If Venice is a theatre, then Hotel Cipriani is the Royal Box. It is a resort: a way of life, an island apart, in every sense. It involves all the senses that make a stay unforgettable. Four minutes by private launch from San Marco, on the tip of the Giudecca Island, the Cipriani is synonym for the dolce vita, Venetian style. There are 95 Rooms & Suites sharing a view to be seen nowhere else, restaurants to please the finest palates and impeccable service await you.
Hotel Cipriani's heated Olympic size swimming pool (32 x 19 metres) is the only one in central Venice, and has filtered salt water. The pool area is also the centre of attention for some spectacular events at the Cipriani, like the Redentore Feast held in July each year. An evening of dining and entertainment around the pool ends with the spectacular firework display that can be viewed from the Fondamenta delle Zitelle.
From spring to autumn, the Poolside Restaurant serves alfresco, buffet-style lunches and snacks, including an array of regional specialities, grilled delicacies and a wide selection of beverages. This informal snack restaurant is the ideal place to enjoy a light lunch between one swim in the pool and a lazy afternoon in the sunshine or exploring Venice - its location just on the lagoon borders has an incomparable and relaxed view.
Bars: There are 3 bars at the Hotel Cipriani: (1) The Gabbiano Bar is a brand new bar that awaits Cipriani's clients. It's one of the most famous meeting points in Venice and it is full of grand style. Facing the most unique pool in Venice, the Gabbiano Bar aims to become the landmark of the Hotel Cipriani, the gathering spot for clients and venetians - the place to see and be seen. Enjoy an aperitif before dinner, prepared and served by our head barman Walter Bolzanella, or an after-dinner drink along with the stars and celebrities in the romantic Piano Bar. (2) The Fortuny Bar overlooks Cipriani's enchanting gardens and the lagoon. Here their skillful barmen will mix delicious seasonal fruit-juice based cocktails and long drinks (Bellini, Tiziano, Roger, Mimosa) or prepare your own choice of beverage. Music is played from early evening by the resident pianist. (3) The Pool Bar is open from spring to autumn and serves delicious cocktails and a wide selection of beverages on the patio or by the pool. A refreshing cocktail is the perfect way to enjoy the magnificent views between dips in the pool.
Circolo Golf Venezia: The only Golf Club in Venice, was created more than 70 years ago after an idea from Henry Ford, who arrived in Venice with his golf clubs and bag and was surprised not to find a golf course. Located on the south part of the Lido island, in the Alberoni area, is an area of 100 hectars similar to the scottish links. During the years the course was enlarged to a beautiful 18-hole golf course (72 par), an enchanting place bordered by aged trees and little lakes. It is considered to be one of the most prestigious golf courses in Italy. The club can be reached in 40 minutes by private boat from the Hotel.
Private Boat: As Venice is a city made of more than 100 islands, there's no better way to explore it than by boat! The centre of the city has enchanting canals and corners, including the magnificent Grand Canal, where the most beautiful Palazzi are - it was always the first thing visitors to the city would see. Outside the city centre the lagoon has an incredible number of little islands, populated or not, with evocative names - San Francesco del Deserto, San Lazzaro degli Armeni, Sant'Erasmo. Everyone knows the three most famous islands, Murano with its glass factories, Burano with the colorful houses and Torcello with the famous Basilica. You can explore the beauties of the lagoon with the Cipriani's own private boat Shirley, a beautiful wooden boat with a charmant captain available upon request. You can personalize your itinerary and enjoy at your own time your favorite places.
Hotel Cipriani offers a wide choice of superbly appointed suites and rooms exquisitely decorated with magnificent views over the open lagoon and the gardens.
