Hilton to debut in Myanmar
Published: 08/03/2013 - Filed under: News »
Hilton Worldwide is to open it first property in Myanmar (also known as Burma) in 2014.
The 21-storey Hilton Yangon will be located within a mixed use development opposite the city’s High Court and Monument Park, and will be the first internationally branded hotel in Yangon.
The 300-room property will feature an executive floor, business centre, fitness centre and pool, all-day dining restaurant, two speciality restaurants, a sky bar and lobby lounge, and 1,400 sqm of meeting space including an 850 sqm ballroom.
Yangon is the country’s largest city, and was officially Myanmar’s capital until 2006, when this was moved 200 miles north to the city of Nay Pyi Taw by the military government.
Recent social and economic reform has seen visitor numbers rise steeply, and Nay Pyi Taw will host the World Economic Forum on East Asia in June this year.
