Definitely our fanciest hotel for this trip, the Regency has all the creature comforts of a nice, Western hotel, plus the warmth of an incredibly helpful staff. A very nice breakfast buffet, and a fantastic pool area, which is rare in this country.
It is about 5-6km away from the main drag in Nyaung U, so you'll have to spend a bit more for a tuk tuk or rent an e bike or bicycle to get around. Requires a little more planning and travel time in the area, but we enjoyed our stay there immensely.
The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is their bicycles; they are in desparate need of an upgrade. All they have are single gear bikes, none of which are big enough for a 6ft tall guy like myself. Bagan is a nice place to bike around, and having a few larger bikes with at least 3 gears would be much appreciated. For more local places, I wouldn't complain, but this is definitely a place that can afford to upgrade their bikes.More
