It all began in 1976 when the keys to the legendary Belmond Hotel Cipriani in Venice were received. A year later Belmond began collecting the carriages for the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, which launched in 1982 to whisk intrepid travelers to La Serenissima in style.
Belmond joined LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton in April 2019, reinforcing its place among the international leaders in luxury. For over 40 years it has followed the pioneering spirit and passion for authenticity to create and uncover some of the world’s greatest travel adventures. Today, Belmond collection includes one-of-a-kind hotels, trains, river cruises and safari lodges in stunning destinations across the globe. Each has an incredible story to tell.

Step abroad and anticipate the adventure of a lifetime. Journey through Europe in an art deco work of art, or soar through the Andes in modern luxury.

There’s nothing more romantic than a river cruise. A Burgundy boat trip calls for stops at sun-soaked vineyards, ancient chateaux and picture-postcard villages.
