Let us send you tips for travelling through Myanmar and stories from the road …
Indeed, this Lodge is different to anything else in Myanmar.
Situated in the township of Gwa, Arakan Nature Lodge is about a 3 hour-drive south of Ngapali Beach on the Western Coast of Myanmar. It is a world away from the resorts and luxury hotels upstate.
Many hotels in Myanmar claim to be ‘eco’ but nothing is quite like this Lodge which is 100% powered by solar and features rain showers and luxury composting toilets. The design of the minimalist bungalows is based on traditional Rakhine architecture, accentuated open fronts, allowing a sea breeze to naturally cool the interiors. The bungalows are spacious and elegant and ensure that the beauty of their surroundings remain centre stage. Each is slightly different, with most of the furniture having been crafted by local carpenters in Yangon.
FLASH POINT: One can visit the village monastery and pagoda and take boat trips to a couple of nearby islands. However the real pleasure of staying at Arakan Nature Lodge is savouring the crystal water, pristine sand, and tranquil environs.
In the midst of Myanmar’s most resplendent empire is the first in a new generation of hotel.
A place for quiet romantic getaways and curling up with a good book and board games.
