We (four women friends) stayed at Belmond's Govenor's Residence in Myanmar. The staff is by far the best service oriented staff I have encountered in my 20 years of traveling around the globe. They are warm, friendly and really make you feel that you are welcomed in their hotel. The guest relations staff was outstanding. In a country where we... More

Hands down, the best hotel in Myanmar and one of my favorite worldwide. The hotel itself is beautiful-- the bridge from the reception to the main building is a delight as is the well maintained swimming pool. The rooms are beautifully appointed and have every amenity you could request. The staff is very friendly and hardworking. The travel desk was... More

We stayed here four days while exploring Yangon and the surrounding area and found it to be a relaxing and soothing refuge from the hubbub of a busy city. Located in an affluent part of the city only a short drive from the city center the area is surrounded by numerous embassies as well as many very good restaurants. The... More

Our experience during the stay was exceptional from check-in to check-out. We had notified the hotel of an early check-in and were able to immediately go to our room following check-in. The included breakfast buffet was unbelievable and offered a great mix of local and international options. Rooms are large and offer a nice seating area. The bathroom offers a... More

We spent a week in Mianmar. Unforgettable experience. We chose The Governor's Residence in Yangon and it was a perfect choice. Fantastic hotel, with a spacious room, beautiful gardens, perfect service, huge swimming pool, wonderful breakfast. One of the best hotel I stayed ever.

We stayed here at the start and end of our trip. What a treat! Wonderful setting in an upmarket residential area so about 10 mins from centre of town (some might see this as a drawback, until they see the centre of town). Gorgeous tropical garden, huge swimming pool, well equipped and large bedrooms with very comfortable beds and proper... More

We (a couple in our early 30s) stayed here for a couple of days at the start of our journey around Myanmar, and loved it so much that we returned for another couple of days at the end of our trip. Each day the hotel offers a free activity. The 'travel like a local' tour took us on local trains... More

We stayed at the Governors Residence upon recommendation of a friend. It's a short cab ride outside the city but provides a peacefulness that you won't find if you stay in the city. The staff are very attentive and helpful, especially Ethan in guest relations, who helped me rebook my flights as I had trouble making outside calls. The Burmese... More

We stayed at the Governor's Residence as we usually like the hotels in the Belmond chain, so I suppose we had very high expectations. The hotel is beautiful, with lots of character and is an oasis of freshness and peace in Yangon. The staff is charming, helpful and very welcoming. However, the hotel clearly needs some refurbishing and is living... More
