Wellbeing is taking center stage at Belmond properties throughout the world thanks to the brand’s new Good Living concept, which focuses on experiences that involve authentic and timeless interactions. Experience makers, experts in their fields, bring the Good Living idea to life with activities that enrich the mind, body, and soul. For example, guests can enjoy a retreat in early July at Belmond Cap Juluca, Anguilla with sisters Nadia Narain and Katia Narain Phillips, authors of Self-Care for the Real World and Rituals for Every Day.
On the Belmond Road to Mandalay river cruise, Raha Moharrak, the youngest Arab woman to summit Mount Everest, will guide guests on an expedition to Bhamo, the untouched northern region of Myanmar, sharing her knowledge and expertise of summiting the world’s greatest mountains. Celebrity florist Simon Lycett will share his passion for flowers with guests at Belmond Reid’s Palace in Madeira during the famous flower festival in May.
Says Arnaud Champenois, senior vice president, global head of brand, marketing, and communications for Belmond, “Good Living is about passion and discovery—that one-of-a-kind authentic experience with an extra special je ne sais quoi that simply cannot be replicated.”
