Myanmar's Eden Group promotes Hilton relationship
Myanmar's Eden Group plans to partner with Hilton Worldwide to invest an approximately $130 million in two properties. Initially covered by the Nikkei Asian Review, the schedule foresees the opening of 2018 properties in the top tourism resorts of Bagan and Inle Lake. This Inle Lake hotel is likely to be operating under the Hilton trademark, with the Bagan estate likely to be a Conrad.
The Eden Group also runs smaller Thingaha and Link brand owned and operated them. Mr. Chit Khine said to NAR that the Eden Group is considering the development of a hotel with a large Japan property group. It is the extension of a Hilton-Eden alliance. Hilton entered into executive contracts with the Eden Group in June 2014 for five Hilton Hospitals & Resorts in Myanmar, two of which are listed here, which are due to open in 2016, and the Hilton Mandalay in 2017.
As part of the Eden Group arrangement, two of the Group's recently opened facilities in the capitol, Nay Pyi Taw, and on Ngapali Beach in Rakhine State have been renamed Hilton Nay Pyi Taw and Hilton Ngapali Beach Resort, respectively, with the three others to come. Martin Rinck, Chairman, Asia Pacific, Hilton Worldwide, said: "We look forward to continuing our strategy of growing in Myanmar and significantly increasing our presence with this groundbreaking transaction that will enable us to make an economic and social contribution to this great state.
