The Strand Hotel is a national landmark located in Yangon’s city center. This charming Victorian hotel offers a look into the past with grand colonial splender. The Strand is located in the heart of downtown Yangon, just a quick walk from Chinatown, Sule Pagoda and Aung Sang Market.
The hotel also offers traditional Myanmar massages and floral baths at the spa after a day of activity, free Wi-Fi in public areas and 24-hour room service.
The Strand Grill offers an elegant setting with live classical guitar playing and warm lighting. All-day dining and light snacks are offered at The Strand Café.
High ceilings and vast spaces are among the now rare luxuries in the modern era. Suites will remind guests of times gone by. 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. Near floor to ceiling windows let in Yangon’s abundance of natural light during the day while a team of dedicated butlers attend to all your needs.
The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
