Ideally located on the Grand Canal in a beautifully converted 16th-century palazzo, this lavish heritage hotel attracts distinguished guests from around the world with its ornate frescoes, gilded ceilings and treasured works of art.
Michelin-starred chef Davide Oldani oversees an innovative menu of modern Italian cuisine, drawing on Venice’s incredible abundance of local produce. Inspired creations are prepared using the freshest seasonal ingredients, such as soft-shell crab caught in the lagoon and vegetables from the city’s famous Rialto Market. Guests can choose to dine in the elegant dining rooms or alfresco in the tranquil gardens, or the newly-refurbished bar serves updated Venetian classics in a relaxed setting overlooking the canal.
Hidden in a secret mezzanine level of the hotel, the intimate Aman Spa offers an indulgent menu of Eastern-inspired therapies while active types can work-out in the modern fitness studio while admiring sweeping views over the Venetian skyline. The library’s books and board games provide a peaceful retreat from the buzz of the city, or guests can request a tour of the palazzo to learn more about the hotel’s captivating history. A range of authentic local experiences can also be organised on request – such as visiting the local market with the hotel’s chef, who will then prepare a traditional Venetian lunch using guests’ purchases.
George and Amal Clooney famously spent their wedding night in the spacious Alcova Tiepolo Suite with its 18th-century frescoes, marble fireplaces and tall windows, while the sprawling Grand Canal Suite offers spectacular views of the gleaming canal below. Both spaces boast a separate living room, bedroom with king-size bed, bathroom, and armoire with personal bar. The Grand Canal Suite can be configured for two bedrooms on request.
