Lagoon retreats

Private island perks: JW Marriott: “This is less urban bolthole, more holiday hotel with all the trimmings (three pools, a kids’ club, watersports, volleyball on the lawns).” - Conde Nast Traveller  

Celebrity favourite: Belmond Hotel Cipriani: “Steeped in Venetian style, it is known for interiors decorated in exquisite local artefacts and the most fabulous swimming pool in the city.” - British Airways  

Industrial renovation: Hilton Molino Stucky: “The striking building was a former flour mill dating back to 1884 and has become a landmark in its own right.” - Daily Mail  

Country inn comforts: Locanda Cipriani: “Not to be confused with the luxe hotel of the same name, the charming Locanda Cipriani on the tiny island of Torcello is a marvellous time-warp of a place set in a glorious garden.” - Simon Seeks

Gourmet resort amid the vines: Venissa: “This chic restaurant-with-rooms serves some of the most exciting food in Italy, and has been known to out-dazzle Venice’s canals, treasures and basilicas for foodies in the know.” - I-escape
