Just in time for spring, a new hotspot for wanderlust and a longing for Italian flair opens today: San Clemente Palace Kempinski Venice.
Located on a private island in the Venetian lagoon, this is where a city trip meets a relaxing vacation, romance meets culture, history meets cuisine, La Serenissima meets the spaciousness of parks. San Clemente Palace – Venice with that certain something extra.
“It is very exciting to welcome the first guests to San Clemente,” says Benedikt Jaschke, General Manager of San Clemente Palace Kempinski. “We have worked so hard for this moment and now it’s finally here: we can be hosts and are very curious about the reactions of our first visitors. San Clemente Palace Kempinski has so much to offer and we are very much looking forward to our first season in Venice.”
A total of 190 rooms and suites offer privacy, relaxation and tranquility – surrounded by generous parkland or with views of the imposing backdrop of the city, the lagoon or the Lido. Classic decor, warm colors, traditionally high ceilings and spacious corridors that are second to none meet typical Venetian elements and evoke memories of past times.
A special highlight: the newly created San Clemente Suite. It is the centerpiece of San Clemente Palace Kempinski – a living room, a bedroom and two bathrooms for endless possibilities. The suite is located in the former monastery laundry and combines historical elements such as the open, dark ceiling beams with modern amenities. Several large panoramic windows offer the best possible view of Venice.
The San Clemente Suite can be expanded with the neighboring Navigante Suite, the second-largest suite in the hotel at 100 square meters, as well as five Navigante Junior Suites and the Marco Polo Suite, which are also located in the same part of the building. The result: a private Palazzo a Venezia that is completely independent of the hotel and yet offers all the amenities of a luxury resort.
Even a completely discreet arrival and departure is possible: directly in front of the Navigante wing there is a private boat dock suitable for yachts up to 35 meters long.
Three restaurants and three bars provide the perfect culinary experience – in the tradition of world-famous Italian cuisine. The Insieme restaurant is dedicated to the perfect start to the day and a diverse breakfast. The gourmet restaurant Acquerello offers modern creations and Italian haute cuisine with breathtaking views.
La Dolce is located in the park of San Clemente Palace Kempinski and stands for Mediterranean classics such as antipasti or grill specialties.
The private island has numerous leisure facilities and is therefore the perfect place for relaxation and entertainment at the same time: a tennis court and a golf practice course, a heated outdoor pool, a jogging track and the Kempi Kids’ Club are available.
