Belmond is planning to take the concept of wellness to a different level in 2020 with the launch of its ‘Good Living’ concept. The luxury hotel group has announced a number of amazing trips made to deliver authentic and timeless experiences.
Wellness travel has experienced a meteoric increase in the past few years and it is likely to grow further in 2020. In an attempt to strike out from the crowd, Belmond is providing a curated selection of adventures from mindfulness and meditation; physical and mental challenges to cultural immersion and champagne moments.
Each one-of-a-kind experience has been chosen for its ability to inspire passion and discovery while celebrating art de vivre in the purest form. To do this, Belmond has appointed an ‘Experience Maker’ – a specialist in their field who'll make sure the itinerary is really as authentic and enriching as you possibly can – for each experience.
Among the new experiences may be the Inspiring Adventure with Raha Moharrak. Raha made history when she had become the youngest Arab woman to summit Mount Everest, and she will use her expertise to lead an incredible hike to Bhamo through the untouched north of mystical Myanmar.
Those seeking cultural immersion is going to be inspired by the Poetry moving experience. Hosted by actor Gala Gordon and producer Isabella Macpherson, guests will visit Sicily where they will be treated to an anthology of poems inspired by rail travel. Gala and Isabella will also host a special poetry workshop at Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo from the literary terrace where DH Lawrence wrote the novel, Lady Chatterley's Lover with the backdrop of Mount Etna.
The Self-Care to visit experience sits closest to a wider sense of wellness travel. This adventure, curated by sisters Nadia and Katia Narain, will teach guests the art of taking time to look after the body and mind to make sure balance and space for full enjoyment of life. Nadia and Katia, who co-wrote the book Self-care for the Real life and Rituals for each Day, will host the experience in the idyllic Belmond Cap Juluca in Anguilla.
