It’s little wonder that this place is central to the social fabric of Yangon. Set in lush tropical gardens in the well-to-do diplomatic area, its buzzy yet relaxed, luxurious yet understated, open-terrace restaurant and bar are the very epitome of historical charm without the stuffiness. As such, they continue to draw influential locals and ex-pats alike (like Ernest Hemingway to a whisky bar). To stay at the Governor’s Residence is to experience the best in informal, non-evasive service which any regular visitor to a Belmond property would instantly recognise. Their philosophy of training their staff to the highest standards and then nurturing their careers means that a great many of them will work with the company for decades, creating a real sense of consistency throughout their 40+ offerings around the world.
