Insider's View

It is definitely worth going for the Beach Front bungalows which have the best views.

To start planning your holiday to Amara Ocean Resort


Amara Ocean Resort is located to the north of Ngapali’s main stretch of hotels in Burma, opening out onto an exceptionally unspoilt and quiet beach. With just 28 bungalows, Amara makes for an ideal Robinson Crusoe escape.

The big positive of Amara Ocean is that it is away from the main stretch of hotels which are located all together to the south of Thandwe Airport. Instead you take the more bumpy road to the north where you will find a far superior beach to those that line the coast to the south. This is what Amara is all about, an escape away from it all.

There are 26 private teak-lined air-conditioned bungalows, all featuring delightful sundecks. With thatched roofs and a delightful understated luxury, the bungalows come across very Robinson Crusoe in style. There are three different bungalow categories - choose from either Beach Front or Sea Front which are set in the row behind. There are four of these which come as two bedroom duplex villas, ideal for families.

At the centre of the resort you will find the main restaurant serving Asian and Mediterranean fare, a bar and main swimming pool. The resort also features a spa and library.

There are 24 bungalows and two twin bungalows. They all have a terrace and choose from either a Sea View Bungalow which is in the second row back, or a Beach Front Bungalow which provides the best views.


Amara Ocean Resort has a small spa, main swimming pool, main restaurant, bar, small library with TV and a boutique.



Clare Monro (Staff)

Amara Ocean is great for those looking for an untouched beach, as you look along the coast from Amara and can't see any other properties which is glorious! It is along quite a bumpy track so does take quite a bit longer to get to than it should, but that is part of the beauty of it. Rooms are spacious with lovely high ceilings.
