Belmond holidays

Luxury across the Continent

Luxury Belmond holidays


From millennium-old castles to convents designed by Michelangelo himself, Belmond offers some of the world’s most iconic hotels, each dressed in all the trappings of ultra-luxury. Painters are employed full time to touch up flawless whitewash, complimentary luxury boat launches explore Venetian canals and guest lists included the likes of Elizabeth Taylor and Humphrey Bogart. What’s more, when booking with Wexas, you’ll enjoy the best exclusive offers.


Historically significant, Belmond hotels are invariably unique. Think everything from Renaissance monasteries to century-old palaces and a thousand-year-old Tuscan castle – one of the largest private landholdings in all of Italy – surrounded by 4,200 acres of vineyards and olive groves. Wherever you stay, rooms are dressed in the likes of curated antiques and paintings by old masters, while some even feature geranium-laden private balconies that take in their privileged setting.

First, a word on the service. Staff are impeccable, discreetly anticipating your needs before you even know them, whether that’s a fresh towel by the pool or your child being given a complimentary teddy bear. Then, in terms of amenities, the spas are universally superb, offering world-class treatments inspired by the setting. You can also expect plenty of the unique, from private game reserves and beaches to tea terraces, piano bars and Venice’s only Olympic-sized pool. The same hotel even features the very garden where Casanova himself wooed his lovers.

Throughout Belmond’s properties, you can expect both fine-dining extravaganzas and smart-casual offerings. All draw inspiration from their respective settings, with highlights including the best in Mediterranean paella, mouth-watering Sicilian barbecues and Tuscan vegetables picked straight from the castle gardens. The Belmond Hotel Cipriani deserves a special mention for its Michelin starred Oro restaurant. Here, under Murano glass chandeliers, you’ll be treated to a lesson in seafood washed down by a thousand-strong wine list. And, wherever you dine, delicious dishes are always combined with stunning views. You can admire Mount Etna from the brand-new Otto Geleng Restaurant at Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo while savouring Sicilian delicacies or take in stunning views of Portofino from La Terrazza restaurant at Belmond Hotel Splendido as you try delicious Ligurian specialities.

Having begun life in Venice, it’s apt that Belmond’s European options focus on Italy. And, wherever you stay, you’ll be treated to simply the best setting. Escape Venice’s bustle on a near-private island, gaze out over Florence from a Tuscan hillside or perch high above the Amalfi Coast’s multicolour tumble in a private villa. There’s also the opportunity to stay in Mediterranean bliss on Mallorca and in Madeira’s grand island dame – Belmond Reid’s Palace. Lastly, although you’ll always be delightfully secluded, you’ll be able to explore with complimentary boat shuttles and launches.
