My friend had been in Myanmar for about 5 days by the time we reached Ngapali and we were knackered. Looking to stay at the beach was paradisiac. We landed and the kind staff of RBM was there to greet us and drive us to our hotel. As all transportation in Myanmar is terrible, this was alright in comparison.
When we arrived at the resort, it was... rustic... very rustic. It was not only "old fashioned" and "simple" but also a bit rough around the edges on the cleanliness. I mean, I may be a bit OCD, but even my friend who is willing to go simple, she couldnt bare it either. We arrived in our room, it was just wood... Sounds nice? I know, I thought it would be but trust me, it was terrible. Everything was wood, dark wood. The room was badly lit with a neon light and there were bugs.
The beds were in decent shape with nets around them (which weren't too white but alright). The bathroom was horrible. It looked like a den. This was a trip with a friend and thats alright but I would definitely NOT recommend this for a romantic get away (i wouldn't have any encounters with my partner in a place like that!) nor with children as it isn't exactly safe (we were on the second floor). We were initially not given a lock to lock our room and we had to request for this and it was literally, a big lock which you latch onto the wood. The hotel restaurant lacks ambiance/atmosphere as it is playing loungy soapy music which makes you want to cut your wrists.
To make things worse, you expect to get away with a cheap price when you have such basic accommodation, but its pricey for what you get!
On a positive note however, the staff were absolutely lovely, the food was decent and the walk to the beach was less than 2 minutes.
Overall, stay here if you are comfortable with basic accommodations. We left after 1 night (we would've left sooner but felt guilty towards the staff) and immediately checked out when we woke up to go to Amata which we loved tremendously (see my review on Amata).
