Hotel by the Red Canal, Mandalay

Mere minutes from Mandalay Palace in the old royal capital of Myanmar, the Hotel by the Red Canal is an oasis of lush greenery and soothing water features.

This delightful boutique-style hotel provides a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of Mandalay. Named and decorated after Myanmar’s four major ethnic groups, the hotel’s 25 compact rooms offer a superior range of amenities alongside beautifully handcrafted teak and rattan furnishings. Select rooms also come with their own terraces, balconies or outdoor rain-showers. A small pool, fitness studio and impressive underground spa – complete with natural mud walls, terracotta tiles and running water features – make up the wellness facilities. 

The hotel’s restaurant, the Spice Garden, offers what is arguably Mandalay’s finest dining experience, with delicious Myanmar and Indian dishes prepared fresh daily, alongside a selection of international favourites. Meanwhile, you’ll find the hotel is ideally placed for exploring attractions such as the Mandalay Palace, Shwenandaw Monastery and U Bein Bridge, whilst a short taxi or trishaw ride will bring you into the downtown area with its bustling night markets.
