        One of the best beach holidays ever”

        If you haven't been to Ngapali Beach, Myanmar, you should definitely go. It's beautiful and not as touristy as many beach destinations and the Burmese are extremely thoughtful and gracious. And if you're a value-conscious traveler like we are, you'll love the Rivertop Lodge. The rates were substantially less than those resorts located directly on the beach, but it's only a 1 minute walk to the beach from the Rivertop Lodge and its facilities are immaculate. The staff is very helpful and friendly, there's a beautiful pool, and the on-site restaurant serves delicious authentic Burmese/Rakhine cuisine, as well as some of our American favorites. The concierge was extremely helpful and booked two of the best snorkeling trips we've ever been on. The listing said the Rivertop Lodge was a 3-star but it was actually more like a 4- to 4.5-star resort. We loved it! When we return to Ngapali Beach we will definitely be staying at the Rivertop Lodge.

        Great option for almost lowest price in Ngapali”

        location, room, service

        It was very nice to stay at Rivertop Lodge as awesome beach resort is combined with comfortable hotel with fair price and outstanding service. The stuff was very helpful and we had a very great time staying there. We took boat trip at hotel reception and had transfer to the airport arranged. The room was very clean and comfortable with all necessary stuff in there. It is only 1 minute walk to the best beach we have ever been in our lives. Comparing to other hotels located right at the seashore you pay 2 or even 3 times less and actually get the same. You can have a dinner at any time at the hotel for the price equal to restaurants nearby and all meals we had were very tasty. Recommend this place to everybody who would like to save money visiting Ngapali.

        Good value for money”

        Value for money, staff, lodgings

        Rivertop isn't on Ngapali beach but can be accessed by a very short 1-2 minute walk, so you barely notice the difference. This also means that the price of staying at the Lodge is a fraction of staying at one of the big beach-side resorts. The Lodge provides a much quieter alternative to those who don't like the big, expensive and very commercial, resort-experience, but still provides lovely, clean and comfortable accommodation and excellent service. The friendly staff provide airport pick-up and drop-off service. The breakfast provided both local and continental options, sometimes set-out as a buffet and other times made fresh to order. Ate in the restaurant once and was pleased with the meal. The Lodge is a bit far from some of the more highly rated local restaurants, but bikes and e-bikes can be hired to access these other food options more easily.

        Wonderful stay at Ngapali beach”

        For Ngapali beach, Rivertop Lodge definitely is great value for money. The rooms are very spacious and clean, and the breakfast is excellent. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive. To get to the beach you only need to cross the road (just 100 metres walk), where you'll find great sun loungers and umbrellas. We were happy we stayed here!

        We stayed at Rivertop Lodge for 2 nights and had an amazing time. Clean rooms with nice beds and 3 (Western) movie channels, amazing service and great food. It's located on only a few minutes (walking) from the beach, and is priced much more friendly than other accommodation in Ngapali. Highly recommended!
