The Strand Hotel

The Strand Yangon

When The Strand opened its doors in 1901, it was the third hotel of the Sarkies brothers (after the Eastern & Oriental Penang and the Raffles in Singapore). Soon it became “the finest hostelry East of Suez”. At that time, Yangon was the third largest harbour in the British Indian empire and was in need to accommodate the Western travellers coming to Asia.

After changing owners several times and hosting Japanese militaries authorities during World War II, it finally reopened, beautifully restored, in 1993. You can find in its guest book people like Georges Orwell, Rudyard Kipling, Somerset Maugham as well as kings, presidents and many more… The Strand is listed on Yangon City Heritage buildings and is one of Asia’s few Grand Colonial Hotels.

It is now an all-suite amazing Boutique Hotel, with a recently added swimming pool and spa, and an exceptional high level of services (24-h butler and much more) tested and approved by our team at Colonial Atmosphere!
