When you go on holiday and want to relax, the DOG TAG that these hotels make you wear can be very annoying. It may help your operation efficiency in some way but to a customer, it’s simply annoying. I asked this hotel staff to tie the dog tag loosely as I hate it and can remove

Dear Chinthaka004, your feedback is extremely valuable to us and we will utilize your response by continuing to focus on making each and every guest experience the best it can be. Some identification is necessary for each and every guest, we are currently working on a different type of wristband. We have adopted this measure to avoid difficulties in using the hotel facilities. However, we regret any inconvenience caused and as mentioned are looking already to the matter. We hope to be of service to you in the future! Sunny Regards Stephan Sandmann

Hi. I didnt use the spa on site. The shop on the beach (ASDA Tours) have a deal with the Spa just down the road. I paid 3000 rupee for a full body massage which lasted an hour and was excellent. Hope it helps.
