The Club Hotel Jersey Launches A 'Sunshine Butler' For Fashionably Pale Brits
The Sunshine Butler's grounds
In America, they have tanning butlers. In the UK, one is fashionably pale, so one has a “sunshine butler”. Or at least, one does when there’s enough sun to merit wearing sunscreen.
Yes, hot on the heels of the biggest heatwave ever (maybe), The Club Hotel & Spa in St Helier, Jersey, has recruited a Sunshine Butler to strut the terraces of the hotel, polishing sunglasses, administering suncream of various strengths, misting one’s face and feet with mineral water, and proffering iced towels and chilled watermelon.
That leaves guests to wallow on their sunloungers by the Mediterranean-style Pool Terrace, take a dip (once adequately creamed) in the pool, or enjoy that cocktail without being irritated by one’s hot and sweaty feet. What more could one need?
The sunshine butler’s name is Chris Barsan, a hotel staffer of several years who’s been selected for this important gig because of his “sunny personality”.
Rooms at The Club start from £99 including breakfast – not bad at all. The temperature in Jersey is a chilly 19 degrees and cloudy this morning, but it’s set to get hotter again as the week goes on.
