City Highlights

Welcome to a city of giant pagodas gleaming with gold, peppering the skyline for miles around. A place full of history and hope, following years of military rule. Choose from two complimentary bicycle tours, fastidiously routed to avoid crowds and encounter unique sights. As popular as the pagodas, Yangon's markets are a wonderful place to potter and browse handmade keepsakes, stunning fabrics, all manner of food and scenes of local life. In total contrast, the lustrous greens of Gary Player's Pun Hlaing Golf Club are under an hour away - the hotel will gladly arrange transport and tee-off times.

Culture & History

The hotel's position in the leafy Embassy Quarter places guests a stone's throw from Yangon's top cultural and historical attractions. The glorious Shwedagon Pagoda, for instance, gilded with over 8,000 solid gold slabs, the thought-provoking National Museum, glittering Myanmar Gems Museum and bustling Bogyoke Market, laden with trinkets, gemstones and beautiful handicrafts. Even the hotel is a historical treasure, taking guests back in time with its colonial architecture and intriguing past.

Spa & Wellness

Step inside The Governor's Oasis, a sublime spa hidden in this legendary Yangon hotel. Choose from a menu of top-to-toe treatments and exclusive spa packages, using organic ingredients and modern techniques. A unique spa experience that promises to dissolve tension or pain and revitalise body and soul, so you'll leave with a complete sense of harmony. Will it be a body wrap, manicure, massage or reflexology? Whatever you choose, it will be pure bliss!

Hotel Experiences

Excursions with a private car and Guide can be arranged to places of interest nearby, including Bago, Burma's ancient capital. We recommend you take an escorted trip by classic 1940s bus to the local food markets, then return to the hotel for a cooking lesson, followed by a lunch comprising the dishes you have helped to make.
