Golden Rock Hotel ,
Golden Rock (Mt Kyaiktiyo)
Myanmar, Golden Rock
Info : Golden Rock Hotel
If you’re making the journey to Kyaiktiyo and you’ve done the hike to the Golden Rock itself, you’ll breathe easy knowing your hotel is just a 15-minute trek away – downhill, of course. The location here is an absolute winner: the hotel is perched on Mt. Kyaiktiyo’s lovely wooded terrain. It’s far away from the hustle of the city, and superbly close to the Golden Rock Pagoda so that you can rest your weary head as soon as possible after making the trek.
The Golden Rock Pagoda is over 2,500 years old, a unique world wonder, and is said to even have a direct connection to Buddha himself. The boulder sits precariously on a piece of tabular rock and appears to defy gravity. It overlooks a deep and ravishing valley. If you stay at the apex for sunset, be sure to have a torch on hand for the walk to your hotel. On-site, you can dine in the restaurant, drink at the bar, or browse through the hotel’s souvenir shop.
The deluxe rooms feature basic but adequate facilities, including air-conditioning. The internet in the common area works. Don’t expect fine dining or any special luxury touches. This is a simple, clean and friendly establishment meant to serve the adventurous crowds of people that make the trip to see the Golden Rock Pagoda.
Comfort - This is our lead in category. There will generally be a no frills approach and while some will be characterful, some will do exactly what it says on the tin - provide a clean, comfortable and good value place to spend the night. These places are normally 3* hotels.

My favourite [guide] was Aung in Mandalay. We only had him for one day, but he was determined to show us as much of Mandalay as possible in the time allotted, was obviously very proud of his city and country and was a pleasure to be with. He even took us to meet his uncle who was the Abbott of one of the many monasteries.
