Yangon (Rangoon) | Superior
Well located in the lower town area of Myanmar’s eclectic former capital, just moments from the riverbank, the Yangon Excelsior is a sharp-dressed addition to the city’s hotel résumé. The Excelsior is within convenient walking distance of several major sights, including the gleaming Sule Pagoda, Maha Bandula Garden’s landscaped elegance, and the imposing edifice of Yangon City Hall.
The interiors have been stylishly designed with a retro-colonial, softly masculine décor. Echoes of 1940s globetrotting glamour blend with contemporary geometric lines and hints of teal, cream, tweed, brushed leather and burnished brass creating an ambiance of cool, manicured chic. High ceilings and parquet flooring bring a sense of quality to the generously-sized guestrooms, all of which are spacious enough for cosy seating areas and desk space to accompany the king-size convertible beds without feeling crowded. Good sized en-suites with freestanding baths continue the classic look, while well thought-out touches like vintage telephones and typewriters mingle with small markers of modern luxury, such as high end espresso machines.
Bare brickwork and riveted girders in the café and restaurant are visual reminders of the hotel’s history as a hub of industrial trade. Find a cosy spot to enjoy breakfast or a light bite in the deli café, and settle down for more formal dining in the restaurant which specialises in sustainable seafood, meat and locally sourced produce. Explore the capital’s vibrant culture by day, take a trip to the spa for a post-sightseeing pamper, and settle back in the bar for a nightcap surrounded by design nods to past literary giants who have found inspiration among Yangon’s evocative streets.
We SaySophisticated, on-trend and in touch with plastic-free sustainability initiatives, this hotel is a great example of how to revitalise Yangon’s diverse heritage.
