Memorable stay and highly recommended


The governors residence is a lovely oasis in the city. The property is beautiful and has a lovely charm of being a ~40 room hotel. The rooms are very comfortable and the entire hotel has a lovely warmth around it. However, the service makes it stand out. Eddy, the GM was personable and warm and the executive chef made us feel even more at home. Incidentally, we thought the dinner here was better than Le Plantueur that had been recommended! The hospitality of the entire staff was impeccable. Overall, it was perfect. Lovely to see some ducks and peacocks walking around the gardens. We had stayed a night at the Strand before going to Bagan and Inle Lake. While that was also charming and lovely, my vote would whole hardheartedly go to the Governors residence.

Wonderful Hotel

New York City, New York

The hotel was better than we expected. The staff across the board was great. They had commissioned art from local artists. There were peacocks and ducks at the hotel grounds that were fun to have around. The food was great. The pool was great. The hotel arranged for a tour guide who was really nice and helpful. All-in, we loved the experience.
