Monica and Rob will discover the secrets of success at eight remarkable destinations as they work alongside staff, learning the tricks of the trade that the public never get to see.
Rob Rinder says: “I can’t wait to explore some of the world’s most extraordinary hotels and go beyond the lobby to meet the fascinating communities of people who run them in order to learn what it is that make them such once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Luckily, I’ll have Monica by my side to keep me in check.”
Monica Galetti says: “I’m very excited to have a new partner in crime to discover eight awe-inspiring locations. I’m looking forward to seeing Rob get stuck in when we roll up our sleeves to work alongside the dedicated hotel staff.”

We can’t wait to share eight glorious new episodes with audiences soon.”
