Awei Pila Resort
Why We Love This Hotel
Privacy: Located on a remote beach that is only accessible by boat, visitors to this high-end barefoot luxury resort can get a sense of what it truly means to “get away.”
Nature: Composed of virtually untouched forests and coral reefs, this region is a mecca for nature lovers. Spot plain-pouched hornbills perched above and dugongs and turtles playing in the sea below.
Eco-Friendly: Solar-powered accommodations are designed to fit in with their surroundings, and minimal waste is allowed on the island, aiming to ensure its continued resplendence. In fact, the majority of waste is composted, and no single-use plastics are allowed on the island.

Covering 59 square meters, these chic, beachfront view rooms that are perfect for two offer stunning views of the Andaman Sea. Replete with avant-garde sensibilities, the room’s soft white textures and exposed, wooden beams mix with cherry wood floors. Rooms can be appointed with a queen bed or twins, and there is a private terrace surrounded by manicured gardens where guests can relax.
Seaview Row 2
Similar to the Beachfront accommodations in design, these rooms also cover 59 square meters and are appropriate for two guests. The room can be appointed with one queen or a pair of twin beds, and the furnishings are at once stylish and comfortable. The room offers spectacular views of the Mergui forest, and there is also a private terrace and forest garden for guests to unwind in.
A stone's throw from the beach, the resort’s infinity pool is a great place to go for a dip or lounge around in one of the recliners, and it is especially beautiful during the sunset.
Set in one of the resort's yurts, the spa is staffed by full-time professionals. It is surrounded by tropical plants, and the sounds of birds singing and waves lapping gently waft into the treatment room.
Café & Bar
Situated at the main reception area, the resort's cafe and bar offers a variety of refreshments and plush furnishings.
The resort's main restaurant is a romantic, open-air affair set near the reception area. Gourmet food composed of regional and international flavors is available, and the menu is always changing according to the seasons and desires of guests. All dishes are prepared by an international chef, and the freshest ingredients available are used, especially in terms of seafood. There is also a wide selection of alcoholic beverages on hand.

Remote Lands planned a wonderful trip for us to Myanmar. The itinerary included many unique stops that would not have been available to us in a packaged trip.
