Best Western launches new hotel in Myanmar

16 Dec 2015 by Clement Huang

Best Western Hotels & Resorts has launched a new hotel in Mandalay, the second largest city in Myanmar.

The new hotel brings the total number of Best Western properties in the country to three, following the opening of two hotels in Yangon.

The new Best Western Plus Eastern Palace Hotel is located within the city centre – minutes from Mandalay’s main business district.

With 114 guestrooms and suites, the midscale property offers an attractive range of in-room amenities, including flat-screen TV, USB ports and complimentary wifi.

Guests will be able to sample local and international cuisine at the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant, enjoy drinks at the lobby lounge, or cool off in the shaded outdoor swimming pool, which also features a pool-side bar. Other recreational facilities include a spa, fitness centre, steam room and sauna.

Best Western Plus Eastern Palace Hotel is also home to a fully equipped business centre and a flexible meeting space that can cater for both small and large events.

“Best Western was one of the first international hotel groups to enter Myanmar following its re-emergence on the international stage, and I am delighted to be able to leverage our first-mover advantage with yet another superb hotel in the country,” commented Olivier Berrivin, Best Western Hotels & Resorts’ managing director of international operations - Asia.

“Following our two properties in Yangon, Best Western Plus Eastern Palace Hotel will be another excellent addition to our nationwide portfolio. With Myanmar’s recent elections having passed off peacefully and successfully, this charming and alluring country is set for another prolonged period of prosperity.”
