With all the elegance of a private club, this fabled hotel is the perfect base for discerning travelers. It's situated at the end of the Giudecca Island and is set in beautiful gardens, but is only a 5-minute boat ride from St. Mark's. The hotel's windows overlook the Basin of St. Mark's, Palladio's church of St. Giorgio Maggiore and the distant islands of the lagoon.
Hotel Cipriani offers 95 superbly-appointed rooms and Suites (many with balconies or terraces), exquisitely decorated with magnificent views over the open lagoon or the hotel's gardens. The sumptuous Palladio Suite boasts a 180-degree view over the Venetian lagoon through floor to ceiling windows, an outdoor heated plunge pool with a Jacuzzi-type whirlpool bath and its own private boat dock. The separate Palazzo Vendramin is a 15th century building linked to the hotel through an ancient courtyard and a flowered passageway. It offers 15 rooms and Suites with butler service where privacy is complete and the view of historic Venice across the water is unparalleled.
The hotel's three restaurants -- the Fortuny, the Cip's Club and the Porticciolo Pool Restaurant -- have been awarded prizes for the perfection of their regional cuisine. A meal on the terrace of the Fortuny Restaurant, with its blown glass, precious fabrics, amber-colored mirrors and magnificent views of the lagoon, is an event to remember. The adjoining Fortuny Bar is an elegant place to sit and sip a cocktail while the Gabbiano Poolside Bar is more casual and stays open until 1 a.m.
You can get a good workout in the hotel's heated, Olympic-size, outdoor saltwater swimming pool or on the red-clay tennis courts. There's also a gym and the Casanova Wellness Centre offers exclusive spa and beauty treatments. The Hotel Cipriani is only five minutes from St. Mark's Square by complimentary private motor launch (in operation 24 hours a day).
