The Amata has every 5 star facility any weary traveller could possibly wish for, as well as stylish, modernistic architecture, lush gardens and cool sea breeze. The resort was designed by the state-of-the-art-New York architectural firm, Spine, with a brief to capture the languid beauty of a traditionally Asian setting and the result is an exquisitely modern resort, positioned directly on the waters edge.
This is not a resort with a conventional central accommodation block, instead the rooms are well spread out in the grounds, divided between various categories. The Superior Rooms sit below the slightly larger Deluxe Rooms and the Cabanas are stand-alone two storey wooden bungalows with outdoor bathtubs. The Grand Cabanas have wonderful sea views, their very own private plunge pool and a cute mezzanine level bedroom and direct sea views and the top room is the (The Grand Governor’s Cabana) with an enclosed garden, lotus ponds and stunning sea views. All rooms are romantically decorated and come equipped with coffee and tea facilities, as well as satellite television and DVD players upon request.
The restaurant offers a sumptuous selection of local, regional and continental cuisines including regional Rakhine dishes, which can all be followed by the resorts own homemade ice cream. The fresh homemade bread served at breakfast is another stand-out feature.
The Amata Resort has a shining blue swimming pool overlooking the beach. Other facilities include a tennis court, bicycles for rent, a business centre and wifi internet.
If a soothing therapy for mind, body and soul is required why not try The Amata Spa. The spa provides many styles of massages from traditional massage, to foot reflexology.
