I usually don’t stay at places like this. I knew it would be an experience when, checking in to the hotel after arriving at the airport, the person greeting me handed me a map of the grounds.
Granted, I do like my fair share of nice hotels, especially those in Asia (great service, reasonable prices). But a resort, full of shops, restaurants, pools, beaches, and something like four or five gigantic towers housing some ridiculous number of people? Who needs to leave the hotel grounds at a place like this? The place nearly reeks of crass commercialism.
The view from the balcony’s not bad, though.
