“Heaven on earth”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Enjoyed the most wonderful 3 night stay at The Cipriani with my husband and two children. After arriving in Venice on the Orient Express I wasn't sure any hotel could live up to the glamour and opulence we had got used to on the train but The Cipriani did and more. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home. We had two suites both with balconies overlooking the lagoon which were comfortable, spacious and had everything we needed for an enjoyable and relaxing stay. It was so lovely to retreat to The Cipriani late every afternoon after exploring busy but beautiful Venice and enjoy a dip in their wonderful pool, a laze in the sun and a cool drink from the bar. We enjoyed an informal dinner in the pool bar one evening when there was a tremendous storm which stopped most guests from venturing outside of the hotel and we had the most wonderful meal on our last night at Cip's Club - what a stunning place to watch the sun go down and Venice light up. The stroll through the hotel gardens to reach Cips Club was lovely and provided us with some great photo opportunities. Everything about The Cipriani exceeded our expectations and we will be sure to stay again should we re-visit Venice.

We stayed frequently at the Cipriani between 1995/2006 , but felt that it was resting on its laurels and so went elsewhere . This was our first stay since then and the hotel is definitely back on form. We were upgraded to a suite in the Palazzo Vendramin which we loved and the views towards St Marco are breathtaking .The long overdue renovation of the restaurant , renamed as Oro , is a great success and we had an excellent dinner with very charming but professional service . The charming bar staff deserve particular mention and we're looking forward to seeing them again soon !

The hotel is characterised by old world charm. The service is impeccable and friendly without being intrusive. The pool area is relaxing and the large salt water pool welcoming after a hot day roaming the streets and canals of Venice. The hotel organised an evening Bacaro (typical Venetian tapas bar) tour by boat and through the back canals of Venice with Stefano which we would highly recommend.

We have just returned from a short stay at the Cipriani where we had a room with a balcony facing the gardens, so peaceful.
As you would expect from a hotel of this class, nothing was too much trouble & service was superb.
The swimming pool (salt water) must be one of the best we have experienced, a delight to spend time in after a day exploring the streets & canals in the city.
Travelling to & from the island by the hotel's complimentary river boat just added to the whole experience.
The only disappointment was the meal on the final evening, there was a spectacular storm so we were slightly compromised in terms of travelling back to the main island, we were advised to eat at 'Cip's Club' by the concierge, the staff were great but the meal was mediocre & certainly not good value for money, we were desperately disappointed, especially as the meal for 4 cost around £350!! (we only had 4 glasses of wine in the cost) We have had much better in establishment's without the Cipriani's reputation.
We followed our stay with a return journey on the Orient Express where the food was world class, we had expected the same of the hotel.
We would certainly recommend the hotel if you are looking for a luxurious stay but unfortunately, we would not be able to recommend 'Cip's Club' for a gastronomical experience or indeed, value.

Room Tip: At the Cipriani all the rooms will be excellent, the rooms overlooking the rear garden will be quiet...

The Cipriani is the perfect hotel to be near, but not in the middle of, Venice. You are close enough to travel easily to the main island by complimentary hotel-provided watercraft but far enough away to have perfect peace and quiet away from the tourist crowds in a lush, beautiful setting with stunning views. Well deserving of its reputation for sophistication and quality. A true world class hotel but not for the bargain conscious traveler.

My wife and I stayed in a beautiful suite overlooking the lagoon for a 3-night stay; our second stay at this wonderful hotel. Better than our last time, mainly because the weather was better. Our only disappointments were that we didn't have enough time to try out their new ORO restaurant or the poolside restaurant as our stay was so short; still, we did enjoy the views from the less formal CIP'S restaurant, and drinks & food at the bar.

We are looking forward to our next visit . . .

We had our (small) wedding in the Antique Garden at Hotel Cipriani in Venice in June 2014. It was an outstanding experience. Before the wedding day, they were very easy and pleasant to work with, so I had a feeling things would run smoothly. The day of the wedding, however, surpassed all of my expectations. The Antique Garden was stunning for a wedding - overlooking the water, with beautiful gardens and sculptures. The food was excellent, the flowers and chair and table settings were stunning, the service was impeccable. I honestly could not believe how well organized, perfectly set up and gorgeous it was. I could not have hoped for a better experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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. Sip a signature cocktail at the Gabbiano Bar or enjoy a light lunch at the Porticciolo Restaurant. A red-clay tennis court, a gym and dedicated Kids' Club with pool are also available. ... more   less
