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 few days and not really enjoying the food we came here and ate so much because the food was phenomenal! The fresh seafood was some of the best I have tried, and they have a huge staff in their kitchen dedicated to making sure that the food not only tastes fantastic but is presented beautifully as well. The General Manager of the resort was often in the restaurant saying hello to guests and ensuring that their stay was going well, which I thought was so unique and welcomed as he was a very kind and charming man. The beach at this property is pretty much private, there were only a few people from the resort on it while we were there, and you don't see any other tourists because all of the other resorts on the Ngapali Coast are actually further down the coastline. So it's like a little secluded piece of paradise. If you are not a fan of the beach and the sand, they have a beautiful pool and ample space for lounging. The rooms are fabulous as well - they are individual beach "cottages" that are made of beautiful wood and all of them have a beautiful view of the ocean. We only stopped here for 3 nights as we were moving around a lot on our trip, but I'm already planning to go back for a longer stay!
