Let us send you tips for travelling through Myanmar and stories from the road …
Sitting grandly on the Strand Road is the Rosewood Yangon. The 1927 New Law Courts of British Burma has been meticulously restored. The hotel incorporates a full plume of contemporary amenities while preserving the essence of the past.
Everything has been thought through to the finest detail: from the coffee table books lying open in the hallways to the type-face used on the menus. Nova restaurant is a European brasserie while Southern Chinese cuisine is available in a separate restaurant. Asian snacks on offer in the Y Bar and classic bites with whiskey and wine in the courtyard.
FLASH POINT: Half the rooftop of Rosewood is taken up with a luxury swimming pool. Undoubtedly, the finest views for bathers in Yangon.
City of dreams and gold, Yangon is erupting with the energy to spurn its shackles.
Despite challenges from young pretenders, this hotel still remains one of the hippest hotels.
‘The finest hostelry East of Suez’, the Strand remains the grandest places to stay in Yangon.
