Visitors to Venice rejoice as the San Clemente Palace comes out of hibernation
Following its annual seasonal winter closure, the famed San Clemente Palace Kempinski Venice welcomes guests again for the first time in 2019.
We take a look inside this opulent property and let potential guests in on the Venetian secrets hiding behind the walls.
Venetian oasis at San Clemente
Venice has long been the haunt of travellers, tourists and celebrities alike, but it is universally acknowledged that this water city can be teeming with people at any given moment, especially in the more central areas around St. Mark’s Square.
That’s why many visitors to Venice choose to situate themselves outside the fray of the main area, or even across the water on one of the more isolated islands.
This is the promise the San Clemente Palace Kempinski Venice makes to its guests – privacy, seclusion and the utmost in luxury.
Only a short ride by private boat across the lagoon separates the hotels.
Just a short ride by private boat from the hustle and bustle of St. Mark’s Square across the waters of the lagoon, the hotel exudes Venetian class, style and history.
As a member of the Leading Hotels of the World collection, this exclusive retreat guarantees peace and tranquillity to all its guests.
A slice of classic Venice
The private island of San Clemente is home to this unique hotel.
Occupying a classic Venetian building located right on the lagoon’s waterfront, the San Clemente Palace Kempinski Venice boasts 190 guest rooms and suites, which are carefully executed in a timeless and stylish manner.
Disembark from the private boat from central Venice and enter the property through manicured gardens replete with colourful flowers and the gentle light falling through the trees.
The interior of the hotel is an exercise in classic opulence, with gilded mirrors, eye-catching antique furniture and thoughtfully curated artwork permeating both the common areas and the guest rooms.
The rooms benefit from unparalleled views over the lagoon towards Venice, and the neutral tones that characterise the bedrooms are set off with elegant gold flourishes.
Three iconic restaurants offer guests the finest in Italian cuisine, both contemporary and traditional.
The San Clemente Palace also has the honour of welcoming Michelin Star chefs Hendrik Otto and Maike Menzel this May, two events which will certainly be a draw for foodies of all stripes.
Guests can also luxuriate in the quiet oasis of the island’s park, stay active on the outdoor tennis courts and swimming pool or rejuvenate in the state-of-the-art spa and wellness centre.
