Pan Pacific Hotels Group has entered Myanmar’s capital for the first time, with the launch of a new Parkroyal hotel in Naypyidaw.
Set among landscaped gardens, the Parkroyal Nay Pyi Taw opens with 90 rooms, with a further 90 expected to be operational by the end of the year. Hotel facilities include a restaurant, spa, gym, swimming pool and meeting space.
“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, CEO of Pan Pacific Hotels Group.
“The opening of Parkroyal Nay Pyi Taw in such a prominent location in the capital will give the brand greater visibility and boost the Group’s Myanmar portfolio. We look forward to harnessing our in-depth market knowledge and strong reputation to win over more travellers with the quality accommodation and personalised service that we have become trusted to provide.”
The launch of the new Naypyidaw hotel marks the latest stage in Pan Pacific’s expansion in Myanmar. The Parkroyal Yangon, which has been operating for 12 years, is being refurbished, and late last year the company announced plans for the 348-room Pan Pacific Yangon, which is expected to open in 2017.
