Belmond celebrates 'The Art of Cinematography'

Belmond celebrates the timeless world of cinematic film this November with the release of two global blockbusters bringing to life nostalgic characters and legendary stories.

Bear Adventures
Families will be celebrating the release of the firm family favourite, PADDINGTON 2, featuring Belmond British Pullman; where the charming bear from Peru saves the day. Special Paddington Bear themed afternoon tea journeys take place aboard Belmond British Pullman departing from London Victoria on 2 December 2017, 18 February and 7 April 2018. For those with a taste for adventure – special packages offer families the chance to discover Paddington’s homeland, Peru with bear-friendly activities for all ages available at Cusco to Machu Picchu with Belmond.

Mystery and Glamour
With the recreation of one of the world’s most famous murder mysteries ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ featuring a star-studded line up of possible suspects; the glamourous images of a bygone era of luxury travel are set to inspire travellers to take a journey aboard a luxury train.

Belmond’s luxury trains take travellers on journeys of celebration throughout South America, Asia, Ireland, Scotland and Europe. Experiences range from South America’s first luxury sleeper train, Belmond Andean Explorer, travelling through the foothills of the Andes to the historic carriages of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express that weaves through the lakes and mountains of Europe. The famous train will reach new levels of luxury in March 2018 with the launch of three stunning new Grand Suites.

On Set
With a portfolio of global travel experiences in some of the world’s most inspiring locations – Belmond provides the backdrop for cinematic moments across the globe. Follow in the footsteps of Indiana Jones at Belmond Hotel das Cataratas, Iguassu Falls, Brazil or take the train to Machu Picchu named after the explorer Hiram Bingham which Indie’s character is based on. Or, dine at a table for two in ‘Bogies’ corner at 21 Club, New York, where Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall held their first date.

The Golden Age of Film
To celebrate The Art of Cinematography, Belmond has launched a series of short films that honour the golden age of travel and film – titled ‘The Art of Savoir-Vivre’. Directed by acclaimed film director Romain Chassaing, the films follow a stylish cast of global jet setters travelling from Rio to Venice, taking their time to enjoy the art of living. Witty and quirky, they encapsulate the spirit of Belmond.

Wherever the location; celebrate with Belmond as the brand tells its timeless story through a cinematic lens.

That’s Savoir-Vivre….. belmond.com
