Poisonous Fish Removal

The Concierge: Abdul Manaf, Four Seasons Resort Seychelles

The Arrangement: A Russian guest at this sparkling beach resort in the Seychelles recently demanded that the hotel remove a fish from the sea so he could be comfortable enough to swim. The offending creature, a lionfish, is indeed venomous, but it’s so common in these waters that divers specifically stay at the hotel for the chance to see one. This was explained, but “the guest was still not happy,” says Manaf, the hotel’s recreation manager. “In the end my staff had to spend a morning snorkeling the waters looking for the creature. We told him they had all swum away. Only then was he satisfied.”
