Suites will feature minimalist furnishing to offset the exuberant interiors (you can get a further taste of the ornate frescoes and reliefs here). Three Signature Suites will include the Sansovino Suite, with an original 16th century fireplace, the Alcove Tiepolo Suite, with a Chinese-style painted sitting room and bedroom ceiling, and the Grand Canal Suite, with arched windows in the sitting room overlooking the Grand Canal. Unusual for Venice hotels, Aman Canal Grande will have two gardens – a garden terrace facing the Grand Canal and a hidden courtyard, both exclusive to hotel guests.
Private motor launches will take guests from the airport or the train station to the hotel. The dining room serves Italian and Asian cuisine on the piano nobile, the principal floor of a Venetian palazzo with the highest ceilings. Further up, there is a spa on the third floor, with a salon, library, the Stanza del Tiepolo (a game room) and the Stanza Gialla (a private function space) on the fourth floor. A roof terrace has views over the Venice rooftops to the Rialto Bridge.
Reservations are not open yet, but expect to pay €1,000 ($1300) and up per night in high season, not unlike other luxury Venice hotels. We’ll be sure to take you inside for a further look once more images are available, so stay tuned.
