Why Wa Ale Resort Remains a Safe Haven Amidst Myanmar’s Political Climate in 2024


When planning to visit the beautiful country of Myanmar, we understand the need to be mindful of the current political climate. Despite ongoing challenges in the country, Wa Ale Resort provides a safe haven that offers an idyllic escape for those seeking an extraordinary experience in the natural paradise the country offers. Our guests’ safety is our top priority and this blog post will explore why Wa Ale Resort remains a secure and enjoyable destination to visit in 2024.

A private Island offering tranquillity and showcasing the unspoilt beauty of Myanmar

Wa Ale Resort is located on Wa Ale Island, part of the stunning Myeik Archipelago, comprising 800 islands in southern Myanmar. The secluded location of our beautiful resort makes it an ideal getaway for couples celebrating a special occasion, travellers looking to explore the unspoilt beauty of Myanmar and guests searching for a remote getaway, far removed from urban centers – allowing you to experience Burmese culture in safety, comfort and luxury. We regularly welcome guests from across the world, particularly from Western Europe (such as the UK, Spain, France and Germany). This tranquil retreat is surrounded by pristine beaches and lush jungle, providing an escape from the noise and challenges of the mainland.

Getting to Wa Ale Resort: Our commitment to your safety and security

Due to the remote location of the island, Wa Ale is perfectly positioned for guests to experience the unique Burmese culture safely and take in the natural beauty and wildlife it has to offer. 

We take the safety and well-being of our guests very seriously and we take every possible measure to ensure your trip is smooth, including getting to and from the island. Due to our proximity to the Thai border, we recommend all guests fly into Thailand where we arrange a free car transfer followed by a free boat transfer (available on Tuesdays and Saturdays each week – supplement applies for those choosing to travel on other days). After you land in Ranong Thailand, our staff will be with you every step of the way, ensuring that your journey is smooth and comfortable. 

Our guests usually fly from Bangkok to Ranong, Thailand, with AirAsia. There is a daily flight between Bangkok and Ranong with AirAsia. Another option is to take a car from Phuket to Ranong, with the drive taking approximately three and a half hours. Whether you fly or drive, our staff will collect you from either Ranong airport or the Ranong Border and take care of immigration at both Ranong (Thailand) and Kawthaung (Myanmar).

If you have any questions or concerns about your journey to Wa Ale, our team is available to provide assistance and information to help you feel at ease when planning your visit.
