Pan Pacific Hotels Group has announced the opening of ParkRoyal Nay Pyi Taw, the first international hotel in the capital of Myanmar, Nay Pyi Taw.
The launch also makes ParkRoyal the first international hotel brand in Myanmar to have presence in two major cities – the commercial centre, Yangon and the administrative seat of the government, Nay Pyi Taw. Set within spacious amazingly landscaped gardens, the ParkRoyal Nay Pyi Taw opens with 90 rooms, with the remainder expected to be fully operational by the end of 2014. As the capital, Nay Pyi Taw is expected to host a prestigious line-up of international events, starting with the ASEAN Leadership Forum soon 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 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,” said Bernold Schroeder, chief executive, Pan Pacific Hotels Group.
To retain its premier position in Myanmar’s increasingly competitive hotel industry, ParkRoyal Yangon is undergoing a series of renovations and refurbishment this year to redesign its lobby, dining spaces as well as meeting and entertainment facilities.
