This traditionally built resort is – in every respect – extraordinarily super. The bungalows are tastefully furnished and luxurious, with a terrace looking on to the beautiful views of the sea. One could search for shells on the long, deserted, beautiful beach and totally relax

If you mean the village by Ngapali Beach where the restaurants are, then it is 4 miles. The hotel does have bicycles you can use and a few of these are motorised. However, the first two miles (up to the airport) it is just a narrow, dirt road and incredibly bumpy even in the hotel's 4x4. Once you have reached the airport, the road improves but the drivers in Myanmar are terrifying and unpredictable. They sound their horns as they come up behind you, to let you know they are there, and then pass incredibly close to you. We were at Amara Ocean Resort for 9 nights and only once did we take visit Ngapali Beach which cost us US$30 return. We ate at a little restaurant on the beach and quite honestly we could have been at any resort in the Mediterranean - with beach sellers and sun burnt tourists. As you can hear - we were not impressed. The Amara is located on a very long, deserted beach and there were usually no more than about 6 or 8 people on it at any one time. The only advantage from that trip was that we were able to buy the excellent local gin (Royal) at US$1.5 (about £1) for a 70cl bottle. The tonic was £1 per can. If you like to have a number of drinks on your terrace there are a number of little shops at the airport just across the road from where you board your mini-bus for the hotel - but you have to be quick before the bus leaves! We found the menu at the Amara to be extensive enough for us to have something different every day. The portions are big and we usually just had a starter and a pudding - although there many lovely dishes both local and international (these tend to be more expensive). After the first couple of days, when we thought we should be doing something, we slipped into the luxury of doing absolutely nothing - except eating, drinking on our veranda and swimming in the warm sea - heaven!

Hi Johanna, we were there for four nights/ five days. We on average had a light lunch, plenty of pool side drinks and a nice dinner (but nothing over the top, ie champagne, lobster etc) and averaged about to $125 a day for two. That did include a 5hr fishing excursion and some treatments at the spa. The place isn't overly expensive but at the same time not cheap. I don't think you will find many beaches in South East Asia that are quite so untouched. When we were there, there were only 11 guests sharing a 2 mile beach. I hope that helps. Ps only down side is the service can be a bit slow, but the staff our very friendly.
