The Strand Hotel, Yangon is a historic property originally built in 1901 by the Sarkies Brothers (founders of the iconic Raffles Hotel in Singapore). It is a charming colonial building in downtown Yangon, just across from the Yangon River. The hotel is an all suite property with just 31 guestrooms which are large and airy with high ceilings. Teakwood floors, hand carved wood frame beds and ceiling fans round out the colonial charms, tastefully balanced by traditional Burmese lacquerware and antiquities in the bedrooms and separate sitting areas.
The hotel offers free wireless internet access in the public areas, a small gift shop, a jewellery and art gallery and a professional Spa service. The Strand Bar is great for an end of day drink and on Friday evenings, stop in for Happy Hour which is a longstanding Yangon tradition.
