Affectionately known as Boulder Island because of the beautiful boulders scattered along the coast, including the fascinating balancing boulder, the island of Nga Khin Nyo Ghee is quiet and secluded, but mesmerizing. Despite its size, there is so much to explore on this small island, from its rugged coastlines and tropical forest. Guests can choose to go on guided tours of the island, including excursions to places such as:
- Moken Bay
- Bamboo Bay
- Secret Beach
- Bamboo Forest
The resort is situated on the Nga Khin Nyo Ghee Island in the Mergui Archipelgo of Southern Mayanmar. The island is one of the most westerly in the archipelago and as a result experiences a unique, but pleasant climate, and exceptionally clear blue waters.
- Nearest airport: Kawthaung Airport (the island is only accessible by boat)
- Key attraction: Eagle Rock Viewpoint
- Nearby restaurant: On-site restaurant, with food from the garden
As part of what we do here at Kiwano we advise hotels that don’t meet the criteria on how they can reach the renowned Kiwano seal of approval, sharing knowledge; working tirelessly to get more hotels inspired to join the green movement.
EnergyThe resort is powered by solar energy panels, which are located slightly away from the bungalows in order to avoid cutting down any trees. As well as this, all the buildings are fitted...
WaterWater is provided by a natural spring on the island, which is then purified by a solar-powered purifier.

restoration programmes. This includes setting up coral nurseries at three different locations around the island, made with recycled fish traps. These nurseries are designed to encourage the growth of new coral, which is so important for maintaining biodiversity. The resort has also set up permanent moorings for boats, so there is no need to drop anchors which could potentially damage coral. All of the resort’s findings are accumulated and shared with other operators in the region and the Marine Biology Department of Myeik University.
FoodThe resort has its own intricately designed mandala garden for fresh produce. For food that can’t be grown here it is locally sourced where ever possible.

" I recommend this place!"
Boulder Bay Eco Resort is the only hotel in the island, there are not many tourists and the natural environment is well preserved. The surroundings of the resort are really beautiful. You can have a walk in the forest with a guide, dive or go snorkelling to see colourful fish and corals in pristine waters.

If you want to have a different and great experience in an island, you should visit Boulder Bay Island! All bungalows have stunning views. We enjoyed a lot doing all the activities in the island, specially snorkeling.
