Myanmar’s first Okura hotel to open in Yangon

Myanmar will welcome its first property under Okura Hotels & Resorts come 2020. Located on the site of a former museum in the city downtown, the 390-room Okura Prestige Yangon will be part of a mixed-development. It will offer banquet halls, conference rooms, an all-day dining area, a Japanese restaurant, a lounge bar, plus an executive lounge with views of the Shwedagon Pagoda.

In a statement, Toshihiro Ogita, president of Hotel Okura, said that the group is keen to add three to five more hotels in Myanmar over the next five years. In total, the group plans to expand its global portfolio to 100 properties, primarily in Asia, by 2020.
