Mandalay, Burma
The Hotel by the Red Canal
  • Located by the famous Red Canal

  • Close to the main sites including Mandalay Palace

  • Wonderful furnishings made from local materials such as teak and mother-of-pearl

  • Delicious Indian food served in the restaurant - a real highlight

Established in 1996, the Hotel by the Red Canal is a small boutique hotel located near many of Mandalay's main attractions. The hotel is known for its wonderful teak furnishings and fixtures made from local materials such as rattan and mother of pearl and traditional Burmese fabrics. So you really are reminded that you are not in a standardised corporate hotel chain, you feel like you are getting a cultural experience at the hotel.

The hotel owner and general manager Mr Ashwin Kumar leads a marvellous team of staff who complement the hotel nicely and provide an attentive service to whoever walks through the doors. The staff's warm hospitality combined with the luxurious amenities makes for a memorable stay.

There are only 24 rooms and suites at the hotel and we recommend staying in one of the rooms at the front of the hotel as they have more natural light and have delightful views of a small stream winding its way around the hotel. The hotel boasts some well maintained gardens a small pool and deck and a gym.

The Hotel by the Red Canal is home to the reputable Spice Garden restaurant, renowned for having the best North Indian cuisine throughout Mandalay.
