“Excellent boutique-hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2009

We have stayed in Yangon in two hotels GOVERNOR'S RESIDENCE and KANDAWGYI PALACE HOTEL. Both magnificent hotels. Everyone is in own way good. GOVERNOR’S RESIDENCE it is a small boutique-hotel. Very cosy and pleasant. Especially we liked hotel restaurant - excellent cuisine (see photos).

A wonderful property in Yangon, set a quiet part of the city. As you enter, the pool is as inviting as the beautifully appointed rooms.

Stayed only one night but what a joy. Beautiful bedroom but with a shower only - strange. Had dinner in the garden surrounded by illuminated hand painted umbrellas. Food is quite excellent. Stay here if you get the chance.

we thought this was just great - nice quiet location in the centre of Yangon but an easy taxi ride to Scots market or wherever we wanted to go. The restaurant was outstanding and we had little doubt but to have dinner at the hotel in a great setting. Go for one of the tables out by the pool - very romantic . The parasols lit at night look terriic. This hotel is an undiscovered gem.

At our arrival at the airport of Yangon unfortunately our baggage never came on the baggage claim, it stayed at the Airport in Bangkok. Not a good start for our trip to Myanmar but everything became alright as soon as we arrived at The Governor's Residence. The staff and even the General Manager, Mr. Bissig, took care of our lost baggage. The hotel provided us cloths to change ( from the hotel Boutique free of charge ) as well as laundry service (and good addresses for shopping in town). On the next morning our baggage was delivered to our room and our trip could continue as planed.
Now some words about the hotel - the best way to describe The Governor's Residence is: "luxurious Hideaway"
The hotel has great gardens and pool and is the best and most relaxing place to stay in Yangon. It is so relaxing to watch the fish when taking breakfast on the veranda, there is even a hidden turtle in one of the ponds.
My friend and I spent two nights at this hotel and honestly we wanted to stay even longer. The rooms are spacious and luxurious - nothing to complain.
Also remarkable is the service and staff - always smiling and ready to assist whatever you need. We want to thank once again the whole team and the Management especially for their help with our lost baggage ( a real nice touch ! )
If we return to Yangon, we will also return to The Governor's Residence

Wellcome to your home! That is the way the doorman, the smiling waitresses are wellcoming you. The sound of a gong and you are seated in a comfortable armchair sipping a cold juice, looking at the nice smimmingpool surrounded by a magnifiscent tropical garden. Even Nargis has not been able to destroy this unique atmosphere. The whole stay is more than agreable, with a nicely furnished room, an outstanding restaurant with the best of the asian cuisine. The early morning breakfast in the veranda is an unique experience. Most of all, Philip is there, always present and giving you the informations necessary to understand a quite complex country. Yin Yin also is doing her best with success to make your stay a wonderfull experience. As the poete wrote, a thing of beauty is a joy for ever.

Stayed November 2008, travelled on business
