As part of the plus size community that often sways towards the hate side of the Love Island debate because of the show’s infamous lack of diversity & inclusive representation, I hear a lot of negativity towards the whole thing but listen up; I have a solution with my own dream stay…
Reality Represented in Reality TV
Any other time, that would sound so far removed from the actual Love Island we know & love (or hate?) that even imagining such a thing would be a stretch but, given the right setting, Casa Amour 2020 could be a utopian safe space for all.
The largest space of all villas on the lavish Samujana Estate boasts every bit of luxury that the pampered Love Islanders could expect – including private infinity pool & jacuzzi, home cinema, games room & gym area – but opens its arms to embrace any perfectly imperfect people, like me, who just as worthy of finding love as the classically gorgeous ones.
Accessibility issues are catered for with five of the eight (!) lavish en-suite double bedrooms being located on the ground floor, single parents are welcomed with the inclusion of a cot (because love me, love my baby), & all safety issues are conquered by the 24hr security – in uniform, for that extra VIP vibe – to help keep the anxiety at bay.
There are plenty of cosy indoor & cool outdoor private areas for couples to have a bit of “alone time” as well as group date night ideas for the communal areas.
Instead of having outlandish colour combos & those neon lights to indicate where the boys go, where the girls belong & where the couples are allowed, Villa Busara is completely neutral in its decor with ceiling to floor nude tones.
These breathtaking interiors not only make it friendly to all genders & identities without the need of tired stereotypes like pink being “for girls”, but they also make way for same-sex couples & even a thrupple or two thrown in there – heaven knows those beds are big enough to welcome that.
Now that is diversity & inclusion. Welcome to my dream Love Island stay for 2020 – take note, ITV execs! Wouldn’t we all love to see a bit of that in both our holiday dreams & on our 9pm nightly TV slot?
Get Your Travel On
Ogling this not-even-hidden gem of a villa through online window shopping is as close as I am to a summer holiday – London & Spain are as far as I travelled last year with an imminent girls trip to Dublin next month, while the wrestlerman jets around to Germany, Austria, Italy, Pakistan for work. I know right, how the other half live.
But if any of this inspires you to visit Thailand (after binge watching aaaall the Love Island & other such trashy reality TV gold – sorry not sorry, that’s my forte!), check Clickstay for more travel goals for 2020:
