I wanted, as with many other travelers to Myanmar, to cap off my trip with a few days unwinding in Ngapali and the Bayview did not disappoint. Ngapali is definitely not cheap, and there are multiple budget guest house options these days probably better suited for solo travelers. But if your looking to spend a little extra money for a...

Service great, people lovely, great spot on the beach (would be better if pool was saltwater), decent breakfast. I really didn't like the rooms - very big, but dark and dreary with nothing nice about the decor. True you're out all day but I really didn't like sleeping in this room. Otherwise, I can find no fault with the service...

Dear Neev321, Thank you very much your review. We are glad you enjoyed the hotel's services and our staff. In regards to freshwater/ saltwater pool and interior design it is difficult to please everyone. Guests have different preferences and characters. We can ensure you that we will start with the first part of the renovation very soon, and maybe when...

We stayed here for two nights in April. We really loved it. Our only regret was that we hadn't booked longer. We had a beach view room. The room is quite spacious - it was big enough to fit an extra bed. The view form our room was stunning. The beach area is still relatively unspoiled and the water is...

This place was one of the first ones built on the beach. Nothing between your room and the see...! Just fantastic. The building is now a bit old and needs refurbishing. Wifi almost does not work. The sink was blocked and the staff wasn't able to fix it. The room wasn't smelling good... Overall I would have been negative if...

Dear msegard, Thank you very much for mentioning the great location of our resort. We will start with our renovation at the beginning of this monsoon season, to ensure that we will be up to date for our future guests. This process cannot be finished in one rainy season, therefore we will finish the upgrade in 2018. Our WiFi system...

We stayed here at the end of our tour of Myanmar and it was a perfect place to chill after a few hectic days. We were picked up at the airport by welcoming staff, didn't even have to find our luggage , and then a relaxed check in and a chat with the very hands-on manager. Our room was a...

Dear ka_bee, Thank you very much for your great review and for confirming that it is not noisy, the sunbeds do not have to be reserved (as we have more sunbeds than guests in the hotel) and that our restaurant prices match the provided quality.

This hotel was just perfect from beginning to end. Beautiful room, fabulous setting and attentive service. We are in the hotel restaurant on three occasions and the food was excellent. The hotel is towards the end of the beach away from most other hotels but there a three or four excellent local restaurants within 2 minutes walk which we used...

Because of rainy islands in Thailand, we had to make a last minute decision to change our destination to Myanma. So we got a visa literally a day before the flight to Yangon and booked a hotel at the last minute. Initially I wanted to stay at Ngapali Bay Villas & Spa due to its high review-rated, but there was...

Great pool/restaurant area and a good spot on the beach are all plus points, with nightlife close enough to enjoy but far enough away not to disturb your sleep.
