Yangon - Myanmar’s largest city - is changing rapidly, and attracting more and more tourists and business travellers each year. The new Wyndham Grand Yangon Royal Lake Hotel will help meet that increasing demand, offering a tranquil escape in the bustling city. Located on the banks of Yangon’s famous Grand Kandawgyi Lake, the new Wyndham property is an urban sanctuary that immerses guests in the city’s rich history, culture and landscape.

The design was heavily influenced by the sense of wonder visitors experience when they first discover Yangon and the mountainous landscape of Myanmar. For example, guests arriving through the fourth floor lobby are treated to views of the lake and the shimmering Shwedagon Pagoda in the distance. The city’s characteristic brick red colour and

Burmese vessels are seen in design touches throughout the hotel. A natural tone-on-tone palette blended with atmospheric dim lighting in parts of the hotel creates a calm, resort-like feel, and local materials have been sourced wherever possible.

Creating a sense of discovery

The hotel’s outdoor spaces – and lake views – enhance the property’s peaceful feel and reinforce the connection to nature and local context. HASSELL deliberately created a sheltered walkway between the lobby and the dining area so guests can experience the outdoors before sitting down for a meal. Clever use of planting creates ‘hidden’ areas, adding to the sense of discovery.

The interior design incorporates numerous structural steel beams – a striking element that’s now a memorable part of the space. And in the lobby, the reception table gives the impression of floating in the space.

As part of the mixed-use Kantharyar Centre, the hotel has also been thoughtfully integrated with a residential building, serviced apartments, office tower and retail centre.

The 270-room, 36,000 sqm hotel – which includes amenities such as a swimming pool, spa, gym and international food and beverage offering – is set to open in the second half of 2018.


HASSELL is a leading international design practice with studios in Australia, China, South East Asia, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. We judge the success of the buildings and places we design by the way people use and enjoy them - the clients who commission them, the people who inhabit them. Good design is about helping clients meet their needs and objectives.

It is also about the way people feel when they experience it, a sense of meaning, connection and belonging.

Malaysia’s First DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Opens in Penang

Family-friendly seafront resort features inter-connecting rooms, a kid’s club, dining options and event space, plus access to Malaysia’s first teddy bear-themed museum, TeddyVille

PENANG, Malaysia – (May 15, 2018) – DoubleTree by Hilton, one of Hilton’s (NYSE: HLT) 14 market-leading brands, has celebrated the opening of its first resort-style property in Malaysia: DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang.

Located in the vibrant beach area on Penang’s north coast, overlooking the Indian Ocean, DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang is a family-friendly resort with exceptional facilities for all ages - including access to Malaysia’s first teddy bear-themed museum, TeddyVille.

This upscale resort is just 45 minutes’ drive from Penang International Airport and 20 minutes from Georgetown, the island’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed capital, which is accessible via a complimentary shuttle bus service from the hotel.

“Blessed with a rich history, diverse culture and tropical scenery, Penang is a truly enchanting destination. As the first DoubleTree resort in Malaysia, we are delighted to bring the brand’s warmth and genuine hospitality to the country, as epitomized by the welcome cookie we offer to all our guests,” commented Jamie Mead, Regional General Manager, Hilton Malaysia.

Linda Giebing, DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang’s General Manager, added; “We have experienced strong demand since the hotel started operating in January, with high occupancy and interest from the events sector. I am confident that all guests will be captivated by our comprehensive range of facilities and renowned standards of hospitality.”

Overlooking Miami Beach and the turquoise seas beyond, DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang features a distinctive design concept that blends contemporary style with classical Peranakan motifs.

There are 316 rooms and suites; all equipped with walk-in rain showers, 40-inch LED TVs and Wi-Fi. Many rooms also feature a private balcony with sea views. Families can opt for two inter-connected rooms, which are linked by a hallway door to create a private sanctuary, complete with double and twin bedrooms and separate bathrooms.

