Yangon gets first lifestyle hotel

Yangon, Myanmar, will gain it’s first lifestyle hotel this September with the debut of Hotel G Yangon, an 85-room design hotel located at the heart of the city’s vibrant entertainment neighbourhood.

Comprising 85 guestrooms ranging from 15m² to 30m² across four categories – Good, Great, Greater and Greatest – each has been designed in wood tones that contrast with coloured walls and artworks for a contemporary take on Myanmar’s design heritage.

All guestrooms also provide complimentary WiFi; a phone with free local and international calls and data while roaming in Yangon; Bluetooth stereo alarm; LED smart TV; an e-reader application through which guests can access 6,000 international newspapers and magazines; safe; and tea and coffee making facilities.

Elsewhere, at the heart of the hotel will be an open plan lobby and signature Babett Eatery & Bar featuring exposed brickwork, wooden tables and suede banquettes. Open throughout the day it will offer a menu from Executive Chef Javier Ballesta.

“The time is right for the city’s first lifestyle hotel, where like-minded international travellers and local residents can find a trendy space to work, relax, play and collaborate,” comments Hotel G Yangon General Manager, Othmane Amrani. “There has never been a more exciting time to be in Yangon and every week we are seeing a new edgy gallery, shop or restaurant pop up in the neighbourhood around us. Our prime location represents the perfect mix between contemporary lifestyle and the traditions and values of this beautiful country, which perfectly reflects Hotel G’s DNA and vision.”

Situated in the vibrant Taw Min Gyi district, and surrounded by an eclectic mix of historic colonial elements, restaurants, malls, and traditional workshops, Hotel G Yangon will be managed by GCP Hospitality, which operates a network of the brand’s properties in Singapore, Bangkok, Pattaya, San Francisco, Hong Kong, Shenzhen, and scheduled openings in Beijing, Perth and Seoul.
