YANGON, MYANMAR (June 19): Sedona Hotel Yangon is adding an expansive new wing to its existing building. Set to open later this year, the Inya wing will augment the facilities of the five-star hotel with a high-end retail gallery and luxury spa.
Designed as a tower, it will also house an additional 431 guest rooms and suites and a grand lobby. The retail gallery will connect the tower to the existing building.
The Inya wing will feature a new state-of-the-art fitness centre to complement the spa, an all-day restaurant and an executive lounge.
Sedona Hotel Yangon sits on eight acres of landscaped gardens and water features and faces a view of the Shwedagon Pagoda and Inya Lake.
It currently offers 366 newly upgraded guest rooms and suites, several dining options, executive club rooms, and a fitness centre with a swimming pool, sauna and steam bath.
The architecture of the Inya wing was designed by Singapore-based Forum Architects and its interior design is by Studio HBA, a renowned hospitality design firm. Inspiration has been drawn from traditional Burmese art and culture, which has incorporated into the elegant and contemporary overall appearance of the hotel.
Sedona Hotel Yangon has ensured its new wing is being built with sustainable materials and that energy and water-efficiency are an integral part of the architecture.
