The Savoy Hotel of Yangon is a glimpse into the glamor of days gone by. Adjacent to the iconic Shwedagon Pagoda, this intimate colonial boutique hotel is a complete departure from the big, glossy hotels downtown, promoting peacefulness in the heart of the city through its quiet corridors, discreet service, and Old World charm.
The Savoy Hotel is one of those authentic and intimate properties where charm oozes around every corner. Swirling overhead fans, polished teakwood floors, traditional Myanmar antiques and sculptures, and black and white photographs decorate the hallways, bedrooms, and spaces alongside lush greenery and fragrant roses. Colonial in style, The Savoy Hotel is an invitation for guests to revel in the allures of the olden days, when welcome drinks, fruit baskets, and fresh flowers were included upon every arrival. All of The Savoy Hotel’s 24 rooms are comfortable and generously air conditioned, fitted with polished wood flooring, palatial en-suite bathrooms, colonial-style furniture, and floor-to-ceiling windows. For a truly indulgent stay, opt for one of the hotel’s six Executive Suites, which feature their own kitchenettes, Juliet balconies, and claw foot bathtubs.
The heart of The Savoy Hotel is undoubtedly its marble swimming pool, which is shaded by leafy trees and pink and orange parasols to create a silent oasis in the middle of the bustling city. Indeed, the entire experience the Savoy is framed by quietude: breakfast is taken on the terrace amid the bougainvillea and poolside waters, Asian and Western fare at The Kipling Restaurant come with sparkling views of the Shwedagon Pagoda, and a piano player croons in the Captain’s Bar as expats and young embassy staffers recline in wicker armchairs to socialize over gin and tonics. It’s the type of setting one would expect Rudyard Kipling to frequent, and it is only enhanced by the smiling staff who are always eager to please.
The Savoy Hotel is perfectly located in a picturesque area of Yangon overlooking the Shwedagon Pagoda, Myanmar’s “twinkling wonder” and the city’s most venerated landmark. Because of its unique location apart from city’s downtown hotels, The Savoy Hotel offers unique sightseeing and market shopping opportunities to its guests, bringing them that much closer to the melting pot of traditional and modern Burmese culture and the country’s effervescent people.Request Information
