Happy Chinese New Year! 

I am sure the New Years treat you well.

Wishing everyone good times with

“Salt in the Water and Sand in the Air.”

This is what everyday should be like, agree?

The Naka Island,

an exclusive boutique resort on the Naka Yai Island,

A Luxury Collection Hotel & Resort by Starwood.

Only 25 mins from the airport (including 5 mins speedboat), and it feels like a world away.

I couldn’t ask for more to be accessible to this unique, authentic, and enriching place and not having to deal with my seasick!

A warm welcome with a buggy ride to a welcome ceremony, waking up the dragon to notify him we are here!

Nice touch with the bicycles

The Seaview Villa is quite large, built like a Siheyuan/ Chinese Quadrangles,

with a courtyard surrounded by buildings on all four sides,

but designed like a Greece house with cool and clean Greece stones –

from a sandy entrance, outdoor play area, the large plunge pool, the bedroom,

the outdoor tanning area, outdoor tub and outdoor shower to a large bathroom.

The white and the blue, doesn’t this look a little like Greece?

To be honest with you, this was our hang out everyday

because of the free flow of coconut ice cream!

(well, and of course the friendly vibe around)

After a 15 mins walk from the resort, we surprisingly discovered that there was a village on the island.

As we walked through a forest of rubber trees where the locals collected rubber from,

we see a store where we bought from the locals a hand-made straw hat and a coconut,

a very very local restaurant, and even a school, also also this great

sandy discovery.

Sun is down, Time to rest,

Stay with me, More to come.
