The famous group of dreamy hotels has launched AR filters making virtual hotel tours possible
The Travel Dreams filter invites followers of Belmond’s Instagram to take a virtual tour of the world of Belmond – asking the question ‘’Which Belmond destination are you dreaming of?’,
The randomizer filter transports the user to that destination – they may find themselves sitting on the terrace overlooking Mount Etna at Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo, or cooling off by the pool at Belmond Residence d’Angkor, Siem Reap.

Apart from the main ‘travel dreams’ filter, Belmond has also created individual filters for each one of their 46 iconic products, so it’s possible to virtually visit any Belmond product. Click here for more virtual hotel tours on Instagram stories.
Belmond Ltd. part of the world’s leading luxury group LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton has been a pioneer of luxury travel for more than 40 years, building a passion for authentic escapes into a portfolio of one-of-a-kind experiences in some of the world’s most inspiring and enriching destinations. Since the acquisition of the iconic Hotel Cipriani in Venice in 1976, Belmond has continued to push industry boundaries, taking discerning global travellers on surprising and unforgettable journeys spanning land, water, adventure and relaxation, with international acclaim. The portfolio of 46 properties extends across 24 countries, encompassing three luxury safari lodges, two river cruises, seven luxury trains, including the iconic Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, and the legendary ‘21’ restaurant in New York. From historic city landmarks like Belmond Cadogan Hotel and Belmond Copacabana Palace to hidden retreats at Belmond Cap Juluca and Belmond La Résidence d’Angkor, each incomparable property has its own timeless story to tell, yet the hallmarks of the brand thread through them all: heritage, craftsmanship, and a reputation for genuine, unscripted service in an unrivaled location, create exceptional experiences that stir the soul.
Users can post videos and photos of themselves using the filters of any property and in turn spark the travel dreams of their own followers. The Belmond filter is downloadable directly from the effects tab on Belmond’s Instagram account, and on the individual property filters on each of their Instagram profiles.
