BLUE TRAIN - SUITES
By day, the elegant furnished Blue Train suites offer generous lounge chairs which afford unequalled views of Africa. As night falls the suites become sumptuous and subtly-lit bedrooms with a choice of either two single beds (twin) or a double bed, clothed in fine cotton linen and duvets. Considerable attention is paid to guests' needs. There is a writing desk next to the window, individually-controlled air-conditioning, telephone, safe and TV monitor with on board movie and music channels. You can even tune into a conductor's-eye-view camera and watch the track ahead of the train. Professional Butlers are available for the duration of the journey to look after your needs. Room service is available at all hours. All suites have private bathrooms with marble floors and gold fittings. Plush white towels, soft cotton kimonos and an array of luxury bath oils and soaps are provided. The beds fold out of the panel concealing the seats under it. Just ring your butler, should you require the bed to be made during the journey. All suites are fitted with WiFi.
DE LUXE SUITES
The De Luxe coaches each have four suites that measure 4 by 2 metres. One of these contains a double bed and a ¾ size bath tub with handheld shower, while the others have twin beds with showers. The deluxe suite itself is only slightly smaller than the Luxury Suite. The large window will offer you an opportunity to enjoy the ever-changing vistas of the countryside. Your elegant and relaxing lounge during the day, is transformed into a subtly-lit bedroom during the night, bedecked with goose-down and 100 per cent percale-cotton bedding, from your individually-controlled air-conditioning system, under-floor heating, opulent marble and gold-fitted bathroom, its scented bath salts and plush monogrammed towels, to the electronic entertainment options on offer. A personal butler is at your disposal for the entire duration of the journey.
Luxury coaches have three Luxury Suites that each measure 5,13 by 2 metres and give you the option of twin beds or a double bed. On each of the two train sets there are two luxury coaches, with three luxury suites per coach. The bathroom of the Luxury Suite offers a deep, long bath for luxuriant soaking. Your Luxury Suite will enchant you from the moment your personal butler ushers you aboard. It extends the offering from a De Luxe suite even further; by an extra metre of your domain, with twin or double bedded suites which offer you long and luxurious bath tubs and a private digital interactive entertainment system, with an inviting selection of music CDs and big-screen movies on Blue-Ray DVD. All suites are fitted with WI-FI service that is complimentary to all our guests. Use the telephone system in each suite to dial your butler, at no extra charge, for an apéritif. You can also call family and friends and relay your Blue Train experience at a minimal fee. At night your sitting area is transformed into a restful night-time sanctuary. Goose down duvets and pillows and 100 percent percale cotton bedding envelop you as you drift off after a soothing, scented soak or shower in your marble and gold-appointed bathroom, lulled by the rhythm of the whispering wheels.
