You will have two butlers. You can adjust upwards or downwards from the $20 per day per butler as you wish depending on how much you feel each butler does for you.

two butlers will cover for each other during your stay , but only one at a time so 7 days equals 140 u.s. cash to split between them

Regarding the butlers, most days they both work - one the first part of the day, the other second part. And on the days that one is off, the other works all day - from about 7 AM to 10 pm.

I disagree with the previous poster - $140 to split between two is definitely not appropriate; and to be blunt, frankly sounds like the cheap way out. If someone is thinking that it's too expensive to tip a butler a typically accepted amount, then perhaps booking a butler room is not the way to go for that traveler.

I agree with Winnekini. We tipped our butlers $125 each and figure we had them for about 6 days each. Remember that the butlers do ALOT for you whether you ask them to or not. If you can afford a butler room, do the right thing and don't cheap out on the tip...
