To start planning your vacation to Bagan Lodge
Bagan Lodge is a chic and contemporary property in Old Bagan. It is beautifully designed with earthy colors and stylish decor. The reception at Bagan Lodge opens up to the inviting swimming pool, shrouded with sun loungers. The service here is seamless and you will be made to feel very welcome from the second of your arrival.
Its location in Old Bagan makes it a brilliant base from which to explore the surrounding temples, pagodas, stupas and ruins, which are sprawling over 100 square meters of land. The hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere, so is the ideal retreat after time spent visiting the archaeological sites.
Bagan Lodge opened in 2013 and was very much part of a new breed of hotels which are opening up in Burma offering a little more comfort and style than the limited selection of places to rest your head which preceded it. As you enter the lobby, you will see that the main restaurant and bar all surround a central swimming pool, one of the largest you will find in Bagan, (20m x 9m) so great if you are traveling as a family. The villas then are dotted around the spacious grounds, all topped with a canvas roof tent. The villas are spacious, with huge bathrooms to the rear and delightful sit-outs to the front. Many of the villas interconnect. You can expect a wide range of handy mod-cons such as TVs, rainforest showers, mini bar and even hair dryers which is something you don’t find all too often with Burmese hotels!
The main restaurant is called The Tiffin Box, producing authentic Myanmar cuisine and Western options. The Pool Bar serves up cool beers, refreshing cocktails or fresh fruit juices, with snacks available to order. You can also enjoy an afternoon coffee or pre-dinner beverage at the Lobby Lounge Bar. There is also a spa at Bagan Lodge, with 8 treatments rooms.
They have 82 rooms (double and twin) and 3 suites, each with their own balcony space, air conditioning unit, wireless internet access, mini-bar, in-room safe, hair dryer and cable television.
Options include The Tiffin Box Restaurant, Lobby Lounge Bar and Pool Bar. The main restaurant is The Tiffin Box and this is open air, serving up local Myanmar and Western cuisine.
Laundry and room service are available and the front desk is open 24 hours a day. Daily housekeeping is included in your stay. The spa is made up of eight treatment rooms, with a wide range of relaxing and beauty treatments to choose from.

When to go
The best time to visit Burma is during the dry season from November to April. At this time the warm and sunny days are ideal for sightseeing throughout the country. The temperatures start to rise in March, and May to September is best avoided as this is the rainy season when sightseeing can become difficult.
