A great place to start (or end) a trip...

How should we arrange for the hotel's shuttle to pick us up at the airport? Do we need to email the hotel prior, or is there a free phone from within the airport that we can use to call after we arrive? (We will be flying in from the US and won't yet have our own phone to use, so we are concerned about making contact with the hotel when we arrive.)
Hi Joy, Thank you for reaching out to us. Our hotel shuttle service operates 24 hours a day on demand. In order to be collected from the airport all you have to do is call us from the Free Phone located at the international arrivals hall (Dial 59 from the phone provided there). Once we have received your call, we will dispatch our driver down to collect you. We look forward to welcoming you soon. Kindest Regards
