Yangon’s Best Gay-Friendly Hotels


9 Best Gay Hotels Yangon

Gay Hotels Yangon
Many of Yangon’s best hotels nod to the city’s colonial past, with grandiose decor and luxurious facilities. Recent re-invigorated interest in travel to Myanmar means that many hotels in town have been recently renovated, and many luxury and great value hotels are only now opening. Yangon is a fairly cheap city, so you can book a very luxe stay for an affordable price, or you could go for a more low-key boutique stay. We have mostly selected gay-friendly hotels by the river or near Yangon Central station, which are two of the most popular areas for tourists to stay in and near to Yangon’s handful of gay bars.

Why We Love It:
♥ A slice of Yangon colonial history
♥ Historic yet recently renovated
♥ Ultra-luxurious suites and service
♥ Exceptional facilities

The Strand has been one of Yangon’s finest hotels since 1911, a relic of colonial-era grandeur that has been gorgeously restored to a modern standard as recently as 2016. It offers a range of luxurious and spacious suites, each decorated with antique furnishings and original art. The service is truly exceptional: every stay comes with personalised 24-hour butler service, full breakfast, fruit basket, in-room bar, and complimentary coffee or tea served to your room at any time. The hotel bar, restaurant, and cafe are all equally high-end, with delicious food and drink. There’s a beautiful outdoor pool, a treatment room, and a state-of-the-art gym. The Strand remains Yangon’s most booked gay-friendly hotel.
