Hello again! Gosh, these weeks fly by!
We’re experiencing marvellous weather for this time of the year. If you’re not here, you really are missing out. We’re taking advantage of it by painting and varnishing as much as we can so that all the main work is done if and when the monsoon starts. Maybe it won’t this year. Or perhaps it will only visit us for a very short time. As long as it doesn’t come at Christmas and the New Year . . . we want our guests to really enjoy our new pool in the sunshine.
Richard and Tricia came to stay a few days ago and it was lovely to see them. We hadn’t actually seen Richard for twenty five years and hadn’t even met Tricia before, so there was a great deal to catch up on. The second part of their holiday was in a villa and they invited us to join them one evening which we did. It was rather grand with fantastic views and it was a real treat. We enjoyed a marvellous steak dinner cooked by the staff there and we are returning the favour this evening at Classico, one of the best restaurants in the village which has recently been refurbished, changed its menu and installed a pizza oven too, so lots to choose from. We’re very much looking forward to it. Actually, for the past year, Richard and Tricia have been running a boutique hotel/restaurant/bar in Singapore called Rabbit Carrot Gun which is doing very well indeed and we wish them continued success. Should you wish to stay in Singapore at all, I would heartily recommend that you stay there – it looks great on their website – www. rabbit-carrot-gun.com – and I bet that they’re marvellous hosts. We have promised ourselves a trip there at some stage, though when that will be I have no idea. Let’s hope it will be soon, although it is rather hard to leave paradise . . .
We’ve had a cancellation for Christmas. The poor guests have had some unfortunate experiences of late and, though they desperately wanted to come and stay, they really could not. They had booked two rooms, both very nice, each with a king size bed, one the pool side of the hotel and one the garden side. If any of you feel the urge to come and stay for the festive period, we are looking for at least a seven-night booking in one or the two rooms. It will be on a first come, first served basis, of course, though I wish you could all come to stay! Just send Robin an e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org or go on the enquiries page of this website.
Lots of good remarks about the pool, in fact many people feel as though it has been here for years as it fits in so well. We’re very pleased and hope you will be too.
That’s when you come here, of course. Get your diary out now and organise something. Send Robin an e-mail with your prospective dates and he’ll write straight back with our availability.
We’ll be waiting for you . . .
Until the next time, take very good care of yourselves.
