Sandoway Resort


Rating: Deluxe


Having opened in 1999, Sandoway Resort has enjoyed a long and successful presence on Ngapali’s golden stretch. Surrounded by coconut palms and inviting tropical gardens, each of the resort’s luxuriously appointed villas have been constructed using the finest of locally sourced materials. For the ultimate feeling of luxury and exclusivity, we would recommend booking one of the 120-metre-squared Beach Front Villas.  Set over two floors with a semi-private bay-view veranda, many would agree that this is the best room category on the beach. The Cottage and Deluxe category rooms will not disappoint either, and would perhaps be more suitable for those looking to experience the luxury of the Sandoway without paying a premium.


A distinct highlight is the part à la carte part buffet breakfast, which is a pleasure to eat in the resort’s elevated dining area that overlooks the beach. Many hours can be spent here, so it is probably not the best option for anyone looking to get any work done. The Sandoway is also the only property in Ngapali that boasts its own cinema, a 58-seat cinema in fact, which regularly screens international news channels and popular films (hopefully this will more than make up for the fact the Sandoway’s rooms have no televisions).


Last minute availability is rare here (especially in the sea front categories), so those keen to stay here should look to book well in advance.
