The Strand Yangon has announced that it will be finishing the final stage of its 18-month renovation this November. The luxury urban resort will soon unveil a new outdoor swimming pool, dining terrace, therapy rooms, gym, and private garden.
To celebrate the new facilities, the hotel is offering the Swimming Pool Indulgence package. Guests who book a Superior, Deluxe or Executive suite for stays between December 1, 2017 and February, 28 2018 will receive a $50 credit per day for use within the hotel’s food and beverage outlets, one complimentary massage per person during their stay, and two cocktails daily by the pool.
When renovations are complete, guests will be able to relax in the new 18-by-8-meter infinity edge swimming pool that has a teak wood terrace. Surrounding the pool will be 35 loungers and four private cabanas and tables for al fresco all-day dining for up to 48 guests.
Nearby will be the new gym and wellness area with two large therapy rooms designed for both single and couples spa treatments.
The hotel provides an urban oasis with its private garden: the 800-square-meter space offers seating areas surrounded by native plants.
The hotel also houses The Strand Café, serving breakfast, high tea, and light meals with Myanmar and international menus available. For dinner, guests can head to The Stand Restaurant overseen by chef Christian Martena who worked at Opus Wine Bar and Restaurant in Bangkok where he often hosted the Thai royal family.
All rooms come with 24-hour personalized butler service, fruit basket, television, full breakfast, Wi-Fi, and tea and coffee served any time.
The 31-room hotel was originally built in 1901 and was one of the first luxury colonial outposts in Southeast Asia.
