When a hotel calls themselves amazing, the bar is set a little higher. It’s instantly subjected to an expectation level, all because of its name. I spent three nights at such a place, the Amazing Bagan Resort, to see for myself if the property lives up to its claims.
I quickly found this beautiful spot takes its name seriously. Here’s why:
From the moment we arrived at the resort we were greeted with warm smiles and friendly service. Although Myanmar is known for its hospitality, and the Amazing Bagan Resort excels in this category. Staff were quick to show us around and offer suggestions, directions, and recommendations. There was a refreshing welcome drink and cold towels – both felt like they were sent from heaven on this hot day in Myanmar.
So far so good.
So what makes the Amazing Bagan Resort truly amazing? The amenities and the little extra touches.
While enjoying dinner in the restaurant, A Burmese puppet show broke out. Amazing.
The hotel grounds are lush with a massive pool. Amazing.
The breakfast spread is probably the best in Bagan. Amazing.
Bicycles are available free of charge. Amazing.
AND the towns only golf course is attached to the resort.
The rooms at the resort are spacious and decorated in traditional Burmese fashion. Although I wouldn’t categorize the rooms as “amazing,” they are very comfortable and more than adequate for a Bagan vacation.
With warm smiles, awesome on site amenities and activities, this resort is a great place to tackle the areas endless temples from. Although some TripAdvisor reviews take shots at the name, this is Myanmar – a country that is still relatively untouched to the tourist market. What the Amazing Bagan Resort has put forth really can’t be considered anything less than what the name suggests.
