Ca' di Dio, Venice

ASA Luxury is delighted to have been chosen to launch Ca' di Dio, Venice.

The fascinating history of the building that houses Ca' di Dio dates back to 1272 and has welcomed Crusaders, pilgrims and tourists for more than eight centuries. The new five-star hotel is located in a privileged position, at the entrance to the Arsenale area, known as the Contemporary Art District of Venice and the setting for the iconic Biennale. Set on the Riva Ca'di Dio, Venicedi Dio and overlooking the iconic lagoon, the hotel is just a short distance from Piazza San Marco.

The project has been curated by the studio of internationally renowned architect, Patricia Urquiola, with the aim of creating an original and distinctive concept: a Venetian hOuse linked to the history of the city. Although contemporary in style, which is unusual for Venice, when strolling through the common areas, guests will be able to admire the bright travertine and perfectly preserved frescoes. Decorative elements such as Murano glass and boiserie, architectural details and lighting have been selected using small local artisan companies to ensure a strong sense of place.

The hotel offers 57 suites and nine Deluxe rooms, spread over three floors. Ten suites have a sensational view of the lagoon and the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, while two suites enjoy access to a large roof terrace overlooking the San Marco Basin. The hotel features many places for guests to relax whilst staying in Venice; two internal courtyards house the hotel's Alchemia Bar and Essentia Restaurant during the summer months, and the indoor-outdoor VERO restaurant looks onto the lagoon.

The cuisine is inspired by typical Venetian dishes, revisited with a modern touch yet respecting the seasonality of the ingredients, thanks to the hotel's vegetable garden in a third internal courtyard. Ca'di Dio offers a spacious reading room ideal for a moment's peace after a busy day sightseeing, and the Pura spa and wellness area offers an array of spoiling treatments.

Access to the hotel from the side canal entrance will allow for direct docking of boats and water taxis.
