DESTINATION

mergui, Myanmar

HOTEL TYPE

Resort

LOCATION TYPE

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. 

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Off the southern coast of Myanmar lies the Mergui Archipelago, a collection of hundreds of islands boasting untouched coral reefs and beaches that were long inaccessible to tourists. Currently, there remain only a few islands open to the public in this area, and the Awei Pila Resort is one of them. The resort is nestled within virgin forest on Pila Island, which is located 80 kilometers from the shoreline of Kawthaung and is only accessible via private boat. Guests can enjoy stunning views of the Andaman Sea from the island's northernmost beach and enjoy a collection of chic, tented villa accommodations. Offering unparalleled privacy and built to allow for a low environmental impact, interiors are flooded with natural sunlight, and the light décor fosters a relaxing environment. Guests shower under the stars in their enclosed, outdoor bathrooms, and they can relax in private terraces that are surrounded by manicured gardens. The social hub of the resort is centered on the reception area, where there is a café and bar, as well as the resort’s flagship restaurant. Headed by a world-class chef, the restaurant strives to satisfy guests by serving up a gastronomical experience of local and regional flavors prepared with the freshest of ingredients – especially in terms of seafood. Of course, the main attraction to the island is the natural environment itself. The resort can organize a variety of snorkeling and scuba diving excursions for guests that reveal the complex, healthy ecosystems below, and a number of hiking and kayaking adventures can also be arranged. Additionally, the island is a paradise for birdwatchers, as a number of exotic species can be spotted here.
