Saucy stag night row reaches boiling point

THERE has been some major fall-out from the Grand Hyatt Hotel stag night party thrown for Victor Mehra to mark his wedding to Frederique Deleage in Bali yesterday.

Hotel general manager Peter Jentes is said to have delivered a tongue-lashing to several senior members of staff including assistant food and beverage manager John Nielson over the bacchanal in the Drawing Room last weekend.

Mr Jentes was angry at the way he believes the Hyatt's smart image had been dragged down by the bra straps after Ms Deleage's hen party joined the stag party revellers.

Mr Mehra's nude tryst with two similarly-clad Thai strippers while he was handcuffed on a bed has already been well-documented.

But the well-lubricated proceedings, compered by former Life Dynamics man Chris Gentry, also included male guests standing behind a bed sheet with strategically-cut holes below waist height so they could be identified by a most unorthodox means.

In addition, blindfolded women were asked to identify the men by grabbing them in a vulnerable spot, while some of the women had items of underclothing systematically removed as part of a game, watched by startled members of staff.

Hotel spokeswoman Carina Chorengel refused to comment on whether any further action would be taken, saying ''no formal meeting on the issue had been held''. She added: ''As Ms Deleage said, they had wonderful fun and the party just happened to be held atthe Grand Hyatt''.

We understand Mr Jentes has ordered that all future bookings in private rooms in the hotel must be approved by him.

Incidently, a senior Royal Hong Kong Police Force detective told P.S. that given the presence of hotel staff at the stag night, charges of breach of the peace and gross indecency could have been laid against some of the men if police had raided the function room at the height of the revelry.
