Plan Your Next Incentive with Belmond in Italy and Mallorca
Belmond hotels throughout Italy and Mallorca offer stunning views in prime locations, a huge variety of cultural excursions and exceptional service setting the stage for your next incentive trip.
Belmond Hotel Cipriani sits just across the Venetian lagoon from lively St Mark’s Square, yet has the feel of a hidden resort. It is the perfect base for a wealth of exciting activities including boat tours to magical lagoon wineries, the perfume museum and the fascinating Armenian monastery. Your guests can choose to travel in style by exploring the waterways of Venice aboard the Missoni family’s private boat. Groups are treated to a delicious breakfast as they sit in lavish comfort soaking up the views. After a tour of the islands of the Venetian lagoon, the boat docks at San Giorgio Island, where guests alight to enjoy a private guided tour of the clock tower and Cini Foundation.
Moving on to central Italy, Belmond Villa San Michele perches on a hillside overlooking the rooftops of Florence and the city’s grand cathedral dome. This exquisite 15th-century former monastery is surrounded by lush Italian gardens with a beautiful pool. Activities available from the hotel include sightseeing by raft, movies under the stars and cooking classes. For the ultimate experience, why not offer your guests a hot-air balloon ride over the Tuscan countryside and rolling Chianti hills.
Set among olive groves in the village of Deià on Mallorca’s northern coast, Belmond La Residencia is a haven of peace and tranquility. Known for its strong links with the arts, it is currently showcasing a collection of 33 original Joan Miró works, the largest number by the artist on display in a hotel. After viewing the art at leisure, groups can enjoy a relaxing stroll through the olive groves with the hotel’s resident donkeys, stopping at a local shepherd’s hut for an authentic Mallorcan picnic lunch.
Why not combine our fantastic selection of properties in Italy and Mallorca as well as a journey aboard the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express into one grand tour through world-famous destinations, rich history and breathtaking landscapes while treating your guests to Belmond’s renowned comfort and style.
