The sole priority of ‘Pink Rooms’ is the safety of women. It is started by a woman named Christe Jhonson, hailing from Switzerland and settled in Thiruvananthapuram, who has introduced these service apartments after she noticed instances of crime against women tourists being reported from the state capital.
Christe Jhonson, Director, Select Rooms says, “At ‘Pink Rooms’, safety of women travellers is given priority. Concept is part of woman empowerment where we’ve only female staff. We’ve made a space where women feel comfortable & safe. We give int’l standard professional services.” https://t.co/fLF2lol4un pic.twitter.com/QF9T7avZal
