TRYP by Wyndham debuts in South East Asia
TRYP by Wyndham, Wyndham Hotel Group's modern and trendsetting lifestyle hotel brand, has arrived on the shores of South East Asia with the opening of a new-construction hotel in Yangon, Myanmar. The 60-room TRYP Yangon is Wyndham's inaugural hotel to open in Myanmar.
"Myanmar is quickly becoming a must-see destination for international travellers with nearly eight million arrivals in 2015 thanks to an influx of foreign investment and Yangon's expanded international airport," said Mr. Barry Robinson, President and Managing Director of Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia and Pacific Rim.
"The country's travel and tourism sector is primed to spike even higher as people seek out new business opportunities, setting the stage for increased hotel demand in Yangon. TRYP by Wyndham's unique urban flair will help visitors uncover the side of Yangon not in guidebooks, putting the city in a new light for visitors who want to experience it like a local."
Set in the heart of Yangon's lively Mayangone Township, TRYP Yangon offers a restaurant and a lounge bar for evening cocktails in a dynamic social setting, as well as free Wi-Fi for guests to stay connected with friends and family. Sixty design-driven guest rooms feature a mix of patterns, textures and unexpected contrasts inspired by Myanmar's longstanding culture and traditions. Art fixtures include kaleidoscopic landscapes of farmers toiling in farmlands and rice paddies, a nod to the country's agrarian heritage.
The hotel is operating under a franchise agreement with developer Dragon Mountain Holding Co. Ltd. and is managed by Kosmopolitan Hospitality, a hotel management company headquartered in Bangkok.
Spokesperson for Dragon Mountain Holding Co. Ltd., Mr. U Tin Maung, said, "I am thrilled to work with Wyndham Hotel Group to launch the vibrant TRYP by Wyndham brand in South East Asia. Wyndham Hotel Group has a growing track record in the region and we were impressed with their worldwide branding and distribution, as well as their commitment for providing excellent guest experiences."
Mr. Glenn DeSouza, Chief Executive Officer of Kosmopolitan Hospitality added, "The opening of TRYP Yangon will invigorate Yangon's hospitality landscape with its edgy concept and high-speed internet connectivity. Along with the exceptional service expected from one of the world's most renowned international brands, the hotel is poised to be a favourite among regional and international travellers."
TRYP Yangon is located less than five minutes from Myanmar Plaza, which offers upscale retail and dining options, and is a short stroll from many of the city's glittering golden temples, including the majestic 34-meter-high Kabar Aye Pagoda and the vast Inya Lake.
