You know those luxury places you see in magazines, those you think only exist in photoshop? Well, some of them actually do exist in the real world too. I knew what Dedon looked like long time before I knew where in the world it was located. Pinterest is a great way of tempting yourself with dreams you will most likely never see in real life, so who would have known that Dedon was going to be an exception? I was lucky enough to be invited for a tour around this breath-taking paradise of a resort. A stay in paradise has a heavy price tag, however, I have a strong feeling that you will soon be greatly satisfied with your clever investment when your relaxation level reaches unbelievable new heights. You don’t believe me? Well, I will more than gladly be your guinea pig! I have made it very clear for Toby that we have to start saving up so I can have my honeymoon at Dedon.
This is a ‘nestrest’. I definitely took too many photos of myself in it. That chair is the reason for why I started researching the Siargao island. This was not because of its price tag (over $11 000) or its adorable name, but because it made me realise that furniture can actually be art. It is funny how a piece of furniture can be the source of inspiration for traveling thousands of miles. This chair is therefore very special to me. It is a symbol of that nothing is too far away if you just have the will to take the first step. I hope this is going to be the mentality my friends and family, back home in Norway and England, will have when I move to my new home far far away. I’m that chair… Okay, I’m not as stylish or comfortable sleeping on, but still, I’m going to hang in a lonely tree waiting for someone to be willing to travel far just to swing into my world.
“A place to retreat, rejuvenate and return to the world in a barefoot state of mind” – couldn’t have said it better myself.
And here are some more nestrest photos, just because you can never get enough of the nestrest!
Again, thank you, Dedon and Morag, for letting me visiting your beautiful resort. I hope this is not going to be the last time we see each other.
