Ask Not What Your Butler Can Do For You: He Already Knows


Personal Butler Service.

Sounds interesting, doesn’t it?

The highest tier of rooms at nearly all Sandals Resorts come with personal butler service, as well as all the Club Sandals amenities. Yes, in this day and age, that’s a bit hard to get your mind around.

Before we tell you all about Sandals butler service, we’ve got a special announcement. Jennifer will be hosting Southern Girl Travel’s first ever live event – it’s called A Caribbean Night: Fun Included. Check out the Facebook Event page, and stay tuned for more info.

Let’s check out a quick video to introduce the idea:

Stories abound about what Sandals butlers are willing to do for their guests. Here are a few from the official Sandals website:

There was a guest who arrived who had just had her baby six months prior, having been a first time mom she missed her daughter dearly and this made uneasy during her stay. Her butler, sensing this, called her mom back home and requested photos of the baby. The butler received six photos of the baby, bought some frames and placed them all over the suite. When the guest arrived back from the beach and saw all the photos her spirit was immediately lifted for the duration of her stay.

A guest went sailing every day, they always brought Red Stripe out with them. Knowing that they would be out of beers soon the butler got the rescue boat and bought an additional cooler of beers for them while they were still sailing.

Can’t you just imagine the sight of those baby photos or that skiff pulling up beside your sailboat with a cooler of ice cold Red Stripes?

Let’s go into a little more detail on Sandals’ butler service with a video from Antigua:
