Aman Grande Canal - Venice
Having spent a couple of nights at the Aman Canal Grande, I can personally assure you that it is very much up to the expected standards of elegance and excellence. In fact, this would have to be among the five most amazing hotels I’ve had the pleasure of visiting.
When you think Aman, images of neutral, modern Asian-inspired accents come to mind. Meticulously restored, original moldings, frescoes, friezes and fittings contrast with subtle minimalist furnishings. The hotel is set within a 16th century palazzo moments from Venice’s iconic Rialto Bridge. Most rooms boast expansive views of the canal and the hotel’s waterfront garden (the palazzo is one of the few in Venice with a private garden).
The décor and atmosphere here are impeccable, but it’s the service that truly sets the Aman Canal Grande apart. The staff are genial, knowledgeable, eager to fulfill every request, and spot-on in recalling and catering to particular tastes. Despite the palazzo’s grand scale, there are just 24 suites. You’ll rarely encounter another guest.
One of the breathtaking rooms is the Alcova Tiepolo Suite. Romance comes in the form of gilded stucco reliefs, Chinoiserie paintings and Tiepolo’s packed ceiling fresco, above the bed. The Palazzo Stanza room has great canal views.
