Located next to Venice’s Grand Canal, The Gritti Palace is a historic hotel offering luxury accommodation and top-class service.
History brought to life
Rooms at the hotel contain rare antiques, precious fabrics and Murano glass lighting that brings to life five centuries of Venice history. All rooms and suites offer luxurious comfort and personalised room service. Though staying at the Gritti Palace transports you back to a bygone era, a range of modern amenities are available, including satellite TV, internet access, mini bars and climate control systems. The hotel’s suites offer an extra indulgent experience, with rich furnishings, large windows, polished terrazzos and parquet flooring, as well as state-of-the-art 46” TVs, premier sound systems and game consoles.
Eat and drink in elegant venues
The Gritti Palace offers a choice of elegant restaurants and bars. With views across the Grand Canal, the Gritti Terrace is the perfect place to relax and sample Italian favourites such as pasta, risotto and seasonal seafood. Alternatively, head to the Club Del Doge restaurant and enjoy delectable Venetian cuisine made with fresh, local ingredients. For after-dinner drinks, visit Bar Longhi, which is decorated with paintings by 18th century Venetian artist Pietro Longhi. On sunny days, tables are available outdoors, and live music is played at weekends. Don’t miss the chance to visit the Riva lounge, which is designed like a 1960s Italian yacht and serves cocktails and snacks.
If you’re looking to relax, the hotel’s spa offers a variety of treatments and Turkish baths. Its two suites are available for individuals or couples who want to be pampered together. The hotel also offers cooking lessons at the Gritti Epicurean School, where you can learn how to make classic Venetian and world recipes. For those who want to explore Venice, the concierge service can arrange a number of excursions. The dedicated staff can help you find the best shops, guide you through booking a round of golf at the Venice Golf Club, or organise a tour of the city by foot, boat or helicopter.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
