The Aureum Palace Hotel and Resort

The Aureum Palace Hotel and Resort provides a stay fit for royalty, with an array of grand buildings set against a stunning backcloth of flourishing vegetation and local-style stupas.

An impressive variety of rooming options includes spacious villas and lake-side bungalows, with spa-style bathrooms, all complete with traditional wooden furniture and charming decor.

This hotel is just a stone’s throw from a popular observatory tower with a terrific view of Bagan’s endless pagodas and plains. It was chosen for its luxurious accommodation, pleasantly serene atmosphere, and first-class customer service.

Bagan Lodge

Bagan Lodge is an elegant inn with French-style architecture nestled in a calm, natural environment reminiscent of a colonial-era wilderness campground. It is situated conveniently near many archeological sites in Old Bagan.

Placed along stone pathways are cozy bungalow-style cottages that house stylish bedrooms decorated with a blend of traditional Burmese and contemporary designs.

At opposite ends of the well-groomed grounds are large pools with plenty of sun-beds, ready to welcome you home after a long day exploring the surrounding ancient ruins and Buddhist temples.

The restaurant hotel serves tasty, traditional food as well as many excellent western dishes. Guests will be pleased by the friendly staff, special ambiance and top-notch facilities at Bagan Lodge.
