There is something very special about being waited on hand and foot and I have to say I love it.
Good hotel butlers have it just right. Always there when needed but never in the way so as to feel your privacy is being compromised.
Some butlers go the extra mile and deserve to get mentioned in despatches. Mac, our butler at The Siam in Bangkok, more than deserves a mention.
Our picture shows him standing on the dock waiting for our boat to come in.
He never failed to greet us when we arrived back from a river trip. As we stepped ashore he would move forward with a cool refreshing towel, enquire if we had enjoyed our selves and then quietly fading away to discreetly follow while we moved towards our room just in case while on the way there we should need him
Now that he is not here, I really miss him!
