Bagan Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary Resort was established 30 years ago as the Government’s guesthouse for elite visitors. In 1996, it was taken over by Japanese investors and managers and has since then undergone extensive renovation, upgrading and expansion. The Resort has been host to international political and business leaders and celebrities, and is considered to be Bagan’s foremost hotel.

The Resort sprawls over 24 acres of landscaped gardens, which is home to mature tropical trees and flowering plants, as well as native birds and a number of small tame animals. Every morning our gorgeous peacocks, Myanmar's national bird, go for a walk in our garden. Oriented towards the west, the Resort revels in panoramic river views, glorious sunsets and silver moonglow, and a pervading atmosphere of profound peace, warmth and comfort.
