Think you’ve got what it takes to live the life of luxury (full time)? Sure, most people do. But it’s not all sipping champagne and getting massages poolside.  Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) is celebrating its 25th anniversary by launching a global search to find 25 new hotel inspectors to join its worldwide team of ‘secret’ agents. Now until August 31, they’re accepting applicants who think they have what it takes to become a mystery inspector.

The selected inspectors will be tasked with “Mystery Shopping” the independently-owned hotels that form SLH’s collection of over 520 luxury hotels in 80 countries around the world. Why is this unique? SLH’s Mystery Inspector program is the only hotel inspection program of its kind that uses real guests and their experiences to make sure that its member hotels come up to scratch. SLH Mystery Inspectors are professionals, made up of loyal SLH guests who travel frequently and incorporate their undercover assignments into their own travel plans, whether visiting a city on business, taking a family holiday, exploring the world in retirement or just traveling the world in style.

Currently SLH hotels are inspected rigorously as part of the criteria to join the brand, and once every 12-18 months thereafter.

Tim Davis, Global Director of Marketing at SLH says: “The fact that our inspection program is undertaken by SLH guests themselves is a real factor that differentiates us from other luxury hotel brands. These are real SLH customers talking about the things that really matter to them when on holiday or business and staying in a luxury property, not someone who inspects hotels for a living and is immune to what gives a hotel that exceptional ‘SLH feel’. SLH prides itself on the quality and unique experience that can only be found at independently owned properties, and the opportunity to become one of our undercover agents is an opportunity that should not be missed!’

To enter, send an email with an application up to 250 words telling the selection team why you’d make a perfect inspector, along with the name and location of 5 luxury hotels where you previously had a great experience, your name, address and occupation.

Sounds awesome, right?
