Instead, the intrepid food critic and chef roll up their sleeves to see what life is really like behind the glitz and glamor. Traveling far and wide to esteemed establishments including Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands and Nairobi’s Giraffe Manor, they experience first-hand the life of the workers who keep the world’s most impressive hotels delivering five-star service. Escape with Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond the Lobby and explore the parts of these palaces that guests never get to see!