Families also have an array of dining options to choose from, including special children’s buffets at Makan Kitchen, the resort’s lively all-day dining restaurant. Alternatively, guests can pick up light snacks - including DoubleTree’s signature chocolate chip cookies - at The Food Store, or enjoy refreshing drinks at the Axis Lounge.

Children will be kept entertained at the kid’s club, which features a wealth of immersive activities for youngsters, and a baby-sitting service is available. This will allow parents to enjoy their own quality time, perhaps with a revitalizing treatment at the spa, a workout at the fitness center, or simply by relaxing around the tropical outdoor pool, which features its own beach.

All ages can then come together at TeddyVille - a unique attraction that celebrates the origins of the humble teddy bear. With its large, cuddly collection, this delightful museum will captivate children and adults alike. Guests at the resort will enjoy 20% off the entrance fee.

Finally, the resort features state-of-the-art conference space, including three flexible meeting rooms for events of between 12 and 120 delegates, an outdoor terrace and a spacious ballroom capable of handling 550 guests. This makes it the perfect setting for every occasion, from corporate conferences to social soirées and spectacular seafront weddings.

DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang becomes the first DoubleTree Resort in Malaysia, and joins three other DoubleTree hotel properties in the country: DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Kuala Lumpur, DoubleTree by Hilton Melaka and DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Johor Bahru. It also becomes the 50th DoubleTree by Hilton property in the Asia Pacific region.

The new resort is also part of Hilton Honors, an award-winning guest-loyalty program for Hilton’s 14 distinct brands.

Karma Group has announced the acquisition of Karma Manoir des Deux Amants and Karma Residence Normande on the banks of the river Seine in the heart of picturesque Normandy in the French countryside.

The spacious and sumptuously furnished accommodations feature well-equipped kitchens, whilst the leisure complex provides entertainment for the whole family with a heated outdoor swimming pool, sauna and games room.

“There are few more stunning regions than Normandy, with its incredible history and gorgeous scenery so I am delighted to announce that Karma Group has acquired two resorts on the banks of the Seine, in one of the most glorious settings in the world” said John Spence, Founder and Chairman of Karma Group. “We are renovating and refurbishing the resorts to make them even better than they already are and I know they will be extremely popular with our Karma tribe, old and new.”

Yogyakarta, Indonesia – Yogyakarta Marriott Hotel, the first Marriott branded hotel in Indonesia, has opened in the heart of the cultural city, offering guests the opportunity to travel brilliantly by enjoying the sophisticated spaces and experiences of a internationally branded, superbly designed hotel in the city where traditions meet modern life.

The hotel’s 347 guest rooms and suites feature Marriott Modern styled decor with Javanese-inspired accents and inviting views of the pools or city, complemented with premium amenities, marble bathrooms, and 24-hour room service; whilst Suites and Club Rooms offer exclusive access to the M-Club, the largest club lounge in town. Guests can unwind in the Exercise Room, Quan Spa and outdoor pools, and savour local and international cuisines at the three creative dining venues. For shoppers, the hotel is conveniently attached to the largest mall in the city, whilst business travellers can stay connected with free Wi-Fi and convenient workstations. Several meeting rooms and pre-function areas are available to host business meetings and intimate events and the 1,870m2 pillar-less ballroom is the largest in the city.

Marriott Modern Design meets local inspiration – Designed by Jakarta based design firm Domisilium Studio, the 347-room hotel reflects local Javanese culture throughout its interior spaces, drawing design inspiration from the historical Taman Sari, a former royal garden of the Sultanate of Yogyakarta. The elements can be seen on the column and weaving details throughout the public areas of the hotel. The reception background utilizes a parametric design to evoke the water ripples of Taman Sari’s pavilions and pools with a similar concept applied to the ceiling details above the bar area in The Lounge, brought to life with clear white acrylic and sheer fabric. Throughout the hotel, the designers have used a calming and neutral color palette of browns, greys, blacks and whites and the modern, open spaces create a harmonious balance with marble, wood and stone.

