SETTING & STYLE
Opening in March 2015 , JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa is a new luxury resort, located on its own private island of Sacca Sessola, also known as Isola delle Rose (Rose Island) in the Venetian Lagoon. Just a 15-minute boat ride will bring you to the centre of Venice and Piazza San Marco (St. Mark’s Square), making the resort a scenic and relaxing retreat from which to explore this beautiful and unique city.
Man-made in 1860, the state-protected Rose Island is one of the largest of the Venetian islands. The island has number of original buildings, which have been incorporated into the overall design of the resort, and now house the stylish rooms and suites, whilst retaining the buildings’ original façades. The old, formal gardens provide the hotel with much of its fruit and vegetable produce. Away from the bustle of the city, the resort focuses on tranquillity, personal service and informal luxury: its low key, contemporary design imparting a sense of harmony and wellness.

Situated in the main building, “Nourish” Restaurant offers an international buffet breakfast, whilst Restaurant “Il Dopolavoro” specialises in sophisticated Italian cuisine, for elegant indoor and al fresco dining.
