Occupying a private island in the heart of the lagoon, the historic property marks the official debut of the St. Regis brand in Venice.
Combining celebrations of the re-opening with the start of the 56th Venice Art Biennale, the landmark property is establishing itself as the perfect base to explore the arts with a huge open-air art display. Open now to guests and art lovers alike, the hotel’s extensive park showcases the works from world-famous artists including Polish sculptor Igor Mitoraj.
San Clemente Island lies in the Venetian Lagoon, just 10 minutes away from Piazza San Marco by boat. San Clemente is part of the Venetian islands which are one of the world’s most intriguing destinations. The island of 6 hectares offers heavenly gardens with Linden, Cypress, Elm and nettle trees. It is an escape from the city center and is a perfect portal to discover Venice. San Clemente was founded in 1131 with the purpose of encouraging “the recovery of the soul and spirit”. This enchanting private retreat still has the original beautiful monastery on premises that has been restored.
