Rupar Mandalar Resort – an affordable resort in Mandalay
A lot of tourists say that Rupar Mandalar Resort has a “weird location”.

However, the resort provides really good accommodations at a reasonable price. The 44 rooms are designed in single-storey house, full of modern amenities and surrounded by lush green gardens. Other facilities include restaurants and lounge, swimming pool, health and beauty spa. The facilities are so good that they have been marked 10 points in Agoda.com. The room rate is only from $105.
The resort serves a variety of dishes such as: Myanmar, Thai, Chinese and European ones. In general, dining services are not really excellent but acceptable for the price.
