About Thahara: Who We Are and What We Stand For

About Us


Thahara offers travellers a special way to experience Myanmar.  We are an online booking platform for both highly curated experiences and stylish boutique hotels in Myanmar. Browse our collections, step off the tourist trail, and book your perfect holiday in Myanmar with Thahara.


Thahara was created with help from Genevieve, Josephine and Peter from Anthem Asia, an investment group that has been building sustainable businesses in Myanmar.  Thahara is part of the Anthem Asia group. 

Our vision encompasses more than delivering wonderful memories for our visitors.  We also want our chosen local hoteliers to build flourishing small businesses offering good jobs in line with the country's drive to create a sustainable tourism sector. 

Today, we continue to market our network of unique, locally-owned hotels.  We add new locations as we come across passionate hosts who share our approach and continue to add itineraries that allow our guests to explore, to see, to experience life and wonders in Myanmar that others may miss out on. 

"Thahara" means friendship in Pali, one of Myanmar's ancient languages.  Our slogan is "share our world".  We believe friends help each other by sharing, no matter where in the world they come from.

General Manager

Hi everyone, my name's Tom and I'm from England.  I moved to Myanmar around 3 years ago and have since come to call this fascinating country home.  I've got family links across the world from Ghana to India and even Myanmar (or Burma when my grandparents lived here), so it was no surprise when I packed my bags and headed out to South East Asia.  Since living in Myanmar, I've travelled all over the country, from the Myeik Archipelago to the northern tip of Shan State, staying in every kind of accommodation you can imagine, and loving it!  Me and my team have got bundles of knowledge when it comes to visiting Myanmar, so get in contact and let us guide you around one of the world's last frontiers.

Hello! I’m Ye Kyaw Lin and I'm the Reservations and Operations Executive at Thahara. I've been working in tourism in Myanmar for 4 years now, and love sharing my country with new travellers. For me, the best bit about Myanmar is its culture. Did you know that the country is made up of 135 different ethnic groups? It's pretty incredible. From festivals to food, superstitions to religion, there's so much culture here that you can explore and learn about during your holiday. I've been lucky enough to travel all over the country, and now I hope I can share with you some of my best travel tips.
