Arrival at The Strand in 1923


Together with Raffles in Singapore and the E&O in Penang, The Strand has always been considered one of the most British ‘colonial’ hotels of South-East Asia. But in fact it was conceived, built and run by an Armenian family firm: the Sarkies.


‘After an afternoon of sight-seeing, we return to The Strand’s lobby, sipping Myanmar high tea (truly fashionable: the famous Strand bakery supplies basket with pastries, accompanied by
gooseberry jam, banana muffins, jam tarts and honeycomb ice-cream for
the kids) to the soothing sounds of the harp and xylophone.
The kitchen has earned fame, a head butler is in charge of the comfort of all in-house guests. It is an oasis in this demanding world.’

Andreas Augustin
