Myanmar: gorgeous opening for MGallery
Majestic architecture, sumptuous tropical surroundings… The first Burmese Accor hotel radiates with serenity, nestle next to Myanmar’s capital’s gorgeous lake.
This newly-built, high-end boutique hotel is considered one of the finest hotels in Nay Pyi Taw, welcoming sophisticated travellers visiting the country's capital. The Lake Garden Nay Pyi Taw is set in a beautiful landscaped garden overlooking a tranquil lake and combines lavish facilities and amenities with Myanmar's exquisite cultural heritage.
Myanmar, a fascinating new destination
The hotel opens at a time of surging international interest in Myanmar as a tourist and business destination since the country embarked on a series of economic reforms in 2011. Accor has announced it will open at least a further five hotels in Myanmar in the coming three years and the group looks forward to playing a role in growing the country's tourism infrastructure.
"We are delighted to welcome this opening. The Lake Garden, Nay Pyi Taw comes at a time when the capital is seeing an influx of visitors with a strong demand for an upscale accommodation with international standard facilities and superb services," says Mr Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer of Accor Thailand, Vietnam, South Korea, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and the Philippines.

Its contemporary, lush comfort and a sense of 'Serenity' can be felt throughout the property, while its five-star hospitality and local charm will offer guests a realm of pure pleasure throughout their stay."
An establishment representing the country's local culture
Guests will experience a sense of arrival when greeted at the hotel entrance by three imposing bells, reminiscent of the Great Bell of Mingun - reputed to be the second largest bell in the world - and the inspiration behind the hotel's logo and theme. The hotel's interior is full of stunning design ingenuities and magnificent centre-pieces, such as a gigantic alms-like bowl in the lobby, Burmese script adorning the walls, and architectural arched doorways and Burmese arts and visual details throughout.
The hotel has four elegant, low-level buildings which house 165 rooms and suites, all are spacious havens designed to provide full relaxation and comfort while equipped with state-of-the-art technology. The rooms' décor is artfully crafted with richly-textured materials and furnishings revealing a journey into Myanmar's historical culture.
To indulge discerning travellers with top gastronomic experiences, The Lake Garden offers several dining venues including: The Grand Bell - an all-day dining restaurant offering a diverse choice of cuisines, from local Myanmar dishes to neighbouring influences.

The hotel's meeting facilities are the city's best, consisting of a conference room which can accommodate up to 250 delegates, six breakout meeting rooms for small-to-medium size functions, and two state-of-the-arts boardrooms.
This MGallery also offers full relaxation options at its spa, offering massage therapies that will rejuvenate and refresh both body and mind, sauna, swimming pool and a fitness centre.
