The octagon at Cilik's Beach Garden, Air Saneh

The octagon, where we stayed, is half of glass and half of something solid, probably cement. The floor is of a glassily polished terazzo. It is just a few metres from the sea wall against which the waves lap, or crash, according to their mood. There is no beach. Initially, I was disappointed, but soon realised that in truth I have never been a sand lover. A pair of padded sun lounges on a private patch of grass in a beautiful garden right next to the breaking waves is preferable to a stretch of beach. Instead of walking along the beach, you can walk along the sea wall.
