Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has announced plans to open its sixth Asian property, Rosewood Yangon in Myanmar this winter. The property is one of numerous exciting openings for the brand, with properties also set to open this winter in Montecito, Bangkok, Guangzhou and Hong Kong.
The brand currently manages 24 one-of-a-kind luxury properties in 15 countries around the world. Rosewood Yangon will be no different, providing guests with an exquisite stay in the city. Located on The Strand in the heart of the city’s historic district, Rosewood Yangon will offer guests unparalleled access to the cultural riches of Myanmar’s largest city.
Ideally situated amidst classic colonial landmarks in the cultural heart and central business district, within walking distance to the city’s most notable attractions, guests can easily take in the bustling city life at the Bogyoke Aung San Market (formerly known as Scott’s Market), enjoy a cruise down the winding Yangon river, or immerse themselves in local culture at the iconic Shwedagon Pagoda.
“With its stunning vistas, awe-inspiring architecture, rich history and culture, Myanmar and Yangon are perfect examples of a Rosewood destination, and we look forward to introducing our affluential explorers to this destination,” says Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “Already an emerging regional business centre, Yangon is a wonderfully dynamic city with deep cultural traditions and is a perfect gateway for our discerning guests to discover the wonderful landscapes and culture of Myanmar.”
The hotel is housed within a stunning heritage building, originally constructed in 1927 as the New Law Courts by architect Thomas Oliphant and Doorman Long UK, the engineers behind the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. The property has been meticulously restored to incorporate every contemporary amenity and comfort while simultaneously preserving the essence and splendour of the building’s storied past.
Guests can check into 209 spacious guest rooms, suites, one- and two-bedroom apartment units. Boasting high ceilings and abundant natural light, most guest rooms also feature patios and balconies where guests can take in views of the majestic Yangon River or the beautifully landscaped internal courtyards. The hotel’s interiors have been designed to seamlessly blend the historical restoration with contemporary Burmese touches – all in Rosewood’s signature residential style.
For the gourmand traveler, the hotel will also offer five distinct dining venues featuring local, Asian, and internationally-influenced cuisine, including a residential-style tea lounge and patisserie, a modern Cantonese restaurant, a convivial brasserie, an intimate bar and cigar lounge, and a panoramic rooftop bar boasting sweeping views of the city and the Yangon River.
Rosewood Yangon will join Rosewood’s distinctive Asian properties including Rosewood Beijing, Rosewood Phuket, and Rosewood Sanya.
