It’s a big week for Kempinski-- with the announcement of a new resort in Dominica (which will be a game changer for the Caribbean island nation), and today’s opening of the brand’s first property in Myanmar. Located next to the Myanmar International Convention Centre (MICC) in the country’s capital city, the Kempinski Hotel Nay Pyi Taw is opulently designed in four Burmese style villas.
There are 141 guest rooms with high-tech amenities, including the lavish Grand Royal Suite, the largest hotel room in Myanmar. Facilities include the fitness club, outdoor swimming pool, high-end bars and restaurants, and the soon-to-open Kempinski The SPA overlooking the garden. The hotel received a sizeable investment ($45 million) from Kempinski, the hotel operator, along with $45 million from the site owners, the Kanbawza Group and Jewellery Lucky Company. The target market is government delegations, diplomats, and vacationing travelers.
The number of hotel openings continues to accelerate in Myanmar as the country is an increasingly popular destination. In December 2013, Myanmar's Ministry of Hotels and Tourism reported 923 licensed hotels and more than 34,000 rooms throughout the country.
