“This Belmond hotel embodies the spirit of colonial Yangon and is ideally situated to visit the treasures of Myanmar’s capital city. The styling is superb: the fan-shaped green ceramic pool comes with oriental red umbrellas, and the open-air lounge still has the allure of a bygone era. It’s also a family-friendly hotel and children benefit from the magic that a stay here brings.”
Located in the Embassy District of Yangon, Belmond Governor’s Residence is a 1920s colonial-style mansion. Surrounded by landscaped gardens dotted with lotus pools, this romantic property has a timeless elegance, and is ideal for exploring Myanmar’s captivating capital.
The 49 luxurious guestrooms and suites hark back to a bygone era, with polished teak floors and furniture, crisp white linens, intricate Burmese woodcarvings, and vibrant silks. Contemporary comforts like large terrazzo bathtubs, heated floors and in-room media bring the rooms into the modern era.
Tuck into local curries at Burmese Curry Table, dine on Burmese and Western classics at Mandalay Restaurant, and savour afternoon tea with a twist in the elegant lounge.
Explore pagodas and stupas, discover Myanmar’s history in museums and galleries, and cycle through rural villages. Back at the hotel, enjoy cookery classes, refresh in the pool, indulge in a traditional spa treatment, and sip a signature cocktail in Kipling Bar.
