The Belmond Governor's Residence is a Victorian-style hotel located in Dagon Township, Yangon, Myanmar (Burma), located in a teak mansion from the 1920s. It is located in the Embassy Quarter near the Shwedagon Pagoda, the National Museum, the former Foreign Ministry office compound and India House - now the official residence of the ambassador of India.
The elegant teak mansion was built in 1920. The two-story mansion, as its official name denotes, served as the official home of the governors of the British Crown Colony of Burma, such as Sir Reginald Dorman-Smith and Hubert Rance. In 2006 the hotel became part of Orient-Express Hotels Ltd. which in 2014 changed its name to Belmond Ltd. At this point the hotel changed its name to Belmond Governor's Residence.
