GOVERNOR’S RESIDENCE, A BELMOND HOTEL, YANGON
35 Taw Win Road, Yangon, Myanmar

Yangon is a welcome shock to the system. This vibrant and energetic city corners the land between the Yangon and Bago rivers, just a short distance upstream from the Andaman Sea. Myanmar’s former capital is an ever-evolving fusion of old and new. At its centre, the vast gold-tipped spires of Shwedagon Pagoda dominate the skyline—a constant reminder that this city is still Myanmar’s cultural heart.

Head south-west of the shining beacon and you’ll happen upon the leafy Embassy Quarter. This is where the city’s colonial heritage is most visible. Grand 1920s-style residences peak out between lush tropical gardens. Instantly recognisable, is Governor’s Residence—the most beautiful hotel in Yangon. Myanmar still holds its old-world charm and at our urban paradise, you’ll rediscover the age of timeless romance.
