The San Clemente Palace Kempinski is set on a private island in the heart of the Venice Lagoon, just a ten-minute boat ride from St. Mark’s Square via private launch. The San Clemente Church, built in the 12th century, reminds visitors of the monastic settlement that once flourished here. Set in a centuries-old park and featuring antique courtyards, the hotel is the perfect retreat, with all rooms and suites providing a stunning view of Venice, the lagoon, the gardens, or the courtyards.
The San Clemente has an understated elegance and an austere tone. The main building houses the majority of rooms and suites with some more private suites dotted around the gardens. Compared to other hotels in Venice, San Clemente is blessed with space and makes a grand impact with its wide corridors and high ceilings.
Given Venice’s history as a destination for classic and contemporary art lovers, the hotel collaborates each year with a variety of artists to exhibit their work in the grounds.
