We have recently returned home following a fantastic stay at the Cipriani in Venice. This was our second visit there and once again we had a wonderful experience. We had a junior suite with a lagoon view which comprised a very spacious and beautifully furnished open-plan bedroom/living area, a wonderful marble bathroom with enormous bath and roomy terrace with loungers and outdoor chairs and table.
We ate in both the Cips Club and Fortuny restaurants and thoroughly enjoyed both experiences. The Cips Club was particularly fun with very friendly staff and an impressive (and good value) wine list. The Fortuny Restaurant achieved the perfect atmosphere superb food in a setting of relaxed formality.
One thing in particular that has made both our stays in this hotel so memorable has been the staff. They are so friendly and helpful and really make us feel relaxed and at home. We were particularly pleased with the way, when conversing with us, they were able to allow me to practise my Italian whilst also being sensitive to the fact my partner prefers to speak in English. The Concierge was especially helpful in arranging an excursion to Villa Pisani for us, plus providing accurate and helpful information about various places we wanted to visit in the city. We also very much enjoyed the friendliness of the lady who greeted us upon our arrival, the bar staff and the man organising the shuttle boat to and from Venice.
One thing that took us a little by surprise, and would have been helpful to have known in advance, was that there would be an opportunity to leave a gratuity on the credit card upon checking out, which would then be shared between all the staff. We had been leaving tips in the restaurants etc throughout our stay, which of course only rewarded the staff who were looking after us directly. We would do this better next time.

- If Venice is a theatre, Belmond Hotel Cipriani is the Royal Box. It is a resort: a way of life, an island apart, in every sense. And it involves all the senses that make a stay unforgettable. Five minutes by private launch from St. Mark’s Square, on the tip of the Giudecca Island, Belmond Hotel Cipriani is in the heart of the city but removed from its hustle and bustle. Its 95 rooms and suites are exquisitely decorated with magnificent views over the open lagoon, the gardens and St. Marks. A day here is made up of layers of wonderful experiences, from luxuriating beside the Olympic-size swimming pool (the only one in central Venice) to relaxing with a signature treatment at the Casanova Wellness Centre. The Casanova gardens offer an oasis of peace, perfect for a Thai Chi session before heading off with a private boat for a personalised excursion in the lagoon. Choose to dine at the new Oro Restaurant for a timeless dining experience or at the iconic Cip’s Club admiring the view on St. Mark’s.
