Nestled on the bank of the majestic Ayevarwady River, Bagan Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary Resort offers peace and tranquility in the heart of ancient Bagan. With 76 rooms spread across acres of gardens, you’ll never feel like you’re hemmed in by other guests.
The resort’s rooms draw heavily on the native teak that has made Myanmar famous and come in five types, ranging from river view suites to superior rooms. All feature modern amenities, including televisions and hot water, and are ideal for resting after a long day exploring the temples. The river view suites and deluxe river view rooms all offer delightful views of the Ayeyarwady.
Another place to revitalize is by the swimming pool, which is one of the largest in the Bagan area. The wide deck around the pool ensures that there is ample room for all guests to enjoy a refreshing swim. Another alternative is the Thiripyitsaya Spa, which offers a range of massages, body treatments, facials, and wraps and scrubs, all overseen by well-trained staff. Finally, to achieve true inner peace, the resort offers one- and two-hour Vipassana meditation sessions led by English-speaking instructors. The sessions are suitable for beginners and provide an insight into the fundamentals of this practice.
For breakfast, lunch and dinner, Bagan Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary Resort has you covered. Its restaurant uses only the freshest ingredients, some of which are grown in its gardens, and all are prepared in accordance with strict hygiene standards. It offers a wide range of Asian and Western dishes, along with an extensive wine list. The setting can’t be beaten: Breakfast is served on the terrace beside the swimming pool, overlooking the river, while at night the terrace is transformed into a romantic candlelit venue. After dinner, unwind for a drink at the Pavilion Lounge.
Bagan Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary Resort is one of just a handful of hotels located in Old Bagan, in the heart of the ancient capital that today is one of the archaeological wonders of Asia. Bagan was the first great Myanmar empire, and rose to prominence from the 11th to 13th centuries. It was here that Theravada Buddhism first flourished in Myanmar, and successive kings built majestic monuments to their religion. Many of these still stand today, with thousands of temples dotting the Bagan plain.
Of course, most of us can’t spend all our time exploring the pagodas of ancient Bagan. Whether you’re a foreign visitor or resident of Myanmar, at some point you’ll find yourself in Yangon and looking for a comfortable setting for a special night out, or a relaxing place to drink a coffee and eat a snack. With dining hours beginning at 9am and ending at 10:30pm, Sky Lounge is also a breakfast and after-dinner option.
The Thiripyitsaya Sky Lounge is the perfect locale. Perched atop Sakura Tower, it’s the highest restaurant in the city and offers unparalleled views of the downtown area, Yangon River and inner suburbs. This wonderful backdrop pairs delightfully with the extensive menu, which offers a wide variety of delectable Asian, Western and fusion dishes. For everything from wedding celebrations to intimate dinners, corporate lunches to birthday parties, Sky Lounge is the ideal setting for your next special event.
