Aureum Resort at Governor's House
Why we like it
- A stately Governor's House at the world-famous hill station of central Myanmar
- Colonial style accommodation with all the modern conveniences
- Elegant service in this luxury mansion
- A choice of accommodations from deluxe rooms to the Governors Suite all well-appointed and classically designed with bespoke furniture
- An indulgent resort for the modern traveller
The ultimate indulgence is the Presidential Suite complete with a grand lounge and dining room, all the space of having your own house with a private outdoor swimming pool.
Our A&K representative Victoria Smith (Vicky) was excellent from start to finish
The house is a two storey late Victorian colonial mansion reminiscent of the 1920s -1930s. There is a 35 room complex perched on the side of the hill which incorporate 34 deluxe rooms in bungalows and this is where the Presidential suite can be found.
Best time to be thereMyanmar (Burma) has three clear seasons: from March to May are the very hot summer months, the wet and humid monsoon runs from May to October and the cold dry winter lasts from November to February. The best time of year to visit is late November early December when the rains have gone, the landscape is lush and green and the skies are crystal clear. However any time from late November to March is a good time to travel.
