JW Marriott to open island resort in Venice
JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts will open its first Italian hotel in Venice (and first resort in Europe) come March this year. The 266-room property, created in collaboration with award-winning Italian architect firm Matteo Thun & Partners, has an exceptional lagoon location on its own island, with stunning views of St Mark’s Square and La Serenissima.
JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa will combine the very best in contemporary hotel design with the heritage and elegance of its location, bringing the historic buildings and parklands of Isola delle Rose (Rose Island) back to life as a world-class urban resort.
With over 40 acres to explore, guests will experience unparalleled levels of privacy and space. In keeping with JW Marriott’s refined but informal ethos and personal service, the 1,750-metre spa, operated by GOCO Hospitality, is the largest in Venice, offering both bespoke treatments and a range of classic spa rituals from product houses including !QMS Medicosmetics and Amala. It also has an indoor and outdoor aqua-tonic pool, a health club, eight treatment rooms, a hammam and luxury spa suite.
Additional hotel facilities will include a kids’ club and dedicated family pool, water sports such as canoeing and sailing, and a sensational rooftop pool offering dramatic views across the lagoon to St. Mark’s Square, which can be reached by private boat in just fifteen minutes. Guests will also be able to try authentic Murano Glass and Venetian Mask making with weekly workshops led by local artisans.
Rooms at the JW Marriott Venice will start from €395 including breakfast.
