Building on its experience of over 20 years in Myanmar, Keppel Land Limited (Keppel Land) has expanded the Sedona Hotel Yangon with a new 29-storey Inya Wing which was opened recently, strengthening its position as the accommodation of choice for business and leisure travellers in the country.
Guest-of-Honour H.E. U Ohn Maung, Union Minister, Ministry of Hotels and Tourism and Mr Koh Chee Chian, Singapore’s Deputy Chief of Mission and Counsellor to Myanmar, graced the ceremony, accompanied by senior management from Keppel Corporation and Keppel Land and witnessed by about 300 guests.
Mr Ng Ooi Hooi, President (Regional Investments) of Keppel Land, said, “Keppel Land was one of the first foreign companies to enter Myanmar. This year marks Sedona Hotel Yangon’s 20th anniversary since its opening in 1996. We will continue to participate in the country’s growth in tourism, which is targeting 7.5 million visitor arrivals per annum by 2020.
“The new Inya Wing, with its 431 spacious and well-appointed rooms, will bring the total room inventory at Sedona Hotel Yangon to 797 and Sedona’s portfolio in Myanmar to over 1,000 rooms. Inya Wing will set a new benchmark for modern hospitality in Yangon, in line with Sedona’s brand promise to provide our customers with quality and thoughtful experiences.”
Designed by a team of reputable consultants from Singapore, including award-winning firm, Forum Architects, Inya Wing is linked to the existing hotel block via a new connector which features a high-end retail gallery and an elevated podium that houses an alfresco terrace featuring a freeform swimming pool, fully equipped state-of-the-art fitness centre, an all-day dining restaurant, a spa and an Executive Club Lounge.
Keppel Land first entered Myanmar in 1993 when it broke ground for Sedona Hotel Yangon, introducing its brand of signature Asian hospitality. A year later, the Company broke ground for its second Sedona hotel in Mandalay.
Sitting majestically on eight acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, Sedona Hotel Yangon is a 20-minute drive away from the international airport and the bustling city centre. Within close proximity to the famous Shwedagon Pagoda and Inya Lake, this deluxe five-star hotel in Yangon impresses with its local ethnic decor and architecture.
Sedona has established itself as the choice accommodation provider in the country, garnering numerous awards. Sedona Hotel Yangon clinched the ‘Highly Commended’ Award for New Hotel Construction and Design (Myanmar) at the Asia Pacific Property Awards 2016-2017 for its new Inya Wing. At the World Travel Awards, accolades that Sedona Hotel Yangon garnered include Myanmar’s Leading Hotel Suite 2014 and Myanmar’s Leading Hotel 2013, while Sedona Hotel Mandalay won Myanmar’s Leading Resort 2013.
