“Perfect Escape”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

It may be a 5-6 hour drive from Yangon, but it is definately worth it for a total getaway, if you want some beach chill out time without the hassle of flights.The staff are full of welcome smiles and good service. Spend the extra for a water front room and you can wake up to a coconut lined beach with clear blue water seas. Enjoy the day relaxing by beach front pool, mixed with serious beach time and finishing with a smart cocktail watching the sunset.
The rooms are spacious and clean with good a/c. Breakfast fare was very good and overlooking the pool and beach.
We took trishaws into town (5mins) for excellent seafood. Jasmine restaurant does it very well.

Thank you Palm Beach for a few days of Bliss!!

Room Tip: Go for a beach front

Stayed here four nights. Ate all our meals here also. Food was fabulous. Service is top notch. this a small hotel. no frills. But everything checks out. The room was comfortable and very clean. We had a VIP room. I think its worth the extra money. We would sit in our deck chairs rather than under a palapa. Only 40 feet from the beach. The pool was clean and well looked after. I would stay here again. The only draw back is the 5 hour drive from Yangon.

Room Tip: Get a VIP room.

Wow, this was a treat. Although I have been to Ngapali three times and believed that was my favorite spot, now I am in love with this hotel and place as well. I had a garden view bungalow since all sea views were taken, but it did not take away from the experience. These bungalows are very airy, spacious, nicely designed. The hotel is not new, but well maintained and the staff is super sweet and attentive. I just felt spoiled the whole time. The food was great too and the restaurant service. I did have a little mouse trying to build a nest in the roof of my room and not letting me sleep, but the hotel staff tried to help with that too and one night I just had to sleep in another room. But it is close to nature, so I cannot fault hotel for the mouse's irresponsible behavior. I would go back.

Ngwe Saung is a very good destination which has nothing to envy to Ngapali and it is easier to get to. The Palm beach resort was fantastic, very relaxed, friendly but very attentive staff, pleasant and airy decor and great setting. Food was good but there are more interesting options for the seafood lovers in town.

I've not been to Ngapali but I think Ngwe Saung is more laid back, and The Palm Beach Resort is very laid back. Friends we met there said it was by far the best place at Ngwe Saung and from what we could see from the beach, I can believe it. Lovely little cottages in gardens, almost all with a sea view, with comfortable chairs on the verandas. We are not 'resort people' but we adored four days of reading, walking on the beach, swimming in the sea and in the lovely infinity pool, watching the sunset and eating under the starts. The food was very good, the cocktails a bit hit and miss (the Pimms came straight, no mixer!) and the staff delightful (particularly Thin Thin). The drive from Rangoon was interesting too - by private mini-bus; I am not sure the public bus would have been much fun.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a sea view; a few don't have them

We used to go to Palm Beach a few times a year while we lived in Myanmar, and every single time it was a fantastic experience. After a 3-year 'break' we were a little worried things might have changed, but there was no disappointment: the staff are as friendly, the views lovely, the rooms cozy, the breakfast nice (with the option of local food on request), and the atmosphere as amazing. It might not be the cheapest or the most exciting place to stay, but if you are looking for a relaxing time in a beautiful place, Palm Beach is highly recommended

Room Tip: Sea View is totally worth it!

I spent a week over Christmas at this resort with my family last year and it was the highlight of our trip to Myanmar. The place is incredibly tranquil and relaxing, even when fully booked. It has a slow, enchanting atmosphere, simply and tastily designed in traditional, colonial style, plenty of vegetation, many shaded spaces to spread customers around (bungalow veranda, poolside, beach huts, massage area) so you can do as much or as little socializing as you wish. This seems a popular spot for expats living in Yangon and it is particularly appreciated by families with small children, as there are always willing hands to help with the little ones whilst you have a massage, dinner or a long walk on the beach. My two girls managed to make friends very quickly and we hardly saw them for the rest of the holiday. The beach is simply gorgeous and this must be one of the last places in the world where you can take a stroll on white sand and only see a handful of people. The food is tasty and reasonably priced, although there are not many vegetable dishes on the menu. The staff is incredibly polite, please and they really go out of their way in order to ensure your experience is a pleasant one. Someone will come at least three times a day to clean and tidy up your room. And it is incredible how they manage to run this place without any electricity (none in town just yet). We had such a good experience here that I struggle t find any faults with the place. I guess booking would be complicated as they do not have their own website just yet, so one would have to rely on agencies might make the place a little costlier. We had friends in Yangon booking directly with the hotel for us so it was easy. You must leave a deposit upon booking if you want your room secured, or be sure that someone else will be enjoying it on your behalf.

Room Tip: We did not have sea front rooms but we could hear the ocean just as well. It is so pleasent to spend...
