The employee strike has been settled

Great news from the hotel – the employee strike has been settled!

Last night at dinner – we could see sincere concern from the expatriate employees who wanted to see this end quickly as they realized what damage could be done if this continued on.

As I said in my previous post, the Conrad did a magnificent job of keeping the resort running at a bare bones by pulling employees from other sections of the island.

Now it’s time to return to relaxation!

PS Does anyone have a link or any information in regards to any upgrades you receive if you are a American Express Hilton Surpass owner? We received an email from the resort in regards to this prior to arrival but can’t seem to find it now and our island host was unaware of anything regarding this. Thanks!


  1. That’s great news that the strike has been settled, thanks for sharing.
    Amex Surpass Hilton card gives you automatic gold membership so you should qualify for all Gold level upgrades though they are different at this resort. But since you’re already Diamond, I don’t think there are any additional perks for having the card.
