Hotels in Myanmar
As a country that has recently opened its borders to the world the amount of luxury hotels in Myanmar is sparse, however, this should never deter someone as the hotels on offer are charming, local and authentic in their nature which makes the whole experience feel more unique. The few luxury hotels in Yangon pride themselves on infusing a touch of colonial charm with a contemporary design.
For the hotels throughout the rest of Myanmar, they are pleasant and perfectly within keeping with the environment around them. There will be quirks along the way, but the staff are so proud of their resorts and lodges so as our experts would suggest enjoy the adventure. There are also cruises available for a few nights on the immense Irrawaddy River if you are keen to explore Myanmar from a different perspective and spend days taking in the vibrant life of those living on the rivers banks. If you are looking for a relaxing beach break at the end then our experts would recommend a couple of nights at Ngapali beach which has charming resort hotels on the beach.
