Pan Pacific opens first international hotel in Myanmar's capital, second in the country.

Strategically located close to the Myanmar International Convention Centre, PARKROYAL Nay Pyi Taw anticipates being the accommodation of choice for visiting dignitaries and high-profile guests.

The launch also makes PARKROYAL the first international hotel brand in Myanmar to enjoy a presence in two major cities – the commercial centre, Yangon and the administrative seat of the government, Nay Pyi Taw.

Set within spacious beautifully landscaped gardens, the 180-room PARKROYAL Nay Pyi Taw opens with 90 rooms, with the remainder expected to be fully operational by the end of the year. The hotel offers an all-day dining restaurant, spa, gym, swimming pool and a range of meeting facilities.

Nay Pyi Taw is the third largest city in Myanmar and has been listed by CNN as one of the world’s fastest-growing cities. As the capital, Nay Pyi Taw is expected to host a prestigious line-up of international events, starting with the ASEAN Leadership Forum in May.

Strategically located within the vicinity of the Myanmar International Convention Centre, the official venue of government functions, PARKROYAL Nay Pyi Taw anticipates being the accommodation of choice for many foreign and local dignitaries.

As the second PARKROYAL hotel in Myanmar, PARKROYAL Nay Pyi Taw builds upon the success of PARKROYAL Yangon which has established itself over the past 12 years as one of the top international hotels in the country. To retain its premier position in Myanmar’s increasingly competitive hotel industry, PARKROYAL Yangon is undergoing a series of renovations this year to refresh its lobby, dining spaces as well as meeting and entertainment facilities.

The opening of PARKROYAL Nay Pyi Taw under a management contract, and the refurbishment of PARKROYAL Yangon come on the heels of another recent development of the Group in Myanmar.

Last November, Pan Pacific Hotels Group announced a conditional joint venture with Shwe Taung Group to develop the first “Pan Pacific” hotel in Myanmar. Scheduled to open in 2017, the 348-room Pan Pacific Yangon will be located in the heart of Yangon city centre, opposite the popular Bogyoke Aung San (Scott) Market.

“As an early and successful player in Myanmar’s hotel industry, Pan Pacific Hotels Group is keen to capitalise on business opportunities within the flourishing tourism sector to solidify our position as one of the leading international hotel operators in the country,” says Bernold O. Schroeder, Chief Executive Officer, Pan Pacific Hotels Group.  

“The opening of PARKROYAL Nay Pyi Taw in such a prominent location in the capital will give the brand greater visibility and boost the Group’s Myanmar portfolio. We look forward to harnessing our in-depth market knowledge and strong reputation to win over more travellers with the quality accommodation and personalised service that we have become trusted to provide.”

In Myanmar, Pan Pacific Hotels Group continues to seek expansion opportunities in key destinations for both city and resort hotels.

Elsewhere in Asia Pacific, the Group is on track to open its fifth property in China – Pan Pacific Hotel and Serviced Suites Tianjin – later this year. By 2017, it is also scheduled to launch five more “Pan Pacific” and PARKROYAL hotels in Australia, China and Indonesia.
