We had a beautiful sunset last night which was enjoyed by our guests at the Sunset Bar yesterday evening. Our guests from New Zealand and Italy were lucky enough to witness this amazing sunset, very dramatic. They spent a pleasurable hour, relaxing with cocktails and  watching the sea and sky changing colours. 昨晩、サンセットバーではとってもキレイなサンセットが見れたのよ。このとっても美しくてドラマチックなサンセットを楽しんだのはニュージーランドとイタリアからのゲスト。夕焼け色に染まり、変わり行く海と空を眺めながらのカクテルタイム。リラックスのひとときを楽しんだわ。
