Looking for an adult only all-inclusive resort with butler service? Here are the 5 best butler service resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico plus a suggestion for the ultimate in pampering and butler service in Tahiti.
Sandals Royal Plantation – This 74 room gem is 100% oceanfront, ocean view butler suites with peacocks strolling the manicured gardens, afternoon tea on a shaded verandah, top rated spa, caviar bar and butlers offering champagne or spritzing guests lying by the azure sea. Butler not close enough to hear your thoughts? No worries, he or she is on call at the touch of a button!
The vibe at Royal Plantation is decidedly chill but when it’s time for action, guests enjoy a plethora of complimentary water sports or head to the 18 hole golf course where greens fees are free for Sandals Resort guests. Also complimentary are resort hopping privileges at Sandals Ochi, which BTW, provides some of the most affordable butler service accommodations anywhere. No wonder “The Bachelor” chose these resorts for his very special proposal!
Iberostar Grand Bavaro – This stunning adult only all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana is built around a magnificent lagoon fronting miles of white sand beach and turquoise water. Every opulent room features a marble bath with jacuzzi for two and walk in rain shower, luxurious linens and pillow menu, elegantly furnished sitting area and fully stocked minibar.
At check in butlers meet with guests and offer assistance with restaurant reservations, tee times and spa services and butler service is available throughout your stay. Noteworthy resort features include a wide range of organized activities, golf course, shipboard bar and oceanfront ocean view exercise facility with top of the line equipment.
El Dorado Maroma – An intimate boutique hotel tucked away on the peaceful Mexican Riviera, El Dorado Maroma is the antithesis of sprawling mega resorts. Low rise buildings are built near the sea and beach butlers serve tropical drinks and snacks to resort guests lazily ensconced in comfy beach beds. Soon butler service will be expanded dramatically when the resort opens Mexico’s first overwater bungalows called “palafitos” complete with private pool, outdoor shower, 24/7 room service, private restaurant and more. Wow!
Sandals La Source Grenada – One of Sandals newest resorts, and one of its best, Sandals La Source has a number of unique butler service suites plus excellent service provided by a top quality team under exceptional management. Our favorite butler suites include the SkyPool in the Italian Village, South Seas One Bedroom with Private Pool and South Seas Rondoval with Private Pool. All include the service of a guild trained butler who attends to your every need day or night. Grenada also earns a “best food” vote with specialties enhanced by locally grown spices and creative preparations offered in a wide variety of restaurants.
Paradisus La Perla – Modern with generous sized junior suites, this adult only all-inclusive resort is one of the few in Playa Del Carmen to offer personalized butler service. With Royal Service, you will not only enjoy a butler to discreetly attend to all your needs, but a private lounge for check in and check out, ala carte restaurant for breakfast and lunch exclusive to Royal Service guests, private pool with swim up bar and private beach area. And while you relax poolside, your butler will bring the mojito of the day. Finicky about your food, no problem! This resort can please even professional chefs, as we have sent them with glowing feedback. Butler service, elegant resort, Playa Del Carmen location, this adult only all-inclusive resort has it all!
St Regis – While not an adult only all-inclusive resort, St Regis Bora Bora is decidedly adult oriented and meals can be included as part of a vacation or honeymoon package. At St Regis Bora Bora, the superb service begins with check in on a private yacht and continues with butler service greeting upon arrival. In fact, butler service has been a hallmark for years at St Regis and we suspect an inspiration to many other resort groups such as those mentioned above. Dining at St Regis is as inspirational as the exotic Tahitian setting with Lagoon by Jean Georges setting the bar with Villa Mahana for best restaurants in the South Pacific.
So if your travels take you to the Caribbean, Mexico or Bora Bora and butler service is on your wish list please call or email for further assistance. We’ve stayed at all the resorts recommended plus many more and would be delighted to help you plan the perfect, pampered getaway!
