Bagan River View Hotel , Bagan Myanmar, Bagan
The excellent Bagan River View Hotel is designed with a nod to ancient bagan temple architecture with terracotta brick used throughout to compliment the modern facilities.
The 107 rooms are spread out in separate single-storey buildings. Split into six categories, the lead-in is the Deluxe room, followed by a range of Suite options. Rooms creatively incorporate brick and wood into their simple yet pleasant decor. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning and satellite television.
Set in a large, shaded garden with a quality free-form swimming pool, the hotel even has its own ancient temple stupa situated within its’ perimeter. ‘Temple dining’ with a romantic and atmospheric temple-side banquet can be arranged on request.
The main restaurant is situated overlooking the river and offers a serene setting to enjoy the Burmese and European cuisine.
The hotel manages to capture the essence of ancient Bagan in its design without ever feeling kitsch or over-done.
The Bagan River View Hotel offers a genuinely Burmese experience with good value for money, a range of excellent rooms and a great location.
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.

Our Pandaw river cruise was excellent in every way and we had a memorable holiday. Our guide Terry made the trip for us. I couldn't recommend Pandaw more highly, it's been perfect in every way. Loved the informality of it all and the evening cocktails were delicious. Trips ashore clambering up the banks of the Irrawaddy into little villages were quite delightful and locals were fascinated by us. Excellent mixed itinerary organised by our guide which took in all aspects of life!
