“Out of this world!”

 

Absolutely amazing!

This hotel is set on its own private island giving you a real sense of being somewhere private & intimate – a real bonus as Venice can be crowded in high season. The buildings are old (a beautiful former monastery) but well maintained. Rooms are fitted in classical Venitian style but clean and with space.

The large grounds and garden are immaculate and there is space to go for a walk and seating to just sit and take in the atmosphere. There is an outdoor pool so you can laze around. The frequent hotel boat service will get you into Venice in 15 minutes with the added bonus of being able to enjoy the scenery with the trip. I called it the “party boat” because you would leave the hotel as strangers but return as friends having enjoyed the charms of this wonderful city. Note: if you get sea sick or motion sickness, you may not enjoy this as the Venetian waters are busy so the waves can be choppy. There is no way on or off the hotel without using the water transport.

There is a decent sized pool with beds around so you can mix the sun and cocktails in the day and take in Venice by evening and night, avoiding the crowds.

Food and beverage service was good and the setting of the hotel in the evening sunset is magical. The bar is very cool and a great place to end your evening as it is busy with a great mix of locals and hotel guests.

A real couples place so if you want to add to your list of dream destinations – add it to your bucket list. You will not be sorry.
