Amara Ocean Resort, Thandwe |The Ultimate Travel Co

Once you’ve seen the golden beach, fringing the irresistible Indian Ocean, there’ll be no question of missing out on some prolonged swimming and sun worshipping sessions.

But be warned, put Amara Ocean Resort on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Myanmar and you’ll have some tough decisions to face. Will you spend the morning stretched out on the soft sandy beach, or beside the pool with a coffee or chilled beer? Will you visit the mangrove river, or go island-hopping by boat? Or will you go fishing for barracuda and tuna? Will you hike or bike? Will you play golf, or take to the forest to watch exotic birds amidst indigenous flora?

There is, of course, an easy answer; simply extend your stay and do it all!
