WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

  • Nature: Sea eagles soar overhead, the verdant jungle sharply contrasts with the expansive blue sea, and sea turtles mull around the soft stretch of private beach. The resort can arrange a number of nature excursions, but here simply stepping out of the villa counts as an adventure.
  • Luxury: Guests to this patch of luxury can lounge on their deck and enjoy the sound of the lapping ocean or dine over a gourmet meal prepared with the freshest ingredients on the planet.
  • Remote: Only accessible via a three-hour-long speedboat ride, Wa Ale Island is exceptionally remote, which translates to a feeling of unparalleled serenity.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Nestled on an island amid a 9,000-acre wildlife reserve on the Andaman Sea, few places in the world can rival the isolation, serenity, and sheer natural beauty offered by the Wa Ale Island Resort. The resort is complete with 11 villas that are directly connected to a private stretch of beach and two treetop villas that boast unobstructed vistas of the ocean. Accommodations are open-air and lavishly appointed with furniture that is perfect for lazy days under the sun and constructed in an environmentally conscious manner. Reclaimed materials were used during construction to avoid disrupting the surrounding environment. Gourmet meals feature a combination of Southeast Asian and Mediterranean dishes, which are prepared by a head chef who values health just as much as he values flavor. Rich fruit smoothies go hand-in-hand with the surrounding paradise; light brick-oven pizzas remind one that this is a place to relax. Bocce ball courts are set up on the sand, and there are a number of excursions to be taken around the island, such as trekking through jungle trails or snorkeling and diving through the archipelago's abundant reefs and caves. Exploring marine life in Lampi Marine National Park is a highlight. Wa Ale Island is remote. It can only be reached by three-hour luxury speedboat from Kawthaung, which is on Burma's mainland, but this is a worthy price for all the island has to offer.
