Aureum Palace is a sprawling property of 87 rooms and villas, overlooking a dreamy scene of Bagan's pagoda-studded landscape across a lotus-dappled lake. Many of the rooms and villas overlook the temples themselves and offer good sunrise and sunset viewing points. The hotel comes complete with an extensive spa facility, banquet facilities, a fully-equipped fitness centre, a sauna, a nightclub and a huge swimming pool which has a stunning view of Bagan's pagoda-dotted landscape. It is located about half an hour drive away from Old Bagan and is a comfortable hotel to return to after visiting the temples.
