Pan Pacific Hotels Group opens first international hotel in Myanmar’s capital

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 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.

“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.
