San Clemente Palace Kempinski is recognised, one more time, as the Best Hotel in Venice by Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2020. One of Italy’s most enchanting secrets, San Clemente Palace is a city resort located on its own island in the Venice lagoon, just 10 minutes from San Marco Square via the hotel’s complimentary boats. A tranquil sanctuary on the doorstep of Venice, San Clemente Palace Kempinski is one of Italy’s most enchanting secrets. The stately resort immerses guests in the drama, glamour, and heritage of Venice. The 900-year-old landmark property is comprised of a series of beautifully restored monastery buildings, as well as a 12th-century chapel, and nearly 15 acres of ancient gardens, courtyards, and terraces boasting breath-taking views of the city on the horizon. San Clemente Palace Kempinski has 29 special and 37 junior suites, and 130 luxury rooms in which Venetian decorations blend with legacy design elements, while typical high Venetian ceilings create a sense of home. San Clemente Suite is selected as the “Europe's Leading Hotel Suite” in 2018. The hotel features three bars and three special restaurants, including a signature restaurant with terraces overlooking the lagoon. Indulge in the restaurants Acquerello and Insieme, offering exceptional interpretations of iconic Italian and Venetian specialities, whereas Buddha-Bar Beach Restaurant & Pool Bar features a unique culinary experience that combines the signature dishes of the famous neo-Asian Buddha-Bar with unique local Italian and Mediterranean dishes and flavours. San Clemente Palace Kempinski also features the Europe’s Best Hotel Spa 2019 & 2020 award winner Merchant of Venice SPA. The unique spa experience offers a luxurious couples suite, and indulgent wet area with sauna, steam bath and showers, together with a hair salon.

With my wife and my grand-son, we had a wonderful stay in this wanderful hotel resort.with a fantastic swimming pool.Just é suggestions I would like to make: - there should be a junior menu especially at the pool (portions are huge, even for adults), - and the transfer to St marco and return should be scheduled every half hour, it would be easier to remember, and also more convenient. But everything was fantastic.and the service was very friendly.

Hotel's Favorite
After all the media coverage on „Venice without mass tourism“ my wife and I did a weekend trip and had the BEST experience EVER! Venice is beautiful without the massive crowds and everyone is even more charming and friendly. The Kempinski San Clemente Palace is on an island close to Piazza San Marco and connected with a permanent and complimentary shuttle boat. This is so convenient, because after exploring the buzzing city and lively places you jump on the boat and enjoy a luxury ride of 10min to that wonderful retreat. The hotel is in an ancient building that has been restored beautifully (while you don’t have to miss any amenity like air con etc). The large park has many beautiful spots to sit / read or even do a jogging round in the morning! We stayed in other hotels before but this combination of exclusive retreat and close proximity to the historic centre is marvellous. And right now is problem a once in a lifetime chance to see the city as it should be.

Like staying in a palace! Loved the boat ride back and forth the hotel from the main part of the city and the gorgeous views. Wonderful to stay in the quiet of the hotel but be just a quick ride away from everything. Wonderful landscaped grounds. Just avoid taking the ghost tour while staying here -- that made it so hard to sleep on our last night there ;-)

My family and I visited San Clemente as our first trip in the post-COVID era. Our pandemic-birthed fears were eased upon arrival as the staff pride themselves on their commitment to keeping San Clemente clean and safe for all their guests. While I thoroughly enjoyed every square inch of this amazing property, one space remains my absolute favorite—the bar! The amazing manager/bartender, Costi, has created a truly fantastic bar. On display is the perfect balance between friendliness and professionalism; the bar was somewhere you could go for some great entertainment as well as a great drink. I would highly recommend anyone considering a stay at San Clemente to book a room there as soon as possible.
