The first hotel in Myanmar to be operated by Meliá Hotels International, Spain’s biggest hotel chain, opened last week at the Myanmar Centre complex on Kaba Aye Pagoda Road.
The 430-room Meliá Yangon, next to the Myanmar Plaza shopping mall, offers views of Inya Lake and the city skyline.
The hotel’s opening is part of an expansion strategy in the Asia-Pacific region by Meliá Hotels International, one of the world’s largest resort hotel chains, said industry website HN hospitalitynet.
It said the hotel is operating two restaurants, including an all-day dining venue called The Market, with another due to open in a few weeks.
The Garbo Bar, named after famed actress Greta Garbo, is due to open at year’s end and feature a theme celebrating the golden age of Hollywood, HN hospitalitynet said.
An on-site function area provides ballrooms and function rooms of different sizes and the hotel’s facilities also include an outdoor swimming pool, a fitness centre and soon-to-open spa, the report said.
