Ngapali beach is beautiful and very clean and the hotel is perfectly located. However we expected far better from a hotel of this price range. Rooms were fine (although the mattress was very hard in our room) and the wifi wasn’t too bad. The swimming pool though seemed very dirty and we haven’t seen anyone using it in 3 days. The staff was nice as it always is in Myanmar but not very helpful (or not willing to help in some cases...). Housekeeping will come into your room in the morning even if you put the do not disturb sign on the door. Food is not tasteful at all, there are much better places on the beach for the same price or even cheaper. We loved the Yoma Cherry Lodge for dinner (beautiful place, amazing staff, delicious food and very good value for money!). Breakfast was okay but not very tasteful and my eggs were over cooked everyday. E-bikes are 4 times the price of what you pay in Bagan, boat trips are twice the price of what you would pay if you book somewhere else and don’t book your tuk tuk rides with them as prices they will negotiate with the drivers won’t be in your favour (a Uber in Australia would have been cheaper!). We asked if we could do a 2-hour boat trip instead of the half day trip which was offered everywhere and the only answer we received was “no”, not very flexible or willing to help :( Complimentary airport pick up is convenient but I think it’s offered by most hotels in Ngapali. Overall, our stay was okay but for more than $100 per night, we were expecting better service.

I stayed in December 2014. The fact that I haven’t forgotten this hotel (and to finally write a review) speaks volumes!
- Situated in the most beautiful, relaxing beach ever, wade out for meters and meters
- Warm service that is subtle, not in your face (if Theint Theint @ Isabella is still the manager, she’s lovely! Please say hello from Anthony!)
- Sit by the pool and laze the day away
- loved the breakfast buffet (included in hotel price?). And lunch/dinner also very good and well-priced.
- quiet! Can’t see or hear any other property/home/etc from inside the property
- Great location, walk down the beach 20 minutes to a fishing village and see the catch come in and weighed
- quick van ride or use hotel bikes to another small village with local artisan marketplace
- short bike ride in the other direction to a small center with more western-ish style shops

I spent 5 nights here: very nice location, friendly staff, fantastic breakfast, lovely location in the best spot to enjoy the sea with good sunbeds and umbrellas, the sunset and some lovely small beach restaurants few steps away.
There’s a pool too, but I just went for the sea!
I was in the rooms by the main buildings, so nothing to compare with the seaviews bungalows, but I cannot complain; rooms was very well equipped, cleaned twice/day, anything needed available. For the price is just more than fine. Shure, rooms are darker here, but ask yourself what do you need a bright room during the day if you’re by the beach...
Wifi was quite good almost everywhere.
Highly recommended!

As a local, I’ve always knew that Ngapali beach is one of the best beaches in Myanmar. Like most hotels in Ngapali, this hotel has a private beach front. There is a swimming pool and breakfast area is right behind the beach.

Reception area only has a small desk and could be improved to suit the hotel’s good rating. Spas were still under construction while I was there. Breakfast was very good. Staff were okay.

I really liked the patio. If you want a good nap in the afternoon, the place is cool and is provided with lounge chairs and shade from the big trees. If you like some sun, there are lounge chairs provided on the beach too. There are no rock areas in front of this hotel, so it’s good for swimming.

There are pretty good beach side seafood restaurants within 15 minutes walk, so you don’t have to get out onto the Main Street to find a restaurant. The beach is literally empty most of the time, so hotels don’t even need to guard their ‘private’ beaches.

We stayed 6 nights in early October. Thande Beach Resort was undergoing a major upgrade/renovations during our stay. This had very minimal impact on our stay. Breakfast was excellent and the chef certainly knows how to make a good omlette. We did not dine for lunch or dinner. The beach is lovely and was pretty clean. I would be interested to see the renovations.
