Palladio Hotel Spa Resort
Set on Giudecca, overlooking Saint Mark’s, this sleek spa comes complete with hamman and views back across the water. You can even have a massage in the hotel’s glorious gardens, once part of a sixteenth-century convent.
For a beach break, stay in Jesolo. This swish Richard Meier-designed hotel has a Miami buzz, from the cocktail bar to cool spa. Lap up the 15km-long sandy beach before a bus-and-boat combo to Venice.
