Just a 30-minute drive from Thandwe Airport, Amata is a sleekly designed resort with excellent dining options on the pretty beach of Ngapali.
The 87 bungalows and cabanas are made of teak wood, bamboo and rattan, effortlessly fitting in with the beautiful sandy shores of Ngapali Beach. There are four room types, some with wonderful sea views, others set in the gardens shrouded by thick vegetation for a private retreat.
From fresh seafood to traditional Burmese curries, there’s a selection of eastern and western dishes on offer at the Dwarawaddy Restaurant, which also boasts a sushi bar. After dinner, you can head to the Kissapanadi lounge and bar for a cold beer or cocktail to leisurely draw the day to a close.
After you’ve exhausted the activities on offer – which range from golfing at the nearby nine-hole course to kayaking off Ngapali Beach – you can head to Amata Spa for a variety of local and international massages and treatments: the ideal accompaniment to a chilled beach escape in Myanmar.
