Belmond Governor’s Residence – Yangon

A romantic, colonial-style mansion dating back to the 1920s, the Governor’s Residence is redolent of the days when it was home to the ruler of Myanmar’s southern states. With its fan-cooled verandas and teak armchairs, this delightful home away from home is located in the elegant Embassy Quarter of Yangon within walking distance of the spectacular Shwedagon Pagoda. Dinner is served alfresco in the balmy evening air by the light of lanterns, as tropical fragrances scent the breeze. Guests can also enjoy delicious signature cocktails or fine wines, as well as high-quality teas and coffee in one of the hotel’s lounges or in the Kipling Bar.


The Governor’s Residence is a boutique hotel located within walking distance of the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon’s traditional Embassy Quarter.
