The Hotel by the Red Canal is – in our humble opinion - the best boutique hotel in Mandalay.

The hotel features teak, rattan and mother of pearl inlaid furniture, with Myanmar marble lining the bathroom walls. The four types of rooms and suites each represent one of the major ethnic groups in Burma. The Chin and Shan suites feature a balcony overlooking the swimming pool and garden, while an outdoor shower with a slate wall of cascading water is the highlight of the Kachin suites, ideal for honeymooners.

The Spice Garden restaurant serves excellent northern Indian cuisine and Burmese specialities in an elegant dining room or on the terrace overlooking the garden that inspired the name.

The Prana Spa offers a menu of Ayurvedic, holistic and natural body treatments to relax, awaken and revitalise guests after a day's exploration of the city.

Why We Love It

The owner is Indian, hence the emphasis on - delicious - Indian cuisine.
