Belmond unveils tourism plan for 2018

After launching a series of award-winning design and renovation projects last year, Belmond revealed the details of seven highly distinctive developments across its portfolio of hotels, trains and cruises in 2018.

Beginning last month with the launch of three new Art-Deco Grand Suites onboard historic Venice-Simplon-Orient-Express, Belmond’s diverse range of designs honour timeless craftsmanship, celebrate heritage and tradition and look to the future working with innovative designers and local materials.

Lined up for the year is Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge in Botswana; Belmond Casa de Sierra Nevada in Mexico, a historic renovation of Belmond Cadogan Hotel in London and a luxury beach resort Belmond Cap Juluca in Anguilla.

“When you walk into a Belmond property you can feel the ‘soul’ of the place, and it’s our job to keep the soul and spirit alive with the design concepts. We are working with talented designers to carefully merge the genuine elements of the local culture with a modern-day relevance that resonates with our guest’s lifestyle and aspirations,” said Joe Ferry, Art & Design Director at Belmond.
