      Very nice and spacious room. The room was cleaned twice a day. Drinking Walter is provided. The breakfast at the Sandoway Resort (250 m), is very good, with fresh croissants, eggs, pancake, fruits, yoghurt and various other tasty food. There are two sunbeds at the beach reserved for each room I would recommend to stay at the residence as it is a perfect location to have some perfect days at Ngapali Beach.

      One of the best places I have stayed and the view is something else .. although a bit of a walk to get to our breakfast table which is in an entirely different resort .. but every bit of 200$ a night has been worth it !!!

      They have three properties. For each facility you have to go to one property. Breakfast is in one property. Kayak rental in one property. Bicycle at another. No pool at the residence. No room service at the residence. For the kind of money that is being charged, the least that can be provided is room service. We were travelling with children and if they were hungry they had to walk on the beach for 5 to 7 mins to the other resort to eat.

      -very nice hotel -nicest part of the beach -the residence is a part of Sandoway beach resort which is nearby (5 minutes walk) -the residence is located directly at beachfront -breakfast is in the Sandoway beach resort; you can order breakfast also to the residence (room service reservation one day/evening before) -ATM next to the hotel (the only one in Ngapali) -a lot of restaurants and some small shops on the street -large rooms, turn down service, large bed and bathroom (separate toilet and shower) and balcony/ terrace -no TV in room; the resort has a own cinema -you geht your own sunlounger and umbrella, beach towels in rooms available -front office staff will organize also flights and Shuttle oder taxi to the airport -we only stayed in this Hotel but wie think it is the best one with the nicest beach part -there are no cheap hotels available in this Arena so it is the best value for money

      Amazing beach hotel!”

      Location, cleanliness, value

      The location is at the southern section of Ngapali beach, and about a 15-minute taxi ride from the airport. About 1/3 of the rooms are directly on the beach and the other 2/3 of the rooms are garden view, but you can see some of the ocean from the rooms on the upper floor. The condition of the rooms is great, and everything is clean and relatively new. We loved the fact that our room did not have a TV! Our only complaint, as with the rest of Myanmar (even Yangon) is that the internet speed is TERRIBLE. It was worse than dial-up speeds (from the 90's).

      five days in paradise”

      location on the beach, spacious rooms, friendly staff

      The Residence belongs to the nearby Sandoway Resort, where you can use all amenities. We loved to be a bit away and enjoy more privacy than in the resort. The rooms are neatly designed, spacious and have everything you need. And you have one of the greatest beaches ever right in front of you, We were upgraded to a beachfront room which you should go for - the sunset views are incredible. The prices are significantly lower than in the resort itself and we felt it was incredibly good value for money. There are plans to build a large new beach club further down the beach, so it seems that the little beachfront restaurants and massage cabins which are part of the particular charm of this beach will soon be gone.

      The recidence fulfilled all my dreams. my daughter age 5 and I stayed here for 5 nights. choose with a view to The Beach with direct access. it is worth every dollar. I could sit on The terrasse and relax while my daughter found shells on The Beach. Sandy access in water. The room is spacious and Nice to be in with natural colours and materials. luxurious in every detail . even The conditioner and scrub in the restroom is to mention. I asked for a bathtop for my daughter. 5 min. later it was arranged. The staff was so Nice like most people in Burma. The recidence is one of my favorite spots- ever. GO !!! and try breakfast served in your room after an early strool on The Beach. and a massage at The Beach later on 10.000 kyat for an hour. finish up with a lobster (from 30.000 kyat) at one of The beach restaurents. we drove there on one of The hotels bikes- on The Beach. :-)

      Beautiful room, Excellent location.”

      Room was absolutely stunning. Very large and comfortable. Bathroom was also big, with walk in shower. Plenty of hot water at all times, and luxurious toiletries. Quiet. Pretty garden and plants. Easy walking to many restaurants. Breakfast at the main resort was very good although the cutlery was beginning to smell very metallic. A minor point but they do need replacing. Taking the free pedal cycles each morning to go to breakfast was in some ways better than walking along the beach. The sun loungers were allocated by room numbers but whilst it guaranteed a bed they were too close together and if you were in the second row there wasn't much of a view. Hence if the person in front or next to smoked it was pretty unpleasant. Friendly staff. We stayed for 10 nights and loved it. Without a doubt the best location along the beach.

      We were picked up at the airport without prior notice. Rooms are fantastic, they thought of everything. Wonderful comfortable beds, great shower, they provide a bag with beach towels, you have your own beach beds, you can have breakfast at the Sandoways (100 mtrs north of the beach) which is amazing! Although at agoda the booking says no breakfast, you do get it. You can use all facilities of the Sandoway. Nothing negative to remark. Definately worth the money.

      Better than three star”

      Room, beach, staff

      Beautiful situation right on the beach. The six rooms facing the beach are best, get one of those the others are down the side and would be a disappointment. Staff are lovely, nothing was too much trouble. Free transfers from the airport.

      Incredible Honeymoon Spot”

      Everything about this place is great. The staff are incredible, the beach is off the chain and the breakfast makes the stay very good value for money. Thoroughly recommended.

      Nice off-shoot of Sandoway resort ”

      As I visited at a busy time, we were able to walk up to the Sandoway resort for breakfast, as well as use the facilities there. I'm not sure I would stay at the Residence again if this wasn't going to be the case. It's nice to have the privacy and the quietness, especially if you are a couple, but if you are solo or a family I think one of the resorts would be better. That said, lovely staff and excellent house keeping service. Really spacious room. Wasn't sure how I felt about their allocated sun loungers on the beach!

      What a view”

      Clean, view , beach

      Great stay. Good service. Quite expensive for Myanmar - I think value in Thailand and beaches are nicer. That said, leas commercial, people more pleasant, and a more pleasant experience than Thailand. Not many people around. Locals sell fresh fruit. Lots of good seafood restaurants. Worth a visit but paid a premium over Christmas as expected.
