We booked a suite at Venissa for our 20th wedding celebration and arrived on the actual day. We had told them in advance about our anniversary but throughout our stay the majority of staff barely smiled let alone congratulated us, spoke to us or did anything at all special. We felt so unwelcome that we chose to eat elsewhere both... More

Venice is mad. Full of tourists (like us). But we were glad for a break at Venissa, on Mazzorbo Island, a 30 minute boat ride from Venice, we took the number 12 ferry from Venice, but I'm sure you can take a water taxi if you prefer. The ferry is really fine. We wanted a special treat, looking at the... More

I just love this hotel. They have only 6 rooms and the vineyard that they are located in is just beautiful. The Island of Mazzorbo is small and you are within a few minutes accross the bridge on the Island of Burano with its lovely coloured houses. The service is good and the restaurant serves excellent food. We enjoyed are... More

We've been to this hotel several times just the two of us, myself and my husband, Roger. I told my family, 2 sons, 2 daughters-in-Law and a grandson (6 years old now), that I would like to take them all to have a lovely time at Venissa hotel. We went there between 24th - 28th May 2015. We had such... More

I have recently returned from a three night stay at the Venissa - I went with my husband and two good friends and we all had the most amazing time! The place is is so tranquil you just feel all your stress lifting off you. When the weather is fine you eat a beautiful breakfast outside on the terrace, with... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Venissa. The rooms were cool but functional, including towels that seemed too thin to dry you but magically did. The area was quiet and the room had a lovely view of the canal. For us, it was relaxing to return to what seemed at times like a private island after exploring Venice for... More

I was by myself for one day...calm place, I got everything I want within the hotel...2 beautiful restaurants with stunning view, great Venissa wines even make the stay more promising. The island centre is few minutes walking. Great location, food wine and people there are so freindly... unforgettable experience!

It takes one hour ferry ride to arrive at the hotel from train station at Venice Saint Lucia. It's not easy since we travel with a two year old boy and two big baggages. But all of us think it's well worthy since the hotel itself is beautiful, it's rooms are spacious and well decorated and modern. Breakfast is served... More

Dear Guest, thank you for you nice review. I know Venissa is not so close to the railway station (20 min from railway station to Venice Rialto area and 40 min from Rialto to Venissa), but as you said the trip is worth, specially when you can enjoy a good Prosecco in front of the lagoon at your arrival!

Unique hotel on the tiny island of Mazzorbo in the Venetian lagoon. Fully updated facility, with fine dining using local ingredients, including the on premises garden and vineyard. The Bisol family (Prosecco) is making a major investment in Venissa, which its guests are able to enjoy. No crowds. Thirty minutes by vaporetto to the main island. Five minute walk to... More
