The Gritti Palace
If you have a thing for palaces, art and historical architecture, you’re already in the right place.
The Gritti Palace dates back to 1475 and, along with beautiful rooms, delicious food and exceptional art, is home to a Sisley Paris spa, offering you a chance to relax in luxury after a day spent wandering the winding streets of the city.
Ask our experts about arranging concierge-curated experiences for you and yours while staying at the Gritti Palace, whether you want to embrace all things culinary, explore Venice’s Gothic history or take an exclusive tour of the city by water.
Historical architecture meets contemporary accommodation at the Aman Venice.
With just 24 rooms and suites, this beautiful hotel has a touch of intimacy about it, despite its grand décor. Two private gardens, a relaxing spa and glorious canal views make this a first-class choice while staying in Venice.
Tucked away on a third-floor mezzanine the Aman Spa is the go-to tranquil retreat after enjoying a gondola ride, tucking into Venetian cuisine and embracing all that the city has to offer. For those looking for the ultimate in luxury and wellness, try the spa’s thermal bathing treatments which use healing waters from Salsomaggiore Terme in northern Italy.
Baglioni Hotel Luna
Are you ready for the ultimate in luxury? Think prestigious suites, awe-inspiring architecture and a location in the very heart of Venice.
Enter, the Baglioni Hotel Luna. Romance is a running theme in the hotel’s stunning rooms and suites. Classically designed in opulent Venetian style, choose to take in views of the lagoon or canal while staying mere minute’s away from Doge’s Palace and St Mark’s Square.
Whether you want to experience Venice from the sky, or on a gondola getaway for two, we can help make it a reality while you’re staying at the Baglioni.
The award-winning Canova Restaurant is a must-visit for its innovative take on updating traditional Venetian recipes, while making the most of local and fresh ingredients to create nourishing dishes. Fancy finding out more? You can meet the Venetian-born chef here.
The most famous hotel in Venice? Quite possibly. Set on Riva degli Schiavoni, Hotel Danieli offers impressive interiors (think Romeo and Juliet), spectacular views and delicious cuisine at its rooftop eatery, Restaurant Terrazza Danieli and is comprised of three historic palaces.
Enjoy Venice like royalty while staying here, taking in views of the lagoon, rich collections of precious art and antiques and its superior location, just a short walk away from St Mark’s Square.
Fun fact: Restaurant Terrazza Danieli takes inspiration from famed Venetian merchant, Marco Polo’s journeys to the East. Experience oriental spices and flavours alongside ingredients fresh from the surrounding lagoon.

Hotel Monaco and Grand Canal
If open spaces and contemporary interiors with a classic Venetian touch are your thing, you’ll love Hotel Monaco and Grand Canal. Situated (you won’t be surprised to learn) along the canal and just a stone’s throw away from the Royal Gardens, with views of the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute, this location offers everything you need to enjoy a trip to the floating city.
Enjoy Venetian food galore at the canal-side restaurant or take in the panoramic views offered by the terrace with a glass of wine.
Once home to the aristocrats of Venice, it’s impossible not to embrace the decadence of the city while staying here.
