A romantic, colonial-style mansion dating from the 1920s, Belmond Governor's Residence is redolent of the days when it was home to the ruler of Myanmar's southern states.


Belmond Governor's Residence is situated in Yangon, a vibrant city in the cultural heart of Myanmar. Located within the elegant Yangon Embassy Quarter and close to the spectacular Shwedagon Pagoda, it is just ten minutes from the city centre and 30 minutes from Yangon airport. The hotel is perfectly placed for enjoying Yangon's great cultural attractions. The golden pagodas, fascinating National Museum and lively Bogyoke Market, piled high with local handicrafts, gems and antiques, are just minutes away.


Carved teak and sumptuous silks combine to make our spacious rooms both fresh and timeless. The exceptionally spacious rooms are a haven of tranquillity in the heart of Yangon’s Embassy Quarter. They offer double or twin beds, comfortably accommodating two people with an extra bed available for a third. All Deluxe Rooms offer beautiful views of the Residence’s outer courtyard whilst the Deluxe Garden Rooms have stunning views of our private lotus garden, towering trees and free-form pond. The Governor’s Rooms reflect a bygone era. Hardwood floors, intricate woodcarvings and delicate silks are perfectly complemented by modern luxuries. Local patterns worked into fresh designs decorate the space, while a hand-carved bed canopy stands as the focal point in each room. Overlooking the private lotus garden, Junior Suites and the Two-Bedroom Junior Suite offer a blissful retreat after a day sightseeing in Yangon.
