Rosewood Signs Hotel in Yangon, Myanmar

Rosewood has signed a deal with Prime Residence to expand the luxurious hotel brand to Yangon.

The Rosewood Yangon will open in Q4 2018 as the first Rosewood hotel in Myanmar and sixth in Asia.

Located on The Strand amidst classic colonial landmarks in the cultural heart and central business district of the city, the hotel is within walking distance to many of the city’s most notable attractions. Guests can easily take in the bustling city life at the Bogyoke Aung San Market (formerly known as Scott’s Market), enjoy a cruise down the winding Yangon river, or immerse themselves in local culture at the iconic Shwedagon Pagoda.

Housed in a stunning heritage building that was originally constructed in 1927 as the New Law Courts by architect Thomas Oliphant and Doorman Long UK, the engineers behind the iconic Sydney Harbor Bridge, the Rosewood Yangon has been meticulously restored to incorporate every contemporary amenity and comfort while simultaneously preserving the essence and splendor of the building’s storied past.

 The property has received approval from Yangon Heritage Trust, founded in 2012 by Dr. Thant Myint-U, the renowned Burmese writer and historian, for a Conservation Management Plan that permitted this carefully executed restoration of a historic structure. As one of the most significant historic restoration projects in Yangon to date, great care has been taken to restore both the exterior and interior to its former glory. Of particular note is the spectacular Heritage Room on the hotel’s fourth floor, which for many years had laid hidden beneath modern interventions but will now once again showcase its original beauty after a thoughtful and thorough restoration.

Rosewood Yangon will feature 209 spacious guestrooms, suites, one and two-bedroom apartment units. Boasting high ceilings and abundant natural light, most guestrooms also feature patios and balconies where guests can take in views of the majestic Yangon River or the beautifully landscaped internal courtyards.

The hotel will also offer five distinct dining venues featuring local, Asian, and internationally-influenced cuisine, including a residential-style tea lounge and patisserie, a modern Cantonese restaurant, a convivial brasserie, an intimate bar and cigar lounge, and a panoramic rooftop bar boasting sweeping views of the city and the Yangon River.

Additional amenities will include several event venues and extensive leisure facilities over three floors with Sense, A Rosewood Spa, in addition to a state-of-the-art gym, yoga / Pilates studio, and a rooftop pool.

The hotel will also offer Yangon’s well-groomed and well-dressed residents a stylish getaway with a classic men’s grooming salon, a beauty bar and an artisanal leather workshop.

“With its stunning vistas, awe-inspiring architecture, rich history and culture, Myanmar and Yangon are perfect examples of a Rosewood destination, and we look forward to introducing our affluent explorers to this destination,” said Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “Already an emerging regional business center, Yangon is a wonderfully dynamic city with deep cultural traditions and is a perfect gateway for our discerning guests to discover the wonderful landscapes and culture of Myanmar.”

Rosewood Yangon will join Rosewood’s distinctive Asian properties including Rosewood Beijing, Rosewood Phuket, and Rosewood Sanya. The upcoming opening of Rosewood Yangon also caps a year of dynamic growth for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts which also saw the opening of Rosewood Luang Prabang, Rosewood Phnom Penh and Rosewood Baha Mar in the Bahamas. Additional properties set to open this Winter include Rosewood Miramar Beach in Montecito, Rosewood Bangkok, Rosewood Guangzhou and Rosewood Hong Kong
