New year, new look
Renovations carried out over the winter period are now complete, and JW Marriott Venice is delighted to unveil new features for 2017. The resort now boasts an enlarged family pool – the ideal place for parents to relax and sunbathe, while the hotel’s younger visitors enjoy this new and improved space. The Venezia Ballroom in the hotel’s Conference Center has also undergone a revamp. Redesigned by JW Marriott Venice’s award-winning architect Matteo Thun, the Ballroom’s design draws on warm Mediterranean tones, intended to remind of the contemporary-chic colour palette used across the resort. Flooded with natural light, the new space is able to welcome up to 380 guests for conventions and conferences.
Mediterranean bliss at GOCO Spa
For a spa treatment guests won’t forget, JW Marriott Venice’s new olive oil treatment is a must-try at GOCO Spa, Venice’s only spa on the water’s edge with panoramic views across the lagoon. Created specifically to showcase the benefits of olive oil, this unique exfoliating treatment uses Isola delle Rose’s exclusively produced olive oil to nourish and soften skin, and aromatic herbs grown in the island’s own gardens.
Cooking up a storm
New for 2017, JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa will play host to a party of celebrity chefs for a range of exclusive dinners at gourmet restaurant Dopolavoro. Guests will have the chance to savour three dishes from the celebrity chef, and three from Dopolavoro’s own resident Michelin-starred chef Federico Belluco. One of Italy’s youngest and most talented chefs, Belluco was awarded his Michelin star at just 27. Confirmed chefs include Giancarlo Perbellini (Casa Perbellini, 2-star Michelin chef), Terry Giacomello (L’Inkiostro, 1-star Michelin chef) and Marco Sacco (Piccolo Lago, 2-stars Michelin chef).
The new season also sees JW Marriott Venice welcome the winner of Hell’s Kitchen Italy – Chef Carlotta Delicato – to the resort, where she will be showing off her skills in the Sagra Rooftop Restaurant from April to August. The Italian version of the popular American reality TV show, Hell’s Kitchen Italy starring Chef Carlo Cracco will continue to send a new winning chef to the resort every season, bringing fresh flavours and ideas to enhance the already exemplary dining experience on offer at JW Marriott Venice.
One thing that hasn’t changed this year, is JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa’s standing as the ultimate luxury retreat for romantic breaks and family escapes, a world away from the bustle of Venice. General Manager Enrique Tasende had this to add: “The 2017 season looks set to be a great one, as we look forward to welcoming guests for the Venice Biennale, and continuing to position our resort as the go-to luxury retreat in Venice.”
