The Gritti Palace, a Luxury Collection Hotel
With ‘Palace’ in its name, you would be right to expect opulence and a sense of occasion during your stay at this Grande Dame of the Venetian hotel scene. Perfectly poised overlooking the canals, this historic property feels anchored to the heart of Venice, offering discerning guests history, sophistication, gastronomy and great service.
Dating back to 1475, this noble property combines old-world charm with modern style, creating the intimate and familiar feel of a private residence. Inside the historic walls is a world of luxury and decadence, with restored original features and antique furnishings, combined with contemporary comforts. An air of extravagance extends to the ornately appointed rooms and suites, with many featuring views of the Grand Canal.
Dining at The Club del Doge restaurant offers an opportunity to enjoy an evening of award-winning cuisine while looking out across the waterways, while The Gritti Terrace is the ideal spot for an indulgent lunch, afternoon tea, or refreshing Bellini. Attached to the terrace is the Riva Lounge, a unique space designed to evoke the feel of a luxury yacht, which provides a glamorous meeting place for an aperitif at sunset or an after-dinner cocktail.
Learn the art of Venetian cookery at The Gritti Epicurean School, unwind in The Gritti SPA with aromatherapy treatments and hammam, or exercise in the gym. As well as sightseeing and tours, there are also plenty of exciting things to do beyond the hotel’s walls, including sports and a variety of recreational activities.
