Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond The Lobby | Series 5 Preview (BBC Two)
Monica Galetti and Rob Rinder travel to Kasbah Tamadot in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. With Sir Richard Branson as their boss, they discover how genuine Berber hospitality and spectacular views of the landscape make it unique.
Monica helps the chef source local produce at the nearby market and gets to know a very famous visitor, while Rob mucks out the hotel stables and guides guests on a mountain trek.
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.”
Adeline Ramage Rooney, Executive Producer, says: “We are beyond thrilled that Rob is embarking on this brand new series of Amazing Hotels alongside Monica. As an outsider to the hospitality industry and mega fan of the finer things in life, Rob brings an authentic sense of wonder and a fresh new perspective to one of our most popular series. We can’t wait to share eight glorious new episodes with audiences soon.”
Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond The Lobby returns Sunday 6th August at 8pm on BBC Two.
