Dolce Far Niente
When I arrived at the Chen Sea five years ago, I could not take off my mind that this Resort was the ideal place for the “Dolce Far Niente” It was obvious then to me, and it is still, that some spots on our planet are tailored for this noble activity, and the Chen Sea is one of them.
So what is this “Dolce Far Niente” that even licensed clinical psychologists declare as paramount for your balance and happiness. Well the definition of my dear Merriam-Webster dictionary is not fun at all: “Pleasant relaxation in a carefree idleness” I am not an academic, I cannot compete with that. Literally it means: sweet doing nothing”, and it starts to sound better. Sweet idleness sounds better as well, but the meaning is “sheer indulgent relaxation and blissful laziness”.
Even better, I prefer: “the Art of enjoying doing nothing” It sounds so beautiful. For me, it sounds like luxury. There should be an understanding that we are not talking about doing nothing like in laziness. Doing nothing in this context is an event in and of itself.
“Dolce Far Niente” should be a privilege moment that you share, like with your loved one, so to indulge yourself in activities that you have no time to handle in your everyday life, especially when glued to a social media.
The pleasure to sleep, rest, recuperate, contemplate nature, or a sea eagle going fishing, a hornbill calling his mate as it is time to join back the nest, sipping a cocktail as you watch the sunset and listen to the small swell, eating sane and tasty food (like Foodies do), breathe non polluted air and feel what is then happening to your lungs. Enjoy a walk, a swim, a Spa treatment, a nap in a hammock, enjoy what you never have the time for
This is “Dolce Far Niente” and the Chen Sea has been conceived for this noble activity. Indulge yourself in the Art of doing nothing, there is so much to do and enjoy.
