I warn you now, reading this is highly likely to make you jealous so I apologise in advance!
From arriving at the hotel, to composing this postcard as I enjoy a alcoholic drink at the Rooftop Skies Stars Bar, Rome has actually been extraordinary. I narcissistically chose my name alcoholic drink, the ‘Sophie toffee … PLANET’. The adorable customised menu tells me it has been developed by Carlo, as well as what a terrific job he’s done– it’s a scrumptious mix of rum, cranberry, pineapple juice, peach tree, Malibu as well as even white chocolate foam! The stars are twinkling over St Peter’s Basilica, significantly lit distant, and also the idea of going residence tomorrow makes me wish to order another beverage (or three) so I can remain below in the balmy night for as long as feasible.
After at first checking in at the A. Roma Way Of Living Hotel, the outside pool was the first attribute to attract me. I stood out on my swimming cossie and also skedaddled to the sunbeds. Unusual statuaries are dotted around the resort premises– I was sunbathing next to a brass alligator, as well as contrary me was a hippo! Enclosed by the rich plant of the surrounding yards, the elegant pool gave a tranquil oasis, after browsing the journey from London to get to it!
My freckly English skin was soon pink from the extreme Italian sun, regardless of a charitable slathering of sun cream, so I took respite in the Wellness Day spa. There is an within swimming pool as well! Majestic marble walls, unique plants, and also imaginative sculptures with eccentric pink lighting made me seem like I remained in a sophisticated art installation. Developing a preference for the finer points in life, I was keen to find the various other glamorous Spa offerings. There were all the timeless day spa facilities as well as some I didn’t also understand existed: sauna bath, Finnish saunas, an impluvian, Roman saline water fountain, chilly fog showers, massage and treatment areas, a health and fitness centre and also posarium! Currently I recognize A.Roma is just a short trip to the centre of Rome, with numerous interesting historic as well as cultural sites to see, yet I would certainly have been rather pleased exploring the hotel alone for the week!
Nevertheless that indulging and also tanning, I had worked up rather an hunger! Supper was to be served in the Sapori dal Mondo dining establishment, where I was met the stress of functioning chefs, the smell of fresh food as well as flavors, and also snazzy multi-coloured lights. Unashamedly I stacked my plate high with classic Italian food, tasters of the American BBQ meals and also a side serving of noodles– there is every little thing you could want! After bing, it was most definitely time for a relax.
Collapsing onto the crisp, white sheets of my dual bed, I admired my space and felt extremely fortunate. Modern as well as trendy, there was everything I might require, and even a cheeky square window right into the shower room so I can admire the sleek shower from my bed! An intriguing touch!
The next day was for discovering Rome! After a brief stroll I popped on a tram as well as was at the Piazza Venezia in 20 mins! Throughout the remainder of the vacation I go about ticking the views of the Italian resources off my listing: the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, the Borghese Gallery, Vatican Gallery as well as a lot more. I made sure to have normal rest stop for creamy gelato and also massive pizza pieces– I was in Italy after all! When my legs were tired from roaming the city and the sun was calming down for the evening, I gladly returned to A Roma Lifestyle Hotel, knowing my comfy bed was waiting.
