Event organisers now have more options to consider at Myanmar’s capital city and beyond, with Hilton Worldwide having signed agreements with local conglomerate Eden Group to manage five properties across Myanmar, following the country’s sweeping social and economic reforms.
Eden Group’s two most recent properties will be rebranded into Hilton Nay Pyi Taw at the capital city and Hilton Ngapali Beach Resort at Rakhine State. Both properties will complete the brand makeover by October 2014.
In the next three years, the hotel group will extend its presence across the country with Hilton Bagan in 2016, located in the Bagan ancient city next to Ayeyarwady River that is known for its high number of Buddhist temples.
The Hilton Inle Lake, situated within the scenic lake precinct, will also open in 2016, while the Hilton Mandalay is slated for 2017.
“We are delighted to continue our strategic growth in Myanmar and to significantly increase our footprint with this landmark deal, which will allow us to contribute economically and socially to this great country,” said Martin Rinick, president of Asia Pacific for Hilton Worldwide.
