Travelling around the world in a weekend and piercing time zones rapidly back and forth means that the Sybaritic Single has no time to develop proper desynchronosis, also known as jet lag. Whining about having it is similar to complaining that the world does not revolve around us. A much better travel habit is to keep record of luxury hotels that have adjusted to operating in the the age of frequent air travel which is means having a 24-hour gym, 24-hour breakfast and club lounges with round-the-clock Champagne service.
He also admires one particular brand standard of The St. Regis: the moment a bedside telephone rings to wake one up, a butler is already waiting outside the door with tea or coffee, a pastry and a newspaper. On a couple of occasions, this thoughtful, truly personal service saved the Sybaritic Single from falling asleep again and missing a flight.
Today, he went even further and expects such convenience at all luxury hotels with butler service: ensure that he gets out of bed with a wake-up call which coincides with a sip of ultra-brut Champagne and some raspberries. Some say a glass of bubbles every morning is the secret to a long life. To the Sybaritic Single, it’s just another facet of luxury travel without jet lag.
