Best 5 star hotel in Yangon – Why Sedona?

As I was researching which 5 star hotel to stay in Yangon, I came across Sedona Hotel, which intrigued me with its name. Sedona, the beautiful city in Arizona? Later I found out that the name Sedona is derived from pure white Dendrobium Sedona orchid, which exemplifies warmth, graciousness and personable hospitality. That is the exact feeling you are going to get when you visit Sedona hotel.

There are so many good reviews about the hotel on booking.com and Trip Advisor. When I looked closely, the hotel just opened a brand new building – Inya Wing in May 2016. “How perfect to stay in a brand new 5 star hotel”, I thought to myself.

  • I have heard that Myanmar is becoming more popular with tourists and have been anxious about visiting the country before it gets too crowded. But I didn’t expect there to be such a luxurious hotel. I don’t know why. It has all the amenities of a five star but is so cheap!

    • It’s just really awesome to indulge in luxury once in a while. And Sedona has it all!

  • This hotel look excellent so warm, welcoming and luxurious. The gym and pool are facilities that one would expect at a 5 star hotel. The food looked nutritious but defiantly yummy.

  • Aimee Horgan

    Wow, this hotel looks so beautiful and luxurious. Its so nice to treat yourself sometimes.

  • Vyjay Rao

    Myanmar is definitely a pristine destination. The fact that it has maintained a low profile compared to the other countries of SE Asia adds to its charm. This is a country we would love to head to. The Sedona hotel looks like the ultimate in luxury. I love its subdued and elegant decor which reflects good taste. Luxury at less then $150 is indeed great value for money.

    • I totally agree too. No where else can you find such a luxury at this amazing price!

  • megan_claire

    It really does seem like Myanmar is the last hidden gem in SE Asia that remains untouched. I’m really hoping to get there before mass tourism appears, I would love an authentic experience. Amazing that you can get star accommodation for as little as $150 a night – that’s incredible value for money! Sedona sounds like an incredible base, not just for the service but also location. Love the décor inside; I totally didn’t picture Myanmar as having these type of amenities. Thanks for the review!

    • Glad you find it helpful Megan. Myanmar is really a beautiful country waiting to be explored!
