  • Update: The San Clemente Palace Hotel closed late in 2012. In September, 2013, Turkey's Permak Group acquired the hotel and announced plans to add new facilities. The hotel is expected to reopen in 2014.

photoThe San Clemente Palace is one of the most unusual hotels in Venice. The five-star luxury property occupies the site of the former Camaldolesi Monastery on the 17-acre island of San Clemente in the Venetian Lagoon. It opened in 2003 under the management of the Turin Hotels International Group, and its general manager--Signor Maurizio D'Este--is a native Venetian who has managed other luxury hotels in Venice.

The San Clemente Palace is open year-round for individual guests, groups, and conferences. It's especially appealing in the summer months, when the tranquil island offers a respite from the heat and crowds of Venice's historic center.
