Popa Mountain Resort

Popa Mountain Resort is perched on the steep hillside peak of Mount Popa. Situated 2,500 feet above sea level, the scenery is simply breathtaking giving an unobstructed view over central Burma’s green, and far reaching plains. Within its panorama is the Popa Taung Kalatt monastery built at the top of an extinct volcano, and accessible by a 777 step climb to the top. It is an enchanting sight to behold.

The Popa Mountain Resort has three categories of wooden cabin-style room, the best being those that look out to the monastery. The rooms are rustic and befitting to its natural environment, yet also cosy and comfortable and the perfect place to relax after a day hiking the hills. The highlight of this hotel, in addition to leafy walkways and lightly manicured grounds, is the hilltop infinity pool in prime position at the edge of the resort.

The hotel's facilities include a hillside restaurant, viewpoint bar and spa. There is also a 9-hole golf course just a 20-minute drive away. This is an idyllic retreat for those wanting to get back to nature and explore the untouched Burma (Myanmar) countryside.

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.

Client Testimonials

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
