Governor’s Residence Yangon

Price from: $550

35 Taw Win Road, Dagon Township, Yangon


The Governor's Residence is a luxury, colonial-styled mansion and hotel dating back in the 1920s and redolent of the days when the ruler of Burma's southern states  chose as his home. With its fan-cooled verandas and teak armchairs, this sparkling Orient-Express hotel in the elegant Embassy Quarter of Yangon (formerly Rangoon), conjures up a bygone era while abundantly providing every modern pleasure. When you walk through the main gates, you seem to be carried be back in time, thanks to fine English lawns and the placid pool which lies below the carved Colonial wooden terrace.

Once inside, you’ll be courteously cared and escorted, through the ‘jumble’ of original buildings, to the guestrooms. All of these are exquisitely decorated with luxurious, lavish and tasteful furnishings and antiquities, showing off the building's best original features and characteristics. The general standard of amenities is exceptionally high, from underfloor heating in the marble bathrooms to fast free WIFI to the welcome fruit basket, which comes as standard.

Nestled in a verdant garden with lotus-dotted pools, the Governor's Residence hotel is truly magical at the end of a day spent visiting the majestic Shwedagon Pagoda. Dinner is served alfresco in the balmy evening air by lantern-light, candles, as tropical fragrances scent the breeze.


  • A luxurious, colonial-styled mansion dating back in the 1920s.
  • Colonial-era stlyed architecture.
  • Having dinner by candle and lantern light on the pristine lawns in summer is a magical experience.
  • No swimming pool available, but you will surely enjoy or stay once you choose this place to stay.
