A range of vintage cabins
The Belmond Eastern and Oriental Train boasts smart gold, cream and green carriages with interior cherry wood panelled details. Colour accents are courtesy of Malaysian embroidered textiles and Thai silks, while interest is added by original vintage items. Inside each fully air-conditioned cabin is an en-suite shower room with premium toiletries and hairdryer, while on board the train, 24-hour service and entertainment are yours to enjoy. Pullman cabins are full of authentic vintage charm, with plush daytime seating that converts to a bed by night. State cabins are more spacious, light and airy, and provide the ideal setting for admiring the passing landscape, while Presidential cabins feature additional touches of luxury such as Wi-Fi and a complimentary mini bar.
Exquisite, elegant dining
Dining on board is the feast that follows a day of visiting tea plantations, coastal resorts, lush jungle, former colonial towns and tiny villages. Elegantly presented dishes that are flawlessly executed are the speciality of the on-board chefs, who aim to rival the best restaurants in the world. Lunch and dinner are served daily in the restaurant car, while a continental breakfast is delivered to your private cabin each morning as you start another exciting day. By night, you can sip an expertly mixed signature cocktail as you traverse the east by rail.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
