We didn’t want to leave! ”

We originally booked for three nights but ended up staying for 15! Fantastic family run hotel, very welcoming and knowledgeable with great English. Perfect place to relax. Being at the northern end of the beach it’s a quieter area but the free bikes and hireable ebikes mean it’s easy to get around and explore if you don’t want to use a Tuk-tuk. There are a number of good restaurants in the area and far more accessible further south along the road. There are nice gardens to chill in at the hotel and the free all day tea, coffee and water is a great idea. It’s a short walk to the beach where you’ll find some umbrellas and chairs on the beach for hotel guests to use for free. The breakfast has a good selection and is served in lovely settings outside in the bamboo garden. The spacious rooms are kept very clean and restocked with toiletries every day. It didn’t matter for us as we had a local sim but the wifi isn’t very strong and often dropped out. Thank you for looking after us

Good location and nice environment”

Good location with 2 minutes walk to the beach. Walking every morning and evening for sunset on a long sandy beach with only a few people was exceptional. There were several options for restaurants with also friendly staff nearby. I did not get tired of eating during my 5-night stay. Breakfast in an open garden with bamboos. The design of the room and garden is nice and cute. The staff will take care of you as well. Definitely recommended.

Our favorite place so far, great vibes & super friendly.”

We loved this place, really convenient for the airport & tucked down a quiet lane off the main road. The manager was so helpful in recommending restaurants, beautiful quiet beaches & other places to explore. We enjoyed the use of the free bicycles and appreciated the free flowing coffee in the reception garden. The new palm tree garden was a very beautiful place to enjoy the delicious breakfast every morning. The room was spacious with a good wardrobe area. All the staff were exceptionally friendly & helpful.

Just perfect!”

I am the first review as this hotel has recently opened. What can I say ? There is nothing you can complain about! The hotel is new and very clean, my room and my bathromm were big and very clean. The bed was very good (my best sleep in Myanmar )and the sheets clean. The AC works very well, You' ve got hot showers. The room is cleaned every day . Breakfast is included and here also it was the best I had in Myanmar and it was very big : local food coming from the market ( their sticky rice was amazing), differents breads, very good pastries, egg, juice, tea/coffee. You can have bicycle for free. There is a beach 2 minutes walking but with the bicycle you can reach an amazing beach (25min). But the most amazing was Moe and her staff. All these guys are so smiling, kind, helpful and pleasant. Everything is done to make your stay perfect. This place is just heaven after a big trip in Myanmar when you need to rest and get some good time. Thank you for everything Moe: I spent an amazing moment at Villager Lodge and will never forget it! My best stay in Myanmar!

Fantastic stay, excellent value, and excellent staff”

The Villager Loge was a fantastic place to stay. We booked one night and decided to stay for five days it was that good! The staff spoke very good English and had a lot of information on restaurants, tours, and has free bicycle rental. The breakfast was delicious with their daily omelette, plus several local side dishes. Free coffee and tea anytime. WiFi was spotty at times, but I think it’s the carrier throughout the village. They did the best they could and was customer focused. The flat roof upstairs was a wonderful gathering place for our group to have a few evening beverages and share stories of the day. I think the only negative was the last day a neighbor was playing the radio blasting an announcing voice and tunes over a speaker all day. I’m not sure what it was but I needed earplugs. They told me it was a tradition of theirs. Highly recommend!

This hotel is conveniently located around 15 min from the airport. The staff is very helpful and provides useful information about the town. The room is clean and there is free coffee and tea at the reception. However, the room only provides electricity from late afternoon/evening (there’s no wifi/electricity in the morning when I arrive) and I think it’s typical for small hotels in this town. The wifi speed was ok provided that you stay near the reception. My room is too far for the wifi. The beach is only 5 min walk away and the beach, though not as nice as the main one which is around 20 min by bike, is clear and nice enough for me to have a swim every morning. They provide free bike which is handy and I quite enjoyed the ride to the main strip of the town where I could find lots of nice restaurants.

Amazing hospitality and great location”

Just a 2 minute walk to the beach! I was here in the last days before it closed for the rainy season, and the staff were more than accommodating. It was raining hard every morning and they brought breakfast to my room, and had a generator backup for when the power was out (which was frequent). I ended up extending my stay here and I did not run out of nearby places to eat even though lots of places were beginning to close. I highly recommend it!

WTF?”

Let me start by saying that I thought the people who worked at this hotel were nice. Very nice, like so many people in Myanmar. I am not reviewing them, I am reviewing the hotel. Something has gone seriously wrong when a place like this gets a 9.2 It was the most highly rated and expensive hotel we booked in Myanmar and It was by far the worst hotel we stayed at. They claim the Villager Lodge is new but it sure didn't seen to be. Maybe renovated? There was a new bathroom sink & rain showier head but 70's tiles. The floor was rough concrete and the paint was all chipped. The whole place felt grimy. The room was not cleaned for our 4 days there and we only got clean towels when we asked for them. The face clothes were never replaced. Someone came in a pulled the duvet up every day but the sheets were not changed - I killed a mosquito on day 1 and got to sleep on it for 4 days. The beds were comfortable. There was no safe in the room, and no kettle or coffee but they would give you a thermos of hot water. At breakfast, there were so many flies it was disgusting. Even when there was no food around the flies were all over the place mats - which I don't think had ever been cleaned. When the food was brought the flies were all over it immediately. We were given stale bread and Danish - my husband noticed it came (day old) (or 2-3) from the Amazing Resort across the street. The egg, if greasy & coffee were ok. The salt was mush. We were given tang or powdered drink mix, not orange juice and some fruit but the flies got it before we could. The Villager Lodge is near the worst beach in Ngapoli. You cross the main road and walk through 100 metres of trash to get to a dirty brown beach. The ocean was rough all over Ngapoli, too rough to swim, but maybe this was because it was mid to late April. There were bikes at the hotel you could use to get to the other beaches but there was only one was worth visiting and that was far enough you wanted to rent an e-bike
