A little away from the main tourist beats of Venice, and with the surprise of one of the city's largest private gardens, Grand Hotel dei Dogi carries with it an authentic sense of nobility from its 16th-century origins, coupled with a modern attitude to life.
You arrive the Venetian way – by water taxi to a pier that faces the island of Murano – to discover a hotel that fits harmoniously into its surroundings. Linger among our vivid Venetian colours, feeling the tactile brocade and allowing the wicked glint of crystal, marble and gilt to catch your eye. Then, armed with our top tips for sightseeing, take our complimentary water taxi to St Mark's Square and lose yourself in Venice for a few hours.
We'll be waiting to welcome you back to this peaceful retreat. Our gardens, tumbling with roses; the reward of a ritual in the spa; and finally a candlelit dinner at our secret garden restaurant to end a perfect day.
