An island gem complete with Michelin-starred dining
City | Food & wine
First built by the man behind Venice’s famed Harry’s Bar, Cipriani by Belmond has been welcoming French nobles, English aristocrats and European royalty for over half a century. Guests such as Yves Saint Laurent and Hubert de Givenchy were all impressed by the hotel’s impeccable standard of service, which is joined by the likes of a Michelin-starred restaurant, an Olympic-sized pool and a superb spa.
Located on Giudecca Island, this luxury retreat, which boasts the largest gardens of central Venice enjoys a delightful sense of seclusion, while offering easy access to the city centre. The palaces and towers of St Mark’s Square are just a five-minute complimentary boat ride away.
Rooms are appropriately dressed in the hallmarks of Venetian elegance – extravagant light fixtures, floral headboards and carefully curated artworks. Although the accommodations with views of the lush gardens and vineyards are a delight, it’s the ones overlooking the lagoon that are the true highlight. Our top tip? Go for those opposite St Mark’s Square for views of its iconic steeple. The suites are similarly impressive, host to everything from frescoed ceilings and hanging chandeliers to marble bathrooms and opulent Italian fabrics. Most rooms and suites also feature balconies or terraces.
As with any trip to Italy, dining is always a special highlight. And, with its very own Michelin-starred restaurant, Belmond Hotel Cipriani is no exception. Enjoy wine-paired menus, including sumptuous seafood and pure flavours of the region. For something more informal, head to the lagoon-side Cip’s Club with unparalleled views of St Mark’s Square or to the enchanting Giudecca 10, which serves up delicious rustic recipes made using traditional methods. Inspired? Book a cooking course and learn all the secrets of the local cuisine. Speaking of activities, alongside the spa and tennis courts, excursions bring you among the region’s lesser-visited side, from antique wineries and hidden islands to private tours and perfume museums.
