The hotel landscape is quite nice in a good location but the price is very high for such a low service standard. Although we were given a specific price when we booked the hotel they actually charged us a higher price which we ended up paying. It is obvious that the Hotel mangement is more focused on making huge money...

We stayed for three nights between Christmas and New Year, in order to see the sights of Bagan. We had a deluxe room on an upper floor. This was spacious, but again we found the bathroom was a wet room, and there was no shower screen or curtain. That being said, we didn't experience the hot water issues reported by...

Stayed at the Bagan Umbra one night after a trip - it was a strange mix of experiences. Facilities around the hotel were good, poolside dining was a great option, happy hour cocktails and prices were best I had in Bagan. The part that didn't fit with the above experiences was the (included) breakfast. I don't know if it wasn't...

The hotel location, service and breakfast were good. We had a standard room (#205) which was filled with Mosquitos and a door that didn't form a proper seal. The room was in the older side of the hotel and although it had been updated it was still rough. The hotel grounds were nice but the pools had cloudy water which...

We stayed for three nights in a very nice room. The outside breakfast area was very good with plenty of choice. The gardens around the hotel were a pleasure to walk around. We really enjoyed our stay in the hotel and visiting the Bagan area.

What a shame a few bad experiences spoil a lovely hotel. Nice rooms. Awesome gardens. Great food and service but..... Bad wifi in the rooms. Terrible hot water supply even after we moved rooms. And don't book any tours from this hotel. We booked a 1 1/2 hr sunset cruise on the river and got a 40min ride to the...

I recently chose to stay at the Umbra Hotel while visiting Bagan for its price and location. I cant fault the hotel for its location, it is right on the doorstep of all that Bagan has to offer and Bagan has a lot to offer. The food and service from the poolside dining was fantastic, the setting and surroundings of...

Very disappointed. Useless front desk to help us find anything around. Hot water for about 15 seconds for the shower... so 3 days of cold showers was not worth the 150$ per day for this room. Restaurant served us lousy food at dinner. Breakfast was very average. Only positive point of this stay was the traditional dance show during dinner...

Staff was very friendly (like everyone in Myanmar), especially the supervisor working at reception, who was very helpful and knowledgeable. Breakfast menu on sunny terrace was very good and rich in variety. Room was big with nice shower facility. Main pool was the best I have seen in Asia. I can't say anything about food, since we preferred to support...

Service slow also slow wifi. Reception staff a little bit grumpy. No safe in the room. Close to the hotel a laundry and many good restaurants and bike hire. The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel Umbra Bagan is located at Wet Kyi Inn village, mid-way between Old Bagan and the City Nyaung U. Old Bagan is one of the most significant archeological sites in the world which rose to glory as capital of the First Kingdom of Myanmar in the 11th century. The Hotel Umbra Bagan is closer to major tourist attractions like the famous Shwezi Gon Pagoda and Anandar Temple. The beauty of ancient Bagan can be seen early in the morning and be explored simply from the hotel's doorstep. After guests spend the day biking around pagoda in heat and dust they can enjoy our two swimming pools. Also the Hotel Umbra Bagan offers a pleasant quiet surrounding at night with its 5 acres of beautifully landscaped garden. ... more   less
