Myanmar – A Journey Back in Time When Staying at Belmond Governor’s Residence
Unwind as you enter this colonial-style 1920s mansion, where old-world elegance meets rich Burmese beauty.
Belmond Governor’s Residence is one of the most timeless luxury hotels in Yangon.
Perched on the edge of fast-paced Yangon in the leafy Embassy Quarter, Belmond Governor’s Residence is a tranquil haven. Exotic gardens, fan-cooled verandas and carved teak details conjure up the elegance of a bygone era.
Relax indoors among sumptuous silks and crisp linens, or step outside beside the fan-shaped swimming pool, relax with a treatment in the Governor’s Oasis spa or enjoy a secluded cocktail under the stars. Dusk is the perfect time to enjoy the famous “Mandalay Sour” cocktail, before a dinner is served alfresco in the balmy evening air by lantern-light, as tropical fragrances scent the breeze.
While in Yangon, don’t miss visiting the grand, shimmering pagodas and stupas – an iconic image of Yangon. Arrange a trip to the sacred Shwedagon Pagoda, which is plated with more than 8,000 solid gold slabs.
Yangon markets also provide a feast for all the senses. Pick up the perfect souvenir at Bogyoke Market or browse through the rich fabrics at Mingalar Market.
