Taipei, April 7 (CNA) Hotels in Taoyuan have introduced various measures to cope with
upcoming water supply cuts, including discounts for visitors who conserve water during their stays, as the nation’s worst drought for decades persists.
The Orchard Park Hotel has closed its swimming pool and spa services in the face of water rationing measures set to begin Wednesday. The measures will affect parts of New Taipei, neighboring Taoyuan and Hsinchu County on a rotational basis.
The hotel is offering discounts for guests prepared to stay in rooms without bathtubs and disposable toiletries and who do not use the hotel’s fitness center. Charges for such guests staying in a two-person room have been reduced to NT$2,900 (US$92.8) from NT$3,500 per night. [FULL STORY]
