Associates benefit from relaxing back massages at La Cabana

Chair massageOnce a week associates of La Cabana Beach & Racquet Club are invited to sign up for a back massage opportunity. The services of professional therapists are made available via a sign up sheet, as a benefit, for simply working at the progressive property.

Members of Housekeeping and members of the Food & Beverage department love it, as the therapist peppers the treatment with pointers about correct posture and relaxation techniques.

“It’s like an oasis of relaxation in the midst of our busy hotel environment,” they say.

The resort has also recently launched a healthy weight loss program appropriately called “A Time for Action.” The program was put together by the Health Club attendants focusing on ways to improve the health of their colleagues. A total of 20 participants signed up for the program, for the duration of 12 weeks, consisting of a complete workout at the Health Club, including the use of the sauna, the introduction of a special meal plan, Zumba classes, and a formal conclusion in the form of an organized walk, or a Caminata, in the local Papiamento language.

By the end of the year, the 20 participants will be able to not only look good but also feel healthy!

“We were looking for a hands-on approach to lifting spirits and building good,” says General Manager Joe Najjar, “and the massages fit right in with our philosophy of taking care of our employees so they can take care of our guests.”
