Travel Diary in Sanya: Day 1

Hey readers! Sorry, I’ve been MIA the past few weeks! Lots of things going on (terrible excuse) and I just got back from an amazing company trip with my Bullet Films Family in Singapore (expect some Travel with Jess posts from that!)

Travel with Jess is back and we are off to SANYA! I went on a sister trip with well obviously my sister a few weeks back! We were all set up to stay at the Sofitel Sanya Leeman Resort that just opened this past January thanks to Pernelle. I arrived a day early to enjoy the resort (basically my sis had to stay an extra day in HK due to work- so I had a FULL day all by mySELF!)

I arrived a bit after noon to a super duper warm welcome from the staff at the resort. Thanks for making my stay especially awesome!

I was all checked in and pretty hungry so I stopped into Hainan Pearl, the main Chinese restaurant in the hotel, for a quick and filling lunch. I was craving some char siu (and that’s just what I got!) The char siu pork had the besttttttttt sweet glaze perfectly painted on. It also had the perfect amount of meat and fat. I easily devoured these babies!

Some specialty crispy chicken which was simply delicious!! Don’t be fooled by this picture- it was a really big portion. I loved the crispy and crackling skin. Underneath that crunchy and crispy skin was a beautiful and juicy piece of chicken. So much flavor, juice and taste.

After that big lunch….I needed a bit of a break…

After a brief nap, a dip in the pool- I was back at the super frequented clubhouse…where I went a lot for a few glasses glass of wine and a lot of snacks! I loved how peaceful and relaxing it was. A great way to recharge and have some me time.
