I have been travelling to the Atantis for many years. The Mandara Spa has gone thru many changes over time - removal of the amazing thalosotherapy pool which was amazing. The most ridiculous policy of late is that women are not able to choose a male therapist for their massages. There is no spa in the world that has this ridiculous prohibition. Of course, men can select either a male or female therapist. Isn't this gender bias? According to rumours, this policy evolved because a guest chose to have an inappropriate experience with her male therapist. I am still not sure why Mandara feels that all of their female guests will behave in this manner, but it is completely insulting. Once I have paid for a service, I expect to be able to select the most competent therapist not be subjected to some ludicrous policy enforced by someone with a limited focus. I will never go there again, but this just to advise women who are looking to have the best massage experience with the most competent therapist that this will not be available because of your gender. Wake up, Mandara! This is not the Dark Ages. You should not punish entire gender because of one bad experience.
