The legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, a Belmond Train, now features a new luxurious cabin accommodation. Eight new suites will grace the train in June 2023 to further elevate the train experience.
Belmond’s new suites feature a private marble ensuite bathroom and a spacious lounging area that transforms into either double or twin beds by night. Additional amenities include a complimentary kimono and slippers, as well as a personal 24-hour cabin steward.
The new suites take up two original 1920s and 30s carriages, with four suites on each car. Carefully restored and reimagined by expert French craftsmen and designers, the suites’ designs pay homage to European landscapes. The suites are inspired by four regions: Les Lacs, La Forêt, Les Montagnes and La Campagne. Plush fabrics and furniture incorporate famed Art Deco designers like Majorelle, Dufrene and Rousseau. The new suites complement the two existing cabin categories, Historic Cabins and Grand Suites.
The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express travels through Europe, March–November, with routes through Czech Republic (Prague), France (Cannes and Paris), Italy (Florence, Rome, Verona and Venice), Austria (Innsbruck and Vienna), Hungary (Budapest), Romania (Bucharest), Switzerland (Geneva), Belgium (Brussels) and the Netherlands (Amsterdam). The train also embarks on a once-a-year route from Paris to Istanbul.
