Savoy: The Colonial Boutique Hotel in Yangon

Bustling and busy streets. The shining golden beauty of a 2.500 years old pagoda. Somehwere in between the doctor’s house. Now home to one of the most luxurious hotels in Yangon – Savoy.

I can feel the old colonial charm as I walk slowly through the corridors and explore the spaces. Burmese teak furniture, traditional antiques and gently twirling fans are my companions.

I can’t wait to see the poolside and enjoy a fresh drink under the friendly shadow of Pathein’s traditional umbrellas. As I sip my watermelon juice a light, warm wind plays with the tall old trees above me. I surrender to the calmness of the place and  almost forget that I am right in the heart of the buzzing and clamorous Yangon. A dream.


  • This is beautiful! Amazing! Wonderful!
    You should have posted this earlier 😉 Now i am spending my next holiday in two weeks in north east Thailand. But i will keep this hotel in mind for my next trip to Asia.
    Like always, thanks a lot for sharing!
