The Strand Hotel Yangon is the reason for me to make a trip to Yangon because of the beauty and the charm stand out in all magazines and internet. The hotel built in 1901 and still remains the charm till now. Exterior building is stunning and once I step inside I feel like walking into the time of the past...

An old classic. Beautifully restored to its glory and traditionally run. The old way when service was truly exactly that. A butler who looks after you with a smile. All the staff that we came into contact with, were outstanding. The lunch at the café was excellent. The rooms were so comfortable, so reminiscent of the Raffles in Singapore. Location...

Our room was amazing and extremely comfortable. The most comfortable bed. The service was amazing - full butler service. The fine dining restaurant was delicious with excellent service. We also enjoyed the atmosphere in the bar which was really busy on Friday night. We only had one night but wish we had longer. The staff were amazing and you certainly...

As I arrived at the airport in Yangon in Myanmar, the limo service from the hotel was waiting for me with a welcoming smile. As the door opened to the lobby, I was greeted by warm and utter professional service from the hotelier himself, Mr Olivier and his attentive staff. The suite had a luxurious old world feel with extreme...

My husband and I oroughly enjoyed our stay at The Strand, from the simple elegance to the outstanding service. The rooms were spacious and luxurious, with beautifully appointed sitting area and desk. An oasis in the midst of the heat and bustle of Yangon, there is no doubt that we would happily return to The Strand on any future visits...

When you enter the hotel, your mood changes and you are brought back to the past and yet given modern amenities. The manager meets you , you sit down in the luxurious lobby drinking your welcome drink with cold towels while they check you in. No fuzz. Luxury, exclusivity and the fine things of life is how you describe the...

Beautifully renovated historical hotel with fabulous food and service. The Sarky's Bar has the colonial atmosphere which brings us back in time. Their butler service is impeccable. The Strand Cruise is exceptional. We were extremely impressed with their ultimate service, attention to every detail, from the whole team. Their kindness to my husband who has difficulty in walking, is unparallel....

For a very reasonable price stayed in a classic suite room with tons of space...just a business trip for a single night but would gladly have stayed a week. Excellent service from the restaurant to the bellman, and a fantastic bar. Atmospheric to say the least. Just stay there.

We had a fabulous time at this beautiful hotel. Everyone looked after us marvellously. We were very impressed by the standard of the cuisine in the restaurant and the cocktails in the bar (which also serves canapés / interesting small snacks to have with cocktails which we really loved). There were some fabulous dishes on the menu. I particularly enjoyed...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Strand Yangon closed on 1 May until November 2016 to undergo a complete facelift that will return the award-winning heritage hotel to its former glory. Constructed in 1901 in a classic colonial style, the hotel will retain its heritage architectural details, such as marble and teak wood flooring, ceiling fans, chandeliers, lacquer wood furniture, Burmese antiques, and signature service elements, while being given a complete upgrade and contemporary twist through a refreshed colour palette and subtle decorative details. The interiors of all the hotel's 31 suites will be redecorated in keeping with the Strand's legendary style and elegance, while at the same time updated with the latest technology, including new air conditioning, sound and communications systems. The Strand is famous around the world for its flawless, personalised service and suites will continue to be attended by the hotel's team of highly trained butlers. Once "The finest hostelry East of Suez", we are very eager to reveal the new Strand and bring it back to its former glory. Please continue visiting us for updates and bookings. ... more   less
