Oct 30th 2012 8:21AM "This hotel provides some VERY well-paying jobs to locals..."
I did ask. The staff who has been there for less than two years earn $16.50-$26.50/week. The long term staff (outside of management) earn $41.25/week.
" Ask THEM if they'll feel better if the hotel closes."
Wrong question. Ask THEM if they prefer to earn a human wage.
You should be guillotined for paying a mere $500 a night. Now that would be a treat!
Oct 27th 2012 8:40PM BTW, I was referring to the Aman Jiwo resort some raving lunatic raved about in their comment. Don, you stayed at the far more modest Pita Maha in Ubud which is only $300-$500/night -- a mere $22,000/night (44 times) by Western equivalence. Hey, why would you give a crap? -- you were comped anyway. Weren't you?
