The Strand Hotel

The Strand Hotel

“The finest hostelry East of Suez” Author John Murray in his 1911 ‘Handbook for Travellers in India, Burma and Ceylon’ declared The Strand as “the finest hostelry East of Suez”, a title it has enjoyed for more than 100 years. Built in 1901 and acquired soon after by the Sarkies brothers, famed for the likes of Raffles in Singapore and The E&O in Penang, The Strand Hotel remains one of Asia’s most enduring and awe-inspiring Colonial landmarks.

  The hotel’s 1989 restoration, which remained true to its architectural past under renowned hotelier Adrian Zecha, in 2016 once again The Strand emerges from a programme of thoughtful refreshments. The beloved chandeliers, charming ceiling fans and authentic period furnishings, which have long served as the backdrop to this singular meeting place of famous explorers and raconteurs, remain. Past meets present among strategic upgrades including advanced air-conditioning and in-room technologies, as well as in the extensive staff training to ensure flawless personalised service which lives up to this grand and glamorous setting

The Strand Cruise
The Strand Cruise was custom built in 2015 in a shipyard in Yangon with a shallow 1.4m draft, designed to successfully navigate the shallow rivers of Myanmar. The 61m ship carries up to 50 passengers in 25 cabins along the mystical waterways of the Ayeyarwady River. Named and styled after its sister property, the luxury heritage hotel, The Strand Yangon, The Strand Cruise offers all the features passengers would expect from a Strand product, from flawless service and gourmet a la carte cuisine, to signature elements celebrating the golden age of the Strand as a meeting place for explorers and raconteurs.

The Strand Yangon was one of the first luxury colonial outposts to open in South East Asia, founded in 1901 by famous hoteliers, the Sarkies brothers, and remains one of the most architecturally beautiful landmarks in the region. In 2016, The Strand Yangon entered a new era as it reopened after a six-month restoration project that saw the iconic hotel ushered elegantly into the 21st century. The renovation project preserved the heritage at the heart of the hotel and honoured the Strand’s part in Myanmar’s history whilst creating a more relaxed, refined and glamorous setting for 21st century travellers.

The Strand Cruise has all the features passengers would expect from a luxury river cruise experience, from flawless service standards to insightful guides and exceptional levels of comfort throughout the ship.
