"The finest hostelry East of Suez" wrote British author John Murray in his 1911 Handbook for Travellers in India, Burma and Ceylon about The Strand, still Yangon's peerless luxury hotel more than one hundred years later. Built in 1901 and acquired soon after by the Sarkies Brothers, The Strand remains one of the Far East's most enduring and awe-inspiring colonial landmarks.
This November, The Strand emerges from a programme of thoughtful refreshments. The beloved chandeliers, charming ceiling fans and authentic period furnishings, which have long served as the backdrop to this singular meeting place of famous explorers and raconteurs remain. Past meets present among strategic upgrades including advanced air-conditioning and in-room technologies, as well as in the extensive staff training to ensure flawless personalised service which lives up to this grand and glamorous setting.
