“Awei Pila offers total seclusion and a magical hideaway that you will struggle to leave. The pristine long beaches are picture perfect and all yours. The in-house dive centre offers superb dive excursions to nearby sites bustling with marine life, including dugongs and turtles. Hike through the forests and spot the diverse wildlife, from gibbons, civet cats and monitor lizards, as well as beautiful bird life such as Hornbills, Sea Eagles and Kingfishers. If you’re lucky you might even spot a mouse deer rustling around in the leaves.”
Set on a tropical island in the Mergui Archipelago, Awei Pila Resort offers total barefoot luxury with sustainability at its core. Kyun Pila island’s pristine shoreline is around 80km from Kawthaung, accessible by a three-hour private boat transfer.
Its luxurious 24 tented villas are designed with the environment in mind; lightweight structures aim to conserve surrounding vegetation while enhancing views of the Andaman and forest. Interiors are light-filled with floor-to-ceiling openings, white-washed timber latticing and modern comforts, including electricity and air conditioning.
Dine at the resort’s open-air restaurant for relaxing lunches and indulgent degustation menus just seconds from golden sand and azure seascapes. Sip cocktails and refreshing coconut concoctions at the poolside bar.
Awei Pila holds conservation as its spearhead with several activities, excursions and an in-house marine biologist ensuring the island maintains its natural allure. Enjoy jungle trekking, water sports, snorkelling, or visit Fisherman’s Bay and experience the local seafaring culture.
