Hilton for Myanmar

Myanmar, once known as Burma, now has a Hilton at Nay Pyi Taw in the national capital.  The property opened last week.  Situated 200 miles north of Yangong (formerly Rangoon), Nay Pyi Taw has been the capital of Myanmar since 2005.

The new hotel boasts 202 rooms and suites with wi-fi capabilities, and flat-screen televisions offering satellite channels.  Room options include one-bedroom suites, two-bedroom suites and two Presidential Suites.

Geared for the business travellers and government delegations, Hilton Nay Pyi Taw offers five function spaces and a 458m2 ballroom, as well as a business centre.

There are three restaurants and bar options, The Elements all-day dining restaurant, Boardwalk poolside bar, and the Axis Lounge in the hotel lobby.  Recreational facilities include a spa, outdoor swimming pool, fitness centre and tennis court.

Set amid lush tropical landscaped gardens, the Hilton Nay Pyi Taw spans more than 100 acres of land within the developing Dekhina Thiri Township.  This location is close to main government administrative offices and is a 30-minute drive from the Nay Pyi Taw International Airport.  Hilton was the first western hotel group to sign an agreement to operate a hotel in the country and plans to have five operational by 2017.  www3.hilton.com
