may be the most beau­ti­ful food that a lemon can be made into. Then, a waiter de­liv­ers a small piece of lemon mac­a­roon and you know the cake is not.

To sa­vor the fla­vors of the sea, be they metaphor­i­cal or lit­eral, try the baked sea bass with sea­sonal veg­eta­bles served in the Reef Restau­rant — a de­lec­ta­ble ex­am­ple of the ocean’s bounty.

The Reef also serves clas­sic lo­cal food. Lo­cal Wen­chang chicken is com­monly served with spaghetti with mus­sels and mari­nara sauce.

After lunch, why not take a nap, but in the spa, not on the lux­u­ri­ous bed in your room. Or burn off the calo­ries in the fit­ness cen­ter or one of the pools.

The swim­ming pool, with a T-shaped stage by the ocean, is a dis­tinc­tive venue for cou­ples look­ing to ex­change their vows against an ex­otic back­drop of panoramic sea views.

But should you wish to spend time in your room, why not?

De­signed by Thai­land’s fore­most in­te­rior de­sign prac­tice, P49 Deesign, the gue­strooms are in­spired by high fash­ion and ref­er­ence the color pal­ettes of iconic de­sign­ers, re­sult­ing in an eclec­tic col­lec­tion of rooms that em­body the style of Ital­ian El­e­gance, French Chic, Bri­tish Fab­u­lous and Amer­i­can Clas­sic.

The bath­room suite with a bath­tub by the win­dow pro­vides glam­orous ocean views and a cozy haven for the body.

At night, vis­i­tors can choose to revel in the in­fin­ity pool or a soft corner on the bal­cony’s sofa to sa­vor the fleet­ing time in this par­adise.

And when it comes time to de­part the fab­u­lous beaches of Sanya, the warm smiles of the staff serve as a re­minder of the is­land’s ever-present peace, which can be re­vis­ited again and again.
