Why Stay Here?
Ca’ di Dio, part of the VRetreats Collection, is a hidden boutique retreat situated in the heart of Venice at the entrance of the city’s contemporary art district, Arsenale, where the famous Art Biennale is held. Newly opened in August 2021, the hotel seamlessly blends its luxuriously contemporary interiors – rich in hand-made details from local artisans – with the restored historical features of the building, parts of which date back to 1272. What was once an ancient church is now the hotel’s welcoming lobby area, which leads to a main courtyard. Ca’ di Dio has been listed as one of the best new hotels in the world in Conde Nast Traveller’s 2022 Hot List.
Every detail within the 66 rooms and suites showcase Italian design, from jewel-bright Murano glass lamps, to fine, locally made fabrics, textile panelling and marble-clad bathrooms. They have prime views either overlooking mimosa and magnolia trees in the hotel’s peaceful courtyards or the lagoon with passing gondolas. The two Altana Suites enjoy a panoramic view of the iconic San Giorgio and the lagoon from their private terrace. The hotel is suitable for families and dog-friendly rooms are available.
Guests can savour delectable Venetian dishes at the charming outdoor VERO Restaurant, a supremely elegant space with stunning views over the lagoon. Authentic seasonal dishes served for lunch and dinner are inspired by traditional local cuisine and the produce, such as pasta, bread, olive oil and butter, are handmade and sourced from local suppliers, as well as from the hotel courtyard’s vegetable garden. Enjoy a quick bite in the peaceful courtyard of Essentia Restaurant, set amongst mimosa trees, and a classic cocktail in the Alchemia Bar or the luxuriously furnished Reading Room.
Expert assistants are available to arrange exclusive experiences and itineraries for guests to uncover the cultural, historical and artistic secrets of this special city, whether on foot or by gondola in classic Venetian style. They can organise everything from individual visits and workshops at an LP glass factory to selecting personalised masks and attire at authentic ateliers for private carnival parties.
As of 2022, the hotel has become part of the ‘Considerate Collection’ of Small Luxury Hotels of the World due to their commitment to sustainability and social corporate responsibility.
