From the hotel that will fly you by helicopter to a chateau for a private tour, to one that will track down a limited-edition handbag while you sit back and sip Champagne, these concierge offerings take service to another level
Guests of the Hotel Le Bristol can take a helicopter ride to the 17th-century Chateau de Vaux le Vicomte for a private tour. It's followed with a lunch on one of the terraces overlooking the formal gardens, before guests return to the hotel to stay in a decadent signature suite. From £670 per room per night for a superior double.
On the 18th green at the Four Seasons Resort Whistler players are met by a PGA pro to board a private helicopter for the (very) elevated 19th hole. A lost ball or two is inevitable. That's why the balls are. Executive King Suite from £336.
Before your stay at the Kristiania in Lech, the concierge will ask about your reading preferences before hunting down suitable books. From first editions to popular classics, there's no book too obscure. Children can use the service too (The Gruffalo is the most popular request to date). Doubles from £267 per night.
Private appointments at Matches and discounts at major department stores are two particular perks of the personal shopping concierge at The Mandeville. Shoppers start with a Champagne consultation before stylist, Charlotte Adsett (above), heads out to source that hard-to-find, limited-edition, sold-out piece. Men are catered for, too, with an opportunity for in-room tailoring. Junior suites from £396 per night.
No need to ask the concierge for a map - The PuLi Hotel & Spa has partnered with local tour guides to offer walks, runs and tai chi in the surrounding area. Corner Deluxe King from £595 per room per night.
