VENICE is set to open the doors to a new private island JW Marriott resort that will boast the largest spa in the city.
Nestled within a picturesque lagoon on Isola delle Rose (Italian for ‘Rose Island’), the 266-room JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa offers views of iconic Venice landmarks including St Mark’s Square and La Serenissima.

Rooms at the JW Marriott Venice will be contemporary in design, a departure from many of the luxurious hotels that play up old Venetian glamour with baroque Italian furnishings and elaborate frescoes.
The opening will mark the brand’s first resort and spa in Europe.
Set across 16 acres, the property will feature fruit arbors, olive groves, restaurants and bars, as well as a cooking school and wine academy.
When complete, the 1,750-meter spa will become the largest in Venice and feature indoor and outdoor aqua-tonic pools, health club, treatment rooms, hammam and luxury spa suite.
Facilities and activities will include canoeing and sailing, while guests will also be able to make their own Murano glass and Venetian masks in workshops led by local artisans.
