This hotel surpassed expectations and was our favourite during our holiday to Myanmar. A real oasis in the hustle and bustle of a busy city. It’s a beautiful place and very relaxing. The food was excellent and staff very friendly. We didn’t want to leave! Good location too as you can walk into town.

This hotel does not miss a beat! The grounds are gorgeous, the rooms meet your every need and the food is outstanding. It is an oasis in a bustling city. The service is also impeccable, making the whole experience just perfect. We arrived late and were greeted with cold towels and a cold fresh drink. Everything in the room smelled great, even the tissues! After a long day of sight seeing my husband and son enjoyed the beautiful pool. When it began to rain someone magically appeared with an umbrella to walk me to the main house for drinks and dinner. I highly recommend this boutique hotel, it is charming and feels like you are in Myanmar.

Stayed with a girl friend for 4 nights. Couldn't have been happier with choice of accommodation. Like an Oasis in the bustling city of Rangoon. Close to Pagoda and only 10 mins from City centre (traffic dependant). Comfortable, spacious rooms, lovely pool and super stylish, old Colonial feel (think high ceilings, fans). Staff went over and above to make the stay special from the General Manger, the fabulous Executive Chef to the desk staff and waiters. This really is a 5 star choice.
