What We Love

  • The urban sanctuary atmosphere
  • Going for a dip in the fan-shaped pool after a sweltering day of sightseeing
  • Spacious, tastefully decorated rooms
  • Fresh ginger tea and mohinga (rice noodles with fish soup) served at breakfast

What To Know

  • It’s a 10-minute taxi ride to downtown — taxis in Yangon are ancient, so functioning windows, let alone air conditioning, are rare
  • The pool gets deep quickly, so keep an eye on kids
  • Rainy season runs from May to October, and downpours are often torrential
  • WiFi is free but slow
