Whether you’re looking for a unique getaway that feels as if you’ve just stepped into a movie set, or are planning a fabulous New Year’s Eve party, there’s no better place than the magnificent Palazzina Grassi in Venice. Baroque Travel tells you why…

Located on the famous Grand Canal, the magnificent Palazzina Grassi offers guests an intimate yet very unique experience. Charming and historic, it’s the place to go if you want to experience the grandeur of living like a true Venetian. It’s private, luxurious and exquisitely designed thanks to famous designer Philippe Starck. It’s a dream come true, an Alice’s Wonderland with a whimsical, modern, Venetian edge.

For starters, there’s no reception area. Guests enjoy a personalized check-in and that is the start of a bespoke experience that is unparalleled.  The three-story hotel still boasts its classical 16th century shell, but like a pearl, the experience and the interior is quite exquisite and decidedly unique.

There are just 26 guest rooms and suites, each exquisitely decorated in a blend of contemporary and romantic Venetian splendor. The furniture is unique, the glassworks by French artist Aristide Najean are dramatic and the collector’s items in each space are sophisticated and decorative.

Your room is just your first experience of the magic that enfolds you at this magnificent hotel. Dining here is a separate delight. The Restaurant offers a luxurious gastronomic retreat, enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. Menus are carefully created to offer contemporary dishes and flavors as well as traditional Italian fare. The Krug Champagne Lounge is where guests go to enjoy a cosy atmosphere and sip bubbly whilst savoring the surreal view of the Grand Canal lit up at night. This is one of only two Krug Lounges in the world, offering a magical atmosphere, luxury and elegance – and excellent champagne, of course.

When the weather’s good, guests head for The Terrace, a secret oasis with one of Venice’s most breathtaking views. Dinner is served here in the warmer months. Talking of food – at this fabulous Palazzina, breakfast is served till noon so that guests can sleep late if they wish, and there’s also a snack menu service available 24/7 for those who want to nibble any time of the day or night.

If you’re planning to be in Venice over the New Year, why not book a stay at Palazzini Grassi and enjoy another unsurpassed experience? Called ‘The Secret Hotel New Year’s Eve’, the hotel offers a most unique and intriguing way to welcome in 2019.

Guests booking this very special package for a minimum of 2 nights will enjoy Continental breakfast daily, a welcome gift on arrival, an exclusive Show Dinner on New Year’s Eve plus access to the Palazzina’s The Club for the New Year’s after-dinner party. Late check-out can be booked depending on availability!
