Travel Experience

Just 45 minutes by boat from Ngapali Beach lies a blissful hideaway where tourism has yet to leave its mark. This is Maung Shwe Lay, a fishing village set on a quiet bay with white sands and swaying palm trees. For those looking to unwind, Maung Shwe Lay’s beaches are the perfect place to do so. For outdoorsy adventurers, the surrounding area is a veritable natural playground with hills to hike, paddy fields to explore by bike and coral reefs for snorkelling.

Responsibility

A stay at Lalay Lodge is an opportunity to experience and connect with unspoiled nature and the sense of community that is at the core of daily life in Maung Shwe Lay. Guests can experience a local cuisine provided by chefs from Maung Shwe Lay village, using local products and traditional recipes. The menu changes daily, ensuring each meal is a fresh farm-to-table experience. Your stay will be powered by solar energy to minimize the environmental impact as well as no single-use plastic amenities in the room including a plastic bottle.

Business Case

Your stay will be beneficial socially and economically to the community members who are working in Lalay Lodge which are including the support to the local library, built toilets at the school, built a water well and continuously looked at ways to support the community. More projects to improve People and Planet in Maung Shwe Lay are on its way (garbage collecting system for the whole community, coral reef protection) and I want to invite you to have a fantastic stay at Lalay Lodge and know you're doing something good for the community.
