A five-star stay at an exceptionally luxurious Kempinski private island retreat, located 10 minutes from St Mark's Square, including breakfast

With enough ancient courtyards, exquisite gardens, Murano chandeliers and Venetian splendour to keep design-lovers wide-eyed for weeks, this former monastery dazzles with history at every turn. But what gives the five-star San Clemente Palace’s Kempinski its stylish edge is the setting, on its own private island of San Clemente just a 10-minute boat ride from Piazza San Marco - the 40,000-square-foot square brilliantly described by Napoleon as ‘the drawing room of Europe’.

Capturing all that is great and good about Venice, it’s easy to see why this revamped resort is a TripAdvisor award-winner. Complete with heated outdoor pool, tennis court, jogging path, golf course, fitness room and consecrated 12th-century church, everything here is as high-end as you’d imagine. This extends to the dining too, by way of three gourmet spots and three laid-back bars for working your way through a rather decent cocktail and champagne menu.

For living la dolce vita, everything is just as fancy on the accommodation front. Each of the 190 renovated rooms and suites has been given a sleek new look that seamlessly blends high ceilings, heritage terrazzo floors, lavish fabrics and classic Venetian décor with inviting modern touches and sumptuous marble-clad bathrooms.

Good to know

The San Clemente Palace’s Kempinski runs a complimentary boat service to and from Piazza San Marco for guests, departing every 30 minutes.

Overlooking either Venice and the lagoon or the island’s park and gardens, each of the 190 renovated rooms is sleek and stylish, with plenty of grand flourishes. All assure high ceilings, Venetian terrazzo flooring, Murano chandeliers, and Italian marble bathrooms, complete with a bathtub and shower.

Superior rooms, which all hold a queen bed, measure 355-355 square feet, while the Venice suite is a whopper at 861-926 square feet and features an elegant separate lounge.

Room amenities:

- Air conditioning and heating
- Flatscreen TV with satellite channels
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
- Marble bathroom with bathtub and shower
- Complimentary toiletries

- Direct-dial telephone

Dining is a sophisticated affair at three unique restaurants. Head to Aquerello or Insieme for locally sourced gourmet dishes with modern Venetian and Italian influences, or hit La Dolce for exquisite antipasti and entrées from the grill and wood-fire oven. For a less formal vibe, try the Clemente Bar for pre- and post-dinner champagne, cocktails and light bites, La Dolce Bar for great afternoon teas, and the Garden Bar for summer drinks and nibbles.


Set on its own private island of San Clemente, you’ll be a 10-minute boat ride from Piazza San Marco and within easy distance of the city’s showstoppers. Must-dos on your doorstop include marvelling at the restored frescoes at the consecrated 12th-century San Clemente Church, overdosing on modern masterpieces at Venice Biennale of Contemporary Art, and walking through the buzzy Rialto fish market first thing in the morning.

Whether you’re a first-timer or returning visitor, don’t leave Venice without taking a clichéd ride on a gondola, touring the striking Doge’s Palace, watching a glass-blowing demonstration on Murano Island, and getting wonderfully lost in the often-empty streets and squares. San Clemente Palace Kempinski is only accessible by the hotel-run boat and water taxi service - not by public transport.
