The finest hostelry East of Suez’ wrote early 20th century travelers about this 1901-built three story Victorian considered one of Southeast Asia’s grand colonial hotels and still one of its most awe inspiring.
High ceilings and vast spaces are among the now rare luxuries in each of our thirty-one Suites that will remind guests of times gone by. Teakwood floors, hand carved wood frame beds and ceiling fans round out the colonial charms, tastefully balanced by Burmese lacquerware and antiquities in the bedroom and separate sitting area. Near floor to ceiling windows let in Yangon’s abundance of natural light during the day while our team of dedicated butlers attend to guests’ needs around the clock.
A SENSE OF HISTORY
First impressions have been known to silence even our most well travelled guests at The Strand Grill which exudes history under its soaring vaulted ceiling with sparkling chandeliers and a skylight illuminating the elegant black & white marble floor. For casual gatherings, slide into a padded egg-cane rattan chair under whirling ceiling fans in The Strand Café with its endlessly entertaining views along Strand Road from grand teak framed windows. Friday evenings, stop in for Happy Hour at The Strand Bar, a longstanding Yangon tradition.
Soaring colonial ceilings, polished teak floors and Burmese antiques create a unique sense of place inside The Strand’s singular wellness enclave. Intimate yet spacious at 55 square metres, our one room spa can be yours exclusively or opt to share the unwind time together on two well padded massage tables. Highly trained therapists knead away jetlag, muscle aches and city stress with traditional Myanmar therapies
