’t a major issue.

The room itself was fine but the bathroom in particular needed some TLC. For example, the shower curtain was a bit mouldy and the bathtub itself didn’t look very clean. I felt the need to wear slippers in the bathtub. The fan extractor in the bathroom was aggressively loud and we didn’t really end up using it.

You can rent bicycles and e-scooters from reception for not very much. However, for the e-scooters, you pay per person rather than per scooter. My husband and I shared a scooter but still had to pay for two people.

My overall impression was that it was good but has so much potential to be amazing. There is so much going for this resort but just needs to step things up a notch or two. We came during peak season and paid USD180 per room per night and didn’t feel like we got our money’s worth.

Location and setting are superb - on a bend in the Irrawaddy river. The grounds are beautifully laid out and immaculately groomed. There is a large kitchen garden and fruit orchard, which is well worth a stroll around.
The staff are very attentive and smiling. Very eager to help. Staff training is still login on with coaching from the senior staff.
Downside is that ti feels a bit dated and the decor and fittings in the room were a bit worn.
The restaurant was really expensive with a small menu which does not change - photos of the food in the menu. Overall poor value fo rteh food. We were a bit bored of the choices after three nights. No other choices within walking distance, but taxis can be hired from Bagan.
River view rooms are nice for the view (B041 is the best) - but the boats on the river are loud and start at first light. The gardens are so nice that I would probably just go for an ordinary room if coming here again.

This was my 3rd visit to the resort and each time the grounds have become more beautiful. It truly is a peaceful and quiet place to stay when in Bagan - very close to the temples and New Bagan. You can sit out on th deck (near the front office) and watch the amazing sunsets over the Irrawaddy River and the hills in the background.

I always stay in one of the deluxe garden view rooms where you can see the grounds from your deck and the water. The cottages are basic but clean. Most of the time you're at the temples, enjoying the pool, or wandering around the grounds, so you're really only sleeping there or sitting out on your deck relaxing.

The reason I didn't give them 5 stars is the decks at the cottages need to be repainted and the cushions on the deck chairs are in dire need of replacement (they were really dirty and torn). Last time I was there in 2006, they had just repainted the decks and had fresh cushions on them. They spend a lot of care on the gardens and grounds but it's time to fix up the decks and freshen up the rooms (some new bedding, etc.)

Housekeeping service lis good but the bathrooms are old and dingy. The quality of the food is not that great, the food runs out quickly and takes a while to top up. Hotel should be plan accordingly to ensure that the food is always refilled.
I was charged for hot water with lemon which I had requested during dinner. When I queried about the charge, I was told it was because I ordered room service which is not the case as the hotel provides tea making facilities in the room.

This really leaves an unpleasant feeling after spending a lot at the hotel.
I would not recommend the hotel to business travellers nor its a good place to hold events.

Hotel is nicely located at the river, nice pool area with a lush garden and a nice sunset view.

However, staff was unskilled and could not handle standard requests. Bungalow was not clean. Breakfast buffet had a very limited selection and the quality was doubtful.

Overall, the hotel price versus the experience you receive as a customer is not met. It should not be rated as a 4 STARS resort.

Nice hotel with perfect location. Great facilities and atmosphere especially at sun set time with the view on the river. Unfortunately this is not enough. Disappointing menu and dish quality. Limited wine selection. Staff not up to the standard of the hotel. Electric bikes for rent are outrageously expensive and not fully charged when given. 2 of them had a to be replaced during the day, in the middle of nowhere. Assistance was slow and hotel staff did not care. Overall good place to be, but do not expect good service, or good food.... extremely disappointing....

River view suit is spacious and accessaries are luxarious. Breakfast is teasty. Landscaping is grate leaving large area of open space to enjoy sunset. Service is knowing their work well. Warm water is quick. Can see birds as well. Seat small birds come to fetch breakfast.

We stayed 4 nights in the resort and it was simply the best!
After a long day walking around the amazing temples in Bagan it offered us the best way to rest! Pool near our room gave us refresh and a beautiful view to the river.
The silence of the resort it’s just magical and the birds singing makes you feel like in paradise!
Also if you missed the temple you have one inside it!
Staff was super kind and friendly. PaPa (hope I write it well) helped us with the city tour calling a driver for the next day and she was just lovely!
What I have to say... miss you guys!

The photos are amazing. The pool and the view WOW. Then we were shown our room. The rancid odour hit us like a rock like it has not been lived in for years. The toilets were filthy with urine smells and stains. The shower had hair all over. We were appalled and thought we were mistakenly put in a different resort. It was even in an area called the Sakura but the manager reassured me this was their deluxe suite. I have never been so shocked. There were no explanation except we were told housekeeping would tend to the urine stains. Seriously this is false advertising. Stay away!!
