Wyndham Hotel Group plans to expand its portfolio of offerings in Southeast Asia to Myanmar for the first time with the signing of a franchise agreement for a 260-room Wyndham Grand® hotel in Yangon, the country’s capital city. The five-star Wyndham Grand Yangon Royal Lake will be part of the mixed-use Kantharyar Centre Project at the southern fringe of Yangon’s popular Kandawgyi Lake. The US$157 million complex will include a residential building, serviced apartments, an office tower and a retail center.
The new hotel will add to Wyndham Hotel Group’s presence in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Rim, which currently consists of more than 60 hotels already open under the Wyndham Hotels and Resorts®, Ramada®, Days Inn®, Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham® and TRYP by Wyndham® brand flags. More than 60 properties are currently under development in the region.
Elsewhere in Asia, the company recently announced plans to expand in China with the opening of eight new Ramada hotels and three new-construction Wyndham® properties over the next four years.
Wyndham Grand Yangon Royal Lake will offer a banquet hall, two multi-purpose conference rooms, a meeting room, a swimming pool, a gym, a spa and on-site international restaurants themed to satisfy travellers from around the world.
