Minor Hotels will debut its Avani and Oaks brands in Yangon, Myanmar, with the development of two hotels as part of a management agreement with Kajima Yankin PPP, a wholly capitalized subsidiary of Kajima Overseas Asia. 

The 250-room Avani Yangon Hotel and 221-room Oaks Yangon are both set to open in 2024 and will be part of a mixed-use development that will include office and retail space located in central Yangon.

The hotels will be located less than nine kilometers from Yangon International Airport and will occupy two buildings joined by an underground retail center landscaped above with an urban park. Known for its shopping and pagodas, Yankin Township is east of Inya Lake with the historic old Yangon town just a few kilometers away.
