Hilton Yangon will offer one all-day dining restaurant, two specialty restaurants, a destination sky bar, a lobby lounge, approximately 15,000 sq ft (1,400 sq m) of event space, a fitness center, a pool, a spa and car park facilities.

Yangon in particular is positioned to grow much faster than many other emerging markets in Asia,” said Andrew Clough, senior vice president, development, Middle East & Asia Pacific, Hilton Worldwide. “Backed by a strong partner like LP Holding Co. Ltd, we are very confident that as the first internationally branded hotel in Yangon, Hilton Yangon will set the benchmark for quality hospitality experiences catering to both domestic and international travelers.”
