As a city so strongly associated with romance and indulgence, it comes as no surprise that Venice excels when it comes to opulent pampering treatments. The palace-lined canals, haute-couture boutiques and elegant locals bring an unmistakable allure to the serene former republic. Celebrities and royalty have frequented the city for centuries for a reason. Follow in their footsteps and treat yourself to a stay in one of Venice’s world-class spa and wellness hotels, for some undoubtedly deserved pampering.
Housed inside one of the eight major palaces on the Grand Canal, this boutique hotel manages to keep things intimate despite the scale. With just 24 suites, the Aman has devoted the entire third floor to their spa. Rituals here take one of three objectives: grounding, nourishing or purifying. Try the signature foot treatment to soothe achy soles after a day getting lost along the city’s canals. Don’t miss the ceiling frescoes by Rococo darling Tiepolo.
