Ngapali BayVillas & Spa
Ngapali Bay Villas & Spa is perfectly situated on an unspoiled natural beach at the western seaboard of the Rakhine State in Myanmar. Renowned for its beauty, Ngapali Bay offers a warm tropical climate throughout the year. Escape to paradise on the soft white sands of our vast beach facing the bay of Bengal, with dark green forested hills as a patchwork backdrop of paddy fields.
We are a short 45-minute flight from Yangon and 9 km (6 mile) drive by private transfer from Thandwe Airport to Mya Pyin Village. An alternate route to the resort includes not only a long day drive on high forested roads of the Arakan Mountains, at 3100 m (10,000 ft) above sea level but, also, an intimate glance into the daily life of isolated villages as well as unexpected encounters with wild elephants in their natural habitat.
The resort is a masterpiece of Myanmar art and culture. Decorated by Interior Designer, U Kyaw Sein and designed by British Architect, David Wordsworth, our thatched roof, high-ceiling Villas are crafted with local white marble, teak wood and sandstone from Yesagyo, Pakkoku District in central Myanmar. The walls exhibit one of a kind pieces from the late U Khin Maung Yin, one of the most influential Burmese modern artists, in addition to antique artifacts collected throughout the many regions of Myanmar.
We offer a wide range of activities and adventures, including private boat trips to Pearl Island, snorkeling, e-bicycle rentals for exploring nearby villages, a excursions to Kin Pun Chone Village where the Elephant camp is located, visits to local art galleries and Thandwe Market or just spend the day sunbathing on your private lounge with beach side service from Tamarind Restaurant. Our Executive Chef will tempt your taste buds with traditional Rakhine fare. The a la carte menu provides seasonal local produce and seafood with a fusion of Myanmar dishes with Western cuisine. Be sure to enjoy our unique wine collection from around the World, or try one of our handcrafted cocktails as you marvel the magnificent beachfront sunset.
