Bagan Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary Resort, Bagan, Myanmar (Burma)

With an enviable location on the banks of the Ayeyarwady River, the Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary Resort has 76 guest rooms set in extensive gardens. The bungalow-style rooms have either garden or river views and have the usual amenities to make for a comfortable stay. The eight river-facing suites offer some of the most tasteful accommodation in Bagan. Each open onto a wide veranda from which to view dramatic sunsets and comprise a separate living area to the bedroom (some have four-poster beds) and well-appointed bathrooms that include a large terrazzo bathtub. The suites are located away from the main reception and restaurant to ensure privacy and quiet.

The restaurant benefits from a large terrace looking out to the pool and river beyond, where guests can enjoy alfresco meals throughout the day. The various menus, offering a range of local, Asian and Western fare, take advantage of vegetables and herbs grown in the resort's own garden. The Pavilion Lounge is a perfect spot for enjoying a sundowner. There is a large swimming pool and highly-regarded spa.
