Rose Wood opens a hotel in Myanmar
The Southeast Asian tournament was dominated by three luxurious labels for decades: However, new mark on the pad, Rosewood, whose first resort in the area opened last November in Phuket and our hot list of the best new establishments for the sensational sound massage alone) are rapidly gains.
Hong Kong-based, formerly a Texas-based franchise (which is why it is slowly collapsing into its home market), already next year announces a constant flow of store launches in Hong Kong, Sanya, Beijing and Luang Prabang. It is certainly an aspirational schedule, but also a surprise predictability for a business committed to opening up in less researched areas (we could have seen a Rosewood Hong Kong on the skyline when Dallas was its main office in 2011).
When Rosewood said that he would come to Yangon - Myanmar's capitol, whose tourist industry was threatened by unstable politics - before the end of the year, we took note of this. "It is a beautifully vibrant town with a rich heritage and a great place for our demanding visitors to explore the beautiful landscape and civilization of Myanmar," says Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood.
Rose Wood Yangon will have 209 colonial-style suite in a historic 1,927 mansion in the beloved Strand neighborhood before the end of the year, the firm says, which means that visitors will be within easy walk of just about anywhere in the neighborhood, which includes Bogyoke Aung San Market, the riverbank and the 650-year-old Shwedagon Pagoda.
In addition to five Michelin-style eateries, a lounge and a lounge, the new building will feature Rosewood's Senses Spa, the first of which opened at the Phuket in order for the Phuket to enter the area. Yangon's only five-star resort is The Strand, a 1901, victorian building on the bank of the Yangon River that is widely regarded as one of Asia's finest historical properties.
In the past year, the peninsula promised to open in the country's capitol by 2021.
