Belmond Hotels, a name synonymous with luxury and adventure, traces its roots back to 1976 when they first took ownership of the iconic Hotel Cipriani in Venice. The subsequent year saw the beginning of their collection of carriages for the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, which commenced operations in 1982, providing a stylish journey for daring voyagers to the enchanting city of La Serenissima. In 2019, Belmond Hotels fortified its position as a global leader in luxury by becoming a part of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton. Over the past four decades, Belmond has been driven by a pioneering spirit and an unwavering commitment to authenticity, curating some of the world's most exhilarating travel experiences. Today, their portfolio extends beyond hotels to include distinctive trains, river cruises, and safari lodges located in breathtaking destinations worldwide, each with its own unique and captivating story.

At LuxRally Travel, we share Belmond's passion for creating unforgettable, authentic travel experiences. This shared vision extends to protecting the natural splendor and cherished local cultures that make each guest's stay uniquely special.
Belmond's forward-thinking spirit and aspiration to redefine travel's future are evident in their efforts to enhance the cultural, natural, and human heritage of their destinations. This ensures their timeless relevance for future generations.
Their "Think Global, Act Local" strategy emphasizes the value of local knowledge and recognizes the unique characteristics of each location. This approach empowers local teams to establish initiatives and collaborations that are most relevant to their surroundings and neighboring communities, thereby maximizing their impact across three main pillars:
Cultural heritage: Belmond strives to protect and advance heritage, including historically significant structures, arts, crafts, and cultural traditions that are essential to the tourism industry and the communities where they operate.
Natural heritage: Belmond champions sustainable food production in their restaurants, works to protect and restore the natural world, minimize the use of natural resources like water and energy, and ensures efficient waste management.
Human heritage: Belmond seeks to learn from and ally with the communities present in their operational destinations.
In 2021, Belmond intensified its sustainability efforts through a partnership with EarthCheck, a global leader in scientific benchmarking, certification, and advisory services for travel and tourism. This collaboration enables Belmond to monitor resources effectively, track improvements, and identify challenges in areas like solid waste management, water and energy use, responsible procurement, and social and cultural management.
As they gaze into the future, Belmond continues to find innovative ways to progress heritage and increase their global impact.
