Located in the Tamwe Township, near Kandawgyi Lake, “Sheraton already has a strong footprint across Southeast Asia and the signing of Sheraton Yangon Hotel signals the next great international expansion opportunity,” said Rajit Sukumaran, Senior Vice President, Acquisitions and Development, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Asia Pacific.
Sheraton Yangon Hotel will open during an exciting period in the country, spurred by a major investment from the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism that has encouraged 4 million international arrivals in 2015 alone. Yangon boasts a number of top tourist attractions, including the iconic Shewedagon Pagoda—the single most important religious site in all of Myanmar—conveniently located 2.8 kilometres from the hotel. As the country’s largest city, Yangon operates as the country’s principal political, cultural, and commercial centre. An easy 20 minutes from the Yangon International Airport, Sheraton Yangon Hotel will help meet the strong demand for quality accommodation for business and leisure travellers alike.
