The Strand Yangon

Past Meets Present

The Strand Yangon

The Strand Yangon was one of the first luxury colonial outposts to open in Southeast Asia. Founded in 1901 by the famous hoteliers, the Sarkies brothers, it remains one of the most architecturally beautiful landmarks in the region. In November 2016, The Strand reopened after a six-month restoration project that saw the luxury heritage hotel ushered elegantly into the 21st century. The renovation project preserved the heritage at the heart of the hotel and honored The Strand's part in Myanmar's history, whilst creating a more relaxed, refined and glamorous setting for 21st-century travelers and explorers.

Hotel Tip

For a true local experience, climb aboard the Yangon Circular Train and share a wooden bench from downtown Yangon to residential areas unchanged by time.
