The most outrageous hotel pampering ever

I came across this article online about some of the pampering you can receive at top hotels around the world. I'm not sure if I have been in the industry too long but a number of them don't actually seem that "outrageous".

The first is definitely the coolest in my opinion and I like that the Peninsula hotel in Hong Kong is mentioned as I used to make bookings there a few years ago.

The most outrageous hotel pampering ever

IT can be a tough call to cater to the whims of every traveller.
From luxurious touches such as helicopter transfers and pillow menus, to the whimsical, such as soap butlers and hammocks in the bathroom, some hotels are going the extra mile to satisfy.

These are the top 10 hotels with amenities so amazing you’ll never want to leave. The list was compiled by travel website TripAdvisor.

Sweet dreams

Who says bed-time has to be boring? At the Ritz-Carlton in Amelia Island, Florida, a pirate, a princess, and parrot can come to your room and surprise your children by reading them a bedtime story. Milk and cookies are also delivered.

Soap butler
At the Viceroy Riviera Maya at Playa del Carmen, Mexico, the concierge cut off pieces of guests' favourite soap, created in nearby Mayan communities. Scents change with the seasons, including melon in spring and cinnamon in winter.

Wheely-good service

A major drawcard for the Peninsula Hong Kong is its service that whisks guests off from the airport in a Rolls-Royce car. They are collected straight off the plane and escorted through immigration, with luggage carried for them along the way, of course.
