Built on water, steeped in historyand synonymous with romance, Venice is a fabled destination with a glorious past. You usually arrive at Aman Venice by boat, docking at a landing that leads directly into the palazzo’s Reception Hall. With its soaring ceilings and historic frescos and reliefs, the hall provides a sense of bygone luxury, as well as direct access to the resort’s private gardens and a small Boutique specialising in Venetian glassware.
Fronting the Grand Canal is the Garden Terrace, one of very few private gardens on the canal. Mature trees and a quadrangle of verdant green grass provide the ideal setting for a relaxing hour or two, or an al fresco meal in the warmer months. Aman has a second hidden Private Garden with soaring trees that provides a serene setting for resort guests. It also provides walking access to San Polo.
In the San Polo district, within a short walk of the Rialto Bridge and close to the Traghetto San Tomà for access to Piazza San Marco (St Mark’s Square).
ROOMS & SUITES
Neo-Renaissance grandeur meets refined modern aesthetics at Aman Canal Grande Venice. You’ll feel like you’re sleeping in a beautiful museum at this 16th-century palazzo. Contemporary furnishings mix with sumptuous chandeliers and burnished mirrors in the 24 ultra-luxe rooms and suites overlooing the Grand Canal, including the Alcova suite with its ceiling paintings by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo.
An elevator provides access to the Roof Terrace. Intimate in scale and evident in many of the buildings within Venice, the terrace is best visited early in the morning or at sunset, and is the ideal location to view the rooftops of the city. On a clear day, the Alps are visible in the distance.
A sweeping staircase rises through two levels to arrive at the reception area for the Dining Room, which overlooks the Grand Canal and serves Italian and Asian cuisines. This is situated on the piano nobile – the grandest floor of the palazzo. The main dining area is housed in the ballroom – a gilded room decorated with mirrors, frescos and the original chandeliers.
The spa is located, almost secretly, on the third level of the Garden Building. Access is via a small stairwell which leads to a discrete reception area. Dimly lit with low ceilings, the spa exudes the atmosphere of a sanctuary, and provides three single treatment rooms, each with a dressing area and bathroom.
