The Gritti Palace

The majestic Gritti Palace re-opened its legendary doors on February 1st, 2013 following a significant and extensive restoration. With attentive service, a delectable culinary experience, and new avenues for relaxation and pleasure, The Gritti Palace is a refined version of its iconic self.

Following the complete restoration, The Gritti Palace features 61 luxurious guest rooms and 21 sumptuous suites, including suites with impressive canal views which reflect the intimacy of a private residence.

Set on the Grand Canal, The Gritti Palace’s famous terrace continues to be the social hub of Venice, designed to bring back the elegant wooden decks of Italian yachts in the 1930s, with polished wood and gleaming stainless steel accents.

Since 1949 gastronomy has played an important role in the history of The Gritti Palace. The Longhi Bar features some of the best cocktails in Venice, an outstanding soufflé menu, as well as a Venetian Cicchetti experience, ideal for sharing and late-night lounging. Club Del Doge Restaurant celebrates Venetian culinary traditions and the best risotto in Venice, Hemingway’s favourite. The Gritti Epicurean School, informal Venetian open kitchen,  since  1975  has  hosted  wine  tastings,  cooking workshops and celebrations; today the school continues  to  be  a  place  to learn,  taste and  celebrate  indigenous home cooking and  fresh products  from  the  region.

A blissful sanctuary awaits visitors to the Acqua di Parma - Blu Mediterraneo SPA, where the bespoke treatments and massages are enhanced by the signature fragrances produced by this icon of Italian lifestyle.
