I have always wanted to stay in this hotel but on previous visits it was closed during the Winter. From the moment the train arrived in Santa Lucia and we were met by the Cipirani staff member I knew we had made the right choice. There are many luxury hotel in Venice but only one like this. The boat ride along the Grand Canal is a great passage to the hotel and we were greeted at the dock of the hotel by porters who swept us away through the lovely landscaped front entrance.The rooms were not quite ready so we were escorted to the beautiful poolside restaurant for a relaxing lunch. The pool is the largest hotel pool in Italy and is heated to 82F with saltwater. Just a delight. Upon entering our room, escorted by a staff member, we were shown all of the features and then taken outside to the enormous terrace we had overlooking the pool and a portion of the gardens. All of the gardens were in full bloom and looked spectacular yet welcoming. The breakfast in the restaurant or on the terrace or in your room is superb and offer EVERYTHING you could possibly want. what a way to start your day before touring Venice. The hotel boat runs 24/7 back and forth to St.Mark's and is complimentary. For those with no deire to tour or shop then the hotel is a perfect place to spend the day with a full service spa and gym and plenty of places to walk to and explore. This was a part of Venice I did not know existed. the highlight of the trip was dinner in Cips, the casual restaurant, with the most impressive view of Venice. What a perfect ending to a vacation. It juts out on the water and even moves slightly as boats pass by.So many choices on the menu will allow and appetite to be satisfied. There is a new gourmet restaurant also within the hotel but we did not have time to experince it during our two days. The staff is well trained, well informed and totally understand the meaning of guest service. The grounds and public areas are in pristine condition. You MUST vist Belmond Hotel Cipriani.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- If Venice is a theatre, Belmond Hotel Cipriani is the Royal Box. It is a resort: a way of life, an island apart, in every sense. And it involves all the senses that make a stay unforgettable. Five minutes by private launch from St. Mark’s Square, on the tip of the Giudecca Island, Belmond Hotel Cipriani is in the heart of the city but removed from its hustle and bustle. Its 95 rooms and suites are exquisitely decorated with magnificent views over the open lagoon, the gardens and St. Marks. A day here is made up of layers of wonderful experiences, from luxuriating beside the Olympic-size swimming pool (the only one in central Venice) to relaxing with a signature treatment at the Casanova Wellness Centre. The Casanova gardens offer an oasis of peace, perfect for a Thai Chi session before heading off with a private boat for a personalised excursion in the lagoon. Choose to dine at the new Oro Restaurant for a timeless dining experience or at the iconic Cip’s Club admiring the view on St. Mark’s.
