Description of Kandawgyi Palace Hotel
The 208 room Kandawgyi Palace Hotel is situated on the Royal Lake in the center of Yangon. The hotel is next to the Kandawgyi Park, and it is within 2 minutes reach of the world famous Shwedagon Pagoda, 5 minutes to the center of Yangon and in close vicinity of major shopping & sightseeing spots.
KANDAWGYI PALACE HOTEL
The hotel was constructed with Golden Teak Wood, and is surrounded by a beautiful natural “Rain Forrest” with trees that are over a hundred years old. If you want to relax in Yangon, in a boutique hotel, then come and visit us at Kandawgyi Palace Hotel Yangon Myanmar.
The views from our Superior rooms are not as nice as the other room categories. These 32 sq m rooms come with a standard ward robe, satellite TV and IDD telephones. These rooms do not have electronic safes in the rooms. For those of you that are on a tighter budget, and do not mind looking at the road or roof top from your room, these rooms will be fine just to sleep in.
Deluxe rooms are all situated in the A-wing of the hotel. Each of the rooms come with a view of the famous Shwedagon Pagoda or the Royal Lake and are attached with bath and shower; however the rooms on the 4th and 5th floors come with a separate shower cubicle apart from the bath. All rooms are 32 sq m in size, and the rooms on the higher floors have some of the nicest views in Yangon.
Front Lake Deluxe
All the hotels in Yangon (Rangoon), we are the only hotel with rooms that are directly adjacent to the Royal Lake. From your bed room, the doors open up onto a private terrace directly overlooking the Royal Lake. A fantastic place to just relax and have a drink. All our Lake Front Deluxe rooms are on the ground floor, and there are only 18 of these rooms.

55 square meter Diplomat Suites all come with views of the fragrant garden and rain forest. Each room comes with individually designed and hand-crafted King size beds, private dressing room and a large private bath and shower. Some of these rooms connect to Deluxe Rooms, and is ideal for families traveling with children. There are only four Diplomat Suites in Yangon (Rangoon), and they are all at the Kandawgyi Palace Hotel.
Corporate Suites are all located on the 5th floor (No Smoking Floor). Since our lifts only go up to the 4th floor, guests need to walk up one more floor to get to these suites. These rooms are not suitable for those that are not willing to walk up one floor, but all our guest have told us that the small walk up is all worth it. Not only are these rooms one of the most beautiful rooms of any hotels in Yangon (Rangoon), but the view from these rooms are also fantastic. Each room is different and each room has a character of itâ€™s own. These 55 square meter rooms comes with either a view of the Shwedagon Pagoda or Panoramic Royal Lake, a separate sitting area, King Size beds, walk in closet, large bath and shower cubicle.
Sleeping in these rooms will make you feel like you are a Governor in Yangon (Rangoon). These suites are located next to the corner rooms of the hotel. These beautiful 65 square meter suites all have a great view of the Shwedagon Pagoda. Hotels will always be hotels, but sleeping in these suites donâ€™t feel like you are in a hotel. The rooms are designed to give a very homely feeling, especially the one on the ground floor. This room has a private terrace with enough room for twenty people, adjacent to the Royal Lake, and a private lawn and garden.
There are only two Presidential Suites in the whole hotel. Hotels in Yangon (Rangoon) normally cannot boast of an almost 360 degree view from their room, but in the Presidential Suites, both the Shwedagon Pagoda and the Royal Lake is clearly visible. These 70 square meter rooms have balconies on both sides of the room.
SPA KANDAWGYI PALACE HOTEL
The two Imperial Suites in our hotel are similar in a way but are also very different in character. The one on the 3rd floor comes with a balcony facing the Royal Lake and a pavilion where you can have breakfast or dinner with a view of both the Royal Lake and Shwedagon Pagoda.
The other Imperial Suite on the ground floor has a private balcony and garden with enough room for a small party of up to 100 people (we could also arrange a romantic dinner for just two people). There is no better place in Yangon (Rangoon) where you can have dinner with a view of the Shwedagon Pagoda while sitting next to the Royal Lake.
There are many nice hotels in Yangon (Rangoon) but our Royal Bungalow is 120 square meters of pure paradise. With an indoor and outdoor shower, a huge love seat big enough to sleep on, Jacuzzi next to the bed, private swimming pool next to the Jacuzzi (and directly adjacent to the Royal Lake), you would not think that you were in a hotel in Yangon (Rangoon).
Restaurants & Bars
Thiri Cafe & Terrace
This is our 24 hour restaurant for Asian Dishes and Light food, and where we normally serve our breakfast buffet. But with so many trees in our hotel and wonderful weather in Yangon, why not spend your time outdoors. Just beware of the crows, these birds just like taking your food away the minute you leave the table.
Rain Forest, Lobby Lounge & Bar
This is probably the best spot in the hotel to have a cold beer in the afternoon. Where else in Yangon can you drink your beer with a view of the garden and a dinosaur?
Nut’s Health & Fusion Reataurant
Nut’s is a health and fusion restaurant. It is located on the mezzanine floor of the hotel. Here, we serve specials such as “Herbal Chicken Soup”, “Fresh Lobsters” and “Pennyworth Health Drink”. Nut’s is one of the few health food restaurants in Yangon. There are also six private rooms that can be used for more private dinners or meetings. Three of the rooms connect to form a large room with a capacity of fifty people. Perfect for small parties, meetings or seminars.
Swimming pool IN KANDAWGYI PALACE HOTEL
Being next to the pool on one side and the Kandawgyi Lake on the other side, this is a great place to relax. Exercise in the morning, take a swim in the afternoon or have a bottle of wine in the evening. No other hotel in Yagnon has facilities to actually drink, eat or relax “on the lake”.
Lake View Restaurant
This restaurant offers only light foods or snacks that go well with your beer. It’s one of two open air restaurants in the hotel. With live music in the evening, this place livens up like a pub at night. Therefore, if you feel bored while in Yangon, come and have an ice cold beer with a stunning view of the Kandawgyi Lake.
The Members Club
Located in the basement of the hotel, this place used to be a disco, but has now been transformed into more of a social and karaoke club. Great for business meetings or to entertain guests while in Yangon. There are seven private karaoke rooms with English, Chinese, Myanmar, Japanese, Thai and Korean songs, that are all computer controlled.
Myanmar Culture Show
The Mingalar Hall used to be a very popular place for weekend weddings in Yangon. Located in the almost 100 year old “old” wing of the hotel, this hall with very high ceiling and old fashion ceiling fans reminds us of the olden days. There is a spectacular view of the Kandawgyi Lake and both day and night time. The Myanmar Cultural show is on every evening and is the dancers are the best you can find in Yangon.
