About Hotel Red Canal

An oasis by the landmark Red Canal in local folklore just minutes from the famed Mandalay Palace and other attractions, The Hotel by the Red Canal is a convenient sanctuary, with its lush tropical greenery and calming water features, amidst the hustle and bustle of Myanmar's cultural city. 25 custom-sized Rooms into 4 categories uniquely named after and decked in the fineries and cultural adornments of the 4 major ethnic groups in Myanmar: Chin, Kachin, Rakhine and Shan.


This was our fourth stay at Red Canal in almost as many years and it continues to exceed expectations.

Here’s a few reasons (in no particular order) as to why we’ll definitely be coming back again for a fourth time:

  • It’s Mandalay’s only luxury boutique hotel
  • The maintenance of the property is exceptional (most Myanmar properties of this age would be covered in mould by now)
  • You’re only a short walk, or car journey away, from most of Mandalay city’s highlights
  • There’s a swimming pool and gym
  • The service is efficient, attentive and from the heart
  • The Indian cuisine served at Spice Garden restaurant is to die for! If avocado’s in season, be sure to check out the chicken and avocado salad (a great lunch option).
  • Stepping inside the spa is like discovering a hidden underground Bagan temple (you’ll see what I mean when you go there!)
  • It feels more like a home than it does a hotel
  • They have herb infused refillable water stations, which is great for people like myself who want to cut out single-use plastic
  • They’ve recently upgraded the bed linen – it’s like sleeping on a cloud!
  • The showers have excellent water pressure (this is a rarity in Myanmar)
  • They serve complimentary snacks from 2-5pm
  • Complimentary cocktails are served from 6-7pm, whilst a traditional Myanmar harp is plucked in the background (heavenly!)
  • It’s all about the small details – on arrival, the staff greeted us not just with a welcome but a welcome back
  • As a city, Mandalay can sometime feel a bit full on. Coming back here at the end of the day never fails to give you that feeling of, ‘Ah, we’re back!!’


During a stay at your hotel from March 30 to April 02 .

We forgot sunglasses in our room. With your professionalism, I was able to get my glasses.

I sincerely wanted to thank you and your team for this gesture and for our stay enjoyable.

Greetings from Belgium.
