We stayed for 1 night in a Beach Cabana to see the Sea Turtles at Rekawa Beach, although turtles also lay at the beach in front of the cabanas! They are beautifully made from wood, with an underground wetroom to keep the footprint of the cabana small and simple. The bed was comfortable with clean, with cool cotton sheets and effective mozzie net. Located on the beach in a quiet spot meant that the beach was almost deserted (apart from the crabs and cows) while we were there - complete luxury! The sea here is deep and powerful, and not good for swimming in at any time of day - despite this we did take a brief dip to freshen up, but couldn't stay in as it was quite dangerous.
The Cabanas are located down a difficult to negotiate road and there are seemingly no amenities outside of the resort. The staff were friendly and helpful, with good English. The food was good, although clearly tourist in orientation. They arranged a Tuk Tuk to Rekawa beach for turtle watching, which was 1500 Rupees wait and return.
Overall a beautiful secluded paradise spot, but somewhere I would have got bored with after a couple of days.
