Sexiest Honeymoon Hotels in Venice
Picture the boldness of creating city marble mansions on top of a lagoon! The sheer audacity of the architects of Venice never fails to amaze me. Many consider Paris to be the ultimate city for romance. And I agree Paris is lovely with the Eiffel Tower, the champagne, the history, and the food; it is incredibly romantic. But to me, it doesn't compare to the loving intimacy that permeates the air of the Italian islands that make up Venice. It is the perfect place to relax with your brand new spouse. Spend evenings stealing kisses under the streetlamps or getting lost hand in hand. Venice is genuinely the ideal city to spend your early days of marital life. You can spend all of your time there or stay for two to three days and then nearby cities like Florence, Rome or Cinque Terre. Here are the sexiest honeymoon hotels in Venice.
This gem of Venetian Gothic architecture dates from the 14th Century; Hotel Danieli offers guests mesmerizing views steps away from Venice's main attractions. Their suites are home to a rich collection of precious art and antiques. Whether relishing a romantic dinner at the rooftop restaurant or indulging in a quick bite at the cafe, the dining options are unique.
Topping the Grand Canal, The Gritti Palace claims one of the most magnificent views Venice has to offer. This hotel is a classical treasure where culture blends the Venetian style. With courteous service, a delicious culinary experience, and new venues for relaxation, The Gritti Palace is a polished version of its iconic self.
San Clemente Palace Kempinski lies on a private island a mere ten minutes away from Saint Mark's Square by boat. It is an exclusive retreat with lush gardens, ancient courtyards, and the former monastery of San Clemente that take guests on a journey through time. The hotel's large rooms overlook either the lagoon or the park. Simultaneously, the three restaurants and bars serve culinary delights entirely in line with Italian and Venetian cuisine traditions.
Neo-Renaissance splendor meets polished modern aesthetics at Aman Venice. You'll feel like you are sleeping in a fascinating museum at this 16th-century palazzo. On arrival at the resort's dramatic reception hall, you will be awed by the grandeur. The foyer opens to its private gardens (a rarity for a city set on the water). Traverse the spiral staircase to the gilded dining room that overlooks the Grand Canal. There is also a world-class spa and fitness area. Aman is my favorite hotel in Venice; it is truly a special place.
St Regis is a combination of five palazzi, each of which dates from the 18th or 19th Century. It offers views across some of Venice's most iconic landmarks. Revolutionary in design, The St. Regis Venice blends the historical origins of its neighborhood with striking, custom interiors. Both refined and creative, Venice's cultural curiosity and modern-day innovation against a privileged backdrop.
The marvelous Ca' Sagredo Hotel provides access to "the real Venezia," with an advantageous location overlooking the Grand Canal among the Ca' d'Oro and the Rialto Bridge. Consider choosing the Deluxe Suite, the Grand Canal Library Suite, or the Heritage Suite; each is known for its original decor and frescoes and paintings by Giambattista Tiepolo, Pietro Longhi, and Sebastiano Ricci.
Bauer Palazzo is steps from Saint Mark's Square and famed for its stucco ceilings, gilt-framed mirrors, and chandeliers. Incredible views abound from the hotel's three terraces. Savor a meal at the De Pisis Restaurant, and enjoy an aperitif at the bar or lounge. Don't miss the Michelin-starred rooftop restaurant. For Venice's best views, reserve the outdoor rooftop Jacuzzi for two and soak in the panorama.
Londra Palace possesses more than 100 windows overlooking Saint Mark's Square. Taking in the magnificent view is an enchanting way to start your day in one of the most romantic cities in the world. The Bridge of Sighs and Doge's Palace are within steps of the front door. Tchaikovsky stayed in Room 106 while composing his Fourth Symphony's first three movements. If you want a romantic room, consider a spacious Junior Suite with a lagoon and basin view.
Baglioni offers a romantic ambiance that continues inside this restored hotel. It brims with Murano chandeliers and luxurious, fabric-covered walls. Choose the San Giorgio Suite or the Giorgione Suite to access a private terrace. It is an excellent spot for a romantic candlelit dinner. Try the Canova restaurant if you want traditional Venetian fare.
Belmond Hotel Cipriani is another personal favorite; it lies amid lush gardens and vineyards on serene Giudecca Island. You can be in Saint Mark's Square in 5 minutes by boat, and the sumptuous accommodations capture Venice's soul with Murano glass, antique mirrors, and fabrics by Fortuny and Rubelli. Dine on the Cip's Club restaurant's wooden terrace, facing the Doge's Palace, or in the stunning Michelin-starred Oro Restaurant.
