Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest hotel franchisor and leading provider of hotel management services, has introduced its most luxurious brand to Myanmar with the launch of a spectacular new Wyndham Grand hotel in downtown Yangon.
Wyndham Grand Yangon becomes Wyndham Hotels & Resorts’ second property in Myanmar, following TRYP by Wyndham Yangon, the urban boutique hotel brand that made its debut in 2017. Wyndham Grand is an ensemble of distinguished hotels that are approachable by design, representing one-of-a-kind experiences in key destinations with refined accommodation, attentive service and relaxed surroundings.
Rising from the shores of Kandawgyi Lake, Wyndham Grand Yangon, a new landmark in the heart of Myanmar’s commercial capital, offers breathtaking views of the lake and the golden Shwedagon Pagoda, plus an exquisite blend of grand facilities and authentic local touches that allow guests to enjoy life’s little luxuries.
The striking 20-storey, 291-room luxury hotel forms part of the Kantharyar Centre, a new mixed-use project comprising office spaces, serviced apartments and retail outlets. It has been developed by Asia Myanmar Shining Star Investment Co., Ltd. (AMSS) and will operate under a franchise agreement with Wyndham Hotels & Resorts.
“The Wyndham Grand brand is renowned for its little luxuries – from premium amenities, sophisticated designs to attentive staff across more than 40 hotels and resorts in some of the world’s most beautiful destinations,” said Mr Joon Aun Ooi, President and Managing Director of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, Southeast Asia and Pacific Rim. “Wyndham Grand Yangon is no exception. The hotel has been built with today’s modern traveller in mind, offering a luxurious hotel concept, an exceptional location and a wide array of dining options and amenities. We are confident that the new Wyndham Grand Yangon will elevate the stay experience for both business and leisure travellers and become a leading hotel in the city.”
Discover little luxuries inspired by local culture
Wyndham Grand Yangon is designed by HASSELL, the renowned architecture and interior design house, as an urban oasis that immerses guests in Yangon’s history and culture. The lobby exudes a resort-style ambience, with paintings of Myanmar’s mountainous silhouette and pagodas serving as the backdrop. Elsewhere, lake views, sheltered walkways and pockets of greenery add to the sense of natural discovery. Throughout the hotel, guests can discover intricate touches that connect them to Burmese tradition, like authentic artefacts, lacquered lamps that take the shape of traditional vessels, and brick red colours – a characteristic of the city.
Stylish stays in modern Yangon
The 291 rooms and suites blend contemporary elegance with a modern touch. Guests can enjoy stunning city and lake views through floor-to-ceiling windows, while wooden floors, state-of-the-art technology, and spacious bathrooms with separate bathtubs and rain showers add to the sense of style.
Guests staying on the Executive Club Floors will enjoy exclusive access to the Executive Lounge, which offers bespoke services, daily buffet breakfast and evening cocktails, plus free use of a meeting room for two hours.
Elevated on the top (20th) floor, the 320 square metre Presidential Suite is a sanctuary of luxury, with a separate meeting area, dining room and private bar, plus a sauna and an indulgent eight-person Jacuzzi. This one-bedroom suite can also be connected with twin or king rooms to sleep additional guests.
Fresh flavours and immersive experiences
Wyndham Grand Yangon features a collection of first-class facilities, including two restaurants and two bars. The Spoon is an all-day dining destination that offers international cuisine, traditional Burmese dishes and a wide range of beverages, including craft beers. The sumptuous daily breakfast combines world favourites with local flavours, including mohinga (Burmese noodle soup). The hotel also features a speciality restaurant serving fine-Thai cuisine, and two bars in the lobby and by the poolside will offer light bites and beverages.
Leisure facilities include a fitness centre and an outdoor pool which offers views of the Kandawgyi Lake. Guests can also pamper themselves with a host of sublime treatments at The Spa including traditional therapies like the spa’s signature four-hand massage. Meanwhile, direct access to a shopping mall makes it easy to indulge in retail therapy.
For corporate guests and event planners, the hotel provides extensive conference and banqueting space, including a 500-delegate Grand Ballroom with a huge LED screen, five meeting rooms with a large pre-function space for cocktail receptions as well as an outdoor garden for alfresco events and weddings.
Perfectly positioned next to Kandawgyi Lake, Kandawgyi Park and Yangon Zoological Gardens, and with views of the shimmering Shwedagon Pagoda, Wyndham Grand Yangon puts the city’s main attractions within easy reach. Guests who want to discover Yangon’s other downtown landmarks, such as Sule Pagoda and Bogyoke Market, can utilise the hotel’s daily shuttle service.
Room rates start from USD112 per night in a Superior Room inclusive of breakfast. Guests can make a reservation via firstname.lastname@example.org or +95 1 937 7188 or book direct at www.wyndhamhotels.com.
