I have completed the most recent (6 April 2017) hotel butler training course hosted @ Kurumba Maldives, and I must say that I loved it. I entered the course with just and idea about who a butler is, however, I finished the course enriching my knowledge about being a butler, in F&B department and learned many skills which we can use in our daily life. I will recommend this course by SABA to each and everyone, who has interest in being a Butler. This course not only teaches you, it helps to change your life into a positive life. Teaches you that simple and small things are what matters most. Teaches you to appreciate and thank people. A life changing, 'mind-boggling' course. An EXCELLENT training. �
I have attended to numerous training's and of them all, I can categorise this training as THE BEST. SABA transfers very positive energy to develop human capacity and it's more than worth attending to session. The hilarious humour along with a lot mindful technical knowledge and excellent hands on experiences given by very generous hearts made me to give five stars *****
Frankly I'm grateful for whole training.the training was definitely amazing and I'm so glad I was a part of this..Keep inspiring us through wonderful trainings like this.. Love you saba wholeheartedly
