Wa Ale Island Resort, Myeik Archipelago

Those who venture to this alluring eco-resort on the untouched Myeik Archipelago are promised a real adventure amidst white sand beaches, rocky coasts, hidden bays, lush mangroves and evergreen forests.

Set in a beautiful cove in the Andaman Sea - just off the southern tip of Myanmar - the remote Wa Ale Island Resort is an escapists paradise. Whilst whisking you away from the bright lights and crowds of the city, you won’t find yourself missing any of the modern comforts. Each of the 13 luxury villas has been beautifully styled and custom designed from natural materials to blend into the surroundings. Expect elegant canopy beds, ensuite bathrooms, bamboo furniture, private decks and glorious ocean views.

From snorkelling the archipelago’s pristine reefs to kayaking through tranquil mangrove forests, Wa Ale allows its guests to fully immerse themselves in the rich natural beauty of the Myeik Archipelago in a responsible and sustainable way. The resort itself is constructed from locally reclaimed materials and designates a percentage of its ecotourism profits to conservation efforts in the Lampi Marine National Park.
