Throughout November the hotel will offer a wide range of special 20th anniversary offers and activities for guests to enjoy.

As Shangri-La Hotel Yangon celebrates its 20th anniversary this month, some Yangon residents and returning travellers will recall it’s original name Traders. Under the same hotel management group of Hong Kong billionaire Robert Kuok, an extensive renovation over 2,5 years revealed the upgraded facilities in 2014 and it became another feather in Kuok’s five-star Shangri La chain of hotels.

Back in November 1996 when Trader’s Hotel opened its doors to public it quickly established itself as one of the top hotels in the city for business and pleasure, and even served as home base for the United Nations offices from 2007- 2013. The establishment’s rebrand two years ago was part of a push by Shangri-La to revive projects that were stalled almost 2 decades prior as a consequence of the Asian Financial Crisis, economic sanctions and a travel boycott on the county.

Today the outlook is very different and the hotel’s 20th anniversary celebration coincides with yet more expansion and tourism set to boom. Sule Square beside Sule Shangri-La nears completion this month to offer a multi-storey commercial tower for offices, luxury lifestyle shopping and some much-needed underground parking in the city.

The hotel’s restaurants are among the city’s favourites and the lobby lounge is prime viewing spot to observe this year’s changes in high-season travellers. So raise a glass and join in the multitude of 20th anniversary celebrations all month long.

Five Ways to Celebrate 20 Years of Hospitality

Spend Your Birthday at Café Sule: Guests born in November are invited to celebrate their birthday at Café Sule with lunch or dinner. Simply bring along two or more paying guests and you personally will be wined and dined for free.

Plenty for Twenty at Summer Palace: Resident Chef Pang has put his chopsticks to the test and created a special seven-course menu of Cantonese creations for just USD20 nett per person. You don’t need a fortune cookie to tell you this is a great deal!

Drink & Dine! At Gallery Bar: Enjoy a main course with a free glass of wine, beer or soft drink for the memorable price of, yes, you guessed it…US$20 nett. Choose from a lip-smacking menu of Grilled Corn-Fed Chicken Supreme, Roasted Sea Bass with Olive Crust, Slow Cooked Beef Rump and Vegetable Lasagna with Basil Pesto.

Stay in the city for 20% less: Take a break in the heart of the city with the special Suite November Package offering 20% discount on best available rates. Guests enjoying this offer also receive a 20% discount on food and beverage through the hotel, as well as spa.

A Walk in the Park: Join the Shangri-La Walkathon 2016 on November the 19th – a 4km fun walk around Kandawgyi Lake – and simultaneously raise funds for the hotel’s CSR beneficiary, the Yangon Children’s Hospital. Enjoy the scenery, walk off those fine dining calories and raise money for a great cause, we’re guessing you’ll feel at least 20% better for doing so!
