Radiating a sense of authentic regality and high drama, Masquerade Suite at The St. Regis Venice offers travelers who are in town for the annual Carnivale festival (4-21 February 2023) an opportunity to enjoy the iconic celebration surrounded by refined accessories and a curated selection of framed masks, fashion illustrations and art pieces.
During the carnival, The St. Regis Venice will also be offering Carnival Edition of Arts Bar’s Bartender Nights featuring Giacomo Giannotti, owner and founder of Bar Paradiso, The World's 50 Best Bars 2022; and a bespoke four-course Carvinal Menu at Gio inspired by the Italian tradition of carnival, with every dish evoking regional costumes.
As they dress up with elaborate masks and costumes in their ornately decorated bi-level suite, guests can gaze out of the east-facing windows with views over the adjacent Palazzo Treves and Corte Barozzi, setting the scene for a night filled with romance, adventure and mystery. The suite’s décor, meanwhile, will transport them to the seventeenth-century Venice with its extravagant fashion and decadent balls and parties.
One of The St. Regis Venice’s most unique suites, the 67-square-metre Masquerade Suite brings together carnival legacy, the anticipatory service of The St. Regis butlers, and the spectacular scenery of the city’s most prestigious address – just off the iconic Grand Canal. Upon request, Masquerade Suite may form a two-bedroom apartment when interconnected with a Grand Deluxe Room, allowing for even more space and flexibility and making the luxurious accommodation an excellent choice for anyone looking for a truly standout experience during this year’s carnival.
At Arts Bar, the stories of the Serenissima come alive in imaginative cocktails inspired by the history of the building. Once home to the San Moisè Theatre, a small but highly influential theatre that hosted Rossini operas, Venetian ‘Commedia dell’Arte’ performances and the first cinema projection by the Lumière brothers, in 1868 Palazzo Barozzi was transformed into Hotel Britannia where Monet stayed and painted. In the spirit of continuity, today the bar serves cocktails inspired by renowned artworks associated with Venice.
