Best Hotels in Venice, Italy
Dating back to 1131, this private-island property is surrounded by open-air courtyards, a swimming pool, tennis court, golf course and park.
Situated on the private island of San Clemente, a ten-minute boat ride from Piazza San Marco, the San Clemente Palace Kempinski Venice offers a truly exclusive getaway. Guest rooms and suites are traditional but fresh in style, with tasteful furnishings, high ceilings and loads of natural light. Among our favorite rooms are those with picturesque lagoon views, and for those who want to splash out, the San Clemente Suite (located in the former monastery laundry) features a living room, master bedroom and massive windows overlooking Venice. With a selection of restaurants, the hotel is a dining destination unto itself. Signature Acquarello serves refined Venetian fare, La Dolce specializes in grill and wood-fire dishes, and Insieme presents a garden-fresh menu for the start of each day. In addition, the outdoor La Dolce Bar is perfect for sunny days, while the Clemente Bar is an elegant place to enjoy a glass of Champagne. Along with a luxury spa and fitness center, the hotel offers a jogging path, tennis court and pitch-and-putt course for active guests.
