Hotel Introduction by The General Manager

To venture to Myanmar is to take the the road less travelled. Recent history has left the country closed off from the world and relatively untouched. Today visitors can discover vibrant cities, blissful beaches and resplendent Buddhist temples – the hallmark of this sacred land.


In the leafy Embassy Quarter, Belmond Governor’s Residence offers an idyllic escape. Dating from the 1920s, this mansion is a relic from a romantic era in which colonial grandeur is married with Burmese beauty. Set amid tropical gardens, the hotel is especially magical at sunset. After a day exploring, take time to reflect in the balmy evening air.

Hotel Highlights


Belmond Governor’s Residence 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.


Grand, shimmering pagodas and stupas are an enduring image of Yangon. Visit the sacred Shwedagon Pagoda, plated in over 8,000 gold slabs. Or, head to the Botataung or Sule Pagodas, said to enshrine the hair of the Buddha.
