““I built Yandabo Home so that those seeking to immerse in remote rural Myanmar can come experience village life here in the Mandalay region, and learn about its rich customs and traditions.”
Welcome to Mandalay
Experience this once closed-off kingdom with Secret Retreats, in the best hotels in Mandalay, Myanmar. Often still referred to as Burma, the English name was officially changed to Myanmar in 1989 by the ruling military junta. Today, what was once a former royal capital is now a bustling Asian metropolis with buzzing markets, wandering tourists and an abundance of tea houses. Though the streets may be busy and teeming with life, there is, however, also no shortage of historical charm, quiet nooks and beautiful architecture to explore while enjoying beautiful and luxurious places to stay where a Mandalay boutique hotel or cruise offers the charm, luxury and slow life of yesteryear.
From palaces to pagodas, wooden bridges to stunning waterfalls, Mandalay is a must-see city while travelling through magical Myanmar, especially when experienced from the comfort of a unique boutique or surprisingly luxurious hotel or from the from the balcony of your boat cabin as you take a luxury Mandalay river cruise.
“Yandabo Home is a small and discreet 12-room hotel located in the charming village of Yandabo, along the Irrawaddy River, between Mandalay and Bagan.”
Kim, the discoverer.
