Hotel by the Red Canal
Mandalay

The Hotel by the Red Canal is a stylish boutique hotel perfectly located in the centre of Mandalay's main sites.

The small but perfectly-formed rooms are decorated with teak and rattan furnishings and traditional Myanmarese fabrics. The building is constructed of a warm polished wood that follows all through the hotel corridors, where guests go barefoot or in hotel slippers, and so you instantly feel at home.

The Hotel by the Red Canal gives a level of attention to detail missing from the other properties in Mandalay, with small touches such as fresh flowers and a good range of toiletries to make your stay just that much more pleasant. The beautiful gardens are well-maintained, and the small pool is surrounded by rich foliage, hiding swimmers from view in their little oasis.

There is a gym and spa and complimentary Wi-fi is available throughout the hotel. The staff are a delight and service is exceptional. The Indian owner has gained a well-earned reputation for the Indian food served at the renowned Spice Garden restaurant on site, which is delicious and an Ampersand favourite. In our opinion, all of these things more than compensate for the slightly petite bedrooms, and it remains one of our top properties in Mandalay.

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
