Hilton Worldwide has expanded its global portfolio of hotels to Myanmar with the opening of Hilton Nay Pyi Taw, in the country’s capital city.
The 202-key Hilton Nay Pyi Taw spans more than 100 acres and is situated within the developing Dekhina Thiri Township.
Owned by Eden Group Company and managed by Hilton Worldwide, Hilton Nay Pyi Taw is in close proximity to main government administrative offices, Nay Pyi Taw International Airport and Ruby Hall, the meetings and conventions venue.
Hilton Worldwide Asia Pacific president Martin Rinck said: "The opening of Hilton Nay Pyi Taw is a very significant milestone for Hilton Worldwide; it marks the entry of the company into the dynamic and emerging market of Myanmar.
"Being one of the first international hospitality companies to enter many different countries in Asia Pacific, including Japan 51 years ago, China 26 years ago and Myanmar today, we continue to explore new frontiers, being where the world’s business and leisure travelers want to be."
The hotel offers a wide selection of rooms that include one and two bedroom suites, and two presidential suites.
All 202 rooms will give exclusive access to the executive lounge, which offers complimentary continental breakfast, all-day light refreshments, as well as evening cocktails.
Hilton Nay Pyi Taw offers five function spaces, including a standing reception area that can accommodate up to 410 people in the 458m² ballroom. A business centre is also available for guests to stay connected and productive throughout their stay.
Hilton Nay Pyi Taw offers three restaurant and bar options, as well as in-room dining round the clock. Also, guests can enjoy a spa, outdoor swimming pool, fitness centre and a tennis court.
