Belmond Governor’s Residence
A romantic, colonial-style mansion dating from the 1920’s, the Belmond Governor’s Residence is redolent of the days when it was home to the ruler of Myanmar’s southern states. With its fan-cooled verandas and teak armchairs, the delightful Belmond hotel in the elegant Embassy Quarter of Yangon, conjures up a bygone era, while offering every modern pleasure.Set in a verdant garden dotted with lotus pools, the hotel is magical at the end of a day spent visiting the majestic Shwedagon Pagoda. Dinner is served al fresco in the balmy evening air by lantern light, as tropical fragrances scent the breeze. Carved teak and sumptuous silks combine to make the hotel’s spacious rooms both fresh and timeless. The rooms are a haven of tranquility in the heart of Yangon’s Embassy Quarter.
