Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 1 March 2013

GHM has confirmed that its management contract for The Strand in Yangon, Myanmar, has been terminated.

Strand Hotel International (SHI), owners of the 112-year-old property, has decided to take on management of the hotel locally.

GHM has managed The Strand since September of 1999.

Opened in 1901 by the renowned Sarkies Brothers, The Strand was a cornerstone of British society in Myanmar during the colonial era, hosting the likes of Rudyard Kipling, Somerset Maugham and Lord Mountbatten.

Following a sensitive renovation of its interiors in the early 1990s, the hotel re-opened its doors in 1993. GHM co-founder Adrian Zecha was instrumental in launching the renaissance of the 30-room property.

Under GHMs management, The Strand reclaimed its earlier renown as the preferred address for well-heeled travellers to Yangon, and one of the citys most iconic landmarks.

It is with deep regret that we close the book on GHMs long relationship with The Strand, said GHM President Hans R. Jenni. We have enjoyed many years of collaboration with the owners of this extraordinary hotel.
