Great things can stem from just a single moment. One decision can change the course of many lives. Life Butler, the brainchild of Managing Director Alexis Vincent along with his wife Claudia Perucchini, blossomed from Alexis’ realisation that he needed to share his new-found love of life. It was not a realisation that came easily; Alexis’ journey to his all-important moment of clarity was one of personal anguish, fear, transformation, alignment and ultimately great insight.
When Alexis and Claudia walked into a Pilates class in Bali four years ago, little did they know it was the beginning of a special friendship and working relationship with their teacher Gypsy. Gypsy is now one of the key team members of Life Butler, sharing her passion for yoga and Pilates with clients. We sat down with Gypsy to find out a little more about this fascinating woman, her background and what she brings to the team.
From the 11th to the 14th August 2018, you can step back in time on the magical island of Sark, an officially designated Dark Sky Preserve. By switching off your devices and embarking on a digital detox, you will discover a new kind of light, immersing yourself in nature. With no cars or street lighting, Sark is one of the best places to view the starry night sky. Over seven thousand stars and planets are visible to the naked eye here, the Milky Way stretching like a ribbon across the black horizon.

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.
A superyacht may be a floating palace exuding beauty and luxury, but we all know that the real temple is our own body. Today wellness is more than a global trend, it is a movement and way of life, with people more aware than ever before of its importance.
Mention Cuba; and images of a beautifully timeworn land of classic cars, outside brightly coloured dwellings, in grandiose colonial squares immediately spring to mind. What a few people automatically picture is the rich un-spoilt ecosystem that exists beneath the waves of its sublime coastline. Here there is a new horizon for Superyacht charters to discover everything that diving in Cuba offers.
