Wyndham Grand Yangon Royal Lake Hotel in Myanmar
Yangon – Myanmar’s largest city – is changing rapidly, and attracting more and more tourists and business travellers each year. The new Wyndham Grand Yangon Royal Lake Hotel will help meet that increasing demand, offering a tranquil escape in this bustling city.
Located on the banks of Yangon’s famous Grand Kandawgyi Lake, the new Wyndham property is an urban sanctuary that immerses guests in the city’s rich history, culture and landscape.
The design by architects HASSELL was heavily influenced by the sense of wonder visitors experience when they first discover Yangon and the mountainous landscape of Myanmar.
For example, guests arriving through the fourth floor lobby are treated to views of the lake and the shimmering Shwedagon Pagoda in the distance. The city’s characteristic brick red colour and Burmese vessels are seen in design touches throughout the hotel.
A natural tone-on-tone palette blended with atmospheric dim lighting in parts of the hotel creates a calm, resort-like feel, and local materials have been sourced wherever possible.
Creating a sense of discovery
The hotel’s outdoor spaces – and lake views – enhance the property’s peaceful feel and reinforce the connection to nature and local context.
We deliberately created a sheltered walkway between the lobby and the dining area so guests can experience the outdoors before sitting down for a meal. Clever use of planting creates ‘hidden’ areas, adding to the sense of discovery.
The interior design incorporates numerous structural steel beams – a striking element that’s now a memorable part of the space. And in the lobby, the reception table gives the impression of floating in the space.
As part of the mixed-use Kantharyar Centre, the hotel has also been thoughtfully integrated with a residential building, serviced apartments, office tower and retail centre.
The 270-room hotel – which includes amenities such as a swimming pool, spa, gym and international food and beverage offering – is set to open in the second half of 2018.
