A nice welcome after touring Myanmar. The GM handled our guide's attitude quickly while offering welcome along with his staff. I can't recall the name of the gentleman at the front desk,
but he was excellent. As well as everyone encountered. The poor young lady who has to work the roasting gift shop even had a smile.
A lovely colonial mansion in Yangon surrounded by Ambassador's residences,is wonderful to experience and enjoy. The spirit of the hotel is of relaxation and service in a luxe environment with teak and history. Myanmar has it's hitches and restrictions so while anywhere else it may be ok to complain about slow wifi, but not much to complain about in the lovely setting. Yes, prices are a bit high for wine, but how can you sit in a lovely garden of Yangon having a delicious meal excellent service, and complain? The pool is nice in it's setting. The pool attendant could have been more present, especially after sporadic rain.
The room was nice with enough space and a large bath. It was quiet as well. I had requested a larger room but I think when I return I'll stick to the same room.
Interesting & lovely flora, wonderful food and staff in a exotic Mansion!
