Wa Ale Is­land Re­sort

Get­ting to Wa Ale Is­land Re­sort re­quires ef­fort. You ar­rive at the mod­est Kawthaung Air­port in Burma. A chauf­feur picks you up and drops you off at the jetty for a two-hour ride aboard a lux­u­ri­ous 55 ft yacht. Trust us, it’s worth the wait. The re­sort lies within the vast Lampi Ma­rine Na­tional Park, an ASEAN Ma­rine Her­itage site. You’d know you have ar­rived the mo­ment you hit the stun­ningly clear, blue wa­ters teem­ing with whale sharks, dugongs and manta rays.

Within the re­sort are two restau­rants, a spa, 11 Tented Beach Vil­las and three Tree-top Vil­las. The lat­ter are beau­ti­fully nes­tled among lush green­ery and of­fer un­par­al­leled views of the An­daman Sea. Gear up for a slew of wildlife-cen­tric ac­tiv­i­ties. Trek through the flora of Wa Ale’s jun­gle or learn how to fish like the in­dige­nous Mo­ken peo­ple (also known as sea gyp­sies). Room rates from US$500/ night, in­clud­ing trans­fers and se­lected ac­tiv­i­ties. 96 Myananda Street, Kawthaung Town­ship, Taninthayi Re­gion, Myan­mar.
