    My understanding is that it has Asian owners and Golden Door manage the entire complex as a Health Resort/ Spa which is excellent. Check with The resort itself.

    All the rates are polished on their website, and if you are unsure just call them and ask. They are very helpful and obliging and will not try to pressure you into anything.