“The design brief was to ‘Design Brilliantly’, to create a modern, contemporary hotel that reflects local Javanese traditions and values,” said Alain Rigodin, General Manager of Yogyakarta Marriott Hotel. “Through the use of the Kawung batik motif and the contemporary reimagining of local materials, textures, shapes, and colors, the results resonate with the new generation of traveler. Yogyakarta Marriott Hotel is the first 5-star hotel to open in the city for over 10 years and the modern, contemporary styling throughout sets a new standard.”

A central theme throughout the hotel is Kawung batik, one of the oldest ‘forbidden batiks’. The guestroom corridor carpet features a custom designed Kawung batik pattern inspired by flower petals falling on water. The Kawung pattern also appears on the headboards in the guestrooms, mimicking flower petals scattered by the breeze, and as metal die-cut features in the elevator lobby and guestroom signage.

Throughout the hotel, the design incorporates cool and soothing colours and textures. Marble in shades of white, grey and black invoke the essence of water and balance the warmth of the wood finishes prevalent in the interior spaces. The energetic atmosphere of Yogyakarta Kitchen is enhanced by the use of wood finishes with bold characters and vibrant Javanese-styled fabrics, whilst the more relaxed ambience in The Lounge and M Lounge are reflected in a sophisticated palette with light wood veneer on the furniture balancing with the darker wood floor.

The concept for Taman Sari Bar & Grill was a semi-outdoor area that extends to the outdoor pools with a tropical lounge feeling that remains true to its Javanese setting. The designers specified more textured materials to emphasize the indoor-outdoor feel and added blue geometric floor tiles to give a batik-like expression to the space.

The designers collaborated with a local weaving specialist to develop a unique pattern for the hotel’s M Lounge. Synthetic rattan strips are combined in different scales and colors to transform a simple pattern into a more sophisticated design, whilst the use of a neutral color palette incorporating black, grey and white adds a modern and refined feeling throughout.

The lobby of Yogyakarta Marriott Hotel was designed to be welcoming and encourage interaction between guests by avoiding traditional hotel lobby seating arrangements. The custom designed semi-circular sofa has a functional built-in table and mimics the circular Kawung batik inspired skylight, juxtaposing with the horizontal and vertical lines that dominate the reception area.

Creative destination that inspires brilliance – A city boasting diverse historical influences, Yogyakarta is often considered the heartland of Javanese culture. From contemporary cityscapes to centuries old monuments, the city is becoming an increasingly popular destination for business and leisure travelers. It has a reputation as a shopper's paradise with bustling markets and avenues, where guests can purchase paintings and artworks as well as handicrafts created by Java's finest artisans, who excel in batiks, silver and leather works.

“When visitors come to Yogyakarta they can easily find a balance between business and pleasure,” continued Alain Rigodin. “You don’t have to make a choice. You can come for business and then you can mix in leisure because of Yogyakarta’s incredibly rich and diverse nature. From a cultural point of view, there are the temples, the Palace, the Batiks and the Javanese dancers whilst the food in the city is wonderful. I always recommend visitors try Gudeg, a traditional sweet jackfruit dish, or ayam goreng kalasan , which is chicken made with coconut milk, garlic and coriander. Our friendly team is always available to help organise expeditions.” 

The city is the gateway to some of ancient Asia's grandest wonders, including the great 9th century Hindu and Buddhist temples of Prambanan and Borobudur, together with their subsidiary candis (temples) and shrines. The ornate 18th-century royal complex, or kraton, encompasses the still-inhabited Sultan’s Palace and numerous open-air pavilions that host classical Javanese dance shows and concerts of gamelan music, characterized by gongs, chimes and plucked string instruments.
With a new international airport slated to open next year, Yogyakarta Marriott Hotel’s ideal location makes it the perfect base for visitors to the city. The hotel is directly connected to the largest shopping mall and entertainment centre in central Java and just 20 minutes from bustling Malioboro Street, where guests can explore handicraft shopping stalls, street food and restaurants.
