Traders Hotel in Yangon has been rebranded as Sule Shangri-La Yangon after an extensive refurbishment and has a Celebration Package to mark its reopening.
The 484-room hotel, which underwent a 21/2-year renovation, is near the iconic Sule Pagoda, which is more than 2,000 years old. The hotel's lobby is designed in a colonial style, with grand white columns, high ceilings and tiered crystal chandeliers. Burmese art, wood carvings and vases are displayed throughout the hotel, and wall murals are painted with motifs of the green peafowl, one of the country's national animals.
Under the Celebration Package, rooms start from US$215 (S$270) a night for a minimum stay of two nights in a deluxe room.
The package is available for stays until the end of July and includes a one-way airport transfer and US$40 of hotel credit that can be used for food and beverage, laundry or massage services at the hotel.
