The Legendary on Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. The soft glow of the blush-pink table lamps, the sparkle of champagne, the magic of the train rushing through the night… Small wonder that the legendary train's vintage 1920s carriages have seen countless couples fall under their spell.
The Mystical on Belmond Road to Mandalay. Glide over 2000 centuries-old temples as dawn breaks over the sparkling waters of one of Asia's greatest rivers. Gaze down on the countryside awakening: farmers walking to the fields, Buddhist monks reciting their morning mantras as you begin your new life together.
The Laid-back at Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa. A table at the water's edge. Slip off your shoes and feel the warm, talcum sands. The sun goes down, the stars come out, and it feels like you are the only two people who have found this tropical paradise.
The Classic at Belmond Reid's Palace. A dinner à deux in a secluded area of the gardens sets an intimate tone. Other unique details, such as a violinist or guitarist, can be arranged to ensure a truly special evening.
The Magical at Belmond La Résidence Phou Vao. Lead your loved one by the hand to a table illuminated by the glow of hundreds of flickering candles. Cocooned by UNESCO heritage gardens, the soft sounds of live Lao music drifting through the air... What else to say but 'yes'?
