The Langham, Venice to debut on the small Venetian island of Murano
The luxury property will open directly onto the waters of the City of Bridges.
Langham Hospitality Group has revealed will open its first Italian property in 2023. The Langham, Venice will offer direct frontage on the Venetian Lagoon on the small island of Murano – long revered for its centuries-old tradition of glass making – and will be housed in the former Casino Mocenigo, which can trace its legacy to the early 1600s. The historic building is an important illustration of Venetian architecture enriched by important frescoes with classical themes dedicated to music, poetry and love.
Milan-based architecture and design studio Matteo Thun & Partners has been appointed to oversee the extensive renovations at the 138-key property. Design inspiration for the guest rooms and public spaces will incorporate modern amenities inspired by the splendid details in the hotel’s rich history, resplendent frescoes, and breathtaking water views from its desirable lagoon frontage. A defining architectural feature of The Langham is the magnificent courtyard which will showcase the outdoor swimming pool and manicured garden as well as inviting outdoor dining spaces.
When the hotel opens, guests may look forward to two restaurants serving a selection of cuisines and a cooking school where guests can learn the art of fine Italian cuisine. Alfresco bars, one of which will be located on the rooftop, will set the scene for social celebrations, large and small.
Also featured at the hotel will be the group’s signature Chuan Spa providing wellness therapies and treatments based on the ancient healing philosophies of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a fully-equipped fitness centre, an elegant ballroom, and multifunction rooms.
