Mandalay Hill Resort Hotel
Grade - First Class
This crescent shaped first class hotel sits at the foot of picturesque Mandalay Hill and offers superb views of the city, studded with a myriad of pagodas, temples and monasteries. Away from the views, the location makes it an ideal base to explore Mandalay and beyond.
Within the beautiful grounds you’ll find a large outdoor swimming pool, 5 restaurants, fitness centre and spa.
Each of the 206 rooms is designed in classical Oriental and Burmese style and make best use of the hotel’s position by offering views over the city, Royal Palace and Irrawaddy River. Choose from 7 levels of accommodation. All are air-conditioned with safety deposit box, wireless Internet and ensuite bathroom.
Bagan King Hotel
Grade - Boutique First Class
Just a five-minute walk from the Royal Palace, the Bagan King Hotel is perfectly placed to enjoy the delights of Mandalay. Although the exterior is never going to win an award for architecture, the interior is a beguiling mix of ancient and modern, creating a beautiful bolt-hole in the city that feels authentically Burmese. A welcome addition to Mandalay’s small selection of good quality boutique hotels.
The semi open restaurant and bar is the main draw, as whether you’re looking out at the city over breakfast wondering what the day holds or relaxing over a beer or cocktail while the sun sets, it’s a great place to be.
The 29 rooms are dominated by the traditional dark wood furnishings and are designed to reflect the strong artistic traditions of Mandalay, from the bronze wall lamps to the teak bedstead. All are air-conditioned with safety deposit box, wifi and ensuite bathroom.
Rupar Mandalar Resort
Hotel Grade - First Class Villas
The perfect choice is you’d like a more relaxed stay in Mandalay. The Rupar Mandalay is a villa style hotel that sits in 5 acres of lush landscaped gardens just to the east of the city. The villas are sprinkled across the grounds in relatively private pockets shrouded by trees and exotic plantings. Close enough to the city (15 minutes) to visit during the day, but away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Within the grounds you’ll find the largest pool in Mandalay, a spa, tennis court and fully equipped gym. There are a number of dining options inside and out, as well as private dining.
The 46 guestrooms are all generous in size and decorated with Burmese carvings, rattan furniture, teakwood-panelling and silk textiles. All are air-conditioned with safety deposit box, wifi and ensuite bathroom.
