The Singapore-owned Sedona Hotel is ideally located in the heart of Mandalay opposite the Royal Palace and within walking distance of local restaurants. The 247 well sized rooms and suites are comfortable and done out in a modern international style; many have wonderful views of the mile-long moat surrounding the Royal Palace walls. The hotel has a large swimming pool, a fitness centre, tennis courts, a ping pong table and a number of restaurants serving a variety of Western and Asian cuisine. There is a massage room and internet is available in the business centre.
To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
