Set in Palazzo Papadopoli, one of the city’s eight monumental palazzos on the Grand Canal, Aman Venice embodies all that is sumptuous and sensuous about La Serenissima. Venice was given the name La Serenissima, meaning the Most Serene, when it was a large trading empire. The term was used to acknowledge Venice as a sovereign state along with other Maritime Republics in the same region.
Rococo works of art are offset by the contemporary restraint of Jean-Michel Gathy interiors, while private gardens – rare in this floating city – are overlooked by opulent dining venues and spacious suites.
Just a short walk away from Piazza San Marco, Aman Venice offers the perfect place from which to explore this romantic city, and to discover the hidden gems of the city while floating away on a traditional gondola.
Aman Venice’s 24 rooms and Signature Rooms, which vary in size and configuration, feature works by a number of Italy’s greatest artists – including 16th-century architect Sansovino and 18th-century painter Tiepolo. Contemporary furnishings complement authentic silk wall coverings, chandeliers, wood paneling, chinoiserie and painted ceilings, while many Suites offer Grand Canal views.
Fresh, seasonal ingredients are at the heart of dining at Aman Venice, where they are transformed into welcoming, authentic cuisine. Dine in the sumptuous Yellow Dining Room, in the hotel's canal-side eatery - a rarity in Venice - or savor a private-dining experience in one of the palazzo's hidden rooms.
Both guests and non-residents are invited to dine at Aman Venice. Contact the team to make a reservation at Arva or book a private-dining experience.
Overlooking the secret garden beside the Grand Canal, Aman Venice’s Bar serves drinks, tea, late-night snacks and light meals – including Aman’s take on classic Venetian cicchetti – from midday until midnight. A homage to Lord Byron, it’s a warm, inviting space, and the romantic roof terrace is the perfect spot to watch the sunset over the floating city. Explore the largest selection of gins in Venice or request a bespoke cocktail from the award-winning resident mixologist.
Wellness & Fitness
Hidden on a third-floor mezzanine within the palazzo, the Aman Spa is an invitingly intimate and tranquil retreat from the bustle of the city. Its three softly lit treatment rooms offer a selection of massages and treatments to balance mind and body, inspired by both Asian healing philosophies and the Italian spa tradition.
The hotel's in-house therapists share their wisdom and knowledge across a variety of treatments, from cranial therapy to deep tissue massage, and from beauty treatments to the best in personal training. Each session with the therapists is tailored to the specific needs and goals of every guest. Relax and refresh, mind, body and spirit in the spa’s intimate and tranquil setting.
From its canal-side perch in San Polo, Aman Venice is a window into the city’s historic glories and modern-day cultural highs. Priceless art and iconic landmarks reveal themselves at every turn – most just a stroll or short gondola ride away, but for the most unique and memorable encounters, turn to Aman’s experts for insider access to the secrets of the city – from bespoke, chef-led tours of the Rialto market to private boxes for the opera at Le Fenice.
Curated and led by the foremost experts in their fields, whether art historians, architects, chefs or engineers, Aman Venice’s privately guided excursions allow you to fully appreciate and absorb the magic of this remarkable ‘floating city’, without the crowds.
