The Strand


Built in 1901, the Strand is undoubtedly Yangon's grandest hotel, exuding charm and splendour of a bygone era. Furnished with marble floors, chandeliers and antiques, it is the ultimate spot to discover Yangon's magnificent atmosphere in style. Having undergone an extensive renovation in 2016, The Strand has been gracefully brought into the modern era, while still retaining the elegance and style that sets it apart from other hotels.


  • Close to Historical Yangon
  • Traditional Myanmar Massage
  • Grand atmosphere
  • Impeccable service


Yangon, Myanmar

Best time to go

The perfect time to visit would be between November and February to avoid the sweltering heat of March - May and the monsoon season of June - October

Our thoughts

This regal three-story Victorian luxury hotel has welcomed many international personalities: from British royalty to Rudyard Kipling, Somerset Maugham and other members of the literary intelligentsia. It still maintains the same high standard to all guests.

Decadent to sleep in and close to all the delights Yangon has to offer.

The Strand Cafe

Decorated with teak-framed windows looking out onto scenic Strand Road, The Strand Caf'e is a charming corner from which to observe the city's bustle. Tile floors inlaid with teak, dining chairs of sturdy egg-cane rattan and black-lacquered ceiling fans add that magical bygone-era accent. Breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner are served daily, with the menu featuring both western and Burmese cuisine.

The Strand Grill

The Strand Grill is, without a doubt, one of Yangon's finest dining rooms. Enriched with large black-lacquered prints from Bagan and sparkling chandeliers, the restaurant exudes the grandeur of the 1920s and '30s.

Open for dinner only (and lunch on request).
