I have been a tad remiss in my reviews - this was actually from February 2013, and I have been meaning to catch up, but this place deserves a review.
The transfer from the airport is on a pre-war US truck - beautiful condition, and bearing the "Automobile Association of Burma" badge proudly on the bumper! The trip is quite short - you can actually see the runway up the coast from the beach, but the planes are small and infrequent, so they don't bother you at all.
When booking - pay the extra and go for beach front. You get a very nice room with huge windows looking straight out over the mostly deserted beach. The rooms are raised, so you have your own sunbeds on your little bit of lawn outside your room, or you can take the half-dozen steps down onto the beach. When we were there, it was lovely and peaceful, so the beaches were pretty well empty.
The food is nice, reasonable choice at breakfast, and they do meals throughout the day. We ate in the first day, but after that explored the small restaurants about five minutes walk on the other side of the road - good value, good food, and fish freshly caught that day.
Staff are friendly and helpful, and the resort is clean and tidy.
There is a small pool, but to be honest, we didn't really use it that much - we used the sea instead as it was lovely and warm.
One note of caution - you are quite a way outside the main part of Ngapali. We met some friends who were staying in the main resort one evening, and it was a VERY long tuk-tuk ride on poor roads. But hey, it was a great experience! :)
