If only all hotels were like The Stand!

Leaving the busy streets of Yangon behind as you walk into the colonial tranquility of The Strand, doormen on hand and to be met by the ever efficient Operations Manager, Mark, who immediately makes sure everything runs like clockwork.

You are treated like long lost friends/VIP's, whilst your butler prepares your room and you sip on a refreshing juice to cool down from the heat and dust of the streets. This is not an advertorial, it actually happens everyday at The Strand.

The staff are just fantastic, anything you need will be sorted, allowing for a little misinterpretation! The Cafe prepares the best breakfast and evening meals, which also includes local delicacies - not to be missed and a bar that just has to be experienced.

We stayed twice at The Strand during our stay in Myanmar and when we returned, the staff immediately recognised this and welcomed us like family.

The rooms are exceptionally appointed, with everything you would expect.

We dined in the restaurant, this was a real experience and actually forgot we were sat in a hotel in Myanmar. Service, wine and food were sensational.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The front suites will experience some street noise, however its a great reminder where you are!

I was really impressed with the hotel. the room was large (very nicely renovated), the food was delicious, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was easy to get taxis to sites and shopping (very inexpensive).
Overall, a great experience. Also, I had the opportunity to stay at another five star property in Yangoon and I preferred the Strand.

"The suite was marvelous! It has a teak wood flooring, high ceiling with floor to ceiling curtains and windows, something you would expect from a colonial style property. Modern touches are everywhere but did not surpass the glorious and possessed luxurious feel. The bathroom was covered in classic white tiles, spacious and clean with separate tub and showers. Toiletries were placed in ceramics with a small piece of Thanaka branch used traditionally in Myanmar as a cosmetic paste for sun rays protection. The staff are wearing their traditional Longyi uniforms and very accommodating. The warm welcome and intuitive service of the hotel’s team is at the heart of every Strand Hotel experience and is considered its greatest asset.
It was a short but memorable stay. "

What a fantastic way to end our Far East experience at the The Strand. Right from the moment you arrive via the sumptuous splendour created in the hotel lobby through to the luxury of your room, the attention to detail just at check-in lets you know that you are in for a memorable experience. As for the staff - The charisma, charm and warmth of this hotel starts right at the top with Mark the Operation Manager through to your butler and the rest of the team - every person makes you feel their total goal is to ensure you have the most perfect of stays. With great food (restaurant/room service) as an added bonus, you have trouble leaving the hotel to explore the remainder of the city.

Room Tip: Amazingly no noise from any other room due to a good old solid structure that has been undisturbed i...
