Myanmar—Europe’s oldest luxury hotel group, Kempinski Hotels, recently announced the opening of its first property in Myanmar (Burma). The newly built 141-room and suite hotel will open November 1st in Myanmar’s capital of Nay Pyi Taw, one of the world’s fastest-growing cities.

Located in the heart of the city, close to the Myanmar International Convention Center (MICC), the Nay Pyi Taw international airport, the Gem Museum and the 325-feet-high Uppatasanti Pagoda, Kempinski Hotel Nay Pyi Taw will open just in time for the Ninth East Asia Summit (EAS). In order to celebrate the hotel’s opening, an introductory rate of $180 for a Premier Suite will be available until 31 December, subject to advance booking.

The luxurious hotel is spread across four villas and features 141 Deluxe Rooms, Premier, Executive and Governor Suites, and two Palace Suites. The 1,000-square-meter Grand Royal Suite is the largest one in the country. The opulent design draws its inspiration from Burma’s expansive heritage, most evidently displayed in the hotel’s Royal Pavilion, influenced by the architecture of the early Kone Baung dynasty of the 18th century.

Room amenities include high ceilings, broad windows, complimentary wireless internet access, concierge service, limousine transfer and high-tech flat-screen TVs. Guests will also have access to the hotel’s fleet of BMW automobiles, for sightseeing and guided tours around the city.

Kempinski Hotel Nay Pyi Taw will provide its guests a variety of dining, leisure and business facilities. The hotel will feature five restaurants and bars, six meeting rooms to accommodate up to 400 guests, a full-service business center, fitness center, outdoor pool and a tennis court. Additionally, the Kempinski Spa is set to open in 2015.

“Our mission and our promise is to make the property the most luxurious hotel in Myanmar,” says 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 travelers seeking a relaxing alternative to Yangon.”

Founded in 1897 in Berlin, Germany and headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, Kempinski Hotels currently operates 73 five-star hotels worldwide, and is a founding member of the Global Hotel Alliance (GHA), the world’s largest alliance of independent hotels
