Our butlers often get asked insightful and thought-provoking questions, and they endeavor to find the answers. As part of this series, we are sharing some of these questions and shedding light on fascinating new topics, medical discoveries, and wellness themes.
At Life Butler, we believe passionately that a holistic approach to wellness is the best medicine life can offer. It is through combining all parts of our physical, mental and emotional selves that we can create a whole and fulfilled being. Our staff and butlers are always opening our minds and hearts to new wellness concepts, and recently one has captured our attention and inspiration: the idea of a wellness kitchen.
The era of transformative travel is upon us. Just a couple of years ago, experiential travel was the industry’s hottest trend. People wanted more from their holidays than a hotel or spa. They were seeking a deeper connection with the destination they were visiting and hoping to experience new cultures, to interact with the locals and feel like more than just a gawking tourist. Now, that trend is rapidly morphing into something deeper and yet more personal: transformative travel.
Our Butlers are the beating heart of Life Butler. It is their wisdom, passion, expertise, and experience that provide our guests not only with a personalised service but a heartfelt one. In this series we get to know our Butlers in more depth, giving you the opportunity to hear their voices and to understand from where their devotion to their skills has evolved. We hope that you’ll finish reading each of these profiles with a better sense of what our butlers can offer you. Here we meet Dr Sally Horrobin, Life Butler’s expert doctor of naturopathy, who shares her inspiration as well as some essential nutrition advice.

They are the epitome of relaxation and indulgence, pampering their owners and guests with top of the range décor and facilities, and the most impeccable standards in cuisine and service. What does it mean for this elite industry, then, when one of the biggest trends in wellness is sustainability? Here we take a look at the crucial link between environmental health and personal wellness, and how sustainability on superyachts is surprisingly very achievable.

There’s no feeling like it – the comforting wall of heat that greets you as you step inside a sauna.
Relaxing into the intense heat and allowing your pores to open and the sweat to pour down your body is a vastly therapeutic act, one which can have profound influences on your wellness. But just why is sweat bathing so good for you?
Superyachts are the epitome of luxury and relaxation. The immaculate décor and finest facilities are complemented by Mother Nature’s own paintbrush. Yet they are in danger of falling behind the luxury hospitality industry and the reason is the increasing demand for wellness.
