Unforgettable Activities and Experiences at Wa Ale Resort

Wa Ale Resort offers an unparalleled blend of luxury and adventure. Our eco-friendly haven is located on a private island in Myanmar’s Lampi Marine National Park, so whether you are seeking relaxation, wildlife encounters, or exhilarating activities, Wa Ale Resort provides an array of unforgettable experiences. Here’s a detailed look at the exciting activities that await you.

Embrace Nature at Wa Ale

Guided Nature Tours

Wa Ale Resort is a sanctuary for nature enthusiasts. Embark on guided wildlife tours to explore the island’s lush jungles, majestic mangroves and diverse ecosystems. Our knowledgeable local guides will lead you through the dense mangroves and coastal forests, where you can observe a variety of flora and fauna. Keep your eyes peeled for the island’s resident hornbills, sea turtles, and flying fox bats. These tours not only offer a chance to witness natural beauty up close but also promote conservation awareness and explain how Wa Ale is preserving the habitats of the creatures who inhabit the island and its surrounds. 

Visit the Conservation Center 

Located conveniently next to our River Café, our beautiful viewing platform was constructed for optimal wildlife sightings in a serene and relaxing setting. Peruse our bird board and scan the jungle canopy for hornbills, racket-tailed drongos and pond herons, amongst many other bird species that call Wa Ale home. The surrounding wilderness might also afford a glimpse of reticulated pythons, clouded monitor lizards, several species of primate or even the elusive palm civet. Grab a drink from the River Café, settle in with your binoculars and soak in your surroundings.

Dive into Marine Adventures

Snorkeling and Diving

The crystal-clear waters surrounding Wa Ale Resort are teeming with marine life, making it a paradise for snorkeling and diving enthusiasts. Discover vibrant coral reefs and swim alongside exotic fish, sea turtles, and occasionally, gentle manta rays. The resort provides high-quality snorkeling and diving gear, ensuring a safe and enjoyable underwater experience for all skill levels.

Our House Reef is situated near Canyon Cove, around ten minutes by boat from Wa Ale. A beautiful, fringing reef covered in mushroom corals awaits, along with porites and lettuce coral. Sea life such as clownfish, damsels and parrotfish call this reef home, and can be viewed in abundance at this Wa Ale exclusive snorkeling destination.

Kayaking and Paddleboarding

For those who prefer to stay above the water, kayaking and paddleboarding are perfect activities. Glide through the calm waters of our very own Mangrove Bay, Galet River, Canyon Cove and more. The warm, still waters are complemented with a sandy bottom, perfect for frequent dips. Further out, watch as the reef life begins to emerge in the deeper blue, complete with darting schools of fish. Our team will be able to advise the best spots for you and we have an array of guided and unguided routes for you to choose from. 

Rejuvenate with Wellness Activities

Self-Care Spa Treatments

Pamper yourself with luxurious spa treatments that incorporate natural ingredients. The resort’s skilled therapists offer a range of massages and therapies designed to relieve stress and enhance well-being. Whether you choose a deep tissue massage or a soothing facial, the serene environment enhances the overall experience.

Yoga and Meditation

Wa Ale Resort emphasizes holistic wellness, offering daily yoga and meditation sessions. Practice yoga on the resort’s open-air deck, surrounded by the soothing sounds of nature. These sessions are designed to rejuvenate your mind and body, providing a perfect balance of relaxation and physical activity.

Jungle Gym

Join our instructors for a range of classes from HiiT (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts, to strength training. If you’d rather exercise without a guide, our jungle gym is open to you whenever a class isn’t in session. Make full use of free weights, kettle bells, medicine balls and multiple TRX suspension trainers. At the far end of Turtle Beach, the jungle gym offers lovely views of the ocean in between rocky cliffs and sheltering trees. Set back into the lush vegetation, the jungle gym is designed to be shady at any time of day, with a soft breeze to cool you off as you work out.
