The Strand Yangon

Yangon, Myanmar

Author John Murray in his 1911 ‘Handbook for Travellers in India, Burma and Ceylon’ declared The Strand as “the finest hostelry East of Suez”, a title it has enjoyed for more than 100 years. Built in 1901 and acquired soon after by the Sarkies brothers, famed for the likes of Raffles in Singapore and The E&O in Penang, The Strand Hotel remains one of Asia’s most enduring and awe-inspiring Colonial landmarks.

Like the hotel's 1989 restoration, which remained true to its architectural past under renowned hotelier Adrian Zecha, in 2016 once again The Strand emerges from a programme of thoughtful refreshments. The beloved chandeliers, charming ceiling fans and authentic period furnishings, which have long served as the backdrop to this singular meeting place of famous explorers and raconteurs, remain. Past meets present among strategic upgrades including advanced air-conditioning and in-room technologies, as well as in the extensive staff training to ensure flawless personalised service which lives up to this grand and glamorous setting

In February 2019, The Strand Yangon has become the first hotel in Myanmar to receive a commemorative blue plaque from the Yangon Heritage Trust in acknowledgement of its significance in the historical and cultural heritage of Yangon. The Strand Yangon is the 27th building or historical site in Yangon to be commemorated by a blue plaque. The Blue Plaque Project is supported by the Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) and implemented by the Yangon Heritage Trust (YHT).

Location

This hotel is located in the center of Yangon and within a 20-minute walk from Chinatown, Sule Pagoda and Aung Sang Market. It is a 20-minute drive from the National Museum and a 30-minute drive from Yangon International Airport.
