Take Advantage of These #1 Property Amenities

Today, properties around the globe are offering their guests a wide-range of exclusive and one-of-a-kind amenities.

The abundance of these unique services can make it hard for anyone to know which ones to take advantage of! So, to make it easier for you, here are three amenities you should prioritize and experience: The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah’s Art Expressions Experience at Bumi Duadari in Bali, The Saxon Hotel, Villas & Spa’s 24 Hour Butler Service in South Africa and The Chedi Andermatt’s Welcome Wine & Cheese Tasting in Switzerland.

The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah’s Art Expressions Experience at Bumi Duadari 

On the dramatic edge of a stunning valley above Ubud’s Petanu River, just 3 kilometers from the resort, The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah offers guests the exclusive opportunity to pick up a paintbrush and self-express in acrylic on canvas to your heart’s content.

Take inspiration from the surrounding tropical gardens of Bumi Duadari, the private estate of the Hadiprana family and the art patron owners of The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah. Art therapy offers an effective technique of self-expression and stress relief to urbanites around the world. Overseen by a local artist on hand to offer guidance upon request, Art Expressions requires no prior experience and was developed simply to share Ubud’s creative and artistic spirit. At Bumi Duadari, guests will also enjoy a leisurely afternoon tea at the open-air pavilion surrounded by lush flora and Hadiprana’s sculpture garden.


  • IDR 1,900,000 per person with afternoon tea
  • A 24-hour advance reservation is required
  • Price is subject to 11% government tax and 10% service charge

The Saxon Hotel, Villas & Spa’s 24-Hour Butler Service

The Saxon Hotel, Villas & Spa is an extension of your home. Available to all guests and families staying at the Hotel and the Villas, the 24-hour butler service will exceed all expectations.

Warm and personal consideration is evident from the moment you arrive. Efficient yet unhurried, the butlers are on hand at all times to assist with packing and unpacking, information and advice, personalized wake-up calls, evening turn-downs, and adding the final touches to the suites for your personal comfort. Personal shopping, travel arrangements or meet and greet at the international airport are all part of the exclusive and personalized experience. The property’s butlers are truly of a new generation, combining personal discretion with an efficiency that guests would expect.

The Chedi Andermatt’s Welcome Wine & Cheese Tasting

Nestled in the majestic Swiss Alps, The Chedi Andermatt is a modern Swiss chalet with an Asian twist. The full-service resort provides many unique amenities, but the top amenity to take advantage of is the Welcome Wine & Cheese Tasting with the Executive Chef, Dietmar Sawyere.

The tasting takes place in the property’s Wine & Cheese Cellar where you can savor your wine and cheese while being surrounded by over 40 different kinds of cheeses! In total, the value of the cheese in the cellar is over CHF 14’000! With this warm of a welcome, The Chedi Andermatt ensures the rest of your stay continues to exceed even your highest expectations.

We hope you take advantage of these top amenities offered at these incredible properties in Bali, South Africa and Switzerland!
