Aureum Bagan, Bagan Myanmar, Bagan
Aureum Bagan is right in the centre of Bagan’s archaeological zone, which makes for some absolutely stunning views, especially at sunrise and sunset. Despite its close proximity to town, it still manages to maintain a feeling of tranquillity. Expect beautiful grounds, spacious villas and a warm welcome.
After a hard day’s sightseeing, you can cool off in the impressive pool, indulge in a spa treatment, play a round of golf at the nearby club or grab a cocktail and enjoy dinner.
The rooms are spacious and elegant, with standard bathroom facilities and all the usual amenities. It’s the villas that really stand out here. The most luxurious of all is the Island Villa, aptly named because guests stay on their own private island complete with a private pool, butler, valet, Jacuzzi, veranda, terrace and kitchenette.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
We enjoyed a 3 week trip exploring both the well known places as well as the less developed areas. We also balanced the trip with a variety of walks and activities as well as time for several half day breaks to relax. The Myanmar people are incredibly friendly and welcoming. The colours of the country are outstanding, wonderful dusty landscapes with rice fields and palm trees as well as so many amazing pagodas rich in colour and symbolism. Our best parts were the less well known places but Lake Inle and Bagan are must do places and are still not overrun by tourists. Experience Travel Group tailored a trip for our needs and knew how to do so and suggest appropriate hotels and means of travel.
