Belmond Governor’s Residence, Yangon

A romantic, colonial-style mansion dating from the 1920s, Belmond The Governor's Residence is redolent of the days when it was home to the ruler of Burma's southern states.

A romantic, colonial-style mansion dating from the 1920s, Belmond The Governor's Residence is redolent of the days when it was home to the ruler of Burma's southern states. With its fan-cooled verandas and teak armchairs, this delightful Belmond hotel in the elegant Embassy Quarter of Yangon (formerly Rangoon), conjures up a bygone era while offering every modern pleasure. 

Set in a verdant garden dotted with lotus pools, the hotel is truly magical at the end of a day spent visiting the majestic Shwedagon Pagoda. Dinner is served alfresco in the balmy evening air by lantern-light, as tropical fragrances scent the breeze.

Why we like it

  • Located in the Embassy Quarter of Yangon
  • Stunning colonial architecture
  • Rooms decorated with silk panels and elaborate Burmese wood carvings
  • Close to the main cultural attractions including golden pagodas, National Museum and Bogyoke market
