Lovely hotel in a peaceful setting


We stayed at the Belmond for 3 nights. The location of the hotel is convenient but very quiet. The gardens and pool area are outstanding - more like a botanic garden than a hotel! The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed, and the staff are friendly and very helpful. Breakfast in the outdoor eating area is delicious, and the dinner we ate at the hotel was also very enjoyable. The only thing I found slightly annoying was the lack of an iron/ironing board in the rooms. It was easy enough to make a call and get the items collected and ironed- however sometimes one has last-minute decisions or a change of mind and having an iron in the room gives a lot more flexibility than waiting for ironing to be delivered.

Excellent choice in Yangon

Myanmar was the last Asian country for me to visit and the Governor's Residence did not disappoint! This is a beautiful property. My accommodations & level of service we received were outstanding. The lush gardens and beautiful teak wood, provide an impressive welcome. Rooms are of generous size with all amenities you need. The property also has a wonderful tour desk to help with all your travel bookings prior to your arrival along with any arrangements once you arrive. I encourage you to book a food tour using a private driver/guide. We were impressed with the Burmese food. This property exceeded our expectations!
