The Governors Residence
Yangon (Rangoon)

The Governor's Residence is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Lux City Hotels

Our favourite hotel in Yangon, The Governor's Residence, surrounded by lotus gardens, is located in the Embassy Quarter of Yangon, close to the spectacular Shwedagon Pagoda. The hotel exudes style and history; the elegant main building is the original teak mansion built in 1920 as the residence for a governor from one of the southern states of Burma. The grounds frame this oasis of a hotel beautifully and are very well maintained; a koi carp pool and large red parasols provide bright splashes of colour throughout the gardens. The 49 large guest rooms and suites are decorated with teak furniture, tropical cottons and silks. Service is very attentive, there are spa rooms and complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel and is a good strength. The Kipling Bar and the open air Mindon Lounge serve snacks and drinks and overlook the large fan-shaped swimming pool. The hotel has a restaurant serving Burmese and Western cuisine.
