As befits a property directly on Venice’s glam Grand Canal, the Aman Canal Grande is housed in an impossibly luxurious palazzo. From your arrival by boat at the ancient porta d’acqua, you’re sure to be stricken by the gilded mirrors, marble floors, Murano chandeliers, and original frescoes.
Grand dining room
After such a glamorous entrance, the Aman’s rooms and onsite restaurant have a large check to cash and they certainly deliver. The ‘Red’ dining room, in particular, doesn’t disappoint with magnificent stone fireplaces, white amaryllis centerpieces, and silk draped walls. The menu alternates daily between classic Venetian and Thai. Both make the most of Rialto Market seafood.
The Aman Canal Grande got quite the publicity boost when George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin spent their first night of wedded bliss at the 16th century palazzo. That extra dose of celebrity puts the finishing touch on one of Venice’s most grandiose luxury hotels.
