We arrived in Ngapali at the end of our visit to Myamar for a 5 night relaxation on the beach. We arrived without a booking and a budget that was below most of the luxury resorts along the beach. Because of the road construction we decided to try to negotiate at several of these resorts for a deal using one of the roadside rooms (knowing we would be on the beach all day). The reception staff were immediately amenable to negotiation in the friendliest smiling way possible and offered us a garden room (adjacent to the road) at 100$ a night. Compared to the other resorts this was amazing and during peak season. Yes the road noise and construction was very loud especially in the bathroom but we are early risers, out all day and the road was quiet at night.
The room and bathroom were spacious and well equipped. The bed was comfortable and the room was serviced twice daily with wonderful floral designs left on the bed. The breakfast was outstanding and in a lovely setting in the beachside restaurant with super smiling helpful staff. As another reviewer mentioned the pool is rather strange as it is in the middle of the restaurant with no lounging area. However with the wonderful calm sea just steps way from the hotel I for one was not going to use the pool. There are plenty of sun loungers and shade umbrellas on the beach and wonderful smiling non hassle hawkers passing selling fruits and coconut juice. The gardens are well landscaped and i loved the vintage car and bus sitting in the hotel entrance. There are plenty of restaurants both along the road and on the beach. The beach itself is superb and I definitely plan to return.
