If you are thinking about making your Myanmar luxury travel, accommodation may be one of your most important concerns as it contributes a lot to the whole quality of the trip. For your perfect Myanmar luxury travel, we recommend the list of best top-end hotels in 4 main tourist highlights of Myanmar, consisting of Yangon, Bagan, Inle Lake and Mandalay. The list has chosen by the experts of the Daily Telegraph, a prestigious newspaper in the UK.

1. Belmond Governor’s Residence (Yangon)

This has been the best place to stay in Yangon up to now for your Myanmar travel, where a provincial Burmese governor lived dating back to the 1920s. The silent whirring fans, wide teak verandahs, and open first-floor sitting room create a peaceful heaven in the heart of busy Yangon. At night, the hotel is lit by bamboo torches and candles. 49 bedrooms are top-notch, located in newer, two-storey buildings in a beautiful garden: spacious bathrooms, softly-polished teak floors, and crisp white linen. Breakfast is like a cuisine exhibition, offering various choices of dishes from around the world. If you want to try a sophisticated version of mohinga, the traditional Burmese breakfast of fish noodle soup, the hotel is a great hotel to do that. Another interesting thing is a working ATM in reception, which facilitates your money withdraw and payment.

It’s the most luxurious choice for your Myanmar luxury travel to Inle Lake. The hotel comprises 46 very spacious wooden chalets on stilts made by skillful local craftsmen, lined with sheets of woven bamboo and decorated with traditional Burmese textiles. Lake Front View chalets cost more than the others. Food and services are all excellent. Particularly, the spa with three large treatment rooms offers countries views and provides perfect treatments which rejuvenate both your body and soul.

3. Mandalay Hill Resort (Mandalay)

In the cosmopolitan city of Mandalay, there is no better choice than Mandalay Hill Resort for your Myanmar luxury travel. The hotel is situated in wonderful landscaped gardens at the foot of Mandalay Hill. The rooms are furnished in international style with very comfortable bed. You should ask a room in the sixth floor to have best views over the Royal Palace and its impressive moat. From the hotel, it’s very convenient to climb through the pagodas on Mandalay Hill and contemplate sunset over the city. Food is amazingly good, particularly the barbecue dinners. However, the lifts are too small, compared to a large number of people using them.

4. Aureum Palace (Bagan)

There is no doubt that the hotel is currently the best of the luxury ones in Bagan for your Burma tours. It is located by a lake within the Bagan Archaeological Preservation Zone. A majority of its 87 villas and the infinity pool offer views of the magnificent pagoda. You should choose a Jasmine Villa with a private lake view if you can, and avoid the small, dark Deluxe rooms at the back of the hotel. Although the staff here is very helpful, their English capacity is not really good. In the lobby is a useful ATM.

Important note
The best time to travel in Myanmar is between November and February (of the following year) when the weather is very nice, and it attracts the largest number of tourists. If you travel Myanmar in this period, you should book these hotels at least a month in advance, especially to hotels in Yangon and Mandalay to have good choices with reasonable rates.
Only if you have chosen really good accommodation is your Myanmar luxury travel happy and perfect. We expect that you will have the best experiences in the hotels.
