Up to now, lux­u­ri­ous of­fer­ings in Myan­mar have not matched the at­ten­tion the coun­try has drawn from in­vestors. But Yan­gon-based Mem­o­ries Group, which listed in Sin­ga­pore ear­lier this year, is set to change the land­scape with the open­ing of Awei Pila next month.

The chi-chi re­sort (top), sit­u­ated on the re­mote is­land of Pila in Myan­mar’s Mer­gui Ar­chi­pel­ago, is two hours by speed­boat from the main­land and has 24 sump­tu­ous tented vil­las, an open-air restau­rant and a spa. Guests who pay the US$750 (S$1,035) all-in­clu­sive, per day, per villa (for two) rate will step into a pris­tine haven rich in wildlife and un­ex­plored beaches.

It is the first in a slew of up­scale prop­er­ties planned by the com­pany, whose port­fo­lio al­ready in­cludes bal­loon sa­faris (right) over Ba­gan and Inle, as well as yacht­ing in the Mer­gui Ar­chi­pel­ago with Burma Boat­ing. Up­com­ing prop­er­ties in­clude Awei Metta (above), an ur­ban golf re­sort in Pun Hlaing Es­tate, Yan­gon, with an 18-hole course de­signed by South African leg­end Gary Player; and eth­nic eco-chic lodges in Karen and Kayah states.
