I can't say how amazing this property is. From the second we walked in to the second we were dropped off at the airport we were treated like we were the most exclusive of guests; and from what I could see this is how they treat everyone who stays at the Amara Beach Resort. After being in Myanmar for a... More

Amara Ocean Resort want to be one of the most luxury choice of Ngapali beach. Very near to the airport (10 minutes by car) and to Thandwe village (30 minutes by car) is the last resort and it's the gate to the part of Ngapali beach. Sea is awesome, beach well furnished with beds, table and palm umbrella to avoid... More

We stayed at the Amara at the front end of a 19 day trip to Myanmar. This was the third stay in the Ngapali , and the Amara is the top spot in the entire beach area. The setting is absolutely fantastic, one of the nicest and least populated beaches in the world. The rooms and service at Amara are... More

I hesitate to extoll the virtues of this wonderful beach front property because I don't want it to be ruined by too many visitors but because there are currently just 28 units this is unlikely. The individual bungalows are large with fans , air conditioning , mosquito nets , large verandas with sun loungers and towels but no TV or... More

We stayed for 3 nights in January at the end of our journey around Myanmar for some Rest and Relaxation before returning home. Highlights: -The Beach Bungalows were pristine, roomy and luxurious. Beautifully designed and perfectly maintained. Loved the sliding louvered windows and doors that allowed for natural ocean breezes. Wow! -The bed was the most comfortable (soft and luxurious)...

Driving to the Amara Ocean Resort in Ngapali (pronounced Napoli) along the one road from the Airport feels like stepping way back in time. The area has the feel of a remote, almost deserted Island. Arrival is to a beautiful and romantic new hotel with open teak pavilions and teak bungalows, all right smack on the beach. The General Manager... More

The ultimate romantic resort. Well decorated rooms, unspoiled beach, romantic dinner settings! We had a lot of fun with the staff who organized a water fight against the other resort's staff in the hotel's truck in Ngapali.

This resort exceeded all our expectations and wishes for a relaxed end of our travels exploring Myanmar. The beach villa provided a private haven and all the luxury you want - a private access to the beach, a wooden porch big enough to move your deckchair following the sun and enjoy a sunset in first row. The resort is expertly... More
