The Strand Yangon
Our rating: Luxury | Property style: Boutique Hotel
Declared "the finest hostelry East of Suez" by John Murray in his Handbook for Travellers written in the early 20th century, the 1901-built three storey 5 star hotel in Yangon remains one of Southeast Asia’s few grand colonial hotels and one of its most awe inspiring. High ceilings and vast spaces are among the now rare luxuries in each of the 31 Suites that will remind guests of times gone by in our central hotel in Yangon. Teakwood floors, hand carved wood frame beds and ceiling fans round out the colonial charms, tastefully balanced by Burmese lacquerware and antiquities in the bedroom and separate sitting area. The Strand Grill exudes history under its soaring vaulted ceiling with sparkling chandeliers and a skylight illuminating the elegant black & white marble floor. For casual gatherings, slide into a padded egg-cane rattan chair under whirling ceiling fans in The Strand Café with its endlessly entertaining views along Strand Road from grand teak framed windows. On Friday evenings, stop in for Happy Hour at The Strand Bar, a longstanding Yangon tradition.
