Formerly the headquarters of major British exporter The Steel Brothers, one of the most impressive buildings from Yangon's colonial era is experiencing a new lease on life as Yangon Excelsior. Dating back to the 1870s, this iconic piece of architecture has been painstakingly refurbished to its original splendour, evoking a nostalgic tone as it draws on the British epoch.
The central location between the Sule Pagoda and Strand Road makes it the perfect choice for leisure travellers wanting to explore this fascinating city.
Set to open in July 2018, the luxury hotel will be home to 74 rooms and suites, boasting 5 meter high ceilings, elegant design and modern amenities.
Inspired by the newsrooms from the heyday of journalism, the graceful all-day dining café deli "The Newsroom" serves freshly baked breads, sandwiches, salads, pastas, homemade pastries and the quintessentially British pastime afternoon tea.
Stylish and contemporary, The Steel Brothers Wine & Grill offers a vast selection of premium wines and a delectable menu based on farm fresh vegetables, prime meat cuts and sustainable fish and seafood - all served by an attentive and courteous team.
After exploring the temples and the streets of the old Yangon, guests can unwind and indulge at Excelsior Spa. The three treatment rooms offer a range of therapeutic massages and fitness facilities. Traditionally trained massage therapists revive and revitalise amid the air-conditioned treatment rooms. Away from the hustle and bustle of Yangon, Excelsior Spa prides itself on offering a timeless and relaxing experience in the heart of the city.
