Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary Resort
Bagan

Situated just outside of Old Bagan, the spacious Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary Resort has a brilliant location on the banks of Myanmar's Irrawaddy River.

The resort has 127 guest rooms and suites, each decorated in a simple Burmese style, using hardwoods and local textiles. The original bungalows, which date from the 1970s, are identical in design and spread out across manicured gardens facing the river. Basic, but not without their charms, the bungalows vary in location and view. However, we would strongly recommend the eight suites in two-storey buildings on the river front, ideal for guests who are looking for a higher level of comfort and privacy. All have Irrawaddy River views from their verandahs and the suites have a sitting area, a bedroom and a well-appointed bathroom including a terrazzo bathtub.

The large and scenic swimming pool is surrounded by a sun deck, and a range of western and Asian meals are served on the terrace, or in the Pavilion Lounge restaurant – both of which have stunning views of the Irrawaddy River, especially at sunset. Wi-fi is available only in reception and there is a small spa and gift shop on site.

Client Testimonials

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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
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
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!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, 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!

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
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
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
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
- Anonymous, India
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!
