“Great Place to Unwind”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

I loved this place. After the hustle and bustle of constant travelling around wonderful Myanmar, this was the perfect place for 3 days R&R. It started really when when we were picked up from the airport by a transfer and welcomed to the hotel by the very friendly and attentive staff. Our room was in the white block at the back which was fine but not as nice as the beach bungalows, they were fully booked when we made our reservation. The room, although a bit of distance back from the beach was lovely and perfectly adequate. The surroundings of the hotel are gorgeous, the pool is lovely and you get a great view of the sunset from the sun loungers by the beach. We didn't eat at the hotel and chose to go to the numerous beach bars nearby. I cannot rate these highly enough, especially the one with the green hut and table & Chairs. A very enjoyable stay in a stunning location!

Room Tip: We we in the white block at the back whihc is fine but the bungalows closer to the beach are a real...

I have, during more than 40 years, been travelling in asia. In 1983 I visited Burma, or Myanmar, for the first time. It is a fantastic country and once you have been ther, you always want to go back.
I have made another seven trips to Myanmar during the last ten years. I have seen all places that is worth to see, but its always something new coming that you have to wisit. Just fantastic !
During the last five years, we have also find a fantastic hotel in Ngpali, just on the beach. Ww want to rank the hotell four starwith a plus.
However, the manager with all her staff, we rank to five star. They are all so nice and helpful and you do not have to worry about anything.
So, do not hesitate when looking for a hotel in Ngpali, Thandee beach hotel is gantastic ,

Room Tip: All rooms are very nice, but try to get one room in the first second or third line from the beach.

Beautiful setting on superb Ngapali beach. We were just winding down after a 2 week tour of magnificent Myanmar and the choice of this hotel, via Trailfinders and Exotissimo was just perfect and truly relaxing. It has a spa where you can indulge your tired feet and body and mind. All the staff were well trained and loved to get in conversation to practise their English.

Room Tip: Rooms beginning 001 are nearest the beach and as numbers go up they go further back, but all are qui...

This hotel was very well maintained with great gardens and clean very pleasant rooms. It has a professional and established vibe compared to other hotels of a similar or higher price. I is quiet and well staffed. It was a pleasant surprise to be picked up in the charming little bus at the airport without even asking!! I wish we had stayed longer,

Room Tip: The ocean view rooms looked great but of course were more expensive. I was satisfied with my third...

Booked a delux front row room for 3 nights to finish off a whirlwind trip to discover Myanmar. Great way to finish and wind down. Rooms were large and bathroom huge. Grounds and gardens were well kept and pool lovely. Staff were helpful and friendly. Well located for food and drinks along the beach and next door to the post office/ general store / bottle shop / gifts etc. Transport was a little expensive through the hotel and if more time would have explored local options directly but little need to go too far in a car. Drinks a little expensive at hotel but sunset view was superb, breakfast was good and lots of choices . Beach was lovely - clear cool water and long stretch to walk With Lots of " beach shopping " along the way for easy last minute gifts. Pickup and drop off at airport was well organised and the bus is an attraction in itself. Will definitely go back. Reasonably priced compared to many places.

Room Tip: Beach front was good but any room is very close to beach

Because of the crazy rates for hotels in Myanmar, we were forced to go above our usual budget for trips to the far-east. However, the 120$/ night we spend here were very happily given: we had value for our money: prime location in the middle of one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen, well trimmed gardens, large rooms with wooden floors, a large choice for breakfast, very friendly and helpfull staff... Comfortable beach-beds to read and rest.
The lady-manager does a terrific job, the result is very positive!
For dinner, you just had to walk along the beach and pick any restaurant, they were all nice.
Advice: don't go to Myanmar now ( to much tourisme and not enough rooms ) but don't wait to long either because maybe Ngapali will not be able hold its gentle touch
when there are to many tourists.

We stayed in the Thande Beach for 9 nights and just loved the place. You get a great welcome at the airport on arrival and big help on departure, they bring your bags to the lovely special bus. We had a fantastic room 3rd row upstairs but could see the sea also.The bungalow has everything you need and a little bit more. It is nice big clean room and very well equipped bathroom (only negative is that wifi is only available in the lobby area). we had our own terrace with sun beds and even a smart automatic foot-wash to avoid carrying sand into the room.All the staff are very helpful and very friendly and attentive. Breakfast was buffet style on the terrace with a great view.. Walking distance along the beach to the local village, or you can rent a bicycle. .All the staff are very helpful and very friendly and attentive. .Since we were staying there for 9 N we got a diner offered by the Manager plus a massage, we did have some massages as well, Pedicure, and they were very professional. We had some massages on the beach but they were NOT professional.
The beach is kept very clean you can do long walks along the beach, and there are no noisy motorized activities, only some friendly fishermen with their nets and women’s offering you good fresh fruit from their basket balanced on their head. We recommend this place to everyone. Try it and you will LOVE IT
they also organize trips around the island and give all possible informations.
I agree with post of Betty Sue: very annoying the people blocking sun chairs - I think it is an
european habit of doing so....
If you have time,visit the school of Mamma Sue at Linthar village see http://www.myanmar-aid.org/home.htm (you can go there by bike) i was very much impressed. The school visits are any day except Monday from 7-9am or 4-7 pm follow the sign yoma cherry lodge.
