Showcasing a fusion of contemporary Myanmar style and old-world grandeur, Rosewood Yangon has soft opened its doors recently.
As Myanmar continues to welcome a fast-growing number of international travelers, the hotel takes on a transformative role in the country’s largest city, combining an elevated level of luxury with strong cultural outreach.
Housed in one of the grandest and most expansive buildings built during the colonial era, formerly the New Law Courts built in 1927, the hotel is located in the heart of the historic center amidst other heritage buildings at the junction of the famous Strand and Sule Pagoda Roads.
With its dramatic row of original three-story-high Ionic colonnades, the hotel forms a massive presence on the banks of the Irrawaddy River.
“Rosewood Yangon exemplifies a perfect balance between heritage and chic modernity in this vibrant city,” says Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “We are thrilled to be a launching point for ‘affluential explorers’ to begin a journey of discovery in one of world’s most evocative, captivating and still relatively undiscovered destinations.”
The hotel exquisitely expresses A Sense of Place®, the Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® brand philosophy of reflecting the history, culture, architecture and sensibilities of the
location.
For its efforts to restore the building to its original form, Rosewood Yangon has received the 31st Yangon Heritage Trust Blue Plaque to commemorate the building’s deep historic and cultural significance and its enduring legacy.—GNLM
