Give the Gift of Luxury Travel this Christmas

It’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas, especially if you plan to gift a travel experience to treasure.

Lockdown has reduced our horizons to our immediate environments.  With nowhere to go and little to do outside our homes and gardens, buying things for the sake of buying them has felt pretty pointless. Do we really need to be so consumer-ist? Do we really need ‘things’?

Perhaps we’ve finally realised that having ‘things’ – fast cars, expensive clothes, trinkets, etc – don’t really make all that much difference to our happiness. What really makes us happy is being with people we love and having experiences with them that stay with us long after the thrill of any online/store purchase has faded.

What do you want to give this Christmas? An expensive gift that with time will fade, or memories that you will always treasure?

The experiences and memories that we gain from travelling with family, friends and alone stay with us forever. It all starts with the planning. From drooling over exquisite photography on Instagram, exploring all the options, diligently tweaking the itinerary and finally pressing the button. Of course, 2020 has demonstrated that the best way to do this is through a bonded tour operator (like us!) to give you security and peace of mind.

Then there is the anticipation, the build-up (& perhaps a little consumerism for those who can’t quite let go of the shopping habit) and the excitement as the day of travel nears. Eventually, that day arrives and you are off on your adventure – whether to New York, Venice, the perfect golf break or the paradise of the Maldives.

Over the next few weeks, we’re going to inspire you to give something infinitely better than any trinket you’ll find under the tree this year, starting with the awesomeness of New York and the opulence of the Belmond Venice Simplon-Orient-Express and the Belmond Hotel Cipriani.

Venice Simplon-Orient-Express

Orient Express Bedroom

If we had to sum up the Orient Express in one word, it would be iconic. For sheer seamless luxury and nostalgia, it has no comparison.

Harking back to a golden era of travel, Poirot (hopefully without a murder) and elegance, is there really any other way to travel from London to Venice?

Just as iconic is the Belmond Hotel Cipriani, set on Venice’s Giudecca Island, a five-minute ride by private launch from St Mark’s Square . Stay at the Cipriani and be welcomed to a place where such timeless qualities as elegance, courtesy and charm become more than mere fantasy. The Cipriani captures everything La Serenissima is famed for.
