Neat bungalows close to the beach”
Fantastic value for money at this quaint beach resort. The manager speaks good English and is very helpful and honest. The bungalows are nice, with a huge bed, a patio and hammocks outside. Electricity doesn't work 6am to 6pm. Laundry service and bike rental are available and affordable. Breakfast is nice. No problems except for the millions of mosquitos that even get through the mosquito net, so bring repellent if staying here.

Great location , close to the beach, Seaview from our cabin, delightful freshly cooked breakfast”
Great place tucked away from the township, between the forest and the beach. Very private. Staff is good, no wifi. They also rent motorbike and bicycles cheaper than in the township. They can also book your bus tickets to go back to Yangon. Loved the breakfast

Basic but clean.”
The rooms are Basic but perfectly adequate. How long do you plan spending in your room with a beautiful beach 3 minutes walk away. The staff are friendly and helpful and speak enough English to help you out with getting around, finding places to eat etc. Each room has a small, shaded balcony so you can Enjoy sea views while escaping the Direct sun. Typically for Ngwe Saung, there's Only electricity from 6 pm to 6am so it's Worth taking a Power bank for additional charge for phones etc. Lovely place to relax forva few days.

Lovely bungalows, kind staff and great view!”
We loved our stay at Forest home. Bungalows are spacious and you have a nice size porch to sit on and enjoy amazing sunsets. Family who owns the place is very kind and helpful, it really felt like staying with our own family. They have very friendly doggy that slept on our porch most of the nights and wiggled his tail the moment we returned from the beach :). Beach is very close; max 10min walk, and that's if you walk very slow, you can really see the sea from your porch. Breakfast was nice and filling, and for dinner, there is a seafood restaurant nearby and some 15min walk there is a cafe and restaurant with fire show every night. The electricity is only available through generator from 6pm til 6am, but that is actually wonderful if you want to "disconnect" a bit. Overall, I would stay again here, and I regret not booking more nights! I really hope this place survives in the sea of big resorts that are poping around it.... it is really a rough gem :).

Extremely basic. The toilets were smelly. Not the usual Myanmar friendliness ( except for one young guy who was friendly) and several guests were badly bitten by ants. Needs lots of improvement. Lovely view and the price are the only benifits

Nice Place to stay. Good Value.”
Stayed in a really nice bamboo bungalow. It's basic, with a cold water shower, fan and electricity from 6pm till 6am only. But you don't need anything more! The quiet beach is less than a 5min walk away and the village is a K1000 motorbike taxi away. Really enjoyed staying here!

Great option price/quality if you want to avoid state-sponsored resorts”
The bungalows are simple but clean, provided with a mosquito net and a fan. Electricity only during the night, but this is practically everywhere in Ngwe Saung. It's a 2min walk to the beach, and if you have one of the higher bungalows, you can even see the ocean. Breakfast on your own terrass is simply amazing. The resort is a family run bussiness, kept by locals. You can see that they are struggling to keep up with the big fancy resorts sprouting up everywhere like mushrooms, who have a "different kind of funding" to say it subtle. It's important to support these local businesses before the entire town of Ngwe Saung ends up in the hands of big money. So yes, the Forest Home has some flaws, but at least you are supporting the right cause and get a great stay in return.

Perfect, Clean, Inexpensive Bungalow!”
Can't beat it for the price-- I mean seriously, what a screaming deal! The perfectly-sized bungalow is made from wood and bamboo, has a small table and a foam mattress bed with mosquito net. Bathroom has a western style toilet and a shower, everything you'd need for a comfortable stay. During the daytime, they cut the generators, and you'll be served hot breakfast as soon as you walk out to sit on your front porch (usually noodle stir fry with an over-easy egg, fresh fruit, toast, and plenty of tea). After soaking up some great breakfast and beautiful palm views, you can stumble 5 minutes' walk to the beach. It's situated directly in between Ngwe Saung proper (restaurants and shops) and the small town behind the Yacht Club. You can do fine on foot wandering to beaches or the surrounding restaurants, etc., but if necessary they have motorscooters available for rent (10,000K/day), or you can snag a motorbike ride for around 1,000K to anywhere along Ngwe Saung. My wife and I absolutely loved our stay, and would come again and again. To manage expectations-- again, they cut the power during daylight hours, and you and most of your bungalow neighbors will spend a good chunk of time on the front porch relaxing. Expect to hear and interact with people from all over the World. Additionally, there's no water heaters for the shower-- so expect a refreshing cool rinse when needed. Wasn't a problem for us, but to some it might come as a surprise! Recommended to adventurers without hesitation!

we got one of the new generation bungalows which was big and clean, although you have to ask if you want yours to be cleaned during your stay. staff is friendly but a bit difficult to reach. as for most budget options in the area: no wifi, no hot shower, electricity from 6pm to 6am
