Belmond Hotel Cipriani Hotel, Venezia
A legendary retreat on the island of Guidecca – a boat ride of just four minutes from bustling Saint Mark's Square. When in Venice, do as the Venetians do: The best way to get to the Cipriani is to take the hotel's own mahogany motorboat. If this is your first time, you will be overwhelmed by the sprawling garden estate. Water sport enthusiasts will skip a beat when beholding the Olympic-size outdoor pool. But what makes the Cipriani truly unique are the genial people you meet here, and their honest hospitality. They account for the soulfulness of the place. Just by looking at you, the staff can tell what you will crave next. Whether it be a water bicycle workout or an exploratory kayaking trip through the canals of Venice – whatever kit you need is always on hand. If you prefer to take it easy, just take a spot on the waterfront patio of "Cip's Club" and enjoy the view of the Piazza San Marco – while remaining safely out of reach of the tourist crowd. In the evening, you sit back, listen to the piano chords, and let chief bartender Walter Bolzonella mix you a "Buona notte," a drink he created together with George Clooney, who is a regular guest here. Working your way through the second one, you will be read to make a wise decision and extend your stay at the Cipriani.
