Tucked away in the leafy diplomatic enclave, the Governor’s Residence isn’t the only colonial-style hotel in Yangon, but it’s the one with the most panache and old-world charm. You enter via impeccably manicured lawns flanked by a pool and lotus pond. With its redtiled, white-fringed roofs, teak walls and deep verandas, the main building, which dates from the 1920s, is a picture of tropical refinement. The rooms, in low-rise blocks to the rear, have sleek hardwood floors and white walls; most open on to the garden.
