The Overview

Updated on September 1, 2014

Originally built in 1901, The Strand Hotel stands for all that were wondrous and opulent in a bygone era. Restored to its former glory, the Victorian-styled Strand combines the charms of the 1920s and 1930s with modern-day amenities.

Set among fading pastel-colored 19th-century buildings and a stone's throw from the Irrawaddy River, the three-story Strand, with its grand red-carpeted staircase and 32 suites, is more like an elegant mansion than a hotel. Arriving guests are welcomed in the lobby lounge - with its upholstered cane furniture, marble floors inlaid with teak, potted palms and black lacquered fans twirling from the high ceiling - feel like they have been invited to friend's home rather than checking in to a hotel. This feeling is reinforced with personal butlers for each room, at the ready to cater for every whim

The suites boast high ceilings, teakwood floors, spacious bedrooms and luxurious bathrooms. A private collection of local art pieces and antiques evokes a sense of nostalgia.
