With the core ambition of establishing a new chain of hotels in Burma, Jasmine Rivera is a full collection of offers to capture a growing tourism market in the newly created democratic era of Myanmar.
At the arrival of Jasmine City, 5 towers enclose a courtyard capturing the energy of an Asian Style Urban District with theatres, restaurants, condominiums, hotels and nightlife events. Centered in the courtyard is a teak plantation known as the Jade Forest.
Investment in a country only at the beginning of its new democracy, means taking a risk in confidence of the new regime. In focusing the primary development around the concept of a Jade Forest, we offered the client a belief in a calm and protective future, inferring Jades symbolism in guarding from negative influence, and promoting wisdom, balance, and peace.
The Jade Forest is the precursor to arriving at the main resort hotel, Jasmine Rivera, where an aperture for the lobby becomes the threshold crossing through to the Zen Gardens and Central Pool, a destination fusing and celebrating Burmese art, culture and history with modern luxury.
Reflecting the colonial history of Yangon, the resort buildings are ordered and ornate, interwoven with Burmese traditional floating gardens, arts and crafts creating a watery oasis immersing guests in the spirit and calm that is the foundations of Buddhist teachings.
