Belmond-Hopping Through Peru
Belmond is one our very favorite hoteliers and if you’ve worked with us, we’ve almost certainly recommended them to you! The Belmond brand is synonymous with one-of-a-kind hotels, trains, river cruises and safari lodges in stunning destinations across the globe. Each property has an incredible story to tell and an experience all its own.
Explore Machu Picchu at sunrise. Trace the shores of Lake Titicaca from a luxury train. Step out from your suite in an ancient palace and into the buzz of Cusco. Experience the bustle of Lima to the rugged beauty of the Colca Valley. We had the opportunity to stay at five of Bemond’s Peruvian properties and ride the renowned Hiram Bingham.

NIHI is a luxurious resort located on the remote island of Sumba in Indonesia, offering stunning views of the Indian Ocean and surrounded by lush forests and pristine beaches. The resort is renowned for its unique blend of luxury and sustainability, with a commitment to supporting local communities and preserving the island's natural beauty. NIHI Sumba Island has received numerous awards for its sustainability initiatives, including the World Travel Awards for Asia's Green Resort.
For the intrepid: The island offers a wide range of thrilling activities to experience. Guests can explore the island's rugged terrain on horseback or by taking a guided hike through the lush forests to discover hidden waterfalls and traditional Sumbanese villages. For thrill seekers, there are opportunities to surf, snorkel and paddle board in the crystal-clear waters of the Indian Ocean. 
The resort also offers two voyages with Aqua Expeditions (one of our fav's!!) to provide a luxury guest experience onto the waters of the Indonesian archipelago. On these indulgent voyages you will visit pristine nature in stunning locations that are truly "off-grid" and untouched.
For the indulgent: For those looking to indulge, NIHI Sumba Island offers the Spa Safari™. Taking place a short distance from the resort, you arrive in adventurous style; by horseback, safari jeep or spirited sunrise trek through rolling hills and expansive rice fields. Intimate treatment Bales dramatically perch on emerald green cliffs confronted by sweeping views of sapphire sea - the rhythm of waves and swaying of palm trees your meditation.
