Wa Ale Island, in Myanmar’s Mergui Archipelago, is wild and serene. The newly-opened Wa Ale Island Resort reflects this.
The Resort has the potential to be the ultimate escape from home while simultaneously offering the things we love most about where we come from: comfort, great company, and a good night’s sleep.
The island is huge. Even if at full occupancy there will be enough space (beach, sea, jungle …) for all guests to feel suitably cut off from the humdrum of the world.
Guests can stay in one of the eleven luxury state-of-the-art tents or in one of the three unique tree houses, all which blend into the jungle and offer unobstructed views of the ocean. Guests dine at the pavilion, enjoying both Asian and Mediterranean dishes, with many of the ingredients sourced from the island’s own farm or local farms in the region.
We Ale Resort shies away from words such as ‘eco’ (often over and disingenuously used in Myanmar) and instead describes itself as ‘low impact’. The majority of the Resort has been built from local raw materials and reclaimed wood.
Wa Ale Island is situated at the tip of the Lampi Marine National Park. By staying at the Resort guests are supporting the Lampi Foundation which manages social welfare and conservation projects throughout Lampi. One of the Foundation’s most significant projects to date is the development of a turtle hatchery, helping to provide a safe environment for the Green, Hawksbill and Leatherback Turtles that nest on the island of Wa Ale.
Wa Ale Island Resort stands out due to its commitment and respect for its surroundings and its recognition of the value of empty space. From the pebbled path leading into the hotel entrance that is invisible from the sea, to the slate in the show kitchen that has been taken from billiard tables left over by the British, the attention to detail is remarkable.
