“Great place, the beach leaves a little to be desired.”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

Ngwe Saung beach is a nice enough place, but as always, when someone tells you about a "great beach" you have to temper your expectations. "Great beach" can mean so many things to so many people. Ngwe Saung is not a pristine, white sand, clear water beach that you will find in some other parts of the world, however it is passable. Personally I like secluded, quiet beaches, and this does provide the latter. The 20 or so, relatively small "resorts", guesthouses and hotels have to generate their own power. The power grid has not been extended down the coast that far, and this, I would assume makes this beach a little less populated. I also assume since you are considering Ngwe Saung as a destination you probably have some level of experience with Myanmar in general, but just for grins, I will say that Ngwe Saung is not a party place. The little village closes down almost completely around 9-930pm, and the same can be said, for the most part, at Eskala.

Eskala was recently opened when we were there. The facility and grounds were nice and the accommodations were comfortable. We were there at the peak of the dry season, so it was hot, but the pool was great during the day and the air conditioning did a fine job to keep us cool at night. The aircon was only powered from 6pm until around 8am. This made sleeping in late difficult as the room heated up by 9pm. For me, this wasn't a deal breaker as it's Myanmar and you are probably going to bed a decent time anyway!

The general manager was very kind and gave myself and my travel partners some advice for places to stay on the rest of our journey throughout Myanmar. I'm not sure we took him up on any of his suggestions as we weren't really looking for high end accommodation for the rest of the trip, but the effort was appreciated and it was nice to speak with him.

I suggest to anyone that is considering Ngwe Saung, to not book accommodation in advance (assuming you have a car). After a lot of research and calling, we decided to just wing it, and we found lower rates at the resorts themselves. Not to mention that we didn't even find many of the places that exist there at all, online. Just go and shop around. It doesn't take a long time as all of the "resorts", hotels, and guesthouses are basically next to one another and I have to believe, will have availability. We were there during the water festival, when many people around SE Asia have holiday, and some of the places were totally booked, but it wasn't that difficult to find a room. We chose Eskala, because it seemed pretty nice and a little cheaper than the other nice places on the beach. I think we made the right choice.

Room Tip: There are around 4 tiers of rooms at Eskala. I can't remember what exactly they are called, but...

A nice place with friendly staff. Remarkable guest safety procedure with competent life guards. Located in the middle of hotel zone within walking distance from restaurants and shops. However, it was launched just 4 months ago and only in the halfway to called a resort.
