The Strand Yangon is moving into the final stage of an 18-month revamp, which will see the 31-key icon get new facilities and repositioned as Myanmar’s first luxury urban resort.
Following the complete renovation and upgrade of the hotel’s original 1901 building in 2016, the final phase will see the addition of a new 18x8m infinity-edge swimming pool. As well, a new poolside terrace will offer space for 35 loungers, as well as four private pool cabanas and tables for al fresco all-day dining for up to 48 guests.
The iconic hotel’s branding will be revamped as well
Completing the urban oasis positioning, the hotel will also get a new gym, a wellness area with two 25m2 therapy rooms and 800m2 private garden.
The enhancements are scheduled to be officially unveiled in November.
