In 12 years, this is the very first time that any property of a guest was stolen. Sadly the guest is claiming that watches and phones etc. was stolen. The detective confirmed the only items reported missing was 2 laptop bags containing the laptops and 2 passports. Ivory Heights staff was very busy this evening entertaining all 18 in-house guests...
