San Clemente Palace Kempinski Venice

Plus

Italian Cities, Venice

  • Private island resort with swimming pool and stunning views
  • Complimentary ten-minute private boat ride to St. Mark's Square

Located on its own 17-acre private island, San Clemente Palace Kempinski,  provides a welcoming haven away from the hustle and bustle of Venice's centre, yet is only a ten-minute complimentary private boat ride from Piazza San Marco. The formerly abandoned 17th century monastery, once belonging to the Order of the Camaldorese monks, is now, after careful restoration retaining its historic character. Elegant public areas feeding off long corridors are adorned with fine antiques and luxury furnishings. The guest rooms continue to embody their palatial surroundings with use of space, décor and history.

The four large courtyards and the centuries-old garden perfumed with linden trees, cypresses, elms and nettle trees, form the scenic backdrop for the hotel's outdoor swimming pool (normally in use May to early October). Guests can unwind on the terrace and indulge in a fresh seafood barbecue lunch or an aperitif at the La Dolce Pool Bar Restaurant & Grill. For the energetic there is a Technogym, two tennis courts and a jogging track through the park leading up to a small hill where the views over the lagoon and Venice are breathtaking. A truly unique feature of the hotel is its Church of San Clemente, used for evensong, classical concerts and even weddings. A fabulous retreat benefiting from the privacy of its own island, the San Clemente Palace Kempinski is perfectly suited for some glorious rest and relaxation in the heart of Venice.

The hotel has 190 rooms (official rating 5 star). Child prices apply to ages 2-11 years. Minimum stay 2 nights for arrivals on a Fri or Sat completed between 15 May - 26 Jun 20  and 27 Aug - 15 Oct 20.
