Nestled near the city’s iconic hilltop Shwedagon Pagoda, the Savoy Hotel Yangon began life as a peaceful private residence. It is estimated that the construction of the building was accomplished in 1940s when the hotel served as the home of an American doctor whose name is today unknown. Unfortunately, some details were lost along the way as the building changed owners but in 1993, Yangon businesswoman Daw Kyi Kyi Tun purchased and renovated the property. It was reopened in 1995 as a hotel. Ever since, Savoy hosted artists, ministers and filmmakers including such prominent figures as Catherine Deneuve and others.
This boutique hotel aims to promote the richness of Myanmar heritage through architecture and art by organising some local artist exhibitions and concerts.
