    Best place to stay! Had an amazing time! ”
    The management and service is excellent. They think about details from interior to service which truly makes this place unique in Myanmar. The breakfast is great and the food in general good (for Myanmar excellent ;-). The pool, sandy beach and the whole setting with lots of palm trees and beautiful cottages is just perfect! Would definitely stay here again! Also walked along the beach and Sandoway looked the best! The cottages are lovely, the deluxe rooms too but those can get little noisy in the morning. As a side note: at this part of the beach, the beach is nice and sandy, other parts of nagapali beach can be rocky.

    Beautiful property ”
    Very nice location. Beautiful ground and facilities. Polite and helpful staff. Good breakfast. Well managed resort. However, negatively the euro management creates less layback atmosphere and uptight feel. I didn’t feel that I was in Myanmar. More like a another typical resort in Phuket or Bali. All beach chairs are reserved according to room number. All basic rooms are assigned in second section. Charges on quite everything including sports equipment rentals and shuttle service.

    Beautiful setting”
    We had a wonderful stay at Sandoway - the staff were all extremely friendly and helpful (though service was at times slow in the restaurant). The setting on Ngapali beach is beautiful, the spa was divine and the food delicious. We loved having our own little cottage though it was a little dated and not quite as comfortable as it could be. It was also not ideal for children with open stairs. The pool looked amazing but was too cold to use much (and certainly too cold for our infant which was a shame). The food was also very limited by the pool and beach. I would wholeheartedly recommend this resort to couples looking for a romantic getaway but it is perhaps not ideal for young families.

    The resort is absolutely stunning- SE Asia's finest. The staff were extremely personable and skilled at their work and no attention to detail was spared. Several family-run restaurants in walking distance where we feasted on grilled seafood (for the times when you want to deviate from the pricy but delicious pasta at the resort). We just loved staying at the Sandoway!

    Superb hotel on a fantastic beach, only downside is food”
    The hotel itself, the facilities, location staff, etc. is just great! Perfect place to unwind, top-notch. A la carte menu, though, leaves a lot of space for improvement. Food in the restaurant did not strike as value for money, esp. asian menu. Luckily, lots of local seafood restaurants are scattered around on the beach (1.5km walk) or on the other side of the road just behind the hotel. All in all, a very positive experience.

    The villa we stayed in was superb, beautiful traditional styling, good atmosphere and great position”
    Hotel is very nice and staff is great, helpful and friendly. On easy walking distance there are a number of small, family restaurants that we enjoyed using for dinner. On the down side, Ngapali seems to have a real problem with their waste management, including the nearby fishing village that dumps much of their trash directly on the beach. As a result the sea is littered with plastics and trash during high tide as well as that the beach becomes littered. I guess a problem that requires long term solutions. The hotel an maybe help a bit by posting trash baskets outside of each villa and promtion of a clean sea and beach!

    Very nice resort”
    We stayed three nights in Sandoway in a beachfront villa as part of our honeymoon. We had a great time, we particularly appreciated the location, the architecture of the hotel that is local and charming with a lot of wood and nice lighting, beautiful landscaping, and above all the quality of the food and the beautiful restaurant terrace. I feel for the price paid some facilities such as the bikes and watersports could be free and guests would not be required to pay a security deposit and have to go to the reception to do any paperwork. Music system in the room is obsolete. But apart from these very little details the experience is very nice.

    Great for a couple on honeymoon!”
    The up side: The room is spacious and clean. The breakfast is tasty and mostly western. I loved the croissant au chocolat, that's delicious!!!! The hotel has a library and a movie theater. The swimming pool is clean and beautiful. Good price for Myanmar beer bottle! It's one of the best spots of the beach! The down side: There's no TV in the room. There are no locks on the bathroom or toilet (actually no way to close it)... The toilet is downstairs from the bedroom (if you're staying for a week with small kids that wake up at night to go to the toilet it could be annoying). There isn't room service for food, only for drinks. Ice cream costs a little fortune. It's a bit difficult to order drinks while on the beach or at the pool (scarce staff). My room had an icebox instead of a fridge. And the thing that annoyed me the most was that there were no towels at the swimming pool. We have to carry our beach towels with us from the room. But, overall it was a great stay!!!

    Beautiful resort and beach ”
    A really lovely place to stay on the perfect beach where you get a dedicated parasol and loungers. The houses are comfortable, pristine clean and well furnished. Breakfast was great: lots of fruit, freshly cooked eggs and pastries. Staff are super friendly and helpful . The only downside would be the restaurant food which is hit and miss. We had a couple of OK meals and one truly awful meal: for those prices you expect it to be good. There are some OK local restaurants nearby up the road so you don't have to eat in the hotel .

    Lovely rooms, great service, beautiful setting
    Sandoway is an excellent hotel. The service is great, the rooms are beautiful - the cottages are a bit more intimate than the villas with the bed upstairs. I can't recommend it too highly. My only complaint would be that the spa is rather expensive and the quality not really on a par with the cost.

    Beach, food, hotel room
    We were met at the airport and taken to the hotel in the Sandoway bus, which was great start to our holiday. I could not fault this hotel on service, quality of rooms, staff friendliness, or location. It had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The beach was quiet - we were at the end of the season - it is true, but there can never be more than about 100 people due to the size of the hotel. We will be going back

They called a van from to the airport and only 10k chatt. My son only paid for a breakfast without extra bed. King size bed was enough for three of us. Staffs were all very friendly. Breakfast was good with served in a seat. We traveled a lot of areas and I think this resort is the best.

    The hotel is very nice. We had a cottage with sea view but not front beach. The cottage is on two floors beautifully decorated and accessorized. They clean the room two times per day. People are kind and organized. We went there in January and at this time the sea was not calm, the calm sea is more on the north part of this long beach where the sea makes a little gulf. The restaurant of the hotel is always open and the food is good. I recommend this hotel for a couple looking for European quality style perfectly mixed with traditional Burmese style.

    The Sandoway is a lovely resort , the beach is amazing, the food is great and the rooms are delightful. My only issue is I could not help feeling like I was being taken advantage of, everything seemed to cost extra- for example there was no free water at the pool, their transfer was $9 a person to the airport when a taxi is $9 for the car and the mountain bikes where $7. I realise this is a prefence thing but the charging for every small extra thing removes the feeling of relaxation for me! Purhaps just charge a small amount more for your rooms and drop the extra bits

    A great place for families, shady kids pool connected to the large pool, beautiful landscape and stunning view from breakfast place. I find it a little strange they don't provide toothbrush and toothpaste, no room service except beach service between 11am to 5pm. On top of that no TV but there is a cinema where nobody would bother to go. Breakfast is okay but if you are after Asian or Burmese breakfast, this is not the one. They serve very strange mont hinn khar cooked with chicken called Sandoway mont hinn khar, the first day it was served with egg noodle and on second day it was served with rice noodle. Funny thing was they tried to charge four years old for breakfast. They charge $7 per person for transportation from the airport. I think people wouldn't mind paying a little extra in their room charges if their bus service is complimentary. They tried to charge $7 for four years old too which I was not happy to pay, ended up paying half price anyway.
