Sleeping in Bagan - Raza Gyo Hotel

Accommodations in Bagan and the rest of Myanmar is still limited and rates are a little bit higher because of the influx of tourism and lack of infrastructures. 

There are 3 locations in Bagan when choosing where to stay.

Nyaung U to the northeast is where most of the budget accommodations are. New Bagan is to the southwest and with mid-range hotels. Old Bagan to the northwest caters to the more upmarket travelers.

We stayed at a charming boutique hotel in New Bagan – Raza Gyo Hotel.  It’s homey, clean and comfortable. Our air-conditioned carpeted room was spacious enough with a queen sized bed, hot and cold shower, complimentary coffee and bottled water replenished daily, a television which we never used, a safe and a refrigerator for about 77 USD or P3,500 a night. 

The hotel had a restaurant that served us a hefty breakfast every day (came with the room charge), a swimming pool which is a welcome respite from the heat and the humidity. We were there during an off peak season so we have almost all of the amenities to ourselves.

The staff are very friendly, attentive, helpful, and also spoke good English.

They arranged our transport and private tours for our 3 nights/3 days stay in Bagan and the purchase of our bus tickets going back to Yangon.

All in all, it was a comfortable base in Bagan.  And oh, they have a mini spa that offered traditional Burmese massage at 20 USD.
