 First US Hotel chain arrives in Myanmar

Hilton Worldwide became the first American hotel chain to operate in Myanmar since the easing of US sanctions, when it held the official opening of the Hilton Nay Pyi Taw on October 17.

The group have entered into an agreement with Yangon based Eden Group, U Chit Khine spokesperson for the new hotel told Mizzima at a sideline of the official opening of the hotel.

“The Hilton will assist in the operational management of the hotel and bring the benefits of a worldwide sales and marketing network to this partnership,” said U Chit Khine.

Mr William Costley, the hotel group’s vice-president of operations in South East Asia said “The reason for Hilton coming to Nay Pyi Taw is all about opportunity.”

Three other international hotel chains already operate in Nay Pyi Taw; Swiss-based Kempinski, France’s Accor groupand Singaporean Pan Pacific.

Hilton plan to extend their operations in Myanmar, opening a Ngapali Beach resort soon, Bagan and Inle Lake hotels in 2016, with a Mandalay foothold coming in 2017, said U Chit Khine.
