Hotel Description

There’s nowhere else you’d imagine finding a hotel quite like the Governor’s Residence — while the current proprietors, the Belmond group, claim credit for the hotel’s time-machine atmosphere, in truth it’s the erstwhile capital city of Rangoon that’s responsible for the throwback colonial ambience. For while its neighbors have spent the last few decades modernizing, Burma has kept itself shut away from the modern world, in the process leaving relics like this old British governor’s residence more or less untouched.

Untouched, that is, until the 1990s, when it was rescued from a state of decay by a very thorough preservation job. And while the intervening years have seen some functional updates, in its aesthetic dimensions the Governor’s Residence remains more or less just as it was, meticulously preserved against the passage of time. The rooms and suites are luxurious in a low-tech way, all teakwood furniture, hardwood floors and classic colonial style.

What might be most surprising of all is the quiet. This isn’t the capital anymore, and the Belmond Governor’s Residence, surrounded by gardens, is no longer at the heart of the city — nighttime sounds tend to the pastoral rather than the urban. Say what you will about how exactly it got that way; there’s no denying that Burma is unique among destinations.

How to get there:

The Belmond Governor's Residence (set within the elegant Yangon Embassy Quarter) is 30 minutes (20 km) from Yangon International Airport (RGN) and only 10 minutes from the city center. Please contact CustomerService@TabletHotels.com for additional information and/or assistance with airport transfers.
