With Travel Pass in hand, here are a few ideas to start planning your next getaway, from Anguilla to the Iguassu Falls or Botswana to France. Belmond offers a range of experiences to enjoy the simple pleasures of travel, reconnect with nature, celebrate with loved ones and meet with Belmond’s local personalities.
Enjoy the Simple Pleasures: Dive into the turquoise waters of Maundalay’s Bay for an early morning swim before breakfast at Belmond Cap Juluca in Anguilla. Retreat to the gardens at Belmond La Residencia in Spain for an intimate, seasonally inspired dinner for two surrounded by the aroma of orange blossoms and lemon trees.
Reconnect with Nature: Take a helicopter ride above the Okavango Delta to witness the river at its highest water level in 50 years with Belmond Eagle Island Lodge. Walk through the Iguassu Falls before the national park is open to the public with Belmond Hotel Cataratas’ First Light walk, complete with Leica binoculars to spot the birds and wildlife.
Celebrate the Good Times: Belmond Royal Scotsman, the veritable house party on wheels, is available for a private buyout with bespoke itineraries through the Highlands and islands of Scotland. For the ultimate slow travel, Belmond Afloat in France, a fleet of seven river barges, offers total seclusion for multi-generational family vacations along the canals of France – with stops to bike ride through villages and enjoy private tastings at vineyards.
Belmond’s staff is at the heart and soul of the guest experience and is preparing to welcome guests once again. Travelers can look forward to La Tia’s handmade tortillas each morning at Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa, gardening classes with head gardener Anne Marie at Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons and learning how to make the perfect Bellini with head barman Walter Bolzanella at Belmond Hotel Cipriani.
“We are looking forward to the moment when we can welcome back our guests from around the world with true Belmond hospitality – showing them the warmth and care that they desire and adding a little magic to their lives. Until then, we will keep the dream alive and nourish the desire for travel and adventure. We believe there will be a craving for cherished luxuries that they have missed during this time – such as that perfect moment at sunset sipping a perfectly chilled aperitivo overlooking Portofino from the terrace at Splendido.
“We will create the space and privacy for our guests to enjoy these moments, from private balcony banquets to Good Living experiences in our gardens – and of course, we will add sparkle to their experience with our Champagne moment,” commented Arnaud Champenois, SVP Brand & Marketing.
