Along with the protective net, the hotel will be put up some guidelines warning swimmers not to try and touch any jellyfish, even if the jellyfish look dead. The guidelines will also provide, in case an unfortunate situation does occur, first-aid tips, such as applying vinegar to the affected area of the body to reduce itching and pain, as well as refraining from scratching the area, as scratching causes further irritation.

“There is no warning when such a thing could cause injuries because this is a natural event due to the change in the season and weather, so instead of waiting and trying to heal any injuries, it is essential to take precautionary steps to provide a safer area to our clients,” said Ingo Domaschke, General Manager of OZO Chaweng Samui.
