A holiday helps to refresh, restart and rejuvenate you from your hectic lifestyle. A unique way to explore new places is to hop on a luxurious train ride to explore each city.
Belmond Ltd is launching Grand Suites aboard the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express in March 2018.
The Grand Suites features new levels of luxury accommodation with ensuite bathrooms, showers, Queen size beds and a living area. The historic train offering the ultimate luxury in style and comfort, named the Suites after the romantic cities that the train journeys through – Paris, Venice and Istanbul with the the interior designs reflecting the spirit of each city whilst staying true to the original 1920s art-deco design.
Grand Suites offer private transfer to and from the train where guests will be welcomed by their personal cabin steward available for all their on-board needs, including free-flowing champagne and private en-suite dining.
What’s exciting? Prior to the Grand Suites launch in 2018, Belmond has combined a journey on Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, with a two-night stay at legendary Belmond Hotel Cipriani, culminating in a lavish Grand Ball. It will be available from 2nd – 4th November 2017.
A classic one night journey from London to Venice, in a Grand Suite is priced at £5,500 (SGD9,724) per person.
Cities of Style
The spirit of each city is brought to life with thoughtful design touches in the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. The opulence and romance of Istanbul is celebrated with hand carved timber and embossed leather whilst the haute couture and gastronomic excellence of Paris is referenced with chic and elegant furnishings. The grandeur of Venice is interwoven with silk fabrics, hues of silver and grey hand crafted Venetian glass adorns the baroque style furnishings.
