HOLIDAYS, Sanya, Uncategorized SANYA: HURRAY FOR PRIVATE POOLS! 25 March 2010

I’d say 80% of our day was spent lounging in/by our pool 😀 Fe were specifically after a resort in Sanya that had a villa with a private pool… but oddly, not many do and Banyan Tree was basically the only one that was good. I figured it would be nice to be completely shut away from the rest of the world, where we could have a swim in privacy and lounge around by the pool in tranquil peacefulness.

Well, we certainly had that! Our villa and pool were overlooking a lake, so we were truly hidden from prying eyes and any annoying sounds. It was nice to have our own little playground 🙂 I adored our pool and spent most of my day in it because the water was so warm, thanks to Sanya’s tropical weather. It’s so easy to just *plop* in! Normally I don’t like swimming because I have a fear of getting cold when I swim.. and it almost always takes me AGES to get into the water (I go in inch by inch, would never jump straight in ‘cos that’s for craaaazy people!). But here, I just walked in and it was perfectly fine. Plus, there are steps in the pool going up to the bedroom that you can sit on, and a seat/ledge at the edge of the pool overlooking the lake, so you can rest there and get a tan.

When we weren’t splashing around in the pool, we were laying back on the lounge chairs or day bed. Surfing the internet 😉 Originally we weren’t going to bring our laptops because didn’t want it to distract me from spending time with Chris. But then Chris decided it was a craaazy idea and that I needed to be online or I wouldn’t have a perfect holiday 😛 It was just as well, since we had hours and hours of lounging around!

It was major deja vu of our honeymoon… when I also lounged around by the water surfing the internet 😛 It’s my little slice of Heaven – internet, sun, water, warmth. Oh, and with a very hot and adoring husband right next to me 🙂 It was all meant to be in celebration of his birthday.. but it kinda felt like my present too, LOL!


The pool area in the day. Spot the lurking peeping tom 😉

The water was sooo deliciously warm since it’s always sunny in Sanya

Our private pool 🙂 Villa to the left, deckchairs (where we spent 80% of the day)
on the right. At the end, in front of where I’m facing, is a little seat in the pool. Cute!

A beautiful dragonfly I found and rescued when it was floating in the pool.

Taken from the bed. My at my favourite spot during the whole holiday..

Chilling on the deckchair in perfect weather, surfing the internet. My idea of Heaven 😉

    I would be bored without the internet. On the other hand, if I took a vacation like this I would bring a stack of books to keep me amused.

      If you 2 move to Asia, you can also go to the Banyan Tree resorts in the countries there.. it’s totally worth a visit 😀
