The Strand Yangon 

Located on the banks of the Yangon River, The Strand is housed in a restored Victorian mansion that exudes history. It was built in 1901 by the ambitious Sarkies Brothers at a time when the country was ruled by the British. The Strand quickly became one of the Asia’s most prestigious hotels, hosting such guests as Prince Edward, George Orwell and Noël Coward. Almost a century later, legendary hotelier Adrian Zecha cast his gaze on the historic property, which had fallen into disrepair, and set out to restore its legacy. Today the white-washed façade, teak-framed windows and elegant interiors are newly splendid. The lobby, with its cane furniture, soaring ceilings and jasmine perfumed air, transports guests to the bygone era when Rudyard Kipling and Somerset Maugham were in residence.

Polished teak floor to high-pitched ceiling, each of The Strand’s 31 suites have been elegantly ushered into the 21st century with vintage inspired textiles, original artwork and calming neutral hues. All retain their timeless enchantments and lacquer craftsmanship for which Myanmar is renowned, while modern technologies and state-of-the-art communication systems bring this classic Grande Dame resolutely into the present. Near floor-to-ceiling windows welcome Yangon’s abundance of natural light during the day while The Strand’s dedicated, English-speaking butlers attend to guests’ needs around the clock, providing tailored attendance whether it’s through in-room dining, recommending places to visit or assisting guests throughout their stay.

Exuding a timeless elegance, the Strand Grill features a colonial-style dining room and a menu of Mediterranean, Asian and Continental cuisine.

This awe-inspiring hotel is located on Strand Road in the heart of downtown Yangon, near to the Yangon River and the main commercial and diplomatic district.

Highly-acclaimed as one of Southeast Asia’s grand colonial hotels, this national landmark was built in 1901 and maintains a sense of charm and history.
