Luxury hotels to rise in Myanmar beach destination

Ngwe Saung second most popular beach destination in Myanmar
A new mixed-use development is coming to Myanmar beach resort Ngwe Saung’s shores by end-2017, where it will raise luxury standards, room inventory and tourism infrastructure, TTG Asia reports.
Developed by Karaweik Coast, a joint venture company by Hong Kong-based H&CO Real Estate Holdings and Myanmar’s Mya Bay Development Company, the project will come with 512ha of hotel space along 8km of beach in its first site.
The second phase will include 1,214ha south of Mya Bay for a mini-city, jetty, golf course, hotels, restaurants, private hospital and playground.
Ngwe Saung, sitting on the Bay of Bengal, is a four-hour drive from Yangon and Myanmar’s second most popular beach destination after Ngapali Beach. Ministry of Hotels and Tourism data showed that Ngwe Saung had 23 hotels with a total of 1,264 rooms as of end-2014.
