The Strand Yangon, Myanmar

Located on the banks of the Yangon River, The Strand is housed in a restored Victorian mansion that exudes history. It was built in 1901 by the ambitious Sarkies Brothers at a time when the country was ruled by the British. The Strand quickly became one of the Asia’s most prestigious hotels, hosting such guests as Prince Edward, George Orwell and Noël Coward. Almost a century later, legendary hotelier Adrian Zecha cast his gaze on the historic property, which had fallen into disrepair, and set out to restore its legacy. Today the white-washed façade, teak-framed windows and elegant interiors are newly splendid. The lobby, with its cane furniture, soaring ceilings and jasmineperfumed air, transports guests to the bygone era when Rudyard Kipling and Somerset Maugham were in residence.
