On the tip of Giudeca Island facing St Mark’s Square, Venice’s most famous hotel needs little introduction.
This iconic property, beloved of the elite and the famous and operated by Belmond hotels, has 95 suites and bedrooms, 16 of which are in the adjacent 15th century Palazzo Vendramin.
Complimentary private launches will whizz you across the Giudeca Canal into central Venice in five minutes, while your position on the island means that the hotel has ample space for facilities including an Olympic sized swimming pool and a tennis court – unheard of in central Venice.
‘Unadulterated opulence’ is yours if you book a Palladio or Dogaressa suite, while even the ‘standard’ double rooms have beautiful views of the gardens, the lagoon or St Mark’s Square, some from a private balcony.
Two terraces at Belmond Hotel Cipriani’s Fortuny restaurant are surrounded by the colours and scents from the hotel’s exotic gardens. If you have come to Venice for romance, you’ll find dining by lantern light alongside the lagoon to be every bit as idyllic an experience as you hoped for.
The dining room at the world-famous Cip’s Club has original artwork on the walls, but they are in competition with the breathtaking views of an illuminated St Mark’s Square from the waterside terrace by night. Drinks and light meals are also served alongside the enormous swimming pool.
Back on the theme of romance, and to ensure that you look and feel your best during your stay in Venice, the Cipriani’s Casanova Wellness Centre sits among the manicured gardens and offers world-class spa and beauty treatments.
As well as providing interconnecting rooms and suites and babysitting services, Belmond Hotel Cipriani runs a Smile Club for its younger guests, who have their own pool.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Venice into a greater Italian or European holiday.
