Most Surprising Amenities offered by Luxury Resorts – Living the High Life Indeed

As the number of high-end tourist establishments increase, they compete relentlessly to outdo one another in terms of luxury, resulting in the provision of some surprisingly over-the-top services.

A Butler Dedicated to Helping You Tan

A Butler Dedicated to Helping You Tan

Certain luxury resorts in the US such as the Ritz-Carlton in Miami, have what is called a dedicated 'tanning butler'. This employee's job is to go around the pool decks, helping guests evenly apply the most suitable tanning lotions. Tanning butlers are also said to cart around items ranging from sunglasses to sun cream around the pool area for use by guests.

Plush Bathrobes That Have Your Name On Them

Plush Bathrobes That Have Your Name On Them

At a hotel in Madrid, guests are greeted by a plush set of luxurious bathrobes which have their initials sewn on them. These personalised delights which come wrapped with red ribbons and adorned with a lone rose, lie in wait to welcome guests as they enter their rooms for the first time. Although this gesture seems like quite a simple one, it seems to satisfy on quite a primal level – after arriving in a new place, far away from home, these monogrammed bathrobes make people feel special and at home.

Mystics for Your Furry Friends

Mystics for Your Furry Friends

While pet day care centres and spas are not uncommon in many upscale establishments, some have taken things a step further by introducing psychics and psychologists for pets! They also tend to offer treatments such as acupuncture and massages, in addition to the usual offerings that include extravagant bedding and high-quality food. Some resorts even have pet room service which delivers gourmet meals as well as toiletries. Talk about indulgence! It wouldn't be surprising if pets got better treatment than their owners at these resorts.

All That Glitters, is, in this Case, Made of Gold

All That Glitters, is, in this Case, Made of Gold

Fancy a 24 karat gold iPad? That's what guests get on arrival at the Burj Al Arab for use during their stay, to help them book services and access resort-related information. If guests feel that this unique iPad is worth its weight in gold, they are free to purchase their own one at the resort's boutique, at over $10,000 apiece. Leave it to Burj Al Arab to take luxury to a whole new level. While to some, gestures like these may seem overmuch, to those who can afford it, perhaps it just all part of the game.
