Cipriani, A Belmond Hotel, Venice
Set on the beautiful Giudecca Island, away from the hustle and bustle of central Venice, Belmond Hotel Cipriani has all the romance and allure of Renaissance Italy. Overlooking the shimmering lagoon towards famous St. Mark’s Square, this 5-star hotel offers guests the chance to experience a discreet, more demure side of Venice.
Refined guestrooms and spacious suites offer timeless elegance, bedecked with Venetian-style furnishings and private balconies. For the most palatial privacy, there’s Palazzo Vendramin, separated from Cipriani by a floral pathway. Guests here enjoy 270-degree views of the lagoon, plus private gardens and a complimentary private launch to take them to and from St Mark’s.
On the lagoon-side of the Giudecca canal is the Cip’s Club restaurant, a popular choice for its informal atmosphere and Venetian specialities. Though to really treat the palate, head instead to the more refined, Michelin-starred Oro restaurant. Other dining options include a rustic dinner at Giudecca 10 or light poolside meals at Il Porticciolo. Whatever your preference, you can be sure that the hotel is home to some of the best restaurants in Venice.
On site you’ll have access to an Olympic-sized pool, a spa, kids’ club, tennis court and private marina. Then when you’re ready to explore, the concierge team are on hand to arrange transfers, gondolas, tours, excursions and restaurant reservations. They can show you sides to Venice that few visitors get to see.
