Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary Hotel, Bagan Myanmar, Bagan
Formerly the Sakura Hotel, The Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary is one of the oldest resort’s in Bagan and remains arguably the most elegant and charming place to stay in this magical, historic area.
Set amidst manicured rolling lawns with a huge infinity pool and Jacuzzi overlooking the Irrawaddy River, the Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary is a sophisticated and serene retreat with a timeless charm.
The Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary’s 76 rooms are split into five different categories and housed in ornate, thatched wooden buildings. Antique furnishings, wooden floors and subtle pastel colours combine to create a welcoming and highly peaceful environment.
The overall design incorporates elements of colonial architecture, Burmese craftsmanship and a twist of Japanese minimalism with stunning effect. Sleek and luxurious, the Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary has a markedly traditional feel and the quiet atmosphere will appeal to those really wanting to get away from it all.
Facilities include wifi internet, elaborate in-house spa and a fine dining restaurant and coffee bar overlooking the Irrawaddy River below. The large rectangular swimming pool ranks as one of Bagan’s finest.
The Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary is one of Bagan’s best hotels and superbly blends a range of influences to provide some of the most tranquil and sophisticated accommodation in the old city.

The recommendations of places to visit were perfect, particularly Lake Inle and Bagan and also the day trek in Kalaw was most enjoyable. We will use Experience Travel Group again for any trip of this sort as I felt that the service was personal and professional!
