Once 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.
â€œItâ€™s like an oasis of relaxation in the midst of our busy hotel environment,â€ they say.
The resort has also recently launched a healthy weight loss program appropriately called â€œA Time for Action.â€ 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!
â€œWe were looking for a hands-on approach to lifting spirits and building good,â€ says General Manager Joe Najjar, â€œand the massages fit right in with our philosophy of taking care of our employees so they can take care of our guests.â€
