Shangri-La Residences Debuts In Yangon

Situated in Yangon's prime residential area in 15 acres of greenery overlooking the serene Kandawgyi Lake and sacred Shwedagon Pagoda are 240 elegantly appointed apartments that make up the Shangri-La Residences.  Just opened to offer the brand's signature level of luxury and legendary hospitality, the apartments are housed in twin towers and range from two-bedroom units to four-bedroom penthouses with rooftop terraces.  Exclusive residential facilities include a lounge and function room, gourmet shop, well-equipped gymnasium, tennis courts, swimming pool and covered car park.

Minutes from the central business district, tenants will appreciate the convenience of a gated community and apartments measuring between 156 square metres and 209 square metres.  The penthouses are the largest units with 295 square metres to 434 square metres of space and unobstructed views of the city from the roof terrace.  All residential quarters are built-in with a well-equipped kitchen, laundry area with dryer, large backyard with a live-in area for a domestic helper, complimentary Wi-Fi and high speed internet access.

"Shangri-La Residences, Yangon is a sanctuary with extensive lifestyle services.  As more corporate travellers set up homes in Yangon, it is a natural progression for Shangri-La to provide residential facilities and to serve as an extended family to new members of the Yangon community," said Phillip Couvaras, general manager of Shangri-La Residences, Yangon.
