Would give this place seven stars for flawless service, with complex requests executed with grace, a smile and never a reminder required. How do they do it? But we'll come to that later. First, the property itself -- a tranquil oasis, so centrally located in Yangon! The mosquito netted beds, simple, classy teak furniture, the pool, the large, cool verandahs,... More

The hotel is close to all the city attractions but hidden in its own oasis. The service and staff are excellent. The pool and pool area is big, quiet and relaxing. The food selection at the restaurant offers a variety of foods that is prepared to perfection. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. I hope to visit this property again... More

Gorgeous hotel!! They have an splendid breakfast buffet that is served very early so you can have it even if your flight is early. The gardens are beautiful and every room has a nice view of them. In the shop you can find beautiful Asian crafts. The service, as in most Burmese hotels, is superb.

We concluded probably our most memorable trip for some time, across Myanmar, in the governor's residence, Yangon. It's difficult to describe the experience in words. This is the highest luxury, most likely the most opulent hotel in Myanmar, and easily one of the best in the whole of Asia. Service - absolute first class, acute attention to detail and the... More
