Rimming the furthest sandy edge of Cat Co 2 beach, the charming yet dinky stone-and-thatch bungalows of this resort sit within a manicured lawn dotted with palm trees, and boast open-air bathrooms. Kayaking and a sauna are all on tap, and there’s a breezy open-sided bar-restaurant with water views.
