Heritage Hotel Kempinski Yangon
Heritage Hotel Kempinski Yangon will inject new life into the former New Law Courts buiding.
Opening: Spring 2018
The former Myanmar capital is full of colonial-era buildings and The Heritage Hotel Kempinski Yangon is about to inhabit one of them.
Set inside the 1920s New Law Courts building, once home to many a grand gala, this five-year-long restoration project will open this spring on Strand Road, Yangon's major thoroughfare.
Designed by architect Thomas Oliphant Foster, the property should be a glamorous mix of old and new, featuring three-story-high columns, marble floors and flashes of gold accents.
Inside, 219 rooms and suites feature soaring ceilings, while several restaurants -- including a Cantonese affair and a French brasserie -- take guests on a gourmet tour around the world.
The hotel also aims to be a hub of classy nightlife, opening a DJ-fueled rooftop pool bar, an old-school cigar lounge and a classic European bar pouring bespoke cocktails and a long list of whiskies.
