With the perfect location and blend of facilities, Meliá Yangon makes your Myanmar holiday choices easy. By Nandini Shukla
Overlooking the gleaming Inya Lake, Meliá Yangon offers the prospect of a memorable stay in the commercial and artistic hub of Myanmar.
The hotel is located in the heart of the city—on the Kaba Aye Pagoda Road—with many sites of importance, including the iconic Shwedagon Pagoda, a stone’s throw away. It takes you all of 15 minutes to reach the city centre and Yangon International Airport. Easy connectivity to Myanmar Plaza, one of the largest shopping malls in the country, makes life easier.
It’s not just the setting that stands out, the property’s contemporary and refined interiors are easy on the eyes too. The hotel offers spacious modern rooms—the smallest one is 48 square metres—all furnished with state-of-the-art amenities. If you opt to stay on The Level, Meliá’s signature executive floor, you enjoy numerous personalised benefits and privileges like exclusive access to the Level Lounge, which offers a panoramic view of Yangon.
There are three dining options that promise an unforgettable culinary journey. The Market, an all-day diner, stays true to its name with an open-market setting and abundance of local delicacies, Asian favourites and Western classics. The Lantern specialises in reinterpreted Vietnamese classics, which are served in private rooms that flaunt art deco interiors, or head to Olea for a remarkable gastronomic trip to Spain within Yangon.
The property appeals to both, business travellers and tourists. For the former, it offers more than 2,000 square metres of convention area with various sizes of ballrooms and function rooms available for a range of events. If you’re in Yangon for travel and recreation, the hotel has you covered with ample facilities, including a fully equipped fitness centre and an outdoor swimming pool.
Yangon has a lot to offer to the modern globetrotter, regardless of your purpose of visit. Meliá Yangon has spared no effort to ensure it does the same for its guests.
