Yangon’s famous Strand Hotel was founded by the same hoteliers as Singapore’s Raffles, the legendary Armenian Sarkies Brothers who established Asia’s first chain of luxury hotels. The Strand was built in 1901 and has long been recognized as a national landmark. Completely renovated, the three-storey Victorian hotel maintains a strong sense of charm and history. The marble flooring inlaid with teak wood, the rattan furniture and potted palms, the chandeliers and black-lacquered ceiling fans - all of it imbues The Strand with a personality as welcome as it is inimitable.
The Strand is located on Strand Road, close to the Yangon River in the main commercial and diplomatic district. It is a 30 – minute drive from Yangon International Airport and within easy reach of the city’s main attractions.
