Boulder Island Bay Eco Resort

"This absolutely stunning resort is situated on the western side of the Mergui Archipeligo off the Andaman coast of Myanmar and has only very recently opened."

As the name of the resort suggests, it has been built entirely out of eco-friendly and renewable materials and is barely visible from the luscious turquoise-green sea surrounding the island. The resort blends into it’s natural surroundings as the utmost of care has been taken to preserve the local ecosystem. Even though all of the materials used in its construction have been locally sourced and are natural, no detail has been spared on providing everything to make your stay there as comfortable as possible.

The natural exquisiteness of the resort cannot be underestimated or matched with anywhere else in the world and the selection of the islands four main beaches; Boulder Bay, Eagle Beach, Moken Beach, and Coral Bay provide a unique paradise, host to an array of activities. Speaking of activities, as you would expect from a resort in a location like this, there is a wealth of different activities to choose from; whether it is sea canoeing in the crystal clear, calm waters surrounding the island, a boat trip where you can view the stunning coastline from a short distance, an eco-discovery walk where you can take a closer look at the natural wildlife of this untouched paradise or trekking to discover the inner beauty of the islands forests and plantations.

Snorkeling or diving is of course a must and you don’t even need to dive deeply to catch sight of the stunning sea creatures that reside on the ocean floor (the visibility of the water is amazing!). Launch yourself into the water from a large barge located in Boulder Bay. For budding photographers or models, there is ample opportunity to be pictured against some of the most amazing backdrops that you have only ever seen in movies or on the pages of glossy magazines featuring the lifestyles of the rich and famous. For those interested in practicing yoga in the serenity of an isolated cove…. This is the place for you!

Expel your stress and inhale the pure clean air that can only be found in a place like this. If you want to get up close and personal with some unique sea-life, why not let your underwater camera accompany you on a dive and capture some truly stunning examples of marine wildlife, who knows- you may even discover a new species of coral or see anemone!  And just when you thought your day couldn’t get any better…. sunset is there to take your breath away night after night!

Accommodation at Boulder Bay Eco Resort ranges from ‘standard bungalows’, constructed within natural clearings with ample room space and a veranda to chill out on, to ‘superior bungalows’. At the top end, there are ‘suite bungalows’ which are suitable for accommodating a small family or group of people. All bungalows and suites have high ceilings and are furnished with everything you could possibly need. All food and drinks (non-alcoholic) and excursions are included in the resort price.

The sheer natural grace of this island that is home to Boulder Bay Eco Resort is truly amazing and is one of the last remaining places on earth that appears as if it has been untouched and unspoiled by human civilization for millions of years…. The water is so pristine and is host to such a wide variety of wildlife that researchers are arriving daily to discover its diversity which may provide the key to prolonging the life of some of the worlds more populated archipelagos. As well as a perfect base for marine biologists, the island has a host of tropical birdlife and an array of insects to fascinate the insectologists amongst us.

If you want to be one of the first to witness nature in it’s purest form then don’t leave this island off your list. Getting to the Eco Resort couldn't be simpler with a transfer from Kawthaung airport to Kawthaung Jetty where a boat takes you Boulder Bay every Saturday and Tuesday at 12:00 noon, returning to Kawthaung Jetty at 6am on Fridays and Mondays.








Hi, as far as I understand this resort will not open to the public until October 2017. Did you stay there as part of a promo visit? We are looking to stay 4 nights in March -- we considered doing a boat tour around the islands but decided that this resort may be a better options. Would you recommend as an alternative to island-hopping?
