Kandawgyi Palace Hotel

Southern Burma

Rating: Deluxe    

Kandawgyi Palace Hotel overview

This hotel has a superb location on the banks of Kandawgyi Lake and was built in 1934 as the headquarters of the esteemed Rangoon Rowing Club. Constructed in traditional Burmese style, the hotel is an impressive sight and is set in gorgeous gardens.
There are many styles of rooms ranging from superior rooms to presidential suites. All are spacious, have atmospheric interiors which make use of dark teak wood and feature modern amenities including air conditioning, flatscreen TV, IDD phone, minibar, safe and well equipped bathroom. Windows look out over the gardens or lake. Suites have sitting rooms and dressing rooms and some are interconnecting so make good family accommodation.
Hotel facilities include an outdoor swimming pool by the lake, spa, boutique and gift shop. The restaurant leads out to an attractive terrace where you can enjoy al fresco dining. Cuisines offered include French and Chinese plus a range of light meals and snacks at the cafe. There's a large lounge and indoor bar where you can sample a selection of drinks and snacks. 
The hotel gardens lead into Kandawgyi Park which includes areas of rainforest and the lake with the striking Karaweik Hall, built in the style of a heavily gilded royal barge, part of which is a restaurant. The hotel is about a 10-minute walk from Shwedagon Pagoda, with downtown Yangon just a short distance away.
