Sandals Butlers

The Butler Did It…A day in the life of a Sandals butler

A day in the life of a Sandals butler

Nothing short of absolute perfection will do. Butler Elite service, only at Sandals’ highest level of suites,  promises a supreme standard of service and luxury. At Sandals Royal Barbados, a personal butler, trained in accordance to the exacting standards of the Guild of Professional English Butlers, is with you every
step of your vacation to cater to your every whim and anticipate your every need.

11:02 AM When guests arrive at the resort after a long flight, I greet them with a refreshing glass of
champagne and a warm lemongrass-scented hand towel.

11:20 AM After escorting guests to their suite for a comfortable and quick in-suite check-in, I supply them with a cell phone, so they can reach me at any point during their stay. I offer to unpack their luggage or have any clothing items pressed, taking pride in making guests feel at home.

  

12:35 PM Lunchtime, and my guests have opted to dine at their private beachside cabana. After serving lunch, I restock the  private cooler with their favourite cold drinks and bring fresh towels, so they can relax and enjoy the sun and sand all afternoon.

2:00 PM It’s my job to review preferences of returning clients, so I can anticipate a guest’s every desire. Special delivery! I surprise them with their favourite signature cocktail, delivered right to their beach lounger before they even ask.

2:48 PM Earlier in the day, I made a spa appointment for my guests, and now it’s time to escort them to the Red Lane Spa for a relaxing couples massage. Whether it’s dinner reservations, tour bookings, or property activities, I facilitate all of my guests’ appointments and requests.

6:45 PM I’ve arranged a romantic sunset dinner on the beach for two.

8:10 PM Just before my guests finish dinner, I prepare their suite for turndown. A couple of finishing touches – a rose petal bubble bath, plus champagne and strawberries – and the suite is ready when they are. Ask for Butler Elite the next time you book your Sandals vacation (sandals.com) and prepare to be  wowed.
