Wyndham Signs Hotel in Yangon, Myanmar

Wyndham Hotel Group has expanded its portfolio of offerings in Southeast Asia to Myanmar for the first time, with the signing of a franchise agreement for a 260-room Wyndham Grand hotel in Yangon.

Owned by Asia Myanmar Shining Star Company, the five-star Wyndham Grand Yangon Royal Lake will be part of the mixed-use Kantharyar Centre Project at the southern fringe of Yangons popular Kandawgyi Lake.

The US$157 million complex will include a residential building, serviced apartments, an office tower and a retail center.

With more than three million visitors in 2014, Myanmar is growing in popularity among business and leisure travelers, and we continue to be at the forefront of emerging markets, said Barry Robinson, Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia and Pacific Rims president and managing director. The countrys rich culture, political stability and recent tourism efforts, including the expansion of its e-Visa program and the construction of a new international airport, will continue to help draw more visitors, creating greater demand for high-quality, internationally recognized hotel brands like Wyndham.

Wyndham Grand Yangon Royal Lake will offer a banquet hall, two multi-purpose conference rooms, a meeting room, swimming pool, gym, spa and restaurants.

Kyaw Khaing, a spokesperson of Asia Myanmar Shining Star Company, said, We are proud to partner with Wyndham Hotel Group on this landmark project and bring the prestigious Wyndham Grand brand to Myanmar. We will invest around US$70 million in the hotel. The ground work for Phase 1 of the development is complete and we anticipate the whole project will be finalized by 2017.
