The Strand looks back on a glorious past of over a hundred years.
A classic in Asia's hotel industry! The Strand looks back on a glorious past of over a hundred years. The list of guests who have stayed here since 1901 includes personalities from the nobility, politics, literature, art, and show business. With only 32 suites, The Strand is one of the smallest hotels - small but great is also the philosophy of this historic house.
Hotel facilities include 2 restaurants, bar, lobby, and boutique. The Strand Cafe, with its magnificent teak-framed windows, overlooks Strand Road. Beautiful chandeliers, teak inlaid floors, and rattan chairs add a timeless charm to this beautiful space with its homey alcoves. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served here with delicious Burmese specialties and international cuisine. Daily afternoon tea is also served here. The Strand Grill is probably Yangon's most elegant restaurant, adorned with magnificent prints of Bagan pagodas, vaulted ceilings, and chandeliers. It is the right setting for festive dinners accompanied by classical guitar music. At the Strand Bar, enjoy a wide selection of refreshing drinks, accompanied on Fridays by a jazz duo. The Lobby Lounge, with its colonial-era furnishings and marble floors, is the center of all social life at The Strand Hotel. The lounge is a popular meeting place for a drink and stimulating conversation. Local musicians play the Burmese harp and xylophone daily. The hotel is also well suited for special events and celebrations. Banquets can be catered for 500 people and receptions for 1,000.
