Miranda is here to help give you the inside track.

A member of the Belmond Hotels group, the 49 room hotel harks back to a bygone era thanks to wooden roof fans and teak armchairs, but has all the comfort of a modern and refurbished hotel. All the spacious rooms are luxuriously decorated with teak furniture covered in cool cottons and silks, and have handmade free-form baths. Elsewhere there is elegant furniture, intricate woodwork carving and local works of art on display.

Top quality Burmese cuisine and western favourites are on offer at the Mandalay Restaurant, while the open-air Mindon Lounge and the stylish Kipling Bar are the perfect places to relax after a day's sightseeing with a long, cold cocktail.

Why we love it

No prizes for guessing that this beautifully restored teak mansion was once the colonial residence of the British Governor of Burma. Interestingly, Burma was originally designated a province of the British Raj in India rather than as a separate country.

The Strand Hotel, Yangon

‘Timeless elegance with a colonial twist’, is perhaps the best way to sum up the feel of The Strand Hotel, and this is made particularly evident by the stunning Victorian colonnades that sweep the entrance.
