JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts has seen its new hotel, JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa, soft opened ahead of its grand opening celebration on June 24th.
The 250-room property was designed in collaboration with award-winning Italian architectural firm Matteo Thun & Partners and combines the very best in contemporary hotel design with the heritage and elegance of its premiere location on its own private island, Isola delle Rose (Rose Island).
The hotel buildings have been sensitively refurbished by Matteo Thun & Partners to incorporate sustainable, modern and elegant design, bringing the historic buildings and parklands of Isola delle Rose back to life as a world-class urban resort.
A destination in itself, the hotel will offer an unparalleled resort experience with facilities that include an extensive spa, rooftop infinity pool and four restaurants including the fine dining Italian restaurant, Doplavoro Dining Room.
Guests can choose from five distinct accommodation experiences, each offering a unique ambience and view – The Hotel with its 191 guest rooms, most with wide glass walls and private balconies overlooking the extensive cultivated gardens beyond.
La Residenza, with its 12 guest rooms designed in a fresh Mediterranean style, featuring parquet flooring in soft earthy tones that lead out to private gardens by the spa and lagoon.
L’Uliveto (opening late April) presents a rural garden setting with its 26 guest rooms and views over the ancient olive groves.
La Maisonette (opening late April) offers 20 split level suites all with private patios and gardens and some with pools overlooking the canal, olive groves and church. Lastly La Villa Rose, an exclusive private retreat with two bedrooms set in a private garden with a pool.
“The opening of our first property in Italy marks a time of great growth and development for the JW Marriott brand and this will be celebrated by a spectacular opening event in June,” said Mitzi Gaskins, vice president and global brand manager for JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts.
“The new JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa exemplifies the elegance and service that have become synonymous with our brand worldwide, incorporating modern design elements with authentic Venetian offerings to create a truly genuine experience in a culturally rich market.”
