Unwind in style just heartbeats away from Yangon

A romantic, colonial-style mansion dating from the 1920s, Governor's Residence is one of the most timeless luxury hotels in Yangon.

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.
