The Ngapali Bay Resort re-opened in 2011 and is one of the best properties on the beach. The beach front villas are unique compared to other hotels in the area; they feature hand-selected local paintings and antiques, high wooden ceilings and bright spacious living areas and bathrooms. The zig zag layout of the 32 villas guarantees each one has a beach view. There are four categories of villa and the suites have their own private plunge pool and outside gazebo where guests can enjoy private dining. There is an open feel throughout the resort with sweeping gardens spilling over onto the beach and the spacious outside dining area making for fantastically atmospheric meals. The restaurant serves fresh sea food on the open terrace as well as an array of local cuisine. There is good strength Wi-Fi throughout the property, including in the guestrooms.
I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.Bill Bryson
