Fancy hotel

Coworkers liked to mess around.
The voyage from the departure point to our first destination took a whole day (trip time + time adjustment).  It was quite tiring to be crammed into such a small space with little walking room for such a long period of time.  Fortunately, our planner accounted for this as we made reservations to stay one night at a hotel upon arrival to rest up.  This hotel was the most expensive hotel that I have ever stayed at.  Even at the discounted business rate, it was at least 3 times more expensive than the fanciest hotel that previously I stayed at (5 times if compared to budget places).

The hotel had a gorgeous pool and the sea was visible right outside the pool.  The staff was friendly and spoke several languages to accommodate the guests.  There was even a person serving dates in the lobby.  However, security was very tight and all guests had to go through a metal detector and have their bags scanned.  We were technically not supposed to wander outside alone either.  Since the rest of the party was tired and spent the rest of the time resting, I did not to get examine what was outside of the hotel complex.
