Checking in at the Sands and Sandals Resort was a pleasant experience. We had a pool facing room with a partial seaview. The bedroom was spacious with an outdoor bath at the balcony. Our minor gripe was the less than satisfactory air-conditioning which DC woke up with sweat the next day.
Our afternoon activities included kite flying by the peaceful beach and taking naps on the sun deck chairs by the swimming pool. For dinner, we drove out to the Indian Mamak stalls for our delicious roti canai and nasi goreng pattaya. On our way back to our room, we headed back to the beach to set off some mini-fireworks as well as moon watching by the sea.
Breakfast the following day was nothing to shout about which was a shame given that the resort is trying very hard to reinvent itself. After the uninspiring breakfast, we headed back to our room to continue our naps before it was time to check out in the afternoon.
This was a peaceful getaway for myself and a childhood dream fulfilled. We promised that we would be back again in 30 years time!
Growing up listening to the music of The Carpenters, he decided to name this blog Budokan in remembrance of their Live at Budokan Tour in Tokyo in May 1974. He finally made a trip to the Nippon Budokan in September 2017, 43 years after the Carpenters held their 18 sold-out concerts in Japan!
Hailing from the tropics, Budokan is fortunate to reside in Singapore where jetsetting around have become very affordable. His greatest passion lies in cultivating his lifetime career of travelling, blogging and tour guiding.
