Built in 1901, The Strand is a Yangon heritage hotel without peer. It is a stately Victorian icon, beautifully renovated, with two wings centred on a lobby lounge with a black and white marble floor.
This Asian luxury resort offers large suites with lazily whirring ceiling fans, teak floors and luxurious bathrooms. For a really grand experience, there’s the spacious Strand Suite with its own verandah overlooking the river.
From the famous Strand Bar, move on to The Café looking into the street, or to the famous Strand Grill with its elegant Bagan prints, chandeliers and glass roof. Afternoon tea is a Yangon institution, or enjoy Burmese music in the Lobby Lounge.
Adding to the splendid old-world ambience, is a valuable private collection of local art and antiques. As a well located Myanmar business and small meetings hotel, The Strand offers a Business Centre - with Internet access - and conference facilities. The Strand is described by leading online travel magazine Smart Travel Asia as "the elite period doyenne of the Yangon hotel scene."
