About Us

An elegant teak mansion dating from the 1920';s this beautiful hotel is located in Yangon';s leafy Embassy Quarter, close to the Shwedagon pagoda and other major landmarks. Its extensive gardens, shaded by ancient trees, are set with lotus ponds and a fan-shaped swimming pool. Spectacular by lantern light at night, they are the perfect place to enjoy the Residence';s renowned Burmese and International cuisine. Relax in the library; enjoy a cocktail in the Kipling Bar; laze on colonial-style armchairs beneath the ceiling fans: this is where the novels of W. Somerset Maugham come to life.

Governor';s Rooms - Honouring the hotel';s history, Governor';s Rooms combine Burmese tradition with contemporary luxury.

Top Ten Tips for Visitors to Yangon Tea Time - Tea houses are an integral part of Myanmar daily life and are everywhere you look in Yangon. Morning, noon and night they are busy with friends socialising over a warming brew, families enjoying a snack and businessmen conducting important deals. Myanmar';s ';Green'; Beer -Over the past five years beer has become increasingly popular in Myanmar, reflected in the growth of domestic brands. Mandalay Brewery Factory now produces lager, strong ale, gold and spirulina Beers - the latter marketed as a high-quality health supplement and anti-aging drink. Spirulina is a natural micro-algae that is rich in antioxidants, amino acids, minerals and vitamins. Kandawgyi Park - Set at the heart of the city, Kandawgyi Park, around the lake of the same name, is a relaxing place to escape from the Yangon buzz. Early Morning Tai Chi -Every morning in the pre-dawn hours locals of all ages gather in the parks around Yangon to practice traditional tai chi. Several groups dot the parks, gracefully moving in sync. Watch or join in - you won';t regret the early start. Eating out on 19th Street - This small side street in the heart of Yangon';s Chinatown comes alive as the sun sets. A dozen or so barbecue shops set up on the street, with tables and chairs in the middle of the road. The locals gather here after work to enjoy cold draft beers and dinner. Grab a plastic basket, go to the stall and choose from a range of skewered meats, seafood and vegetables that will then be grilled and delivered hot to the table. Musicians and lottery and betel nut vendors wander along the street, adding to the atmosphere. Across the River - Most of Yangon';s residents live outside the city centre: many homes lie across the Yangon River, in villages that are just moments away yet feel far from the pace of downtown life. Catch a ferry for a glimpse of rural Myanmar lifestyles: locals commuting, coming into the city to shop or going home to their families. Aboard the Circular Train - The local slow train offers one of the most interesting, easy and relaxing ways to discover everyday Yangon life. As you trundle along you pass through the hectic hubbub of the city to the calm, green countryside. Places of Worship -Many different religions happily co-exist in Myanmar. Buddhism is the major faith, but there are many Hindu and Sikh places of worship, alongside Christian churches and a number of mosques. Glassware and Factories - Glassware is a Myanmar speciality and its importance is growing on the international stage. Glass pieces are strewn all over the place and if you spot a treasure, just point and it can be cleaned up for you. Every sale helps the owner to rebuild his business. Art and History - Yangon offers a great collection of art galleries (a selection of works is pictured, top) and is a great place for culture vultures. The Pansodan gallery for instance, shows traditional and more leading-edge works by famous Myanmar masters. Tour the gallery with an artist or local expert to gain deep insight into the Yangon cultural scene. Enjoy lunch or a cocktail at House of Memories restaurant, an old colonial style mansion set in a beautiful garden.

Best of the Best

Experience the timeless charm and elegance of Belmond Governor's Residence, set in a verdant urban enclave where you’ll find serenity yet enjoy all that Yangon has to offer. This romantic, colonial-style mansion holds infinite treasures, from the fusion of local flavors you’ll enjoy at the resort’s restaurants to the handcrafted art found in the boutique to the exquisite outdoor pool. And when you’re ready to explore the world outside your door, the opportunities are just as endless. Visit the Botahtaung and Sule Pagodas or the sacred Shwedagon Pagoda. Or pay your respects at the immaculately maintained Han Thar Wa De War Cemetery.

Advisor Tip

Soup for breakfast? Yes! Several distinctive soups are offered each morning at the hotel, but save room for other culinary treats like sticky rice in banana leaves. –Fran Kramer Rochester, New York

Govenor's Residence - An Oasis

By: Cathy


Reviewed on: 17 Mar 2018

The property is beautifully lush and the staff are very attentive. The rooms perfectly reflect the location, which is something I always look for when I travel. You know you're in Myanmar when you open your eyes in the morning. The spa is also very nice and the staff very good. The location is perfect: out of the hustle and bustle of Yangon but not too far out. This is especially important since we spent mid-day back at the hotel to avoid the hottest part of the day; very convenient to go back and forth. The pool area was an oasis in the mid-day heat.

Peacock Fancy

Reviewed on: 22 Mar 2018

Highly recommend!! From the moment you arrive, something truly special is awaiting. From the ginger tea and cold towels to fabulous accommodations with sunk in tub and mosquito nets. The pool was serenely nestled into the property and the spa services were a welcome relief from a long travel. And who can forget the peacock couple strolling the grounds,,
