Look out for the penguins
Tucked away by itself, the Aye Yar River View Resort encompasses a sizeable block of real estate to the north of Old Bagan's better-known properties.
Rooms are in a series of two floor wings around the property and we thought the superiors were significantly better value than the deluxe offerings. Bathrooms come with separate shower and tub and the rooms were especially clean and polished. Facilities include minibar, flatscreen TV and in-room WiFi. There is a central freeform and kid-friendly swimming pool (look out for the penguins) and a restaurant overlooks it. We found the front desk staff to struggle with English, but they were extremely obliging.
