The common denominator for every incredible holiday experience - be it a safari adventure, a beach break, an urban escape or anything in between - is a great place to rest your head.

The hotel can make or break any luxury holiday, which is why we only work with those we know, trust and love. From the canals of Venice to Brazil's Iguacu Falls and the beaches of Bali, Belmond hotels are found in some of the world's most iconic destinations. It's a brand that prides itself on being a master in the art of hospitality; known for adding inspiration to every stay, from discreet dining to takeovers of entire hotels. This is a concept that very much rings true for us at Original Travel because, as we all know, life is in the detail.

The Bellini cocktails at the poolside Gabbiano Bar at Belmond Cipriani in Venice are probably the best I have ever had!

Grand Hotel Timeo, luxury hotel in Italy

Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo

If there was a 'hotel with the best location in the world' award, the Grand Hotel Timeo would be a serious contender... Set high in the rocky hills on the east coast of Sicily, Grand Hotel Timeo has long been known as one of Italy’s most glamorous retreats, and has now had a serious - and arguably much needed - overhaul by the Belmond group.

Belmond Sanctuary Lodge

Belmond Sanctuary Lodge

Frankly, thanks to its location as the only hotel next to Machu Picchu, this could be a hole in the ground and we’d still recommend it.

Belmond La Residencia

Set in the attractive hilltop village of Deià, between the sea and the rugged Sierra Tramuntana, La Residencia is one of the best hotels in the Mediterranean.

Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado

Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado

Belmond Splendido & Belmond Splendido Mare

Belmond Splendido & Belmond Splendido Mare

Splendido by name and splendid by nature, the Belmond Hotel Splendido is one of the iconic Italian hotels. So what's so splendido? Quite a bit. First of all there's the spectacular setting, with the hotel perched above picture perfect Portofino, one of Europe's loveliest town. In fact, we're going to stick our collective necks out and go as far as saying the view down the hill of Portofino harbour is one of the best in the world.

Where do I start? It was our best trip yet. Everything went smoothly. It was a wonderful package at a very good price, well organised by Original Travel and we felt totally spoilt.
