Kempinski will open its first hotel in Myanmar on 1 November 2014, just in time for the first ASEAN Summit to be held in the country.

The Kempinski Hotel Nay Pyi Taw is located near the Myanmar International Convention Center (MICC), just a short drive from the capitals international airport.

Spread over four villas, the hotel features 141 rooms and suites, including the Grand Royal Suite, which, at 1,000 square meters, is one of the largest in the country.

The hotel design was conceived with the heritage of Burma in mind and an emphasis on local arts, crafts and furnishings. High ceilings and broad windows overlook the extensive gardens, creating a soothing environment in which to relax.

The internal room features are controlled by individual iPads, and the hotel will offer all guests complimentary wireless internet access.

A total of five restaurants and bars will feature local ingredients and flavours complemented by European culinary tradition, while six meeting rooms, including the Kispanadi Ballroom, can accommodate up to 400 guests for a variety of private and business-related functions.

Leisure facilities include an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court and fitness centre. Kempinski The Spa will be added in 2015.

Our mission and our promise is to make the property the most luxurious hotel in Myanmar, said Mr. Franck Droin, general manager of Kempinski Hotel Nay Pyi Taw. We are confident that Nay Pyi Taw will soon be a popular destination with international leisure and business travellers seeking a relaxing alternative to Yangon.

To celebrate its opening, the hotel is offering an introductory rate from US$180 for a Premier suite until 31 December 2014, subject to availability and advance booking. Terms and conditions apply.
