Butler service accommodation

When you hear the word butler you most probably picture the iconic English gentleman who serves members of the Royal family. But while the British tradition still exists in leading hotels around the UK, the butler profession has definitely evolved. Unlike the traditional butler, today's hotel servants operate in teams and specialise in specific areas in order to meet the most extravagant requests.

Some hotels feature technology butlers to support non-geek guests in mastering their computer needs. In others you'll find a bath butler who will concoct a unique aroma therapy dip to your specifications. And if you're staying in a beach hotel you might encounter a tanning butler who stays on the beach and around the pool with nothing else on his mind than protecting the tender skin of guests.

If you want to experience a true English butler, you will be well served at the Ritz, the Connaught or the Lanesborough in London. Other famous European hotels with excellent butler services include the Imperial Hotel in Vienna, the St. Regis Grand Hotel in Rome and the Marriott in Moscow . The highest-rated butler hotels in the USA are the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel in Hawaii and the Fairmont Turnberry Isle Club in Florida . If you're looking for a more exotic holiday location with exceptional butler services you should try The Cove on the Bahamas, the One & Only Palmilla in Los Cabos, Mexico, the Burj Al Arab in Dubai, the Banyan Tree in Phuket, Thailand, or the Grand Mauritian in Mauritius.

Spoil yourself like a king and enjoy the benefits of personal butler service on your next luxury trip!
