I will be travelling in march with my family (husband and 2 children aged 5 and 7) around Burma ending up with one week in Ngapali. I am just really confused about which hotel to pick in Ngapali beach? We love small boutique hotels with that special touch in interior, service and surroundings. I am right now looking at Amata which get good reviews - but Sandoway also looks really nice but hasn't got any reviews since january 2010 - why is that?? I dont mind paying the prize if the place is right. Hope to get any good input about what exactly makes the difference between all these apparently lovely hotels in Ngapali!
