  • About this holiday

    The Belmond Hotel Cipriani is considered to be one of the world's greatest hotels, situated amid beautiful gardens on the Giudecca Island just across the lagoon from Venice. The bedrooms and suites are tastefully decorated and impeccably maintained, while the dining terrace stretches out into the water and offers guests even more spectacular views. A private motorboat service is available to take guests across the water, though such a beautiful hotel is likely to keep you for your entire stay.

    Our opinion

    The Belmond Hotel Cipriani is a legendary hotel in an exquisite location in Venice.

    Hotel description

    Situated amid its own beautiful gardens on the island of Giudecca, the Belmond Hotel Cipriani is considered to be one of the world’s greatest hotels with its elegantly decorated bedrooms overlooking San Giorgio island, the Casanova garden or the lagoon. A private motorboat service is on call to guests for the five minute crossing to and from St Mark’s Square, 24 hours a day. Completed in 1958 by Giuseppe Cipriani, the hotel quickly started to distinguish itself in all respects, with its Olympic-size swimming pool, the only swimming pool in the centre of Venice, its beautifully located bedrooms, its gastronomic restaurant and its high standards of service. Amongst the facilities of the hotel much appreciated by guests are the Giudecca 10 restaurant, serving Venetian specialities on its terrace overlooking the lagoon, the Oro restaurant, the Gabbiano Poolside Bar - a popular rendezvous for Venetians and hotel guests alike - and Cip’s restaurant which has views towards St. Mark’s Square. The suites in the Palazzo Vendramin and connecting Palazzetto, two 15th Century buildings linked to the Hotel Cipriani through an ancient courtyard and flowered passage-way, are ideal for guests seeking greater privacy and butler service. These splendid annexes are at the disposal of those guests for whom privacy is an essential requirement. Exquisitely situated the Belmond Hotel Cipriani combines beautiful decoration and luxury facilites making it perfect for exploring Venice.
