10:00 We enjoy a Zen moment at the terrace with spectacular views to tropical gardens and the beautiful Asian-style pools. After working out for one hour, we take a relaxing rain effect shower and order breakfast at the terrace. A really inspiring moment to reconnect body and mind after a workout session.

11:30 On our way to the pool, we are driven to look over the spectacular Asian vegetation with a relaxing walk. The many lakes that give a curious Southeast Asia aura to the hotel are embellished by beautiful pink, yellow and white water lilies. These water plants open during the daytime and close during twilight, so there is nothing better than enjoying them in broad daylight.




12:30 Relax by the sun. While the children go to the Miniclub to attend a golf class, we decide to enjoy the environment of privacy of the Thai Club. A small, exclusive paradise reserved for Suite customers, with two swimming pools and a spacious sun bed area with permanent PR service, daily newspapers and drinks and à-la-carte meals service.

15:00 Although it is hard for us to leave the sensation of enhanced exclusivity of the Thai Club, our luxurious room is waiting for us. A short nap is a Mediterranean custom we can´t reject.

11:30 Although it is hard to leave the dreamy Udaipur terrace, after breakfast, we decide to explore the hotel through a tour around Asia Gardens´ icons. First, we go to the hall, where we can find the highest gazebo in Europe. We feel like we have travelled to asia due to its exquisite Oriental decorations, incense smells and relaxing Zen music. Here we find the famous wood fish, a Chinese kimono from Jin Dynasty, Vietnamese-style pai-pai ceiling fans and the elephant that yields to the incredible garden with over 300 Asian species. Outdoors, we discover the amazing Faces of Angkor and the iconic wood canoe by the Langkawi pool.

Its central Jacuzzi makes it another of Asia Gardens jewels. The wonderful views of the Mediterranean Sea cheer us up to order a refreshing appetiser on the deck chair.




14:30 It is time for the fist lunch at Asia Gardens and the Palapa restaurant is our choice. Booking a table at the terrace to enjoy the privileged views of the infinity-edge pools is a luxury we can´t let go. Here we leave aside the Asian spirit to enjoy one of the most representative Mediterranean dishes, a delicious Valencian-style paella.

15:30 There is nothing more appealing than resting in our beautiful Balinese-style room. We enjoy the exclusiveness that our Suite with a garden offers while the little ones play outdoors.

17:00 We have an appointment for the delicious tea tasting that takes place every day at this iconic time. It will give us the extra energy we need to enjoy the rest of the day. Before attending the afternoon tea, we take the kids to MINICLUB, where they will plant new Oriental vegetal species in the eco vegetable garden.

18:00 This is a must if you want to live Asia to the fullest. The traditional Thai massage is Asia Gardens´ identity mark. We book a 120 min. Nuad Thai that let us enjoy an unforgettable sensory experience. The melody, the smells and the pressures over our body take us to an unknown state of relaxation at sunset.




20:00 As good Asian food lovers, we take part in the Asian Cookshow, where we discover new flavours of the Oriental cuisine. One of the hotel’s chef will prepare, together with us, various speciality Asian dishes that we are sure we will prepare again in the future.

21:00 After the Asian Cookshow, we go for a marriage of sushi and the best European champagnes at the terrace of our Champagne Bar, the perfect temperature and a unique environment.

22:00 We hire the Mini-Dinner service for the children and we go to the In Black restaurant. It is consider the most exclusive restaurant at Asia Gardens and it doesn´t disappoint. We enjoy a delicious dinner in an intimate environment. Our choice for tonight is tuna fish tartar with citrus essence followed by boneless rack of lamb. It is mandatory saving room for dessert, the pineapple and fennel infusion with coconut sorbet is wonderful.

00:00 The rest of the world is already far away and we literally feel in Asia. Resting between 300 Egyptian thread count sheets is the closing we needed for an unforgettable day.

Traditional Indonesian clothing

Today in the luxury hotel in Alicante Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa we are dressing up to tell you about traditional Indonesian clothing. Are you joining us on this journey?

Due to the influence of multiple cultures throughout the years, Indonesian fabrics have been recognised as the most sophisticated and high-quality ones in the world.

As a multi-diverse country, Indonesia has a wide range of fabrics; each region uses different designs, colours, materials and techniques. Each fabric is known for the technique used in its creation, such as Batik or Ikat. Each design has a particular symbolism, reflecting specific believes and customs.

Traditional Indonesian clothing is usually worn is rural areas; it is not very common finding people wearing these clothes in the big cities. The two main garments are sarong and kebaya.

Sarong is a large tube or length of fabric, often wrapped around the waist and worn by both men and women. There are different colour and design fabrics, saving the best ones for special occasions. Sarongs are made through the batik technique.

Kebaya is the Indonesian traditional blouse. It is usually a button-up long sleeve shirt. It is a very tight garment and it has no collar. Traditional kebaya is semi-transparent showing the torso, so people cover it with a long fabric called kemban or a corset.

The Ati-Atihan festival

At the luxury hotel in Alicante Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa we always find time for a celebration. Today we are taking you to the Philippines to celebrate the famous Ati-Atihan festival.

The Ati-Atihan is a carnival festival celebrated every year in January in Kalibo, in the Philippines. It is held in honour of the “Santo Niño” (Baby Jesus), it takes places two weeks right after Epiphany.

It is one of the most important and traditional Filipino celebrations. The first Ati-Atihan took place over 700 hundreds years ago. It lasts for a week, ending the third Sunday of January.

The last three days of the Ati-Atihan festival are the most cheerful ones. The Friday mass in the morning gives way to the celebrations on the streets, where people won´t stop dancing until dawn. Sunday begins moving the statue of the “Santo Niño” from Kalibo Cathedral to Pastrana park, where an outdoors mass is held. The festival ends with a huge evening parade.

Besides traditional dances and music, something remarkable about the Ati-Atihan is that people paint their faces with black soot and other paintings. Additionally, special costumes are worn during the last three days of celebration.

Traditional Korean painting

The Asian continent never stops surprising us at the luxury hotel in Alicante Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa. Today we are travelling to Korea to find out more about traditional Korean painting.

Korea has a history of more than 4,000 years, but it was in the 3rd and 4th century when traditional Korean painting started to be developed. The first paintings were the murals on sepulchres until the 15th century when paintings on paper and silk first started.

From the beginning, due to the materials and the time needed for its learning and perfection, Korean painting was only performed by nobles and high society. However, throughout the years, it became accessible for everyone.

Lines and beauty of space are very important for Korean painting. It is related to nature and it is known for its elegance. The main materials used are paper, silk, paintbrush, ink and natural colouring.

The main theme for Korean painting is sagunja, which is comprised by four plants and flowers: orchid, bamboo, plum and chrysanthemun. The four gracious plants also represent the four seasons.
