The Eastern & Oriental Express offers something for all guests with three accommodation options, all of which are tastefully decked out with warm wooden paneling, boasting en-suite facilities with shower, towels and toiletries, as well as air conditioning.
Guests in the Presidential Cabin enjoy the height of luxury with separate lounge and dressing areas and windows overlooking the landscape outside. The bathroom is located off the dressing room for ultimate privacy and the seating area easily converts into a cozy bedroom with two single beds.
Guests can relax in the privacy of their own lounge on the Pullman’s plush sofa by day; by night it can be converted into two bunk beds. This cosy cabin has an outward-facing window and storage space for comfort and convenience.
The comfortable sofa and window seat in the State Cabin transform easily into two single beds, for an uninterrupted night’s sleep while the compact bathroom and stand up shower come as an en-suite.
Aside from the engaging array of stops, excursions and activities including wine tastings, temple exploration and nature trails, the observation car on board the Eastern & Oriental Express is sure to keep guests occupied and entertained.
At the back of the train, guests can enjoy the early morning refreshments, comfortable seating and stunning views afforded by the Observation Car. An outside, coverless area allows for excellent photo opportunities while nightly performances will entertain after dark.
The chefs on board the Eastern & Oriental Express delight their guests daily with delicious dishes. Breakfast is served to diners directly in their cabins or in the observation car while lunch and dinner are enjoyed in the dining carriage.
Guests wishing to socialize and enjoy a cocktail or two with their fellow passengers can lounge and relax in the bar car, with a sundowner before dinner or a nightcap accompanied by the train’s resident pianist.
Diners congregate for lunch and dinner in the elegant dining car, decked out with crisp, white linen for a dash of class, to enjoy delicious meals of Asian and international cuisine made with fresh ingredients that have been locally sourced.
