Belmond Governor’s Residence
Situated in Yangon’s leafy Embassy District, there’s an air of calm throughout our hotel. Stretch out beside the fan-shaped swimming pool, or relax with a treatment in the Governor’s Oasis spa. Dusk is the perfect time to enjoy our famous “Mandalay Sour” cocktail, before a dinner served alfresco by candlelight.
A romantic, colonial-style mansion dating from the 1920s, Belmond Governor’s Residence is one of the most timeless luxury hotels in Yangon. Set in a verdant garden dotted with lotus pools, the hotel is truly magical at the end of a day spent visiting the majestic Shwedagon Pagoda. Dinner is served alfresco in the balmy evening air by lantern-light, as tropical fragrances scent the breeze.
Perched on the edge of fast-paced Yangon in the leafy Embassy Quarter, Belmond Governor’s Residence is a tranquil haven. Exotic gardens, fan-cooled verandas and carved teak details conjure up the elegance of a bygone era. Stretch out indoors among sumptuous silks and crisp linens, or step outside for a secluded cocktail under the stars. For an extra touch of luxury, treat yourself to a spacious suite.
