TORONTO—Kempinski Hotels plans to open the Kempinski Hotel Nay Pyi Taw, which represents the company’s first hotel in Myanmar.

“Our mission and our promise is to make the property the most luxurious hotel in Myanmar,” stated Franck Droin, general manager of the hotel. “We are confident that Nay Pyi Taw will soon be a popular destination with international leisure and business travelers seeking a relaxing alternative to Yangon.”
