Brightly lit with warm lanterns and nestled on grounds dotted with lotus gardens and tropical plants, Belmond Governor’s Mansion is a romantic oasis of history come to life. The hotel, which is housed in the original 1920s colonial style mansion that was once home to the ruler of Myanmar’s southern states, welcomes visitors with the old world charm so familiar in Myanmar and the modern grace of Yangon luxury hotels.
Each of the 47 rooms at the Belmond Governor’s Residence in Yangon feels just like part of the home, with views overlooking the gardens or shimmering turquoise pool, and decorated with traditional dark wood furniture and crisp white linens. Touches of silk and pattern remind visitors of an era gone by, while updates, such as lounge areas and spacious bathrooms with terrazzo tubs, allow them the pleasures of the modern day. Belmond Governor’s Mansion, chock full of hidden treasure and Burmese, also makes sure that guests find relaxing joy in the smallest of details, from the bathrobe and slippers tucked in the bathroom, to the welcome fruit basket awaiting their arrival.
Downstairs, the Burmese Curry Table offers guests a taste of Burmese cuisine, with local curries and vegetables and rice over traditional charcoal burners. Take in the ponds and fragrant gardens over a pot of green tea and a spicy salad. After dinner, the Mindon Lounge is the perfect place to sip on a cool cocktail or take it with you to the sun-filtered garden seating area, to taste and see the exotic culture of Myanmar. The hotel also boasts an extensive collection of fine wines, teas, and coffees at the Kipling Bar, a nod to the beloved Indian poet and author Rudyard Kipling. Be sure to take dinner alfresco by lantern light for an extra special experience.
The hotel grounds are a peaceful escape and feature multiple soothing activities such as morning yoga, complimentary bicycle rentals, sunbeds, and the Governor’s Oasis spa treatments featuring products from ILA. Spend the day visiting the onsite boutique of hand-crafted art and local fashions or enjoy Yangon’s essential landmarks nearby such as the majestic Shwedagon Pagoda, National Museum, and the lively Bogyoke Market.
