Guests can count on stellar – and discreet – service at this five-star resort in addition to Michelin-starred dining, an Olympic-sized pool filtered with seawater and gorgeous grounds.
Though not in the heart of Venice’s maze of tiny streets, the Belmond Cipriani’s location offers the best of both worlds from its exclusive spot at the eastern end of the Giudecca island. The hotel’s setting overlooking the lagoon towards St Mark’s Square is a calm oasis where guests enjoy privacy and peace in vibrant Venice. The centre of Venice is easily reached in five minutes with the hotel’s complimentary private launch.
Style & character
The elegant interior harmoniously blends traditional and contemporary details and is enhanced by lovely Venetian accents including Murano-glass pieces, antiques and stylish artwork featuring images of Venice’s picturesque lagoon. Palazzo Vendramin, the 15th-century annexe just across the lush gardens offers a more historical Venetian interior with panoramic views of Venice and St Mark’s Square.
Additionally, the property boasts chic on-site boutiques, multiple restaurants and bars, a wellness centre, and stunning grounds.

Food & drink
Numerous dining options abound, each lovelier than the last. A light pool-side lunch is offered throughout the day. The Cip’s Club restaurant, on the lagoon-side of the Giudecca canal, is favoured by locals for its informal dining featuring Venetian specialities, such as the delicate carpaccio of paper-thin sliced beef.
The Michelin-starred Oro restaurant, designed by Adam D Tihany, is reserved for elegant dining. Prices are not inexpensive but acceptable for a hotel of this calibre. The breakfast features every sweet and savoury option imaginable, a well-stocked buffet plus a full menu offering made-to-order specialities.
