This resort is approximately 15 years old, but very well kept. Located at a stunningly beautiful bay, Ngapali Beach. Quiet, not many resorts or hotels, large sand beach, very nice people and with stunningly beautiful sunsets. We had booked the best villa. With sea view and thought that would be right on the beach. Turned out to be a mistake, the beautiful villa, 120 square meters, was located on the second row, but with a (narrow) view on the sea between two first row villas. Fortunately we could change to a beach front villa for the last three nights against an USD 50 supplement per night. The restaurant is a beautifully located terrace a meter above the beach (like the villas) with a predominantly Western, Italian menu. Good food, but rather expensive for Myanmar. On the beach, 15 minutes walk to the right and left are fantastic local restaurants with great crab, prawns, lobster and other fish. Very very fresh, probably fresh from the same day, against a third of the price of the resort. Outside the resort, close to the entrance are another four restaurants with great food for the same very reasonable prices. The local wine (Mountainwhite), both white and red, is quite good (USD 15 per bottle in the local restaurants). With a bottle of wine and fantastically prepared king prawns sets you back for not more than USD 23-24 for dinner for two. Plus a fruit dessert free of charge.
The breakfast in Sandoway Resort is really good. This time an old fashioned breakfast ordered as per the menu. Great fruit, well prepared eggs and/or a Myanmar rice breakfast.
Very good staff.
Again the cottages and villas, 59 in total, are located in a beautifully kept tropical garden.
The swimming pool is overflow and quite large and beautiful.
A great stay.
