Sandoway Resort
Ngapali Beach

Top 10s logo 

Sandoway Resort is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Beach Hotels

Nestled amongst coconut palms on Myanmar's Ngapali Beach, the Sandoway Resort is a heavenly beachside oasis. The 59 rooms, villas and cottages are scattered throughout six acres of lovingly cared for tropical gardens, and all rooms have some, if not full views out to sea. The rooms have been constructed from local materials including hard wood, stone carving and marble, and have an artistic attention to detail. They are stylishly understated in design and perfectly reflect the beach location.

The large swimming pool is ideally placed amongst the palm trees, looking out to sea and next to the pool bar. The spa is a wonderful place to hide away in the heat of the day in picturesque tranquillity, and the resort's main restaurant is directly on the seafront providing panoramic views of the Bay of Bengal. It serves a wide selection of freshly caught sea food, and there is the option to dine inside or outside. The lounge bar located on the open verandah overlooks the beach and is the perfect spot for drinks watching the sunset. The resort has an extensive library and a cinema room where you can enjoy a film every evening at 9pm. Local fresh sea food restaurants are within walking distance of the resort and are very good, and so you are well located if you wish to stretch your legs and explore a little.

My favourite thing is to go where I've never been.

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
