Heading to Bagan there is a wealth of places to stay now in this growing tourist hub of Myanmar. With the dry heat of the dusty streets as you explore this wonderful ancient town you need to plan your retreat well. Selecting a place which offers you the rest needed to get up early for those unforgettable sunrises, cool down in the midday sun and be close enough to the heritage site to pop back out for sunset! With Myanmar Treasure Resort Bagan you find a peaceful paradise within this mesmerising and culture filled landscape which provides the perfect location to explore ancient Bagan to its fullest!
The perfect setting
Being here as one of the first to provide real luxury to the growing number of visitors to the amazing heritage site of Bagan, Myanmar Treasure Resort has been a groundbreaker for tourism in this wonderful country. Already an established name the hotel itself is showing no signs of ageing, the style of the buildings too are in keeping with that of the temples and local traditional architecture so you always feel close to the culture of Bagan even when you are taking a refreshing dip in the pool.
The resort is also located conveniently to the temples themselves in New Bagan, a bustling town just south of where the majority of the temples lie. There are even a few small temples, shrines and pagodas within the grounds of the hotel itself! Being here means easy and quick access to the historical areas and a town to walk around at night if you want to really experience local life. However it is also set back enough to feel like a calm and peaceful escape!
A place from which to launch your explorations of Bagan
Myanmar treasure resort is perfectly placed to offer you easy access to the breathtaking temples of Bagan whilst offering an escape from the heat and dust of this enchanting landscape in a luxurious setting. Being located inside the Bagan Archaeological Preservation zone this picturesque getaway is in the ideal location. Within New Bagan itself you can experience a wealth of local culture, restaurant and transportation. However it is only a few km from the main area of temples, meaning from here you can easily ride or even walk to many attractions in the area.
It strikes the perfect balance between feeling “in the thick” of the adventure and action whilst also being a calm and cultured place to relax, cool off and plan your next exploration. The staff here are also amazing at making sure your time in Bagan doesn’t disappoint. Many are locals and as such can give you tips on the best spots for sunset and sunrise. Both well known and obscure and quieter locations as well as planning out an entire itinerary of the area for you. They can also rent out e-bikes or organise a personal driver for you at competitive prices.
The most amazing location to cool off after a dusty day!
Exploring Bagan is unlike anywhere else in the world, the thousands of temples that spread out as far as the eye can see are a sight worthy of anyone’s bucket list. However this area is hot and in the dry season it can be dusty and rather harsh. The best plan for making the most of this archaeological region is to visit in the early mornings and the late afternoon/ evenings. Catching the glowing sun as it rises and then falls over this magnificent landscape in much cooler temperatures.
But what to do during the hottest part of the day, well at Myanmar Treasure Resort: Bagan you can cool off in the beautiful swimming pool surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens and palm trees rustling in the gentle breeze. Here you can sit back with a refreshing cocktail and bar snack, catch up on some sleep from the sunrise wake up and take a refreshing dip. All this adds up to the perfect day in Bagan!
More than just a hotel: Somewhere to experience and learn about local culture
Sometimes with large luxury hotel complexes the worry is that you isolate yourself from the local culture. Thankfully Myanmar Treasure hotels, in Bagan and their other locations, pride themselves on their connection to that very culture. The complex itself is tastefully designed in order to reflect the ancient temples of the region, blending tastefully with the surroundings whilst also exuding contemporary elegance. Most of the staff are locals and still wear the traditional “pasa” or “Longyi” and will gladly answer any questions you might have about Bagan or Myanmar as a whole. They really do have a passion about their county, culture and heritage and take great joy in sharing that with you.
Fine dining and a comfortable environment to kick back in
Myanmar is a country of smiles. As soon as you arrive here you will be sure to be greeted with a warm “Min gala bar” and a welcoming smile. The staff at Myanmar treasure take that characteristic charm into everything they do. From serving local food to preparing dishes from around the world. To welcoming you into this stunning resort to chatting about their culture. The staff and service here is second to none and you can be sure your needs, whether big or small, are always serviced with enthusiasm and kindness.
From the stunning pool in which too cool off after a morning at the temples to a selection of high class food from around the world and amble amounts of local culture. Myanmar offers the Bagan temple explorer the perfect location in which to relax in beautiful, friendly and sophisticated surroundings before heading out for the adventure of a lifetime!
