The Ministry of Hotels and Tourism is expecting about 300 hotel rooms to be available before the Southeast Asian Games begin on December 11.

The Shangri-La Residence and Rose Garden will have more rooms available as backup for upcoming SEA Games events in Yangon.

“The hotels are in finishing stage. But hotels need to provide other services besides serving as a place to sleep. However we are expecting half of rooms from them before the SEA Games,” said Hlaing Oo, Director of the Ministry Hotels and Tourism.

Shangri-La Residence and Rose Garden include 240 rooms and 300 rooms respectively.

Both are working in partnership with companies from Hong Kong and Thailand.

After booming of tourism industry in Myanmar, the companies decided to resume the construction of both hotels, sources from the ministry say.

The ministry has planned to provide more than 7,000 hotel rooms from 86 hotels in Yangon, Mandalay and Nay Pyi Taw during SEA Games. Yangon can provide 1,026 hotel rooms from 33 hotels including backup rooms.
