Forum Architects, Studio HBA design Sedona Hotel Yangon’s new wing

Sedona Hotel Yangon is making an addition to the existing five-star luxury hotel. Set to open in late 2015, the new wing to Sedona Hotel Yangon will have a high-end retail experience and a luxury spa.

As one of Yangon’s five-star hotels, Sedona Hotel Yangon sits on eight acres of landscaped gardens and water features with views of the Shwedagon Pagoda and Inya Lake. Currently, the hotel offers 366 newly upgraded guestrooms and suites, along with several dining options, executive club rooms and a fitness center with a swimming pool, sauna and steam bath.

Sedona Hotel Yangon’s new Inya Wing derived its name from the lake in front of the hotel. The tower will offer an additional 431 guestrooms and suites along with a grand lobby and high-end retail gallery which will connect the new tower to the existing building. The Inya Wing will also have a new fitness center, an all-day restaurant, a new luxury spa and an executive lounge.

HOTEL OPTIMIZATION PART 2 | SEPTEMBER 10 & 24, 2020

Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.


With architecture by Singapore-based Forum Architects and interiors designed by Studio HBA, the Inya Wing draws its inspiration from traditional Burmese culture and art interpreted into contemporary design.

The traditional Burmese umbrella is one cultural theme carried throughout the new wing from the lighting centerpiece in the lobby to the fritted glass ceiling. The lacquered rice bowl is used as a sculptural element that is incorporated into the lobby art and the guestroom lamps. The central color palette of red and gold will be woven throughout the new wing, a nod to Myanmar’s traditional Buddhist influences and the region’s indigenous lacquerware.

The new wing is being built utilizing sustainable materials.
