Five-star JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa is reopening its lavish doors to guests later this month, ready to welcome visitors to experience its tranquil setting and luxurious services on its very own Venetian private island escape.

The JW Venice VOGA Academy is the resort’s first sports school dedicated to traditional Venetian rowing. Ideal for a fun (and cultural) activity, guests will have the opportunity to learn the unique art of Venetian rowing, both around the Isola delle Rose island and also on some of Venice’s most famous canals.
The two-hour lessons will have guests experiencing the lagoon as the locals do and learn about what was once the only vehicle for transit and transport in the city. Open to individuals, couples and families and can be booked via the resort’s app.

One for the gourmands. Following the success of the previous years, JW Culinary Experiences is back from the 20th May with 10 new guest Michelin starred Chefs – showcasing the best of Italian cuisine over a series of 10 culinary weekends.
The package includes daily breakfast, a Friday night “Starry Aperitif” in collaboration with Chef Giorgio Schifferegger at Sagra Rooftop Restaurant, followed by a Saturday morning cooking class led by the guest chef at the Sapori Cooking Academy.

3 Drop the cubs off at a brand new Kids Club by Bricks 4 Kidz
Families travelling to JW Marriott Venice in 2022 will be able to enjoy a series of new experiences, including paddle court, a bowling alley, and an open-air cinema – where a 3 meter screen will play movie classics for the whole family to enjoy. The Kids Club has been redesigned new for 2022 in partnership with ‘Bricks 4 Kidz’. The resort will offer its younger guests a program of activities around both the resort and the city, helping keep the little ones entertained.
4 Bite into a slice at the pop-up Gourmet Pizzeria
JW Marriott Venice has partnered with Italian pizza maestro Renato Bosco: to bring a pop-up pizzeria to the resort exclusively for the summer 2022 season. Guests will be able to enjoy a selection of hand-made delicious pizzas that made the Veronese Chef famous.
5 Book a table at Fiola, the must-visit fine dining restaurant
Michelin-starred Chef Fabio Trabocchi, widely celebrated among the world’s leading restaurateurs, returns to helm of dining at JW Marriott Venice this year and the resort’s fine dining restaurant Fiola at Dopolavoro Venezia will be reopening on the 14th April 2022.
Guests can indulge in the finest Venetian cuisine with a superb selection of wines where the menu perfectly combines seasonal ingredients from the Rialto market in Venice and the Adriatic Sea, vegetables grown in the garden and locally produced olive oil. The historical building “Dopolavoro” welcomes up to 50 guests in an intimate and elegant setting and is an ideal place to spend pleasant evenings in the cool gentle breezes of the lagoon.
JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa is an oasis away from Venice’s labyrinth of canals and bridges, with lush green spaces and wide open areas where guests can spend days exploring the finest wellness and dining experiences on offer at the resort. All of this just a stone’s throw away from the heart of Venice, making it just a short boat ride away to St Mark’s Square for those wanting to explore the city’s cultural attractions.
