The Rosewood Yangon is a new addition to the luxury scene in Myanmar. Formerly the New Law Courts, the building was constructed between 1927 and 1931 from plans drawn up by Scottish architect Thomas Oliphant Foster, and is one of Asia’s first multi-storied, steel-framed structures. Situated at the junction of the city’s famous Strand and Sule Pagoda Roads, the hotel offers 205 rooms & suites as well as one & two-bedroom residences. All of the spacious rooms come with the high ceilings associated with colonial buildings and a host of features such as a 49” LCD TV, complimentary WiFi and a private bathroom with amenities by Lorenzo Villoresi. The Rosewood’s dramatic interior has retained, amongst other things, the building’s original bronze doors, original teak handrails, and a row of Ionic columns which give its lobby, and central area, a real sense of grandeur. Guests can dine at the European & Burmese brasserie ‘Nova’, a Chinese Restaurant (opening early 2020) or the ‘Courtroom’. Traditional tea is served in the 'Living Room' and cocktails taken at ‘Y’ Bar. A fully equipped spa and fitness centre offer guests a chance to unwind, and in the coming months there will also be an infinity swimming pool located at rooftop level which will offer unique views over the Yangon River.
