Dear valuable Guest to Myanmar,

Many greetings from Laguna Lodge - Ngapali Beach Front, Myanmar.

We travel between Ngapali and Yangon very busy and not all the time connected with Internet,-- so there could be that answers come slow but are recorded. Pls send all mails to,mm and copy to - thank you for understanding.

As in the past weeks the demand was so high for Laguna Lodge bookings in Ngapali as well online reservations, we are a bit behind and like to ask you if your booking to Laguna Lodge is sure, which room and if you are committed to Pre Payment - gaining 10 % Discount on the same way.

We are happy that you plan to visit Myanmar and the Myanmar people, the support to Myanmar this year is overwelming and near to fully booked at several places. Most places are full through "Block Bookings" from bigger tour operators and agents which at the end do not all materialize for different reason. That applies to Hotels, Flights and all other Tourism services in Myanmar.

We at Laguna Lodge do not like to support this block booking system,-- also in fairness to the Myanmar Staff, knowing sure which earning they will nhave next to the usual salary through Bonus by good business.

But also to give the Guests which like really to come to Ngapali Beach and possible Laguna Lodge - ECO Resort at beach Front to give them the biggest and most early chance to confirm fcrom us and them both sides sure........

So we like to ensure this through pre payment commitment and the system works very well. Again we like to ask you if your booking to Laguna Lodge is sure, which room and if you are committed to Pre Payment - gaining 10 % Discount on the same way.

For a soon info answer wer are happy we will keep your booking otherwise for some more days ( 16.10.2012 ) and would than transfer the room to a wait listed guest request, if we do not hear from you.

We hope that you understand us in the best interest for the guests which are sure to come.

If you have a special reason so you are not able to commit at present,---- please let us also know about as we are happy to consider than an extension for your convenience....

Thanks & message to our anual and future guests:

 ".... we as everyone else got totally overwhelmed by the very big increase of tourists to Myanmar so also Ngapali Beach. We are very happy that we could help so many of our Laguna guests to arrange flights and hotels upcountry through our over 16 years friendship network within the Myanmar young tourism industry...;

At same time we experienced a very much increase and support to our social - aid - educational as well medical fields in Myanmar at different parts of the country ;
- Ayeyarwaddy Delta - Northern & Central Rakhine - Bago Division - Magway Dry Zone - Yangon outskirts -

This combined with the very popular increase of bookings at Laguna Lodge ECO Hotel Ngapali Beach Front left me less time in Ngapali as usual, mainly getting fore and back as much as possible. The reason why I was less in Ngapali the past weeks; I did not want to neglegt the many people we started to support in Myanmar since many years on our private initiatives, as well with the strong support from many international friends.

 So,- many of you, to the less fortunated as well through an un expected event kicked out of their daily routine in Myanmar by cyclones Nargis, Giri etc. or Tatschilake earthquake, or just Dr Julias & Dr Axels dental public health education projects.

We will for sure continue and increase these works specially in medical fields as: ENT, Eye, Plastic Surgery, Dental, Orthopaedics and many more ( medical experts are invited to join ) but also in the edicational field with strong partners from Europe to build more schools in most rural and remote areas for an even better educated Myanmar young generation. Talking to many of our traditional long stay guests which come back every year for weeks - they all agree to continue this work.

So I am happy that we were able to get 95 % of all our jobs are done very well according to our guest commends,- for the 5 % which had different expectations and we might could not always meet them, I want to apologize and offer you to come back as we take your comments very serious and working to implement them now already and soon more.

Our Staff, " Myanmar Women in the upcomingTourism Industry”, would be happy to show you the improvements we and they made - let`s have a drink on us and give us the pleasure to stay firm in the traditional of Myanmar hospitality with the strong move to always further improve our services.

As many can read in forums, a modern international style Hotel as many at Ngapali we are not,-- we are a small family run " Home on the Beach ", a feeling we like to share with you - Are You Ready?"

Of course it took us the a time of three months as everyone at the Myanmar Tourism season was very much " overrun " by theevents even that the 2010 / 2011 season already showed signs of an increase in tourism to Myanmar specially from USA and England which were: " verbally " not allowed to visit the people of Myanmar " before by their governments.
