Kempinski Hotels is pleased to announce the upcoming opening of its first property in Myanmar – Kempinski Hotel Nay Pyi Taw. The hotel will begin to welcome guests on 1st November 2014, just in time for the first ASEAN Summit in Myanmar.
The newly built property is located near the Myanmar International Convention Center (MICC) and only a 30-minute drive from the capital’s international airport. Spread over four villas, Kempinski Hotel Nay Pyi Taw offers 141 rooms and suites, including the largest one in the country – the Grand Royal Suite at over 1,000 square meters.
The hotel design was conceived with the elements of Burmese heritage and an emphasis on local arts, crafts and furnishings featuring high ceilings and broad windows overlooking the extensive gardens. In keeping with local tradition, Kempinski Hotel Nay Pyi Taw features a spectacular teakwood Royal Pavilion inspired by the architecture of the 18th Century Kone Baung dynasty.
The hotel’s five restaurants and bars will offer guests a dining experience of local ingredients and flavours complemented by European culinary tradition. Six meeting rooms including the Kispanadi Ballroom can accommodate up to 400 guests for private and business events. Guests can also enjoy themselves with the many leisure facilities offered, such as the 2/3 outdoor swimming pool, tennis court, fitness centre and a luxury spa to be opened in 2015.
“Our mission 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.”
Kempinski Hotel Nay Pyi Taw offers visitors a tranquil base camp from which to explore the beauty of Myanmar. The hotel’s fleet of BMW automobiles makes exploring surrounding sites such as the Bagan temple complex, Inle Lake, Mount Popa, the Poe Kyar elephant camp and other cultural heritage sites convenient.
Nay Pyi Taw is an administrative centre for businesses applying for permits to operate in Myanmar. The city also regularly hosts government delegates and organisations, such as the upcoming ASEAN Summit, which will take place in November.
To celebrate the opening, the hotel is offering an introductory rate from US$180 for a Premier Suite until 31st December 2014, subject to availability and advance booking.
