Ngapali Bay Villa & Spa, Thandwe

Amble from your thatched villa, through perfumed gardens with tranquil lotus pools, to Ngapali Bay’s outstanding beach, and you will feel you have arrived at some sort of ultimate. Of course, Myanmar has long been famed for its beautiful beaches, but put Ngapali Bay on the itinerary of your luxury, tailor-made holiday and you will be well rewarded. Not just with soft sand tumbling gently into a warm, blue sea, but with a hotel that is a symphony of lush garden walkways, white marble, teak floors, airy interiors with high wooden ceilings, bathrooms with copper basins and rooms decorated with individual, hand-created pieces of art.

Ngapali Bay is also beautiful beneath the surface; its people express genuine warmth in their welcome, and sincerity in their wish to please.
