Strand Hotel, Yangon

For well over a century, the colonial-style, three storey Strand has been welcoming visitors. Today it has a reputation for being one of Southeast Asia’s most distinguished hotels.

Like great art and fine wine, some hotels only improve with the passage of time. Built right at the end of the Victorian era, the Strand is one such establishment. The hotel revels in its grand colonial splendour, its near-mythical status and its five star luxury. As one of its modern-day guests, you will be able to relax and sink into the reassuring cushion that ultimate comfort, impeccable service and immaculate amenities provide.

Your suite will feature reminders of the past as well as modern facilities; teakwood floors and hand-carved bed frames. Burmese lacquerware and colonial cane furniture. Stylish bathrooms and accommodating sitting areas. Floor-to-ceiling windows with grand views. Even a dedicated butler - giving your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Myanmar the feeling of a state visit.
