At a Glance
- Located to the north of Thadwe, near Ngapali, away from most of the other beach resorts
- Leads out onto an amazing beach
- Really lovely, laid-back atmosphere
Amara Ocean Resort is located to the north of Thadwe Airport, rather than the south where you find most of the hotels in Ngapali. The beach to the north is far better, and with only one or two hotels you will have the destination to yourself. You have to endure a 15 minute drive along a bumpy track to get there, but you know you are escaping the more touristy area. Amara is a wonderful escape, a chance to let the shoulders drop and soak up the delights of a beach stay on the Indian Ocean.
There are 26 private thatched bungalows that line the coast and come in two rows, the closest to the sea are the Beach Bungalows and the Sea View Bungalows are in the second row. The bungalows all feature a private sit-outs and inside you find gorgeously furnished teak-lined interiors exuding a barefoot, Robinson Crusoe style. At the centre of the resort, you will find the main restaurant, bar and library which opens out onto the main swimming pool. There is also a spa and a small boutique.
