Pleasant View Resort is a very nice boutique hotel right on the beach with two types of accommodations: stand alone bungalows and a two-story building with upper and lower rooms. Rooms in the two-story building share common walls. The bungalows are nicer and afford more privacy. All rooms and bungalows are steps from the beach. The materials used in decorating the rooms are simple and understated. PVR is a great place to relax. The beach is beautiful and the water is unbelievably warm. PVR is not a high-end, luxurious resort like Amata, but it's charming, clean and peaceful. This is a small hotel without a swimming pool and organized activities. If this is your idea of paradise, look no further.

The manager is very warm and helpful and seemed genuinely interested in making our stay enjoyable. Staff was also very accommodating. Housekeeping came twice a day, which was great given the proximity to the sand.

Breakfast is served in a simple outdoor dining area. There is also a restaurant on the islet nearby which is a beautiful setting. Prices seem higher than at the many restaurants that line the road. (Had great meals at Zaw II and Two Brothers. The seafood at both was tremendous. Most restaurants in Myanmar use MSG, which they call "seasoning powder". If you don't want MSG on your food, say these magic words: Hin Cho Hmont Mitened. Not sure about the exact translation, but it does the trick.)

Be sure to check out The Beach Massage, just south of Amata. A smart entrepreneur set up a thriving business offering massage under the palm trees for a very reasonable price. Great ambiance just steps from the beach, but if you go late in the day, kids play volleyball right in front of the massage stand. For a more peaceful massage, go before 4:00pm. Had wonderful Thai massage three days in a row! (Preferred Thai to Myanmar style massage.)

This is the southernmost hotel on Ngapali Beach. We were told that there are plans to develop the beach to accommodate more tourists and new hotels are in the works. Currently, PVR feels like it's separated a bit from the other hotels as one side is next to a village. You can rent bicycles from the hotel and visit the village. You can even buy fresh fish directly from the fisherman's boats and take them back to the hotel for cooking.

My only complaint is that trucks come daily to pick up the fish from the boats in the late afternoon adjacent to the hotel. They drive in circles on the beach with their motors running continuously for hours as they load up on fish.

During my run- away trip from massive flooding in Bangkok, I accidentally found a paradise on beach. No swimming pool, no luxury but PVR’s charms are from serene location, seafront bungalows, minimalist decoration, good food, super friendly staff and fluffy towels . The restaurant on an islet made my stay memorable. As requested by a lady guest, PVR held a surprising birthday celebration to her boyfriend. The manager played guitar and staff sang HPBD song. Very terrific! I was shared some BD cake as well. PVR is like love ballads calling me to listen again and again.

We loved our stay at PVR. We had a sea-view bungalow and it was great - looking great both from outside and inside: lots of wood (but not to the point where it looks gloomy), big patio, where we spent a lot of time reading, spacious room, great looking bathroom with skylights and a fresh coat of paint... There wasn't anything we didn't like!
The staff in superb - housekeeping came twice a day (!), in the evening they would spread the mosquito net over our bed making is very cozy and in the morning they would put it away. Our room was always very clean. The breakfast was plentiful and even included soup, which I appreciated. It was served in a small outdoor area that looked very romantic.
The management is great - general manager was there to help us with any issue (including playing guitar and singing Happy Birthday to my fiancee, which was very touching). The restaurant is a bit pricey so opt for Two Brothers instead (7 minute walk from the hotel). If feeling lazy - there's a local restaurant directly on the beach in direction of Amata and a cheaper restaurant in neighbouring Royal Beach motel.

The best place for everyone who likes contact with nature in human conditions. Rooms are cosy and clean . The restaurant on a lovely island offers fresh sea food every day .
The staff is helpful and very kind.

Very nice and kind people welcomes you in the best location of the Ngapali beach. A small island is the pearl of the beach. The sea is alive and full of fishes and the food is delicious. On the south side there is a fishermen village where people work and live in a simple and natural way and kids perform their happy games. There is a lot to learn and the level of "poetry" is always high!
