01-May-2020
 
Awei Pila Resort / Mergui Archipelago
When looking for a complete getaway, Awei Pila is an exclusive resort on a tropical island in Myanmar’s Mergui Archipelago. For guests who appreciate a boutique property with premium amenities, then Awei Pila is ideal – 24 air-conditioned tented villas front a beautiful white-sand beach, complete with open-air restaurant and spa.
Located 80 km from the shoreline of Kawthaung, on the northernmost beach of Pila Island. This secluded beach is surrounded by virgin forest with views out to the open Andaman Sea. The natural bay embraces a 600 metre long beach front, which is divided into two zones by a large rock formation, granting a select number of units further privacy.

Only open seasonally from October to May, guests enjoy a two-hour speedboat ride among the 800 islands, atolls and coral reefs to reach Awei Pila

 

Mergui Archipelago
The Mergui Archipelago lies off the far south coast of Myanmar. It’s comprised of hundreds of islands, which have coral reefs and beaches. The Mergui is home to the seafaring indigenous Moken people. It’s a heaven for birds, notably the plain-pouched hornbill, as well as marine life like dugongs and turtles.

 

 

UNESCO World Heritage Site Designate
While the biodiversity is largely unknown, the intact vegetation on such an array of islands, with associated marine habitats and spectacular geomorphology, is likely to be of high global biodiversity significance. The biodiversity values of this set of forested continental islands, and the limited protection afforded such coastal islands elsewhere in the region, indicates that they are likely to be of global priority and form a potentially important trans-boundary World Heritage inscription.
