This is first time to my Ngapali trip. I stay at Pleasant View Resort.I got good experience to my whole stay. Room are spacious and very clean. Staff are very polite and helpful.Especially May Pyae Phyo and Kaung Myat Kyaw are very helpful. If you want to any information,you can ask them and They are ready to give right information. I recommend when you arrive to Ngapali,you must stay at PVR.Breakfast are very delicious and many things to choose. Thanks you so much PVR Team.
PVR is a nice hotel at the South end of Ngapali Beach. It is next to the fishing village, so the beach itself is dotted with boats. As has ALL of Ngapali hotels these days, prices have skyrocketed through the roof. Be forewarned - hotels charge you IN ADVANCE...so I suggest paying per night. If your itinerary should change for any reason, you are NOT given a refund but a credit voucher to be used within a short period of time.
We stayed 7 nights at this nice location. 2 adults and 3 kids in a double cabin. When we arrived there were only 4 beds. We asked for the 5th bed and the message was that they would charge us 50USD per night. Via our travel agency we managed to get it down to 25USD. The stay was pleasant with a view. However the experience was a bit ruined upon checkout when we were presented with a bill of 150USD because they could not clean the sheets and pillows. We did not do anything out of the ordinary like throwing a party. This must be included as a running cost in a hotel at this price level.
Wow where do I start we had a fabulous time at the lovely Pleasant View Hotel snd relax on the beautiful beach? We found the staff very friendly and extremely hard working. Breakfast was good and lovely to sit and watch the world wake up. We spent long walls and used the bikes which were free to explore the surrounds. The sunsets were fabulous and I really believe this is one of the best spots on the stunning beach. This was the perfect end of our time in Myanmar after a busy but wonderful tour exploring Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake. We didn’t want to leave!
Our room was facing the beach and that is where we stayed most of the time. There weren't many people in the hotel when we were there and we had our choice of beach chairs. The wifi was excellent and reached the beach. The restaurant where we had our breakfast was sometimes closed at lunchtime, so we ate most of our meals along the road.
What a lovely place. We thought we had arrived in heaven. Beautiful reception area. Beautiful Pool. Large rooms with a spacious toilet shower area. A stone's throw to the beach. Lovely breakfast with a view. Spectacular restaurant on a rock in the ocean. Beautiful white sand beach.
Really comfortable and relaxing hotel after 10 days on the road in Myanmar. Staff really friendly - rooms clean and spacious. Loved the restaurant on the island. A great final 3 days to our Myanmar holiday
Visitors to the Ngapali Beach will find this resort to their satisfaction. Very comfortable rooms with Air Cond and WiFi, a fine Restaurant and coffee shop and an excellent breakfast. Located on the beach, a fine spot to soak in the sun and relax, or soak in the shallow oean
Recentl ywe stayed at the Pleasant View resort and everything was fine. Tthe staff was couteous and the rooms especially were spotlessly clean. A lot of the hotels in Ngapali beach have mold but not here. My wife and I are looking forward to coming back.
Where to begin? Let’s start with the misleading professional photos which give the impression of a nice décor. What a joke. There is a cheap wooden table and a few rattan chairs like you would find in a backpacker’s hostel. Ditto for the bathroom (see photos). I had a more-expensive second floor beachfront room and the view is fine, but walk back into the room and ask yourself, “Can I really be paying $147 per night (weekend rate) for this?”. By coincidence that is what I was paying at the 5-star Sule Shangri-La in Yangon. Ha, ha the jokes on me. Well, at least the lofty ceiling comes with overhead fans to provide a cooling breeze that tells you that you’re relaxing at the beach. Ha, ha, only kidding. The 20-foot high ceilings are there all right, but they seem to have forgotten the fans. Turn on the air con or sweat—up to you. Based on the room by itself, this is a 2-star hotel. Maybe you could give it an extra star for location which would bring it up to three. That’s it. We had dinner at Sandoway Resort which is nearby and, although it was the most expensive meal of the trip, I was impressed by the upscale ambiance and service. It’s definitely worth considering if you are looking at hotels. How to pass your time? Well, that’s a good question. You can sit outside or go for a swim, and there is a cute little islet with a restaurant/bar that is good for sunset cocktails. That pretty much covers it except that you can rent a boat with a local helmsman for ½ day for $20. He will take you a short distance to an island—but not to a beach—where you can snorkel and look at the rocks on the bottom. Apparently, there are no fish—at least none that I could see. Pretty much a waste of time unless you wish to entertain someone who has never used a snorkel. Tip: have your first timer practice on the beach before departing—learning on the boat is problematic. After that your friendly helmsman will offer to take you to the “lighthouse.” Just say no. There is no lighthouse—just a small island with a little refreshment stand. For the privilege of landing at this idyllic vacation spot each member of your party will fork over 2,000 Kyat. There may be a beach somewhere for the next stop, but I found the whole thing so lackluster that I just said “back to the hotel.” Overall, this is primarily a destination for those who are happy sitting around their hotel. No beach bars, no little villages. There are a some small restaurants along the main road and that’s about it for local color. Well, such is travel. Some days work better than others….…
