Every detail in every room of the hotel, even the bathrooms, has been carefully chosen to give ita fun and unique atmosphere. 7 € In fact so much work fas gone into making each of the sixteen rooms special, itis difficult to believe that just one year before it opened the hotel was a run-down building ‘with a huge hole in the roof, After replacing the roof and planning a whole new interior, the owner, aptly named ‘Mrs Sparkle, began to totally transform the place. She says, “Tt was really hard work redecorating each room, ‘making the curtains, painting the walls and restoring old furniture; but it was fun as well” Now that the work is finished and each room has its own make believe theme, she has no doubts that it was defintely worth the effort. z F ‘Mrs Sparkle always dreamt about living in a doll's house and she is very happy that she has been able to turn this fantasy into a reality. “Now I just want to be able to provide a place where other people’s dreams can come: true too,” she says. 3 D ‘There are certainly some amazing rooms to pick from. Guests can choose to stay in the Teddy Bear’s Picnic room, the Barbie room, the Ruined Castle room, the Dinosaur den, the Chocolate room or even the African den, which is designed to make you feel like you're deep in the jungle complete with toy monkeys and animal prints. All the rooms are stocked with toys and books so your children won't get bored, even if the English ‘weather lets you down, 4 a In addition to the fantastic guest rooms, Sparkles has ‘much more to offer its young visitors. Every time you ‘book a room you ean be sure that entertainment, most of which is organised by Mrs Sparkle herself, is included in the package. To give busy parents a break in the ‘morning, there is the games hour in the Sparkle’s den, a large play area, and in the evening, puppet shows and story-telling mean that there is never a dull moment. 5 5 Sparkles hotel offers a fantasy world for the whole family to enjoy.

Too good to true? Not anymore, Thanks to modern technology and ‘the miracles of science, this beach really does exist and i is ‘on the island of Kyushu in southern Japan, 7 D {na resort complex called Seagaia you will ind the Ocean Dome. The Ocean Dome contains, among other things, the worl’s largest artificial sea beside the biggest indoor beach. It is roughly the size of six football fields and has aan 85-metre shoreline. The soft white sand is actually made of crushed marble chips, which won't stick to your skin, and the water is salt free and chlorinated. The temperature of the water is kept at 28°C and the air is kept at 30°C. z E rege 1s The Dome has everything you would expect to find on a big tropical island: caves, waterfalls, small islands, palm trees and that’s just the beginning. There is a man-made voleano that erupts at regular intervals, waterslides, 2 wave pool and even a virtual reality raft ride where passengers are tossed, shaken and splashed with water. 3 ri ‘There is plenty to do for the whole family in Seagaia and, if you want a break from the beach, you can visit the ‘Lost World’ rainforest. This is a Jurassic Park style jungle full of artificial creatures and holographic pirates. “There is also a beach carnival held every afternoon with dancers and musicians dressed in colourful Caribbean ‘costumes and in the evening there is a spectacular show put on by aquatic dancers. 4 5 {In Seagaia you don’t even have to earty any money with you.

In fact, many Japanese businessmen and office sworkers come here just to relax and unwind after a hard speek’s work. 5] pees 7 Naturally, no island holiday is complete without luxury hotels, boutiques and a wide variety of restaurants with Sverything from fine dining o fastfood, and Seagaia has them all. There are even several theatres, golf courses and tennis courts. The Ocean Dome feels so real that Wsitors to the resort still use suntan lotion and wear sunhats even though the ‘sunlight’ is artificial and harmless, fe A ‘The Dome itself actually has a roof that opens but itis only used when the weather outside is at the same femperature as the weather inside the dome. It is also Guite ironic that the Ocean Dome was built only 300 metres away from the real ocean, Strangely enough, the real beach is usually quite empty even on hot and sunny days because holidaymakers seem to prefer the safety, comfort and predictability of the artificial beach, 7 H = eee ‘Nowadays, theme parks are springing up everywhere and. it looks like virtual reality holidays are going to be the way of the future.
