Popa Mountain Resort, Mt Popa

Mid-range - ££


The Popa Mountain Resort has a fantastic position on Mt Popa – sitting right on the volcanic peak. Lush green forests surround the resort, so you’ll feel even further away from Bagan, the ancient city that sits below. A trip here is a glorious retreat from the arid city and offers a sense of peace and tranquillity that’s hard to match.

There’s a choice of rooms here, all of which are beautifully furnished and hidden among the trees. There’s even a work desk where you can write about your travel adventures. The main difference between the rooms is the view, and whether you opt for a garden view or a view of the local monastery. Whichever you choose, the time you spend looking out on your private balcony will become a treasured memory.


The Popa Mountain Resort has a restaurant serving traditional Chinese, Myanmar and Western cuisines – make sure you sample as much as you can during your stay. Eat inside, or out on the terrace. Then head to Tectona Bar for a quiet drink looking out over the mountain range.

The glorious infinity pool flows over the mountainside. Sit here, gaze out over the valley and take in the astounding views of the Taung Kalat Monastery. Come here at sunset for the most incredible experience!

For something even more relaxing, head to the resort’s spa for a facial, massage or one of the local treatments. A visit here will ease your aching muscles and leave you feeling refreshed.
