‘Sports buddy’ services are the latest fitness cult in hotels. Talented hotel staff members are paired with guests in order to offer up a huge range of activities, even in the smallest luxury boutique hotels.
This could mean anything from tennis with the hotel’s general manager, to trampolining with the executive housekeeper. Or for those in search of cerebral stimulation, perhaps a spot of chess with the head of F&B?
There’s even a Running Butler Service to help guests pick up the pace - perfect for those in training and to ensure that exercise in the parks is as comfortable as possible, the butlers will tend to the runners’ every need; from refreshing soft drinks to home-made protein snacks, followed by as aromatic bubble bath to soothe tired muscles on return.
