We were recommended this resort after our initial choice accommodation was fully booked for the dates of our intended travel. We had no regrets on our decision to stay at PVR instead. It turned out to be the most serene and relaxing leg of our trip.
Upon arrival at Ngapali airport, we were greeting by old-school buses that would ferry the guest to their respective resorts. PVR turned out to be situated further from the airport and near one of the fishing villages. It was a good location as it was not too near the main shop areas but still accessible by bicycle, foot or vehicle to other parts.
The staff at the resort were friendly and most spoke good English, which made communication easier and we enjoyed the conversations, especially with the general manager who attended guests’ requests and queries promptly. The villas were well designed and attention was paid to it being a beach resort. The best part of it was having a lovely unspoiled beach right in front of the villas. The place was still relatively free from touts when we visited in Jan 2012 and staff were discreet in going about their duties, so we basically had many peaceful hours lounging on the deck chairs, sun-tanning or reading. We tried a snorkel/boat trip arranged by the hotel and enjoyed just spending idyllic time on a nearby sand island, enjoying tropical drinks.
We have to make special mention of the restaurant on a connecting islet to the resort. It is an experience walking on the sandbank to reach the restaurant when the tide is low and wading back after a satisfying meal. The menu was rather extensive and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the sunsets there almost every evening.
All in all, we had a lovely and very relaxing time at PVR in Ngapali, free from the crowds and hassle of life. Truly a blissful leg and highlight of our trip to Myanmar.
