In Yangon our two recommendations to stay include:
The Strand Hotel: The Strand Hotel was built in 1901 and is the beautiful old colonial hotel downtown. It is also perfect for a meal, tea or a drink. You feel like you are living in a different age.
Belmond Governor’s Residence Hotel: This hotel is located in a colonial style mansion from the 1920’s. It is a wonderful spot with gardens and lotus pools.
In Bagan we recommend the Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary Resort, which is a very nice property/spa located long the river.
At Inle Lake we recommend the lovely Inle Princess Hotel right on the lake.
In addition to our recommendations above, recent articles have also suggested the Bagan Lodge and Hotel @ Tharabar Gate in Bagan.
