My name is Rakesh Boury and I am from Los Angeles. I work as CSTO for the google engineering team.
During my last vacation in Mauritius, i tried to find the best spa and I was referred to Royal Palm Hotel.
But when I went there a french lady was talking to me in french and she told me that the service was reserved for ‘foreigners only’ not for locals.!!!!. What does that mean?????. ‘Foreigners only in fact means people with white skin only’. Now i was thinking maybe next time i’ll bring my painter with me, maybe i would be able to stand a chance to enjoy their service.
I tried to convince her that I am not a local resident and I come from Los Angeles for my vacation and wanted to enjoy the spa service.
I was truly shocked to see how bad a star rating hotel service can be!. I have traveled almost globally but have never in my life come across such a bad service!!!. Well too bad for the lady she just lost her job last week since i did a complain to the US ambassador. I’m very sorry for you lady, my sincere apologies. If ever you are travelling to US, please do let me know I’ll perhaps buy a good villa for you and offer you a post as my personal spa therapist.
Never judge people by their colour of their skin as we are all born equal.
I really hope Royal Palm changes its policy regarding gender equality. Please employ the best staff for your services, don’t judge people based on their skin colour!. I am also writing this critic to my Travellor blog shortly.
Thank you and god bless.
We are really sad you had such an experience in one of the World Leading Hotels, Its aberrant to see that such mentalities still exists in our beautiful multi cultural society. Thanks for sharing with us and hope that you did enjoy your holidays on the island. Keep tuned to Indian-Ocean.com
