A young couple took a sweet revenge on two fellow holidaymakers who tried to reserve sun loungers by the pool for more than nine hours before even showing up. As they were holidaying at the Grand Barong Resort in Bali, Australians Thom and Lisa noticed two beds by the pool already had towels on them at the crack of dawn, although nobody was using them.
When they returned for a splash a few hours later they noticed the unattended beach towels, there since before 6.30am, were still on the loungers in the afternoon, unattended.
As unfurled towels normally signal the beds are taken, they didn’t touch them, thinking the owners had briefly left their seats.
The practice of hogging sunbeds is frowned upon by most tourists and plainly barred in many resorts.
Some holiday hotspots allow their guests to leave their seats unattended for no more than an hour.
The couple waited until 2pm before tossing the unused towels and taking the seats for themselves.
The owners, eventually showed up one-and-a-half hour later – and the Aussie couple said their reaction at seeing their seats taken was “priceless”.
Taking to social media, Thom wrote, as reported by the Daily Mail: “We woke up this morning [and] noticed towels already placed on the afternoon shade sunbeds.
“We went about our day and eventually arrived at the pool at 1pm to the beds untouched, nobody in sight.
“At 2pm we told pool staff we were moving the towels as nobody had been on them.

“We then waited until 3.30pm for them to eventually arrive and the realisation that their spots are gone, iPads and books in hand was priceless.”
Not only the young couple decided not to give up their seats, but they also asked others to take their spot once they decided to leave so as not to allow the sun lounger hoggers to use beds.
Lisa said: “We literally left and asked others to take them just to keep the pettiness going.”
The rude pair of hoggers appeared to have learned their lesson as the following day Thom reported the poolside chairs had been “free all morning”.
Thom and Lisa were celebrated on social media for taking a stand, with one person also praising them for not immediately occupying the seats but patiently giving the hoggers a chance.
