Beautiful, Stylish & Tasteful Hotel - Highly Recommended”

I stayed at the Governor's Residence for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. The decor in the 100 year old building is beautiful, stylish and tasteful and the location is peaceful, but within easy reach of vibrant downtown Yangon. The food quality and presentation are excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed the delicious Mohinga for breakfast, the Burmese curries in the Tiffin Box lunch and the sumptuous Afternoon Tea. The biggest asset is the staff however. The management have assembled a courteous, helpful and charming team who go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome and comfortable. I highly recommend a stay at the Belmond Governor's Residence.

Restored teak mansion”

History, activities, staff

A overnight stopover before flying back to HK in Yangon at the end of our trip. The Governor's Residence was a great place to relax and wind down. Pretty close to the airport. Breakfast was delicious and relaxing - champagne, a harpist, mohinga and more international foods with fresh juice (my girlfriend loved the Annie's yogurt) on the patio of the hotel - an old teak mansion from the colonial period. We did a yoga class that the hotel organized in the morning. Went to Shwedagon Pagoda and into the center of the city for lunch via 15 minute taxi ride. Hotel is walking distance to the old Pegu Club, which was really cool. Took a tour of Chinatown organized by the hotel. Spent a lot of time in the bar playing board games and relaxing before leaving for the airport (1am flight). Staff was nice and very accommodating. Definitely not a cheap place to stay - prices quoted in USD and many were basically the same as what I would expect in NYC - but the grounds were beautiful. My only real complaint is that we checked out around 3pm and weren't leaving until 10pm - left our luggage with the front desk and it didn't ever seem to be put away, just off to the side in plain view of anyone entering or exiting the hotel.

Oasis in bustling Yangon”

Spent a lovely two night break at the Governor's Residence while visiting Yangon. It is in the quieter Embassy district only a few mins drive from Shwedagong Pagoda so perfectly situated for a sunset visit. The hotel occupies a historic teak building with modern room extensions in similar style sitting in beautifully kept lush tropical gardens with a swimming pool surrounding the main building - a very welcome facility after a day out exploring busy Yangon. Nice spa too. Spacious and cool rooms. Delicious and varied buffet breakfast served on the shady verandah. We also tried the Burmese curry buffet one night which was a fantastic chance to experience a huge variety of dishes. One of the best things about the hotel was the friendliness and efficiency of the staff. Would highly recommend.

Oasis in Yangon”

Pool, service and grounds

We chose to splurge for our final night in Myanmar after 11 beautiful but dusty and hot days traveling around the country. Boy were we glad we did! We arrived relaxed from several days in Inle Lake to the jolt of the city. When the car pulled into the drive at Governor's Residence we relaxed again. A warm and friendly greeting plus a gong to announce each new guest. We were shown to our rooms (ready despite arriving well before check in) and told that we should think of the hotel as our second home. And so we became homebodies for two days - leaving only briefly to visit Shwedagon Pagoda at sunset and have dinner at Monson. Otherwise, we spent two lazy days by the pool being pampered by the excellent staff of the hotel. It is slow season and just prior to Thingyan so we were lucky that the hotel afforded us late check outs (4pm) which was exceptionally generous. Eating and drinking here will definitely put a dent in your wallet! Beer is twice the price we paid anywhere else. After a $60 lunch for 3 of us we decided to eat in the city rather than at the hotel for dinner. The curry table is $42++ which just seemed ridiculous even at a 5 star hotel - this is still Burma. Breakfast, which is included, is wonderful with a wide variety of choices and excellent quality. The rooms are simple but elegant. The bed and linens top rate. The bathroom very nice - although the tub a bit strange. Guests were invited to a special ceremony on our second day where the staff of the hotel offered alms to the local monks in advance of Thingyan. It was lovely to watch. The grounds are beautiful and the pool is huge, clean and fantastic. Every time a leaf would drop, someone from the staff would be there to fish it out. If you just looked like you needed something, a staff member would appear with a smile.
