About JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa
Located on Isola delle Rose in the Venetian lagoon, this secluded retreat is a private island resort just a quick boat ride from Piazza San Marco (by complimentary boat transfer, of course). 16 hectares of luxurious gardens enhance the 266 rooms including 33 suites, each divided between five buildings.
The activities on offer are fantastic from mask making to the Sapori Cooking Academy where you accompany the chef to the Rialto market to buy the best to make your menu. There's a gym and two pools, while the GOCO Spa has an indoor and outdoor vitality pool, sauna, bio-sauna, a hammam, 8 treatment rooms and a Spa suite. Dining is top class with the michelin-starred restaurant Dopolavoro, while Sagra has amazing views thanks to its rooftop position. With four bars ranging from a calming coffee shop to the pool side Sagra and the Dispensa, you will not go hungry. Children will love the open space, dedicated pool and great kids club for those aged four and over.
