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.

    Looks like the perfect place to escape from the heat of Bagan! I like how this hotel focuses on helping visitors understand the local culture. I’ll keep it in mind for when I visit Bagan.

    • Yeah, its gets so hot you need a good place to escape and cool down!! They really are wonderful too in explaining all you want to know about the region

  • Hi Nic,

    Just left Bagan a month ago. Loved the place – although I fell violently ill there LOL – and the ancient feel to the temples. I imagined myself to be Indiana Jones as I biked from ruin to ruin, enjoying the journey, snapping shots and trying to keep dust out of my nose 😉 All in all a beautiful place; both your resort and the town itself.

    Cool too how you just pay the park entry fee on entering town and you are set for 5 days. Smart….because we are there for the temples and smashing sunrise and sunset shots.

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Signing off from Thailand.

    • Ahh, too bad you were ill there, hope you still loved it like we did! It was such an adventure, we will be writing about it soon!

  • Carol

    Have an opportunity to go to Myanmar this September!

  • Amy Butterfield

    Myanmar is quickly climbing our list! And a resort that offers that perfect balance of location, accessibility and calm is what we look for. I also appreciate a resort with staff that are so welcoming and helpful, for us, that interaction is important. What a great look accommodation!

    • Myanmar for us is now in our top 10 countries we have been for sure, there is so much here that is so authentic and beautiful, the people too are so wonderful.

  • So I am not going to lie that resort, the bedroom, the bathroom and the pool area look awesome! But my question is did you feel like you cheating the experience not being a little bit more local? Or even did you feel like with the poverty around you were exploiting the area? Please don’t take it the wrong way, I ask because I had that experience in India where we stayed at some 4 star posh place by total accident and I always kind of felt bad when I would walk out of the building and see the village around it.

    • Hey. No not really because these places, or at least here, really do help benefit the community by donating and also providing many jobs to locals and opportunities to move up, to learn English and change their lives. Plus in Myanmar as a whole accomodation is a tricky thing, there are no hostels and it is illegal to do things like couch surfing. After staying here we hiked for 3 days with a local guide through minority villages and slept in guest houses and really lived in the local way. This was something organised by ourselves from Kalaw to Inle via one of the local trekking companies there. So really just staying in some run down hotel in Bagan where they treat the staff badly or staying in a place like this where they encourage you to inquire about the culture and make sure they pay their staff well and pay back to the community is a much better option. Plus once you are out riding the bikes all day and exploring Bagan you get the fullest experience regardless of where you stay.

    That pool looks so epic!! Myanmar is moving up higher and higher on my to travel list. It looks like such a beautiful place to stay and I like that it tries to educate as well

    • The pool is just amazing after being out exploring in the sun, gives you the perfect balance between visiting the temples and relaxing

  • Travelling Dany

    You’re right, the architecture is great, but also the swimming pool looks particularly good and I liked the room too. It seems like a good place to rest after exploring!

    • Yes, the absolute perfect place as Bagan is so beautiful but at this time of the year the heat is so oppressive!

  • Danik Bates

    This resort looks totally awesome place to stay and may check this out when we get out to Myanmar one day. Loving the architecture out there but most of all, that pool looks so inviting right now. 😀

    • Ahh, mate, after backpacking for 6 months this place was heaven, add to the fact that it is so hot here then that pool was such a blessing. You guys would love it over here!

  • Myanmar Treasure Resort Bagan looks amazing!! I like the fact that you won’t be isolated from the culture by staying here!! That, too, is a concern for me when staying at a luxury hotel. Did you all get a view of the temples from a hot air balloon ride?

    • Yeah that is the concern sometimes for sure but this place is perfect. We caught the last flight just from the temples as it was all sold out, something to come back for for sure!
