How does it feel to live and work in the world's most beautiful and luxurious tropical island resort, surrounded by white sandy beaches and aquamarine seas? How does it feel to be in the lap of luxury when you're thousands of miles from anywhere else Continue

How does it feel to live and work in the world's most beautiful and luxurious tropical island resort, surrounded by white sandy beaches and aquamarine seas? How does it feel to be in the lap of luxury when you're thousands of miles from anywhere else? And when the guests are some of the richest and most demanding people in the world, where do you find the energy every day to smile, smile and smile again? "Beach Babylon" takes you behind the scenes at a five-star tropical island resort. Do all the stories which take place behind the closed doors of the exclusive spa have happy endings? What do the world's richest people expect from room service during their fortnight in paradise? What does the windsurfing instructor do to keep sane after hours? In the bestselling tradition of her previous "Babylon" books, Imogen Edwards-Jones investigates the rivalries and alliances between the staff at a resort where pandering to the guests' most extravagant whims is de rigueur. With a cast of millionaires, celebrities, hangers-on and prostitutes, "Beach Babylon" takes you to a world where extreme luxury is the norm and where excess somehow isn't always enough...

    The contents simply repeat themselves throughout the book, no excited "secrets" revealed, of course we all knew we got ripped off at the hotel, i don't think it worths mentioning. i found myself simply dragged on till the end of the book

    What's worse? there's a lot of typoes in this book

    a fun juicy read,though less appealing than Hotel Babylon and Air Babylon. Problems arise at the end of every chapter, magnetizing readers to move on to the next.an eye-opener for those who love "sunshine & beach".

    Give up. I've fed up with the repeated "prices are marked up here", the boring characters and all those internal operations that don't arouse my attention at all. I've read from Monday morning to Thursday sunset and found no reason for me to keep on ...(continue)

    Give up. I've fed up with the repeated "prices are marked up here", the boring characters and all those internal operations that don't arouse my attention at all. I've read from Monday morning to Thursday sunset and found no reason for me to keep on turning the page.

    Spending vacations in a beach would be interesting, but reading Beach Babylon is definitely not.

    Imogen is finally back to the world of entertainment business!
    I would say I enjoy this book more than Fashion Babylon.

    Better than Fashion Babylon, but Air Babylon is even better.
