Indulge in dinner served alfresco beneath candle-light and savour the tropical fragrances that waft in the evening breeze. The colourful menu presents excellent dishes with local produce expertly fused into the Burmese classics and European choices. Alternatively, dine in the spacious lounge with lovely garden views, dotted with dancing butterflies. For authentic Burmese flavours, enjoy fresh, local curries served buffet-style over burning charcoal. The most outstanding feature is the hotel’s fan-shaped swimming pool, around which the slow pace of life seems to revolve. Enjoy refreshments from the in-house Kipling Bar as you happily reflect upon your wonderful Yangon experience.
