Tennis and tranquility

Found a stroll away from Thiwson Beach Resort on the beach, the views, as hinted at by the resort’s name, are indeed impressive here.
Twelve bungalows, all cylindrical with thatched roofs and bamboo siding, look deceptively simple from the exterior, but inside reveals a more plush design. Wood flooring and wood details in the walls and recessed ceiling, a custom made wooden bed frame, sofa and curved vanity tables, plus a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. Every room has a large veranda, fridge, satellite TV and Wi-Fi. The bungalows are set around a large swimming pool with landscaped tropical gardens, with those closer to the beach fetching a higher price. We didn’t try the restaurant but some guests staying there told us it was good. Relaxation and sports appear to be the theme here, with a tennis court across the road behind the resort and bicycles for rent. Given the scene around the pool, Better View looks to be a choice escape for couples. Shop online for a competitive rate.
