Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Built in 1901The Strand has featured as a landmark of this vibrant city for over a century, offering guests an oasis of calm, timeless elegance and understated luxury. The recent renovation project afforded a complete overhaul of its infrastructure, and restored The Strand to its former glory, featuring marble and teak wood flooring, ceiling fans, chandeliers and lacquer wood furniture, interspersed with Burmese antiques. Our 24-hour bespoke Butler service attends to the 32 suites, ensuring every whim is taken care of, and The Strand offers guests a welcome respite from the frenetic city, buoyed by the warmth and kindness of the Myanmar people, which remains the very essence of The Strand. Often regarded as the Grand Dame of Yangon, The Strand offers guests the opportunity to languor amidst a rich tapestry of past meets present, seamlessly blending architectural heritage with history, set against a backdrop of Colonial splendor.

This hotel is just perfect. We arrived on a crazy early flight and got to the hotel at about 4am, they made our check in super fast and gave us our room. The room was dreamy, big, tastefully decorated and with plenty of amazing details. The bathroom was huge, with a bathtub

I had stayed in this hotel in 1986 at which time it was the best, and probably the only hotel in Rangoon. It still is the best hotel in Rangoon, but it has undergone a massive 'quantum' transformation. It is certainly the most luxurious hotel we have ever stayed in. There are

We first went to the Belmond and were not happy with the accommodations so we moved to The Strand. The accommodations were much better. The rooms were very clean. The bathrooms were okay and in need of updating but that is expected for a hotel in Myanmar. The best part ever was

Dear Madam The Strand has featured as a Yangon landmark for over a century, and so too has the tradition of allowing smoking in Sarkies bar, a rare occurrence within any European or Western establishment. The Strand remains mindful of the issues surrounding passive smoking, and at no time are either our guests or staff subjected to intolerable levels that would directly affect their health, particularly within the confines of our designated smoking area, and we apologize if you experienced any discomfort as a result of our policy. Our staff and management would certainly intervene should the levels of smoke be regarded as either detrimental, or in the interest of public health, although we are fortunate to have not yet been required to address an issue of this nature to date. Kind regards.

in myanmar only visa is accepted. my american express was not available. my particular bank visa was not accepted in myanmar although my travel friend used her visa. so you need to check with your individual visa provider as myanmar can be "red flagged" by your bank was frustrating. we went through destination asia which was over the top excellent and they handled our tours payments made ahead of time
