Backpacker to high-end in a single package

More on Bagan

The ostentatious Royal Bagan has all the hallmarks of a fancy, midrange, would-be boutique resort, with a smart pool and well-tended tropical garden -- with $20 dorm beds, good deal mid-priced rooms plus overpriced family rooms.

Travelfish says:

The entrance is, we guess, an attempt at nouveau temple chic design and gives onto Anawrahta Road, between the midrange Motel Zein and Oasis Hotel. Behind this, a corridor contains reception and the first series of rooms. Rooms are well appointed with sturdy, new wooden furniture and, even with the dorm, an effort has been made in the decoration department. All options come with air-con and ensuite spacious bathrooms while superior rooms also have cable TV, safes and free toiletries.

The pool is small but set in a pleasant garden with attractive seating areas. We’d maybe forget the admittedly spacious but expensive family options -- particularly during high season -- and we’re in two minds about the dorm though it does mean you get buffet breakfast, hot shower, air-con and pool for as low as $16 per person during quiet months. Being new and not so well known, we suspect you could dig up good online discounts. In that case check the low-season family rates, as they are for four people, not three.
