Guests usually arrive at the Aman Canal Grande Venice by boat, docking at a landing that leads directly into the luxury property. With its soaring ceilings and historic frescos and reliefs, the hall provides a sense of bygone luxury, as well as direct access to the resort's private gardens and a small Boutique specializing in Venetian glassware. A sweeping staircase rises through two levels to arrive at the reception area for the Dining Room, which overlooks the Grand Canal and serves Italian and Asian cuisines. The Yellow Dining Room and the Red Dining Room lie adjacent to the ballroom, with views over the Grand Canal and the resort's Garden Terrace respectively. Named for their color schemes and featuring ceilings painted by the renowned 18th-century artist Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, each room has a number of dining tables and provides an intimate setting within grand surrounds. Rising from the reception area of the Dining Room is a secondary staircase that leads to the fourth level. On this level are the Stanza del Tiepolo and Stanza del Guarana which can be used for private dining and meetings. An elevator provides access to the Roof Terrace. Fronting the Grand Canal is the Garden Terrace, one of very few private gardens on the canal. Mature trees and a quadrangle of verdant green grass provide the ideal setting for a relaxing hour or two, or an al fresco meal in the warmer months. Aman has a second hidden Private Garden with soaring trees that provides a serene setting for resort guests. It also provides walking access to San Polo. Aman offers a total of 24 accommodations with the majority being of unique layout and design. Furniture and furnishings throughout the accommodations are contemporary, yet of a simple aesthetic. Most accommodations provide combined living areas and bedrooms, as well as linked dressing areas and bathrooms. Each room provides a television which broadcasts local and international channels as well as movies and documentaries on demand. A docking station is also included. All accommodations offer a king-sized bed, an armoire with personal bar, a writing desk and either a sofa or twin lounge chairs. There are a total of four accommodation categories, differentiated by design, floor area and view.

Built on water, steeped in history and synonymous with romance, Venice is a fabled destination with a glorious past. A city in northeast Italy, it is built atop 118 small islands separated by winding canals and linked by arching bridges. Once a major power in the Mediterranean, it is known today for the beauty of its setting, its architecture and its artworks. The entire city along with its lagoon is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Travellers to Venice can arrive via road, train (at the Stazione Santa Lucia), ferry or plane (at Marco Polo Airport 12 kilometres outside of Venice). Whatever the means of arrival, guests will be met and transferred to Aman by boat via Venice's canals.
The Stanza del Tiepolo and Stanza del Guarana which can be used for private dining and meetings.
Fine Dining on Site
The Dining Room overlooks the Grand Canal and serves Italian and Asian cuisines.
The property has a small gym offering aerobic and strength-conditioning equipment, an area for free weights and stretching, and commanding views over the city's roofline.
The spa is located, almost secretly, on the third level of the Garden Building. Access is via a small stairwell which leads to a discrete reception area. Dimly lit with low ceilings, the spa exudes the atmosphere of a sanctuary, and provides three single treatment rooms, each with a dressing area and bathroom. One of the treatment rooms has a soaking tub that can be used in conjunction with body scrubs.
Discovering the city by water is an essential Venetian rite of passage. Being poled or paddled gently down a winding canal, ostensibly forgotten by time, is a magical experience as well as the best way to get a taste of the real Venice. Aman offers a waterborne tour of Venice delightfully free of tourist trappings.
Theatre & Museums
The Carnival of Venice is a major attraction, as is the prestigious Venice Biennale. This major contemporary art exhibition takes place every two years and includes the Venice Film Festival – the world’s oldest international film festival.
The Palazzo Stanzas all feature spectacular views of the Grand Canal and many have wonderful architectural details. The majority are located between the second and fifth levels of the palazzo.
