From the same stable as Raffles in Singapore and with guests of the ilk of Rudyard Kipling, Somerset Maugham and Noel Coward, The Strand has a long and prestigious heritage. Following a refurbishment in 2016 the hotel has been transformed to its former glory. From the white washed exterior to the marble floored, high-ceilinged interiors, the vintage and class of the property is evident.    

There are 31 superb suites, all the epitome of period style, with black and white photographs reflecting the hotel's history, top quality furnishings, a spacious lounge and a butler on hand to pour out a cup of tea and generally attend to your every need. Suites benefit from modern touches, too, such as satellite TV, phone and free wifi.

The Stand Cafe is the venue for the famous Strand high tea, a traditional which is proudly continued into the 21st century, a tempting combination of sweet and savoury treats served each afternoon. It is open throughout the day for all other meals too, and is complimented on certain evenings by the Strand Restaurant. Sarkies Bar, named after the brothers who were the first owners of the hotel, remains a popular watering hole where you can savour signature cocktails such as the Strand Sling.   

The hotel is close to many historical monuments, museums and galleries, ideal for getting a feel for Yangon past and present. When you return to The Strand you can unwind with a swim in the pool or head to one of the therapy rooms for some expert pampering, sampling aromatherapy, body wrap or scrub or a traditional Myanmar massage.
