Loyalty style benefits such as room upgrades, free breakfasts, offers, discounts and credit to spend in the bar, restaurant or spa are easy to book at Belmond Hotels or train journeys if you know how.
You would be amazed how many luxury travellers miss out on these free hotel perks. In this article, I share my very simple tips to ensure that you are prioritised for free breakfasts, upgrades and more, on your next booking at any Belmond hotel. Crucially, you can benefit from all these extras whilst still booking the same rates as on the hotel’s website direct.
Belmond Bellini Loyalty Club
Our Luxury Travel Concierge travel agency is a member of the official Belmond Bellini Loyalty Club. This loyalty club is not a consumer loyalty club, it is a travel agent club and it works similarly to the programs of American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts, and Virtuoso.
The good news is that, because we are a Bellini Club preferred partner, our benefits package tends to be better than other agents and you do NOT need to hold a specific credit card or to commit to a membership to book with us.
How To Get Your Upgrade & Benefits
Belmond hotels partner directly with a small number of agencies including our own Luxury Travel Concierge to give priority privileges at this luxury hotel brand. We are part of the Belmond Bellini Club so when you book through our Luxury Travel Concierge, you will get our preferred partner complimentary benefits.
You will benefit from the following perks at every Belmond hotel by booking with our Luxury Travel Concierge (perks can vary by specific hotel):
- VIP welcome treats with a local taste
- Buffet or full breakfast daily for two
- Space available complimentary upgrade on arrival
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
- Clients who spend US$5,000*+ at any one property or tour are eligible to receive a US$500 gift voucher for future travel of $2,500 or more at a different Belmond property (to be booked by same agent)
- $90 fully flexible hotel/resort credit per junior suite or room, per stay
- $200 fully flexible hotel/resort credit per full suite, per stay
Find Belmond Promotional Offers
In addition to the perks and upgrades outlined above, there are deals at some Belmond hotels which you can take advantage of, such as buy two nights, get one free and half board packages at certain hotels. You will find these deals on their website and if you book them with us you will also benefit from our complimentary perks.
Some of our favourite Belmond hotels include:
- Belmond Cipriani
- Belmond St Petersburg
- Copacabana Palace, Rio de Janeiro
- Hotel das Cataratas, Iguassu Falls

Unfortunately, the specific benefits outlined above do not extend to train journeys, such as the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express around Europe, the Belmond Andean Explorer through Peru or the Belmond Hiram Bingham Eastern & Oriental Express. However, we do sometimes have interesting offers on train itineraries and cruises such as promos on railway journeys with 25% off companion fares. It is always worth checking with our Luxury Travel Concierge before you make your booking to check for additional offers and loyalty benefits for same rates as on the Belmond’s website direct.
