There’s nothing so romantic as a river cruise. A Burgundy boat trip calls for stops at sun-soaked vineyards, ancient chateaux and picture-postcard villages. Marvel at gold-tipped temples topping the emerald banks of the Ayeyarwady River as you glide through Myanmar. Whatever you chose, sleek design, warm-hearted service and bespoke cuisine are the order of the day.
Belmond's story: It all began in 1976, when we received the keys to the legendary Belmond Hotel Cipriani in Venice. A year later we began collecting the carriages for the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, which launched in 1982 to whisk intrepid travellers to La Serenissima in style. Since then we’ve grown to a carefully curated collection of travel adventures, each with a rich story to tell.
Our collection of 49 iconic hotels, trains and river cruises in 24 countries brings together some of the world's most sensational journeys and destinations.
You'll find us in the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia. Stay in timeless hotels in Venice, Rio and St. Petersburg, or embrace the spirit of adventure at Machu Picchu or Angkor Wat. Glide along the rails through the Swiss Alps, soar across the Andes, or explore the mystifying rivers of Myanmar.
