Beautiful Historic Grand Suites Aboard Venice Simplon-Orient-Express

Following a series of award-winning design and renovation projects last year, Belmond reveals details of highly distinctive developments across its unique portfolio of hotels, trains and cruises in 2018.

Beginning with the launch of three new Art-Deco Grand Suites on board 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.

“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.” Comments Joe Ferry, Art & Design Director at Belmond.

TRADITIONAL CRAFTSMANSHIP, EXQUISITE RESULTS – VENICE SIMPLON-ORIENT-EXPRESS, EUROPE

Three new private ‘Grand Suites’ launched last week aboard the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, creating new levels of luxury accommodation aboard the historic train. Named after the romantic cities to which the train travels, Paris, Venice and Istanbul; interior designs of each cabin reflect the spirit of each city whilst staying true to the original 1920s Art-Deco design.

Working with the very best craftsman including a traditional glassblower who has created the spectacular glass sinks and delicate light fixtures and famed mosaicist Jerome Clochard, an expert in the restoration of ancient mosaics, who piece by piece created the stunning patterns using marble, onyx, Venetian granite and Italian glass. Master atelier, Philippe Allemand has created the striking marquetry, an ancient skill that has passed through generations and has worked with the train since its restoration in 1997. The delicate process requires the layering of hundreds and thousands of exotic pieces of wood that are lacquered to create the most luxurious finish.
