Gorgeous location, a worthy splurge”
This hotel is on a beautiful cove north of the airport, and feels like a world away from all the resorts on the big beach south of the airport. It felt like we had the beach all to ourselves, and found a good snorkel spot just around a rocky peninsula to the south of the resort. Our "room" was actually its own building - it was HUGE and beautifully decorated. We had one of the cabins in the 2nd row, and still had a great view of the water due to how they've staggered the buildings. Food was excellent. Live music one night. Worth a splurge if you want a special place to stay.

Wonderful resort”
This place is simply beautiful. The design of the bungalows, the location at the private, long, sandy beach, and the whole atmosphere are fantastic. We loved our stay there. The only thing that could be a bummer for some is the lack of alternative eating options as the resort is a bit out of the way. However, we organized bikes through the very friendly hotel staff and went around on our own - Just lovely.

The perfect end of our honeymoon trip”
If you are coming to stay at Amara Ocean Resort in order to be on the beach and romantic you will never be disappointed. We stayed for 2 nights at the end of our honeymoon trip of 10 days in Myanmar and had a marvelous experience at Ngapali. Amara Resort has private beach away from crowded beach area and bonus each room has their own beach chairs. They upgraded us to the most beautiful bungalow (Beach - Front) and arranged a nice room with tasty cake to surprise us. These are amazing, simply amazing. As expected the room is clean, the ground is well kept. The pool is great - big, fun and great views of the ocean. We used the free bicycles to ride into town, but again, after traveling through Myanmar we had enough of exploring and truly enjoyed the resort. Hotel provides wonderful breakfast buffet and especially the homemade banana cake. Staffs are caring and very helpful. They helped us to book domestic flight tickets as we couldn't book them online. Only drawback is the restaurant on the premises, perhaps the most expensive but not professional with service and menu. Poor staff training and management. Appetizers were served after the main food and they forgot about our bottle of wine. We had to ask for serving wine at least 3 times while all the staffs were laughing and having fun with each other. It was a bit disappointing.

There are very few options for eating nearby, so you are limited to the hotel restaurant and one beach side option. Both are fabulous so it's not much of an issue.

Exquisite Villas, Staff and Beach”
The architecture of each villa is stunning. I have traveled the world and these villas are astonishing in their detail. Ceilings, walls and floors all perfectly maintained teak. We actually preferred the ocean view villas over the beachfront villas because they are elevated and felt more private. The sand is the finest white grain, and the ocean is clear and warm with no heavy surf - perfect for wading, swimming. The hotel staff are heartbreakingly gentle and sweet. The General Manager, Myint Htoo was helpful, friendly and discrete. The food is a bit expensive but that is to be expected with this kind of isolation. The PERFECT place to honeymoon or end a Myanmar trip. Lovely in every way!

Beautiful resort”
Beautiful luxury beach resort with everything you could want from it. A very special place. Only negative points are that the food, though excellent, is expensive with few simpler/value options. The breakfast menu is overcomplicated, particularly when communication with staff needs to be simple because of their basic english.

More than we could have hoped for!”
Staff, luxury accomodation and the grounds/beach
Amara was amazing. We were incredibly impressed with the professionalism of the staff and touched by their genuine care. Our toddler got sick as we arrived and every member of staff went out of there way to help us in any way they could... And when she got better many couldn't wait to play with her giving my husband and I relaxed meals in peace. This resort stands head and shoulders above others for their grounds, private/individual/romantic cabins, stunning location, staff and their Foundation program (they aim to employ local staff and give a portion of the profits to their mobile/boat clinic assisting communities in the delta). They were amazing at meeting our every need with special meals for our daughter, a cot, bedding, etc being no trouble to them at all. It is a bit isolated out of the Beach strip but after visiting that area we were ver glad of the more secluded location. We couldn't recomed Amara more!!! NB: be aware there is also the Amata in Ngapali Beach but this is a very different hotel and we are recommending the AMARA Ocean Resort.

Nice Rooms, Bad and Expensive Food”
Rooms, beach
Bumpy, difficult road to town so your confined to resort for food and amenities or spending $30 on a car to get away. Staff is lovely but do not know English well enough to understand questions. Bar, spa and restaurant not 5 star. Poor quality food for a lot of money. Bizarre management. At dinner they number tables at the restaurant and have all the seats facing the dark ocean, creates an awkward, non convivial atmosphere and would be downright embarrassing for single travelers.

Amazing beach, not-so-amazing food.”
Location, rooms
The Amara is a located on a simply stunning stretch of beach, the location could not be more beautiful. The rooms are tasteful and well appointed with big decks. Our stay there was diminished by the mediocre food. Also, while the staff were very kind and seemed to sincerely want to be helpful, they did not have the training or the English skills that we would have expected at resort at this price point. It is important to know that this resort is 45 minutes from the restaurants and other hotels in Ngapali so unless you're willing to sit in a car for an hour and half (and the road that the Amara is on is a very poorly maintainted dirt road that only allows a car to travel at a snail's pace), you are going to be eating all meals at the Amara. The food isn't terrible, but it was the worst food we ate any of the hotels we stayed at in Myanmar. Also, the staff was not well trained. The bartender who was making our $8 drinks (very expensive for Myanmar) was unable to make drinks to our specification because of lacking English skills. And we were asking for simple things. Also, the staff working at the front desk gave us inaccurate information about the distances to town and Ngapali, making it seem like an impossible bike ride (it is not....though not something I would undertake in the dark). I would certainly consider staying at the Amara again as the location is so stunning and I loved my cabana, but the hotel should improve their food and train the staff better so the service and the meals are up to par with the location and the price point.

unspoilt location, great rooms, beautiful sunsets
This is a great hotel, badly let down by it's below par restaurant. As it is a distance from anywhere else, you can only really eat there. Otherwise, the staff are great and friendly and the hotel is beautiful. If there was the slightest improvement in the restaurant, I would go for a return trip.

Romantic Getaway”
The beach, the spa, the pool
My husband and I had a lovely time on our 10 year anniversary. We had been travelling in Rahkine state previously. Staying at Amara was our time to relax and recover from some intense travelling. We booked an ocean front villa. The villas are up off the beach on hard land, but the beach is so close we just ran from our room into the waves. This resort seems to be the only resort on this particular beach and we arrived on the season opening (they close during the summer). We went from the beach to the restaurant to the pool to the spa to our room to the beach. Then we woke up the next day and did it all again. If you want a relaxing getaway - Amara Ocean Resort is a great choice.

View, service, accommodation
We had a fantastic stay at Amara. Initially booked two nights but quickly added another two. Everything is arranged with a genuine smile focused on ensuring the guests have a great stay. The welcome at the airport, the personal greeting by the GM, the orientation by the staff etc etc provides a warm welcome. Food is good and reasonably priced,we preferred the traditional menu. Breakfast offers abundant choice including local and western. he SPA is professional and great value for money, especially the package deals ( one day to multi day options). Beach is very quiet with white sand. The bungalow/ villa is spacious, traditional style but modern. We stayed at the second row which to us was fine as we still had excellent views of the beach and sunset. Bicycles available for free although the nearby town (a few houses) can easily be done by foot. It seems that both the couples as well as the families staying all were enjoying themselves. Don't forget to order the fresh coconut prepared by the kind staff.
