Belmond Governor’s Residence is famous for being Yangon’s most charming hotel that attracts millions of tourists on your best Myanmar tours. That beauty appears from the moment tourists are welcomed by antique gong chimes at the doors. The hotel lies on a quiet backstreet in the leafy embassy district. It is modeled on a 1920s colonial style mansion, thereby the existence of fan-cooled verandas and hand-carved teak furniture – features of the bygone era of colonial Burma – causes no surprise.
This luxury governor hotel has 49 spacious bedrooms, lush tropical gardens, two breezy restaurants, a cozy bar and a gorgeous swimming pool for tourists to enjoy luxury travel Myanmar. Clearly, you can laze around on the sun loungers beneath the shade of a traditional Burmese parasol.
Each bedroom is spacious with 39 square meters, and you can find a four-poster King hand carved teak bed at the center stage. The bedroom is decked out with billowing mosquito nets during turndown service every evening. In the large lounge area, there is an L-shaped sofa bedecked with silk cushions. This brings comfortable accommodation to children and can serve as a bed. Another outstanding feature is the bathroom which is large and has a large stone bath with shower.
All the mod-cons that you expect from a luxury hotel for your best Myanmar tours are included in this colonial governor hotel, namely mini bar, safe, TV with satellite channels, hairdryer, tea/coffee making, slippers and bathrobes and a lovely welcome fruit basket with local tropical fruit.
A fan-shaped swimming pool is undoubtedly the highlight of the hotel. This is a source of relaxation for you to cool off after a hot day of sightseeing on the dusty streets of Yangon.
Friendly place to children
The large shallow area makes the hotel favored by many families because this makes it easy for the kids to play on their own while their parents are lazily watching from our sun loungers.
