“Set within Bagan Archaeological Preservation Zone, this boutique-style resort is a relaxed retreat. Set amid 27 acres of tropical landscaped gardens, the resort is reminiscent of an ancient old oriental settlement with traditional Burmese architecture. We love the location, which is abundant with crumbling pagodas and ruins, and really makes you feel like you’re traveled to another world.”
Located within the Bagan Archaeological Preservation Zone, Aureum Palace Hotel sits amongst ancient temples and spiritual monuments. Surrounded by tropical gardens, it offers a base for guests exploring the ruins of the ancient kingdom that thrived here between the 11th and 13th centuries.
The resort offers 114 deluxe rooms and private villas, scattered throughout the gardens. Rooms are elegantly appointed with teak furniture, high ceilings, intricate Burmese carvings and silks, and local antiques and artifacts. For the ultimate indulgence, the Island Villa features a private pool and indoor and outdoor Jacuzzis.
There are two restaurants serving Burmese, pan-Asian, and Western cuisine, along with a couple of bars and a private club where you can sample the Mandalay rum sour cocktail. The temples, pagodas and stupas are the main attraction; enjoy views from the hotel’s viewing tower at sunrise and sunset. The swimming pool and temple-esque spa offer the perfect respite from a dusty day’s exploring.
