Visitors come to Ngapali Beach to see a relatively undeveloped, pristine beach. There are resorts along the beach, but you’ll be staying near fishing villages where the locals still depend on their daily catch. It’s easy to spend the whole afternoon here, just soaking up the scenery and swimming. If you want to see more of the area, take a bike to travel the length of the beach and pass by villages and rice paddies. You can see more culture at the nearby Thandwe Market, which is a market where villagers buy and sell practical goods as well as produce.
The restaurant’s menu is inspired by Myanmar’s cuisine but is designed to cater to a wide range of palettes. There’s also a nice list of imported wines. At the bar, try one of the specially crafted cocktails.
Walking in the main building’s entrance, you’ll be struck by the gorgeous teak and striking pieces of artwork. The ground’s tropical gardens have palm trees and orchids, as well as a scenic lily pond. Ngapali Bay Villa and Spa has treatments that use local ingredients, including salt and fragrant essential oils.
Villas (and villa suites) have high, thatched roofs and floor-to-ceiling windows, making the rooms bright and inviting. Interiors blend neutral colors with upscale materials like marble, teak wood, and sandstone. Accommodations also have roomy sitting rooms. You can also choose villas that have their own plunge pools. When you leave for the day, you can store important items in the safety deposit box.
All of the accommodations come with air-conditioning. Rooms also come equipped with Wi-Fi and telephones. You can watch the LED flat-screen TV, which comes with a DVD player. Help yourself to the minibar and order from the 24-hour room service menu. Private villa bathrooms have hair dryers. You can keep your clothes neat using the hotel’s laundry service.
