Shangri-La International Hotel Management will open its second hotel in Yangon, Myanmar in 2017 and with a prime location on the banks of Kandawgyi Lake, the 350-room Lakeside Shangri-La, Yangon will command magnificent views of the glittering Shwedagon Pagoda and unparalleled vistas over the lake.

The official groundbreaking ceremony for Lakeside Shangri-La, Yangon took place on 8 December.  The hotel site is near the new Shangri-La Residences, Yangon, which are also managed by Shangri-La. 

The Hong Kong-based hotel group has been operating in Myanmar since 1996 when it opened the 334-room Traders Hotel, Yangon. 

"The steady increase of domestic and foreign investment in Myanmar's economic capital makes Yangon an important commercial centre," said Shangri-La President and Chief Executive Officer Greg Dogan. 

"Along with the city's period buildings, traditional architecture and historic charms, it's easy to see the multi-faceted attractions of Yangon.  We look forward to further contributing to the city's tourism and welcoming visitors with Shangri-La's hospitality from the heart."

In addition to 350 well-appointed guestrooms and suites, the Lakeside Shangri-La, Yangon will have three restaurants, two bars, generous meeting and convention space, a health club, and an outdoor swimming pool.  Guests will also have access to the 44.5-hectare Kandawgyi Nature Park and the Yangon Zoological Gardens surrounding the lake.
