In Myanmar, there are 2 types of hotel operators. One is licensed to operate the hotel for the locals and the other is licensed for tourists.
4-star hotel accommodation is in great demand nowadays as the supply is low. It is sometimes not possible to secure a booking for 50 people in one particular hotel. However, Sedona Hotel has the place.
Hotels want 50% deposit as the following email shows.
E-MAIL FROM MYANMAR TO DESIGN TRAVEL PTE LTD DATED JUN 6, 2012
We check room availability for 50 people in one hotel and there is Sedona Hotel available for your group. But we have to give our confirmation to Sedona sooner to keep the room in safe condition due to tight booking of this year.
For your information, at the time of room confirmation, Sedona ask us for 50% deposit to make secure the booking.
So, could it be possible for you to pay 30% deposit of total payment at the time of your confirmation?
