The 100,548 square meter Intercontinental Sanya Resort has just been completed on Hainan Island off the coast of China. Singaporean architecture firm, WOHA, designed this gorgeous vacation spot, which includes a collection of villas, a clubhouse, two hundred hotel rooms, restaurant, watergarden, spas, sports center, and a ballroom. Seriously, who wouldn’t enjoy this eco-friendly and beautifully designed vacation destination?
I spent a weekend down in Longboat Key, Florida, a few weeks back, doing very little but lying on a deck chair by the pool, contemplating life and my small place in it, and enjoying the rather lush and salubrious surrounds of the Longboat Key Club and Resort. Yes, it’s a tough life, but, well, y’know, someone’s gotta do it. [photos by Alison Zavos]
Located on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico Drive, in the stunning surrounds of Sarasota, Florida, the Longboat Key Club and Resort is just about the most relaxing place on earth. Seriously. With a bountiful Florida sun beating down, it’s too easy to zone out beside the pool, drinking cocktails, reading sporadically, and imagining that this is how life should always be lived. Only it isn’t. Well, for most of us anyway. Paris Hilton, really! What are you doing wasting time in LA?
