YANGON, MYANMAR - Awei Metta, a chic new business and leisure hotel in Yangon, has announced its grand opening for December 15.

Located in the leafy western suburbs of Myanmar’s former capital, close to the city’s international airport, this modern 46-key resort features a restaurant overseen by a chef experienced in French cuisine, a lobby lounge and bar, a sophisticated cigar room, swimming pool, fitness center, spa, tennis courts, and a conference room seating up to 200 guests.

Owned by the Memories Group, Awei Metta shares the property with the Gary Player-designed Pun Hlaing Golf Course, which has hosted the Asian Tour Myanmar Open for the past two years.

The higher floors of the five-storey Awei Metta overlook the palm tree-lined fairways of the course. The hotel’s 46 wood-panelled suites, which range in size from 46m² to 95m², each come with private balcony, office space and wide-screen TV.

French-born Eric Laurent is the recently appointed general manager of this new hotel. An experienced sommelier and the son of a three-star Michelin chef, Laurent was previously GM with JA Resorts & Hotels in Dubai and several luxury resorts across Myanmar.
