Savoy Hotel, Yangon

The Savoy, Yangon

Traditional Hotel – typically up to £400 per room per night


Short description

Enjoy a leafy quiet next to a city centre icon


Recommended for:
City | History & culture


Yangon in all its faded colonial glory is host to bustling handicraft markets, leafy waterside parks and a vast array of glittering pagodas. Prime among them is Shwedagon, which the hotel overlooks. Something of a Burmese icon, its 100m-high golden spire all but dominates the city’s skyline. While any trip to Myanmar’s capital will certainly revolve around this centrepeice, make a small effort to read between the city’s grid system lines and you’ll find Buddhist temples and gold-leafed stupas at every turn. Don’t miss out on a walk around Inya Lake whose calm waters are the perfect foil to the city’s energy.


This boutique gem is something of a quiet oasis in the city centre, overshadowed by tall, old growth trees and surrounded by exotic verdure. Inside, all 30 Deluxe Rooms fuse historic colonialism, in whitewashed walls and teak furnishings, with traditional Burmese accents, including antiques and local artwork. A fruit basket, vase of fresh flowers and welcome drink, all presented on arrival, are a welcome touch – as is the unpacking service. In terms of mod-cons, there’s complimentary WiFi, satellite TV and in-house movies while an upgrade to an Executive Suite provides extra space to relax in.


Despite its intimate size, the Savoy offers a number of dining options. Choose to dine in the signature Kipling’s Restaurant or on its terrace as you enjoy pan-Asian fusion food along with Western favourites and a view out across the pool to Shwedagon Pagoda. The prawns are particularly good. There’s also an excellent bistro where local ingredients are prepared using classical European techniques. Served by the pool, it’s the perfect opportunity to put the hotel’s extensive wine menu through its paces.


Arranged around an inviting pool, the Savoy is designed to be a relaxing retreat away from Yangon’s bustle. For best results, spend some time on the sundeck, in the lounge or in the compact spa, where you can enjoy a range of massage and beauty treatments. The Captain’s Bar is also something of a relaxed meeting point for the city’s well heeled, known for its weekly live music and sports screenings. There are also, on occasion, exhibits of work by young Burmese artists and photographers.
