While being at Bagan visiting the amazing millenary temples, we stayed and definitely loved Yadanarbon Hotel. This a new big hotel located in the small village of New Bagan, few kilometers away from Old Bagan.
The room where we stayed was not so big but decorated in a way that made it look way more spacious. And thanks to the windows, that covered almost half of the room walls, we had the sensation of being in an open space every time we opened the curtains. Really good to have also were the bathrobes, available in the room. We personally liked to wear them, just to chill in the room and specially to go downstairs to the swimming pool.
In the morning, you will be pleased with a buffet breakfast with quite a lot of variety. It’s located on the edge of New Bagan, but since it’s so small you will be walking distance from all the restaurants and shops. And at night you will appreciate being there since you will sleep in total silence.
Even if the hotel is under renovation the noise of the works will not bother you that much, moreover because probably during the working hours you will be out visiting the temples. Once back, the best way to recover from the excursion before you go to sleep, it’s definitely taking a bath in the illuminated swimming pool, located right next to the restaurant. Followed, why not, by an even more relaxing bath in the tube back in your bathroom.
Especially, what we appreciated the most was the attentiveness of all the staff in general, and the little details as when you go down to the pool, that they receive you there with complimentary cold water and peanuts.
