Belmond has unveiled a new cabin category aboard the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, eight new Suites will join the rake from June 2023, bringing new heights of luxury and comfort to the original legend of the rails.
Two original carriages have been restored by expert French craftsmen and designers, who have reimagined the spaces on board the train whilst maintaining their golden era of travel look and feel. The design immerses guests in an experience that bridges the train’s iconic history and modern comfort. The new Suites have the added benefit of a private marble ensuite bathroom as well as a lounging area by day converted to either double or twin beds, by night.
For the epitome of luxury, a stay in a Grand Suite comes with a private en-suite bathroom and shower, double beds that can convert into twin beds, as well as a living area from which to enjoy the delights of private dining experiences, 24-hour cabin service and free-flowing champagne.
