The Governor’s Residence, A Belmond Hotel, Yangon

The style and luxury of this beautiful hotel is evident in the 46 guestrooms and suites and their colonial décor. The serene pool is perfect for relaxation after exploring nearby Yangon.

Imagine settling back into a teak armchair, being served a gin-and-something sun-downer on the fan-cooled veranda of a 1920’s colonial-style mansion. The ice clinks in your glass, the heat drops out of the day and shadows start to lengthen across the lotus pools and manicured gardens beneath you.

A gentle breeze bears the early evening fragrance of exotic flowers. Behind you, lanterns are being lit ready for dinner, which will be served al fresco, in the soft night air. If you want the authentic experience of life in a bygone Burma, come and stay with the Governor.
