Do you dream of a holiday of retrò times that will remain etched in the memento of your extraordinary memories, in an exceptional train-Spa, to spend a few days of pleasure, relax and wellness? I’m not taking about any Spa, but a wagon-Spa, with a timeless charm, on the legendary Oriental Express, one of the most luxurious convoys in the world. Let me take you on a movie train-trip, which offers the opportunity of well-being on board at the Library’s cabin-Spa, thanks to the widespread aroma of holy wood, to help relaxing the mind and a Therapeutic Massage and Foot Reflexology service, whose basic principle uses techniques of acupressure of hands, feet and face, in perfect harmony with oriental philosophies. The Eastern & Oriental Express is the prestigious luxury train, which I took a few years ago, from Singapore to Bangkok and which, with its 400 meters of length and elegant and comfortable carriages, makes it possible to relive the golden age of the trains, in one of the most fascinating regions of the world, towards enchanting itineraries, between Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Laos, cradled by the sophisticated and refined atmosphere and the prestigious service, guaranteed to the passengers, thanks to the undisputed class and refinement of the Oriental-Express brand.
In the restaurant lounge, with a brigade of international and high level cuisine, lunch and dinner are served in two elegant restaurant-wagons, furnished with care and quality materials; you can find music, entertainment, expert conferences or table games. The chefs on board can follow specific dietary indications for customers, or healthy menus, as long as they are reported at the moment of reservation. The time of the trip comes alive between refined meals, a tea in the afternoon, an aperitif, reading a good book i the cozy reading room or a treatment of body care, with the landscape that comes out of the window. It’s an experience to try, on board one of the historic cabins, built during the period of the roaring ‘20s up to the ‘30s of the last century, which, during the day or night, are transformed by the attentive and qualified staff, in cozy bedrooms or pleasant lounges, with mahogany interiors, air conditioning, safe, hairdryer, bathroom with sink, shower and toilet. Each guest is assisted by a personal steward, throughout the stay, 24 hours a day, which, moreover, directly serves a delicious breakfast in bed, consisting of a choice of coffee, tea, juices, accompanied by bread and croissants just baked.
Those wishing to get up early to look the magnificent views of the morning lights, including jungles, tea plantations, rural villages, excursions to the bridge over the Kwai River, can receive tea and coffee in the colonial-style observation coach bar, of which a third of the surface is outdoors. The central bar, with its pleasently oriental atmosphere, is open all day and late at night and serves juices, drinks, aperitifs, cocktails and liqueurs. There is a resident pianist on board the Eastern & Oriental Express and local shows are organized in the evenings. Whatever the individual preferences, the experience of a wellness trip in the Spa-train or in the prestigious Oriental-Express will surely capture the heart of each and his imagination!
