JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa
With its labyrinth of canals, bridges and lush green spaces Venice has long been a dream destination for honeymooners. Away from the crowds is a secret escape that offers a whole new luxurious way to enjoy the city. The five-star JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa is located on its own private island resort, Isola delle Rose, a short boat hop from Venice’s main square. The resort offers the main hotel and a more secluded cluster of residences known as The Retreat, designed with newlyweds in mind where you’ll get your own private garden and private breakfast.
