Positioned on the edge of Yangon’s Royal Lake, Kandawgyi Palace Hotel has a conveniently central location that will appeal to travellers seeking to make the most of their time in the city.

Traditionally styled, using teak wood and local materials, Kandawgyi Palace has large rooms and suites with Burmese antiques and regional artwork adorning the walls; for the best views, we recommend those rooms that overlook the lake. Although the decor references the historic roots of the city, the amenities are up to date, with flat-screen TVs and air-conditioning.

One of the best things about the Kandawgyi Palace is the selection of dining options: you can choose from a French or Indian breakfast, have a Western or Asian lunch in the 24-hour Thiri Cafe, and have dinner in the Taste Paradise Restaurant with its Chinese menu, or in the French restaurant, Agnes, the terrace of which enjoys views across to the golden Shwedagon Pagoda.

After exploring Yangon, the hotel’s spa and swimming pool provide good options for chilling out. There’s a poolside bar, too, so you can enjoy cold beer in the afternoon, while taking in the views of the Royal Lake. Athletic types can head out on the jogging trail that winds around the lake: a suitable replacement in the absence of an onsite gym.
