The Aye Yar River View Resort started operating as a guesthouse of the Burma Airways Corporation in 1958 and was refurbished in 2008. The upgraded lobby, revived guestrooms and refreshing landscaping echo an old Bagan atmosphere with an irresistible charm. The resort was built on one of old Bagan’s Ayeyarwaddy prime riverside locations on a sprawling 10 acres of tropical gardens in the heart of Old Bagan. It is a 10 minute drive from Nyaung Oo Airport.
The Aye Yar River View Resort offers a range of accommodations designed to suit the demands on any traveler. There are 103 spacious contemporary rooms fitted with indigenous handmade furnishings and a private patio or balcony with panoramic views of the Ayeyarwaddy River, ancient pagodas, or gardens. All rooms and suites are equipped with air conditioning, TV with international cable channels, IDD telephone, writing desk, tea/coffee making facilities, hot and cold shower with bathtub, and complimentary mineral water.
