Sedona Hotel Mandalay
Nestled on four acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, Sedona Hotel Mandalay is strategically located in the heart of the city and faces the majestic Royal Palace and Mandalay Hill – sights that are a pleasure to behold. After reaching the beautiful Mandalay via SilkAir, we are transported to Sedona Hotel Mandalay and this was our nest for the next four days.
We had our morning breakfast at Cafe Mandalay Restaurant which serves popular Asian cuisine such as Tandoori Chicken and Spring Beef Noodles amidst rustic settings. In addition, we also tried UNO as they serve us a range of new dishes which will be available from October to March.
Its oxtail soup, brown and steaming, light with ginger and celery, pungent with all other spices. It is a deeply warming soup filled with oxtail and root vegetables such as carrots, and potatoes.
My favourite is the Hot & Soup Chilli Crab and Prawns. Using the fresh prawns and crabs, chef stir fry it with pineapple, capsicum, egg, plant, onion, lemon grass, lime leaves to give it the tangy and mild spicy kick.
Zuppa soup is an inviting combination of creamy mushroom champignon, smoked chicken and chicken breast fillet covered with puff pastry. Simple garden herbs like bay leaves and thyme add flavor.
If you prefer something more mediterranean, go for the BBQ Mixed Grill – a hearty platter with lamb chop, beef loin and chicken breast, drizzled with basil pesto sauce. I am not a fan of lamb but UNO’s version is pretty good. The lamb slid off the bones easily and it brings a mild smokey flavour which is a perfect marriage with pesto sauce.
The Executive Club Lounge comes equipped with a dedicated concierge; and is ideal for small meetings, reading or simply relaxing with a selection of food and beverages offerings.
Situated at the junction of 26th & 66th Street, Sedona Hotel Mandalay is just 3 minutes from the city centre and about 12 minutes drive from Mandalay Airport. Opportunities for sightseeing and shopping abound as guests can take in some of the city’s famous attractions such as Mandalay palace and Mandalay Hill (which I will share in my next post), or bring home local handicrafts available at handicrafts centers and the Zegyo Market.
