Check in to some of the world’s most awe-inspiring hotels and discover the incredible lengths their owners and staff go to as they create the ultimate experience for their guests. Whether it’s a tropical mega-city employing thousands of workers, a hotel hacked from a frozen river or a glass lodge floating in a cloud forest, restaurant critic Giles Coren and chef Monica Galetti join the often-unseen workforce as they perform logistical miracles each day to anticipate holidaymakers’ every fantasy. Hotels featured include Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands, with 9,500 staff and rooftop gardens longer than the Eiffel Tower is tall, and Giraffe Manor in Nairobi, where guests share their breakfast tables with some very long-necked visitors.
