• One night aboard the Venice Sim­plon- Ori­ent- Ex­press in a Grand Suite, from Ber­lin to London, on 23 June 2018 • Pri­vate trans­fers to and from the train* • Af­ter­noon tea aboard the Bel­mond Bri­tish Pull­man

The Venice Sim­plon-ori­ent-ex­press’s Grand Suites are re­defin­ing the con­cept of lux­ury train ac­com­mo­da­tion, with each suite fea­tur­ing a dou­ble bed, a spa­cious liv­ing area and an en suite bath­room with a shower. Hand-carved tim­ber, silk fab­rics, em­bossed leather and Vene­tian glass are just a few of the de­tails you’ll spot in th­ese ex­cep­tional suites, which com­bine the train’s orig­i­nal 1920s art deco de­sign with the spirit of ei­ther Paris, Venice or Is­tan­bul (its most well­known des­ti­na­tions).

This gift of a two-day, one-night jour­ney from Ber­lin to London will take you and your guest through the scenic Ger­man coun­try­side, past north­ern France and straight into the heart of Bri­tain’s vi­brant cap­i­tal.

You can choose to let your ded­i­cated cabin stew­ard bring you free-flow­ing cham­pagne, snug­gle down in your com­pli­men­tary art-deco bathrobe or pre­pare to feast on the ex­cel­lent cui­sine. A three-course lunch and af­ter­noon tea are yours to savour, while a lav­ish four­course din­ner in­clud­ing a sea­sonal ta­ble d’hote menu can be served in your Grand Suite.

An in-suite con­ti­nen­tal break­fast and a three-course brunch will set you up for the fol­low­ing morn­ing, un­til you trans­fer to the Bel­mond Bri­tish Pull­man lux­ury train in Dover. On this fi­nal leg of the jour­ney through the idyl­lic English land­scape, en­joy a glass of sparkling wine and af­ter­noon tea - a clas­sic Bri­tish wel­come as you ap­proach London’s Vic­to­ria Sta­tion. Gift must be pur­chased by 31 Jan­uary 2018. Please email ul­ti­mate­gift­guide@ imv. com. sg for en­quiries and to pur­chase. Visit rob­bre­port.com. sg or rob­bre­port.com. my for
