Grand Mercure debuts in Myanmar

  • 10 August 2018

Grand Mercure announces the opening of its first property in Myanmar, one of the most mysterious and undiscovered destinations in the world. Overlooking the famed Schwedagon Pagoda, Grand Mercure Yangon Golden Empire boasts 175 guest rooms and suites designed by local artist Pyar Dade.

“This is our first Grand Mercure in Myanmar and the opening of Grand Mercure Yangon Golden Empire encapsulates the cultural touchstone of the destination and heritage in bringing local stories to life,” said Patrick Basset, Chief Operating officer of AccorHotels, Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia and the Maldives. 

“As Myanmar develops as a popular destination for tourists, business and corporate visitors, we expect to see significant development within the years to come. Renowned for its lush tropical trees, beautiful lakes and one of the ancient wonders of the world, Yangon is definitely poised to lead further growth in the country”

According to the United Nations World Tourism Organisation, Myanmar welcomed just 21,000 international arrivals in 1990, that rose to 120,000 in 1995, 660,000 in 2005 and 790,000 in 2010. Last year, Myanmar welcomed 3.44 million visitors up from 2.9 million in 2016 which saw an 18 per cent increase.
